Andrew and Jacqueline have been married for over 26 years and have two adult children. They have a deep passion to see healing and restoration in marriages and have been facilitating LAM workshops whenever possible. Facilitating LAM workshops have given them the opportunity to experience the work of the Holy Spirit in bringing freedom to couples desiring breakthroughs for their marriages.





David and Ruth Watson – LAM Ambassadors

David and Ruth WatsonDavid and Ruth Watson were married in January 1971. They are blessed to have two married daughters, a married son and a single daughter and seventeen grandchildren – so far!!!   They have spent many years ministering to people of all ages and while that ministry brought its rewards, their marriage suffered because Godly boundaries were lacking.

In 2014, while visiting their youngest daughter, a BSSM student in Redding USA, they attended a Love After Marriage five day intensive resulting in a journey of challenge and change which continues until the present.  In 2015, they returned to Bethel to attend a Spirit Connection intensive and were so blessed that they felt compelled to share with Brisbane couples the wonderful news “that heaven wants to help” those who long for more in their marriage.

In the courses they’ve run so far, the breakthroughs have continued and it has been a great joy to see other couples also receive the restoring and healing touch of Father.


 Deon and Marion Hunt – LAM Ambassadors

Deon and Marion married in 2010 having both endured the pain and trauma of divorce. Deon became an instant father of three teenage girls (scary indeed!)
They attended a LAM workshop within the first year of their marriage and experienced healing and breakthrough, both individually and as a couple.

After leading LAM 1 and 2 they were invited to attend SCT in Redding CA in 2014. They returned even more passionate about partnering with Holy Spirit and NHM to see individuals and couples set free from any hindrance or bondage that would prevent them from experiencing the marriage God desires for them.

They personally use the tools they learned through NHM and continue to be set free from anything that doesn’t align with Kingdom and God’s best for their marriage.

Simon and Sharee were married in 1994 and have four children.   They first attended Love After Marriage in 2012 following a season of relational challenges.  They are experienced in facilitating both LAM1 & LAM2.  Love After Marriage equipped them with the tools for building intimacy and connection, taking their relationship from hurt to wholeness.  The breakthrough was two-fold, with their family also being impacted in a powerful way.

In partnership with Holy Spirit, Sharee and Simon are committed to not only deepening their love and intimacy but to seeing other couples experience the restoration and emotional, spiritual and sexual oneness that is possible with God.

They long to see marriages set free to be all that God intended and know that nothing is impossible with God.


Brett and Tracy Hilton – LAM Leaders

Brett and Tracy were married in 1998 in Esperance and have 5 Children and 3 Grandchildren and now reside in Tuart Hill in Perth WA
They have been involved in Ministry for over 20 years working with People who struggle with Life Controlling issues such as addiction.  They first attended a LAM Intensive in July 2014 and were profoundly impacted by the depth and honesty that LAM brought about.  They thought they were simply going to the Intensive to support another couple and would receive a tune up for their marriage.  What they received was a complete life-changing overhaul. It was after this that their desire increased to see couples and families walk in the freedom that is available thorough this Holy Spirit led course.  They still use the Lam tools and desire to both continue to have a Godly, Spirit Led marriage that is a witness to others.
