Musical couple sing and speak at Norwich dinner

Accomplished musicians and speakers Trevor and Helen Bendrien performed and spoke at the FGB dinner in Norwich on Monday May 20 at the presidential Suite of the Mercure Hotel.

The couple are both experienced business people and entertainers. Helen has run a Christian bookshop in Halifax and Trevor has worked around the world including setting up an engineering factory in China. Despite top level support from the UK, the project collapsed and Trevor lost a fortune but refused to be downcast and continued to share his faith in many nations.
His faith and positive attitude have sustained him to such an extent that he and his team were able to lead a major outreach programme in London during the 2012 Olympics. He is also a regional director of the Full Gospel Business Men.
Trevor, is the son of a Polish-Prussian prisoner-of-war and an English mother, and is known today as a “great survivor” because he has overcome great difficulties in the business world and always bounced back.
FGB Norwich president, Barrie Lawrence, said: “Trevor and Helen Bendrien are professional musicians, but with a wonderful testimony of how Jesus has intervened in their lives. You can expect a great evening of music, praise, and powerful testimony.”
