I am writing this from my motel room in Algona, Iowa. The day is Monday, July 19, and the time is 6:00 a.m. This will be just a little update of our activities for the past week.
Wednesday, July 14, we left home in Shelby, North Carolina at about 9:00 a.m. after packing, and drove approximately 500 miles, stopping just south of Indianapolis, Indiana at a motel about 6:00 p.m.
Thursday, July 15, we left our motel room at 7:00 a.m. and drove nearly 700 miles, arriving in Algona, Iowa about 7:00 p.m. After checking into an Algona motel we drove over to see Rhonda’s mother, who lives in Algona. Rhonda’s family was having a family reunion and that is the reason we were in Algona.
Rhonda spent most of Friday with her family. At 5:00 p.m. we were at Trinity Lutheran Church where we had rented their fellowship hall for our Algona Seminar. About the time we had the book table set up people began to arrive.
The room was set up for about 180 and by the time I started the seminar, the room was almost full. But the question asked by so many of those attending was, “What brought you to this little town in Iowa in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by miles and miles of corn and soybean fields?” It was then I shared if it had not been for the Rhonda’s family reunion, we wouldn’t have been there.
When I asked how far people had traveled to attend the seminar, I learned that over half had driven 3 hours or more, some as much as 6 hours, They were there from not only Iowa, but from as far away South Dakota, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. The testimonies of improved health after adopting the Hallelujah Diet at the beginning of the seminar were incredible and those attending were so appreciative we had come.
Saturday and Sunday were the reunion and now it is Monday morning, July 19th as I write this. In Just a few minutes we will pack up the car and begin our 6 hour journey to Independence, Missouri where our next seminar is scheduled for tomorrow evening at the The Gathering Place Conference Center.
Wednesday we will drive about 4 hours to Branson, Missouri where I have on Thursday Morning a 1-hour TV appearance on the Jim Baker show. That evening, I have a seminar in Branson, Missouri.
We have our portable electric refrigerator with us and have been able to make carrot/celery juice in our motel every day on the road thus far. Let me say the new Hurom Juicer is the ideal juicer to take on the road because of its small footprint on the motel bathroom sink.
The first 1,200 miles of our journey has been without incident. Please continue to pray the Lord will give us safe travel over the remaining almost 1,800 miles, and that we will be able to be a help and a blessing to many more as we continue to share “God’s Way to Ultimate Health.”
