I enjoyed spending this past week at the Indianapolis Training Center, helping Mr. Gothard and Dr. Paine as they hosted a Total Health Seminar. Even though the dates of the seminar were only finalized a few weeks in advance, a remarkable number of attendees showed up to learn how to identify the root causes of disease as opposed to simply managing symptoms with drugs. At the end of the seminar the participants radiated with gratefulness as they expressed their appreciation for all of the life-changing truths that they had learned throughout the week.
Standing atop a 10-foot ladder, I snapped the group photo to the left with a Nikon D70 on a beautifully sunny afternoon. One gentleman missed the picture so I had to Photoshop him in afterwards. Can you guess which person wasn’t really there? (Hint)
The week was a special one for me because I got to spend it with many good Training Center friends. Clayton Reedstrom, a talented culinary artist, carved a beautiful monkey out of a squash and intricate flowers from radishes in a special fruit dish for Mr. Gothard’s office. Isn’t it amazing?
This week I have been meditating on the command to rejoice, even during trials and testing. One person walked up to me during the week and asked, “How can you be so happy all the time?” It was a great opportunity to share how rejoicing is a choice and the key to joy is finding it “in the Lord” (Philippians 4:4). His goodness is definitely cause for rejoicing!
