Reaching youth whose needs constantly change with Biblical truth that never changes.  
 
  David and Cheri Kelso

A
t the age of 5, David was led to Christ by his father, who had recently trusted Christ himself.  In his early 20's, recognizing God's call to full-time ministry, David joined a team that founded the work of Word of Life in Portugal.

Cheri received Christ at the age of 12 at Word of Life in New York.  Upon completing Bible school, she and David were married in 1979 and accepted for themselves Joshua's personal challenge, 
"As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" (Joshua 24:15).

In 1985, the Kelsos were invited to participate in a camp Word of Life organised in Bristol.  The Lord used this trip to burden their hearts for the spiritual needs of the British young people.  The following year, they relocated to the UK and began the work of Word of Life in Scotland.  Since 1991, David has directed the ministry of WOLUK.

After 19 years in Scotland, David and Cheri relocated to Sunderland, in the Northeast of England in 2007.  When not involved in the various aspects of WOLUK, they assist their church in Gateshead.
