Country Complete

It is mission accomplished – Hello everyone! As mentioned in a previous blog post I was going to report on two things. The first is a summary of my most recent trip I took through the Southeastern portion of the United States. The second report is a summary of the last 33 months traveling to every state in the Union, with the exception of Hawaii. (I did go to Alaska but on personal business) As you may be aware, I left in February 2015 in a van donated by a dear brother in Alameda. I returned back here to the Bay Area in the first week of November 2017. During the last 33 months although covering the whole country I was not in a perpetual state of travel. (Like Larry Stevens) I often tethered back here to Northern California to attend my home church, visit family, and to take care of domestic issues like going to the doctor.

I do not want to take it lightly concerning all the churches and individual people who have supported the furtherance of the Gospel through my lips during the last many years. I very much appreciate all of the monies and prayers that enabled me to carry out the will of God for my life in this itinerant street preaching ministry. I will continue to evangelize and serve the Lord.If I died today I would feel I have finished the race; I’ve completed what He wanted me to do. It did not come easy as it was through much discipline from God and miracle after miracle getting me to fulfill His will. All praise be to our great God and Savior Jesus Christ the Lord! I marvel at His work in me. It is truly a resurrection of a dead wasted life.

Henrietta, the Van

I wanted to mention a few things about the van. My van, a 2001 Ford E150 Club Wagon, went the distance with no breakdowns or issues, not even a dead battery or flat tire. I have both AAA and car insurance and praise the Lord I never had to use either. I never had any theft or vandalism even when traveling through some rough cities like St Louis and Detroit. I did have two close calls avoiding an accident. This last year the AC worked intermittently and finally gave out although this is a mild American hardship. Henrietta is the name the van had when I was given the keys. John & Janelle Pillitiere donated the van to me in January 2015. From that time she has been mine. Many times Henrietta thought she was a long-haul semi truck and I had to veer her back from the weigh station entrance. Another time when visiting a farm in Kentucky she wanted to be a chestnut mare.

Salt Lake City Police Talk to Man Across the Street

“You don’t have to leave we took care of him, besides I like the preaching”, the young man with tattoos responded. He looked just like any other guy you would see on the streets. I have seen a lot of undercover police officers in my day, but with this guy I would have never guessed he was working undercover. Here’s what happened: When preaching on Thursday in Salt Lake City I had encountered a very difficult person. He was somewhat crazy or perhaps demon possessed as he approached me and crying out at the top of his lungs, yelling blasphemies against God. As he left my presence and crossed the street a hurried young man came and stood in front of me and asked, “ what is with him?” I said, “I think he is demon possessed.” He responded by saying, “we will take care of it”. I just thought he was a passerby. He was texting and within about two minutes, another older man, showed up who was obviously a police detective. Continue reading
