The Bluest Skies…

The bluest skies you’ve ever seen are in Seattle; a song by Perry Como. Growing up here in Seattle I always thought he obviously was not here most of the year. However in the summertime it is hard to be a nice day here in the Pacific Northwest. It has been absolutely beautiful, in the mid seventies and sunny everyday for the last couple of weeks. This makes the street preaching very easy not having to contend with the weather and the people are outside. I just spent a couple weeks here in the Seattle area. Some of my time was visiting friends and relatives, and in particular one friend of mine who has cancer. I was able to get out and preach several times in Seattle and in the city of Bellevue.

It has been a smooth path and I have been blessed in so many ways while here.

This was the second time we came out to San Diego State University and I was not too impressed. You could cut the pride with a  knife. However a younger woman who didn’t seem to be a student broke away from a crowd of people to come in front of me while I was preaching. She gazed down at the Bibles and other materials we had. She then approached Jerry and talked with him quite awhile as I continued to preach. Later Jerry told me she asked him what religion we were and revealed that she was Mormon.
