Part 2 – Thomaston, Georgia – Be In Health Ministries
March 31, 201,2 Day 17 We left the resort in Weston, FL on the morning of the 30th. It was around 0930 and traffic was light. The sun was up, warm and heading to a high of around 90 degrees. We drove using our little lady GPS successfully navigating the turns in Weston to find the turnpike. At the end of the turnpike, we had spent about $25. LOL A lot but it sure was nice driving and avoided all the congestion. We ended up on I75 and it was heavy traffic both ways. We never could figure out what was attracting people unless it was one group of spring break and snow birds going one north and new spring break folks heading south.
We stopped occasionally but mostly just drove! At about 1600 we gave up. We stopped at the first motel that looked ok and hoped for good pricing. It was not bad but high. $71 with a 25% senior discount!! But, it was clean, had a pool and I could walk a little. The pool was way too cold use and nothing like our resort. Funny thing is, William chose to swim in THIS pool and did not swim in our wonderful pool at the Weston Vacation Village. Go figure!! I walked down the block and bought us some fair dinner. William liked his, a sub with everything on it including hot yellow, jalapeno peppers, etc. I ate the Cajun chicken salad which was barely ok to finish. It was very hot due to the same peppers but the flavor was not there. Oh, well, it was not too heavy and we were nearly ready for bed.
The next day we were somehow shocked as to how far we still had to drive to get to the airport. But….. we made an important decision. We stopped at a McDonald’s and booked a Marriott hotel at the airport that had shuttle service for William to get to his flight. It was a wonderful hotel but they wanted 129 plus tax for the AAA, senior, etc. rates. We used points. I still had points left over from my Amdahl days and it was awesome. Such a beautiful hotel, so comfortable, friendly, etc. But…. We spent $11.00 to park the RV, $40 on dinner!! We did not have a fancy dinner, it was in the large lounge portion of the hotel that had 6 TVs and 170 soccer players coming in at 1730. We ate at 1600 and truly enjoyed the dinner. William had chicken strips that were hand cut and battered white meat, about 1.5 full breasts. I had shrimp. They were not the normal little flat things these were scampi, huge and battered by hand. They were so good. I could go there again just for the shrimp. WE had so much food left over that I took it in the RV and had it for lunch the next day.
Speaking of the next day: April 1, 2012, Day 18 We departed. We had such a fun trip but it was time to go our separate ways and head to VA and GA. William got me on my way and I used the GPS to get me out of the airport area and onto the road to Thomaston. She is so great. I was on 4 freeways and 3 surface roads. Then on hwy 19 which runs right into Thomaston. She even took me the back, shorter way to the church. I arrived at 1000. Just the time church starts!! We did not plan it that way but there I was and I was so excited. I did not shop but, oh well!!
Church service was awesome. It was short but very sweet. One person expressed his confession to Father God and repented and several others gave testimonies. Two people gave a prophecy and they were both so together. Both stressed not losing hope. Keeping hope as Father God is working with us and will never forsake us. Praise God!
April 2, 2012, Monday Day 1 of Internship at Be In Health
This is an introduction day and focuses on understanding where the evil comes from, the beginning all the way to current. And the power we have been given in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth by Father God through the power of Holy Spirit to overcome, to discern and to deal with effectively and permanently. They were taught the evil will come back and if we have an open door they will again have a right. They learned about our memories’ and programming that can keep us in bondage.
April 3, 2012, Tuesday Day 2 of Internship at Be In Health
The attendees are beginning to ‘get it’. They are discovering that all their years of teaching in Sunday school, Bible studies, sermons, etc. were not explaining or exploring the whole truth. That the things that come out of us that are evil are not us but the evil living within us. They are becoming free in the truth of exactly all that Jesus did on the cross that provided them with forgiveness of sins and equally importantly the means to overcome evil in their lives. AND that evil does not come from without but from within us. Satan has a right to enter with his evil principalities’ and team when we have an open door. Each person is learning about potential open doors, door points, and unresolved sin in their lives and deliverance is happening.
Today the teachers dealt specifically with door points, accusations and bitterness. These teachings include all the underlings as well. Then a time of group ministry. The participants had done their homework and studied the lists of characteristics, diseases, etc. that are related to the work of the principalities’. The ministry was life changing for everyone and only 2 had any physical reaction that required dealing with. Praise God!
April 4, 2012, Wednesday Day 3 of Internship at Be In Health Today started with the Occult which is a very enlightening teaching is followed with ministry. The students have, in every case, for each evil spirit completed homework where they have asked father Gd to show them where on a list of things they have participated with evil in their lives. Particularity if it is habitual. In some cases, Father God shows them other areas in the same vain, but usually, the list if fairly complete. The same format was followed for the remainder of the day to included spirits of
April 5, 2012, Thursday Day 4 of Internship at Be In Health This was a glorious day. The students studied the Unloving spirit and spirit of fear which includes anti-Christ and self-pity. Then Pastor Henry taught via DVD on How we are to go out and minister and what real evangelism looks like. Awesome day. Then….. we had baptism service for those that wanted to participate. Last night Jim Faulkner of Be in Health taught on true water baptism.
We had a class of 33 and 18 of them were baptized tonight! 9 of them rededicated their lives to Christ. All had received Christ as Savior years before but had walked in sin, had diseases and issues such as depression, fear, unloving, etc. When they came to realize it was not their fault, that it was the evil living within them and that they had power over the evil in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth through the Power of Holy Spirit, they were free to serve Father God and a new and exciting way.
Three couples were baptized as couples and each gave their testimony. One had been a Christian for many many years but developed ms and other issues out of cohabitating with evil. Of course, the evil was unknown to her during these years as she had never been taught truth, discernment and deliverance. This is not shadow boxing, this is true freedom! It is not always instant and in fact usually requires walk out. But, walkout is such a glorious part as well. Drawing closer to Father God and learning to trust totally and not be moved by what others want, say or do. Renouncing fear of man, fear of thousands of other things of which many affect us subtly. Thank You father God for loving us, sending Your Son for us and leaving us Holy Spirit to help us. Thank you for the Bible, a complete guide for living.
April 6, 2012, Friday Day 5 of Internship at Be In Health Just prior to healing profiles ministry we listened to and sang For Every Mountain by Kurt Carr
“For Every Mountain you’ve brought me over, all I can say is Halleluiah, For this I Praise You.” American Idol is great but… This was worship!
The students learned they are to come with hope to the Father. Have a desire for God to meet you and to heal your hurt. It was a time to release all hurts, desires, etc. and not try to figure it out. Be in relationship with Father God, the Word, and Holy Spirit. In His perfect timing, the healing and deliverance will come. There may be more layers that have to go before a full victory. So be patient and walking as Father God is with us as we walk through the process. Holy Spirit is the member of the Godhead that is on earth here with us. This is walk-out with all the support we could ask for. It is not like cramming for a test and then after acing it forgetting all about the material. We are to be patient and let Father God Teach us. (Psalm 103:3). As we get rid of inherited thoughts and genetic code. Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
2200 on Friday night. Just back to my room at the Crestview Inn after a celebration church service at Pleasant valley Church in Thomaston, GA. We worshiped with A Mighty Fortress is our God (http://library.timelesstruths.org/music/A_Mighty_Fortress_Is_Our_God/), A great song about freedom and heard and shared the joy of God’s work from many persons who just finished For My Life and For Their Life. One woman from Canada said “I did not know I could be free. I have attended many churches and while they read scripture it is like a surface reading. I do not mean to be critical but coming here I really heard, learned and am free as you all taught fully from scripture and with understanding and full implementation as Father God intended. Thank you! I am tempted to renounce my Canadian citizenship and move to Thomaston just so I can fellowship with this body. I now know I will discern “yucky pucky’s” and get rid of them in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth by the Power of Holy Spirit.”
We danced to the Lord, we joined the choir at the front of the church and sang and did the motions for “Shake Yourself Loose” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLx8zqz1eqU), and sang and celebrated with numerous people running and shouting for the Lord. One couple running around the sanctuary is a miracle. She has MS, was in strong bitterness, had renounced her faith and she and her husband were not happy together even though the marriage was a long one. She testified during baptism as they were baptized together on Thursday night and tonight she was running. She could hardly walk all week. PRAISE GOD!!
I am NOT tired and it is nearly midnight!! I am FREE!!
April 7, 2012, Saturday
Today I explored rural middle Georgia. I planned to go to Calloway Gardens in Pine Mountain, GA. http://www.callawaygardens.com I decided to stop in Warm Springs, GA as it is known as FDR’s ‘other’ white house. It was formally named Bullockville but was changed due to the belief that the continually flowing warm waters would heal things like polio. FDR renamed the town. But…. I did not have a specific place to go in Warm Springs and do not like to use the feature on the GPS that send you to the center of town, so……. I looked for points of interest. Well, I found The Old South Farm Museums and chose that. Turns out it is NOT in Warm Springs but in Woodland, Georgia on Pleasant Valley Road! http://www.oldsouthfarm.com How funny is that! I was so shocked I stopped at a local restaurant on the corner of Pleasant Valley Road. I met Daisy! She and her husband Charlie own the restaurant and do all the cooking. They serve a variety of meats, vegetables, and desserts. One item on the menu each day collard greens. The other is corn bread. I assured them I was not hungry but would be back on Wednesday as they serve pinto beans on that day. She said I would like her collard greens and I said no thank you. Her husband said, “I will give you just a little taste and we will see”. I assured him I was not hungry but did not want to be rude so I said, “ok, One bite”! He brought a small plate of collard greens! Daisy said, ‘bring her a piece of cornbread too to go with the greens.” I cautiously took a fork full of greens. I was wondering how I was going to tell them how awful they were and not be rude. They were wonderful. They are not bitter at all and Daisy explained to me how to clean them and strip out the veins. They cook for about 45 minutes but not too long. She cooks them with fatback and adds a little sugar at the end. The cornbread was absolutely awesome too. I ate all they gave me and was not even hungry. LOL
So… while I right there I went to the museum. The owner, developer, manager Paul Bulloch gave me a personal tour. He knew every area of the museum and had purchased or received each item personally. He has each area of the museum dedicated to specialties of the area such as hog killing, making sausage, food processing (canning), sugar cane processing making syrup, trackers and implements, etc. It was overwhelming. He has the largest collection of barb wire in the world! I did not even know all barb wire was not the same. Let alone that there are over 300 varieties. The most impressive attribute is his commitment to teach children. He used to have all the schools in the area come for an outing but the cutbacks cut field trips. He offers hog killing in the winter and a camp in the spring. During this year’s camp scheduled for April 18 – 20 they will milk cows, visit a unique chicken farm and numerous other activities. He has cabins for them to stay and a large classroom for projects and instruction. He recently finished a book titled “Peaches of Georgia”. I purchased a copy for interest, sharing and to donate to the work to provide a place to learn of times past in a special way.
Armed with registrations from the farm and a menu from Daisy tucked safely away to give to the parents at church, I headed out to find Warm Springs. Charlie had given me careful directions and there are signs along the way. Arriving in Warm Springs I stopped rather early in my journey. There were many people milling around the buildings and on the sidewalks. I asked what was going on and they assured me it was the southern fried chicken available at the Bulloch house restaurant. Most had already eaten and were ‘walking it off’. I asked about the frequent turning down an alley of Harleys. They said there was a Harley store there. So I walked down. While it is not a Harley Davidson store, it is a leather store that has beautiful leather and other paraphernalia at reasonable pricing. The other attraction in the area was motorcycle museum. But, the owner was like a carnival ‘hawker’ so I declined. Smile. In the parking lot there were at least 50 bikes of which most were Harley. I did see a CanAm trike. Then, as I walked around the rest of the alley which turned and joined the main street of town around the corner I was passed by numerous bikes. The most memorable was two ladies each riding a non-Harley smaller bike without skill. And, to top it off there was a car going out the alley the opposite way they were going and he had moved way to the left to not crowd me. It totally confused the ladies, so I stopped, stepped way out of the way and they came around on the wrong side of the road very cautiously and NOT smiling. It was an opportunity to pray for them!
Once on the main stree,t I saw a vegetable/fruit street vendor so I ventured that way. I took pictures of a very old house with the southern style porch and rocking chairs. The young man overseeing the cart was about 22 years old and very knowledgeable of where his items came from. I bought local onions and the rest was from Florida. He as so delightful to offer to keep my items until I drove back that way on the road to Pine Mountain to finally locate Calloway Gardens. He ran them across the street for me and placed each bag (4) carefully in the RV. I thanked him and noticed the cross he was wearing. We spoke for a moment about the Christian Motorcycle club that was visiting in town and then back to work for him.
I finally arrive in Pine Mountain though for a while I thought the GPS system was hopelessly lost. smile. The address I had took me to a home without any Calloway Gardens in sight. I stopped at a grocery store and while buying Georgia raw peanuts, I spoke with a young many working in the produce section. He laughed and said, “ya, that is likely one of the grandkids homes.” He then directed me the remaining 2 miles and the garden property is huge! I first came to a part that sits on the lake, then a golf course, cabins, tennis courts, a lodge, and miles of bike trails. By this time it was after 1500 and I decided it was too late to ride. I headed home and stopped at the good size Ingles market in Woodbury, which is just 7 miles or so from my Inn. It would have been about 7 miles anyway if I had gone to the Inn and then went downtown to Ingles, WalMart or Piggly Wiggly. And this store was really nice with a lot of variety.
This was truly a great day just being in God’s creation. Thank you Father.
April 8, 2012, Sunday Good service today: mostly scripture, testimonies and two prophecies. One of the ladies, Marsha, that has been here for 20 years gave a part of her testimony that highlighted the fact that she was 50 years old living in the occult with severe allergies to the point of chemical sensitivity. She gave her heart to the Lord via phone ministry with Pleasant Valley Church staff and came to GA and lived, was delivered and grew in the Lord. She stayed and is one of the minsters on staff currently.
We shared a meal after and I made the pea salad I learned about at the McDill AFB RV Park in Lakeland, Florida. It was a huge hit. Many people came to me to tell me how good it was once the word got around that I made it. Plus, I made a huge salad and it was completely gone with the exception of one small bowl. I had two helpings!! There was so much food you cannot even imagine. Turkey, ham, casseroles, pizza, etc. etc. etc. Typical southern way, mine was the ONLY salad.
April 9, 2012, Day 1 of Advanced Insights Class at Be in Health. The class has an excellent format. We watch a 50-minute video of Pastor Henry Wright teaching, answer 10 questions, discuss questions and answers with an instructor. We have 6 instructors all of whom are senior in their understanding of being doers of the Word. Today we studied the invisible part of creation, angels in scripture, the history of man, understanding our enemy, what is to come, angels at work, the chronology of man, prophetic timeline, the three heavens and the genius behind man. During the course of the lesson we learned what Doctors are sharing and science is proving:
- Jesus is the uncreated Word. The Holy Spirit impregnated Mary.
- The male blood carries the sin component. It is in the blood at conception. So, Jesus had no sin in Him. Incorruptible seed.
- Our genetics are deteriorating due to the sin being propagated and increased in our populations.
- Righteousness exalts a Nation. Our Nation is hanging on because of a few righteous persons remaining here. At tribulation, the righteous have been removed and disaster strikes.
- God does not allow evil to happen, things happen because the curse is a vilification of the Blessing. Haiti was warned of the impending disaster if they did not repent. We are not doers of the Word and the curse impedes our Blessings.
- We have free will. Our hearts are being tried; we are on probation. Any created being can rebel against God.
- The new Heaven and new Earth (New Jerusalem) where Father God joins the LORD and the saints is located on Earth 1,500 miles North to South; 1,500 miles East to West and 1,500 miles straight up in the air.
- The word Gentile means persons who do not know God. They are separated from God.
- Today we live in the Dispensation of Grace and Mercy.
- There are no female angels in the Bible, angels do not have wings. The ONLY mention of winged females in the Bible are lying spirits of divination.

Trip to Calloway Gardens with Charlotte Beadles:
Saturday, April 28, 2012, Charlotte and I hopped in her turquoise Miata convertible and visited Calloway Gardens in Pine Mountain, GA. The trip was glorious in traveling sites, company and the gardens and its inhabitants. We first went into the huge butterfly house which features all varieties of butterflies freely flying and perching at will. They have orange slices hanging here and there to attract and feed them. The colors, sizes, shapes, geometrical designs and stillness of they animals is amazing. We stayed a long time but became very warm. It is humid in the house as well as over 90 degrees outside.
From there we drove the curvy roads around the azaleas, pines, beaches, ducks, Canadian geese, etc. It was amazing. After a few hours we were hot and hungry so began checking on restaurants on the grounds. All were open beginning at 1530! It was 1430. After a delicious pulled port sandwich at the discovery center in air conditioning, we walked to the birds of prey demonstration area for a 1530 show. We were able to find seats down front in the shade!! Praise God. It was very HOT!!! The start time came and went. One of the trainers explained that the birds are free during the show, there is no way to control them. They fly freely. So, during the 1230 showing, the peregrine falcon had refused to go back into its mew – house. The coaxed and pleaded but he refused. They explained the show could not go on as the birds were not only hunters mice etc. but of each other in some cases. The hawk would attack the falcon and with its 300 pounds of pressure in its giant claws it would do it damage. So we waited. The crowd was large and several children ranging rom about 2 to 16. All were polite and some very good questions were answered during the wait. Finally, the trainer said, “we may have to cancel this show’. The crowd did not complain, or move. She said, ‘well shall we give them another 5 minutes’. The agreement was made and during that last minute, the falcon went into its house. The issue as she explained it was that they fly for us not to entertain us, but because they get fed. Well, the falcon was full and wanted to play.
The show itself was the best I have ever seen. Usually, the birds are damaged and cannot fly. All of these flew, squawked, etc. They flew deliberately just above the audiences head. One actually skimmed my hair as it went by. I was not afraid at all; but one man behind me was terrified. He kept dropping to the ground. Now, these birds flew back and forth many times during their feeding activities. So it was beautiful, we gained knowledge and this poor man was hilarious. The trainer entertained us with details about each species while truly introducing us to them as well. For example, the bald head black vulture is his favorite. It is clumsy and not graceful at all, but….. it does not need to be as it is never after anything that can run away. It was a gross yet elegant description of this bird created by Father God, The Word and Holy Spirit.
After the show, we walked back at a much slower speed, it was over 90 still. We were blessed to be mostly under tree cover and we took the shorter route back to the discovery center. There we just sat in rockers looking out at the majestic creation of our Lord. We saw turtles, small if compared to the sea turtles off Jekyll Island, but fun to see. Children everywhere were playing, laughing, running, etc. The parents were relaxing but with an eye on each one. Great family area and fun to just sit and watch.
After we were cooled we decided to skip the horticultural center, though it would have been fun, as we were both tired. And…. Charlotte still had a drive to get us back home. She decided to go the back much longer way so we could go past the little family owned restaurant I found the first Saturday in Thomaston. I was looking for the Old South Farm Museum and while I did find it and enjoyed it, I also fond Charlies’s Country Restaurant. Daisy, Charlie’s wife does most of the cooking. I just immediately connected with her and could see her pain. I have only prayed for her and not tried to minister at all. She knows I love here and was so excited to see me again. I gave menus to Pleasant Valley Church and I think Peggy and a friend went to lunch. I have not heard how that was but did speak with a couple who went through the program the week before and they said it was very good. It is truly country. The menu includes turkey necks, chit lings, pigs ears, ox tails, etc. along with pinto beans, collards, turnip greens, port chops and catfish to name a few items. Lunch is an amazing $4.99 for one meat, 2 vegetables, and cornbread!
Upon arrival home, we both went into our air-conditioned rooms and rested. LOL
