About GraceunlimitedNo other explanation for the continuing life of Alan Lester exists, except the grace of God.
An ordinary sinner saved by extraordinary grace:
This is the name under which he conducts various ministry activities.
Grateful for the privilege of a caring Christian family, into which he was born in 1970, and with whom he lived in the small farming town of Ermelo in South Africa, and then in Kempton Park.
Military service as an operational Medic followed high school, and then a few years as a paramedic in Johannesburg, the busiest ambulance station in the Southern Hemisphere.
After making a profession of faith in Jesus Christ in 1981, Alan experienced a strong work of grace in his heart in 1998, sharply changing the entire direction of his life. Theological studies, focusing specifically on Biblical Counselling occupied the next ten years.
Concurrently he gave seven-and-a-half years to managing a rehabilitation centre for young men, interlaced with street preaching and evangelism. From this experience sprung his first title, Unending Hope for the Exhausted AddictÂ Â
He has, by the kindness of God, served in several churches in different capacities (Kempton Park Assembly of Christian Believers, Benoni Bible Church, Grace Fellowship Pretoria), and now functions as a founding member, elder and pastor with Dr. Joshua Mack at Living Hope Church, Sunnyside Pretoria.
Alan married Charleen in 1993, a 19-year marriage from which he is the father of two deeply loved daughters. His wife Charleen died suddenly in 2012, the subject of his second book, Hurting in HopeÂ
Alan loves to communicate.
