BOB WICKHAM has always been excited and enthusiastic about encouraging young people. This is why he started Kiwi Can in Primary Schools. The program went from Kaitaia to the Bluff. Basically the program encouraged children through praise. As the children’s confidence grew they were challenged and then they excelled. The excelling was so excelling the program was very accepted and is still going to day. What was exciting the young people growing in confidence became great achievers and warm giving people. Bob was a farmer, loved nature and created a garden of 80 hectares as a sideline. The garden was very colourful and was basically all flowering trees. There was white gardens which was made up of 80 Mt Everest rhododendrons, it covered a hillside. A blue garden was 4 levels of blue flowers topped by flowering Paulonias. Bobs faith has led to creating youth churches, and he believes that divine healing is God’s command to spread the word and wonderful divine power of Jesus. He traveled to Nepal with John Ferguson on a healing mission with 15 other enthusiasts and believers during November 2017.
