Strands of Destiny

How God Used a Crashed Car to Envision and Build a Ministry


by Peter Horrobin

Strands of Destiny is Peter Horrobin’s personal story of how God prepared him for his life’s calling. Peter shares the moment God envisioned him through the remains of a crashed car, and the journey to finally establishing the work of Ellel Ministries at Ellel Grange in 1986. This extraordinary and miraculous story will build your faith as you journey with Peter through the ups and downs of an amazing spiritual adventure.

There are many strands to the work of Ellel Ministries. In Strands of Destiny Peter illustrates how God wove those many strands into an amazing tapestry. A tapestry which demonstrates to a very hurting world that God loves, God cares and God heals.

Only God could have used the remains of a crashed car to illustrate what He wanted to do in the restoration of crashed and broken lives. God alone could have taken the vision for a healing centre in the North West of England and launched a ministry that would impact the nations through the very lives which He transformed!

Each chapter illustrates how God prepared the way for each step of the journey, often with a chain of supernatural events that only He could have done. Peter shares:

  • About a piece of land in Hungary was set apart by God in the nineteen twenties that would see its destiny fulfilled in the nineteen nineties;
  • How Ellel Scotland was established through a series of amazing God-inspired episodes;
  • The healing of the broken back of a young nurse and launched the work of Ellel Ministries in Australia;
  • And much more.

Every chapter is a testimony of thanksgiving for the amazing love and provision of God.

    Reading Strands of Destiny has been an amazing ‘walk alongside you’ as you share how God has led you from early childhood into the calling on your life. What a walk and what stories!
    Thank you so much Peter, for sharing these precious stories from you heart, giving God all the glory. It is done in such an inspiring and faith building way. It produces awe, strength and endurance as we, too, continue to trust God for “the impossible”, in His service.

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading your latest book – I struggled to put it down and almost stayed up all night to read it in one go! It lifted me in an incredible way and stirred such an excitement in my whole being. It brought me joy and laughter too. Thank you for writing such a wonderful and inspiring book and for sharing your heart in honesty and love.

    When I started reading Strands of Destiny, I could not put it down until 5am the following morning! This is a story about how God works through individuals that have a heart for His Kingdom. It gives everyone hope that God has a plan for each one of us if we are prepared to walk closely with Him – a powerful story.

    This is a most interesting book whether you know Peter or not. He is an amazing man who, under God, has achieved so much. A MUST read! Challenging and faith-building.

    I have just finished STRANDS OF DESTINY …. I could hardly put the book down from start to finish. The humility, honesty and walk of faith is considerable – so many pearls of wisdom, learned the hard way, and forged in the afflictions of the dark nights of the soul. This, I believe, is one of the most honest and important books I have ever read!

    I would recommend this book to everyone. Taste and see that the Lord is good, His glory goes on forever!! As someone who has been healed and delivered by the Lord through Ellel Ministries, reading this book brought me to tears. Peter has given so much of himself, to be used by our Father and the Lord has been faithful and done amazing things through his obedience! This book is a must read for believers, especially if you’re on the fence about healing and deliverance in the world/Church today.

    I thank God for this man’s obedience, which has lead to healing
    , spiritually and physically, in my own life through Ellel Ministries USA. I like Peter’s humbleness and honesty and his willingness to share his journey with others. It has encouraged me. I highly recommend this book for those who know part of the story behind Ellel USA, and also to those who know nothing about this ministry. The rest of the story is yet to come! Praise God for His wonderful mercy in establishing this ministry in the USA!

    I have been so blessed by Strands of Destiny – an amazing story of God’s purposes, leading, faithfulness and humble obedience over so many years.

  10. Angela Davidson (verified owner)

    I couldn’t put it down. I wept, rejoiced, was astonished and astounded and marvelled at the miracles! It could have a subtitle, ‘Miracles Today’. I am doling it out to my friends including my pastor!

  11. Pat Mellon (verified owner)

    Fascinating testimony of God’s guidance and provision! Loved it.

  12. david b brown (verified owner)

    Excellent examples of Gods power and grace at work over many years of service. Hard times when we go our own way. Blessings when we obey God even when times are tough.Great book – read it in a week. Will read it again.

  13. Louie Laing (verified owner)

    Enjoyed this book because it left you wanting to know God the way author did. It also left you wanting to meet and spend time with the author. I didn’t want to put this book down and did not want the book to end. As you read you feel like you are on an amazing journey with God.

  14. Mr. P.H. Dann (verified owner)

    I can say with utter conviction and gratitude that this book is a magnificent antidote to all that is banal and trivial in today’s society so desperate for answers. Read this book with a open heart, be utterly encouraged even in the midst of many difficult times pressures and sad perplexing and often dispiriting news headlines…. or personal struggles. This book rocks! Be refreshed, challenged, stimulated, revived, its beauty for ashes. 100% recommend.

  15. Roy and Edith (verified owner)

    An amazing book! What a wonderful testimony to all that the Lord has accomplished through a life wholly surrendered to Him. A joy to read – It truly is a treasure.

    The world is looking. The world is looking for the reality of God. What I found in “Strands of Destiny” is the real deal. As I reflect on Peter Horrobin’s story, it is on several levels that I highly recommend it. It is a compelling story, an adventure of a life of faith. It is a brutally honest autobiography of a man who has continually reached for a standard higher than himself. Over the course of this man’s lifetime have been a sequence of miracles and the consistent operation of the supernatural, which can only be explained as the result of a very serious and honest-with-himself prayer-life. The story is rich in the substance and practicality which defined the First Century Church, which turned the world upside down, or more correctly expressed, turned it right-side up. “Strands of Destiny” also contains the unfolding of an amazing business model, driving the incredible growth of the practical outworking of his ministry, Ellel Ministries, and his passion to bring healing and help to others. It is a model operated in partnership with and in response to clear and distinct guidance from the Holy Spirit. All this reflects a consistent humility, fear of the Lord and wisdom incorporated in the sequence of steps defining his life and ministry and the ministry associates he has mobilized. Their thrust of bringing healing and restoration to the broken has grown to reflect facilities in 30 nations of the world. “Strands of Destiny” represents a breath of fresh air for the uncompromising rigor and talents of those the author has mobilized and trained to bring the Lord’s healing power to the afflicted and destitute. This remnant of practitioners live lives conforming to this Kingdom standard in making a difference in a world wrought with suffering. Yet, more than any of these other dimensions, this story reflects the Kingdom of God with all its original gifts and power operating in a world challenged by and wrought with corruption and falsehoods. As already noted, it reflects the “real deal” and in my view, the fullness of the way that Jesus intended for the spiritually mature to live and to serve.

    I just could not read one more page without telling you how blessed I am by reading Strands of Destiny. I find myself praising the Lord with each page. Your heart comes through so fresh and so real. I have had tears streaming down my face in thankfulness to our Lord and Saviour – and I am only half way through!!!!!
