It’s worth a thought


Terry Waite


Terry’s life has often been surrounded by trouble. He was born just months before the start of World War 2 and then started his career as an education advisor for his church in the UK. Following this, he moved to Africa and took up a position of training advisor in adult education. It was while living in Uganda that Terry learnt his negotiating skills attempting to deal with Idi Amin and then after the coup d’etat he watched the break down of society and witnessed terrible atrocities being committed. On a few occasions Terry and his wife barely escaped with their lives.

Following this, Terry then spent years travelling and assisting with negotiations in many war-torn areas of the world. In January 1987 while attempting to negotiate the release of some Americans and English citizens in Beirut, Lebanon he himself was abducted and held as hostage. He was locked up in a dark cell by himself and kept in chains and often blindfolded for almost five years.
