About the Book

The Derry Boy and the Egg


The Derry Boy is primarily the story of the author, and it tells of his childhood years, his salvation, and the faithfulness of God through the later ups and downs. The book includes items of historical interest that may be new to some readers. The story also records the involvement of the Porter family in the lead-up to the Christian ministry in which the author and his wife eventually became involved.

The Egg is the story of a memory that took Roy and Anne Porter on a journey to Switzerland in order to become part of a ministry that would see thousands of children and young people and, indeed, many adults come to faith in Christ. The egg was Anne’s memory; the ministry came about as a direct call from God to Roy. The book not only tells of the role of Roy and Anne Porter in this ministry, but it also tells of how their family also became involved. The Egg is written as an encouragement to other Christians in ministry and, most importantly, for the glory of God.

About the Author

Roy was an engineering supervisor with a large American synthetic fibre company, his wife Anne was a midwife. They both then resigned from full time employment to become missionary directors with Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF)®. Their ministry was to children and teenagers in Northern Ireland, Inishown, Co. Donegal, and in the Isle of Man. Now retired, Roy is the author of children’s short stories, Christian novels and devotionals. Anne supports him as reader and distributer.

All profits from Roy’s books go to support church-based outreaches and various worldwide missionary organisations.

Roy’s new book, a novel – ‘The Ayre Conspiracy’, whose main characters are Christians, is set in the Isle of Man but involves its characters in murder and intrigue in the UK, Ireland and Africa. The Ayre Conspiracy is currently available from Gardners and on Amazon.
