Ever since I was able to heal myself of colon cancer 35 years ago through a simple diet and lifestyle change — based on the diet God gave Adam in Genesis 1:29 — I have had a burden to share God’s health message. In 1988, I wrote a book titled “Why Christians Get Sick” in which I expressed in the last chapter:
“My goal is to make Hallelujah Acres into a modern Garden of Eden from which God’s natural ways of healing and health will flow to Christians around the world.”In 1992, Rhonda and I opened a little health food store and vegetarian restaurant in Rogersville, Tennessee. My vision and burden continued to expand with the vision that “Someday, in some way, the whole world might know that they need not be sick”. Of course, it was still a dream at that time but that was soon to change. In that little restaurant in Rogersville, in addition to providing health foods in our restaurant and store, I began to conduct a seminar each Saturday morning titled “How to Eliminate Sickness.” As people began applying what I was teaching, testimonies of healing began coming in with increasing numbers. By 1994, a few of those who had made the diet change and improved their health began to ask if I would teach them how to teach others how to eliminate sickness because they had a burden for family, friends, and fellow believers who were sick and looking for an alternative to the modalities of the medical system. Our first Health Minister Training was held in August 1994. Twenty-five adults went through that first training; today, fewer than 20 years later, over 10,000 have gone through Hallelujah Acres Health Minister Training and are ministering in every state in the United States and in almost 50 other countries. Just in the past two months, over 500 Nigerian Christians have gone through our Health Minister Training and other parts of the world are on the agenda for 2013! To date, I have received tens of thousands of testimonies from people who have applied The Hallelujah Diet and reported recovering from over 170 different physical problems — and they don’t get sick anymore!
