Michael is directly related to the first president of Switzerland it was natural that his career has always been related to the service of others before self. Firstly, as a regular soldier in the Royal Artillery. Secondly, having resigned my commission to be ordained to serve both neighbourhood communities and people at work in the UK and the far east. Now living in Woodley since 2011 I have for the past 4 years been privileged to be elected to serve on the town council. This has been a marvellous experience. I am blessed with a Chinese wife and three boys, the eldest at Durham University and the two younger ones at Waingels College.
