Hallelujah Acres' mission, ever since its inception on February 12, 1992, has been that someday, and in some way, the whole world might know that “You Don’t Have To Be Sick.” This mission began in an 11-foot wide store front on Main Street in Rogersville, Tennessee where Genesis 1:29 food was served and seminars were held. As people in that little town of Rogersville (population less than 5,000) began to embrace God’s Genesis 1:29 diet, folks began telling of their almost miraculous healings from a large variety of physical problems, including cancers. As word spread, the ministry attracted ever more people and growing pains began to manifest. In February 1993, growth necessitated moving from that original 11-foot wide store front to a larger building three doors down the street. By February 1994, the store was closed and Hallelujah Acres took the “You Don’t Have to be Sick” message on the road and across America, holding “You Don’t Have to be Sick” seminars from coast to coast. Although he was attracting sometimes over 1,000 people to attend his seminars, Rev. Malkmus realized that he could only reach so many people as an individual. He felt that by training others to help him spread God’s health message, many more people could be reached. In August 1994, on a mountain top in Eidson, Tennessee, in an unfinished building which housed Hallelujah Acres, 25 individuals from across America gathered for the very first Health Minister Training. In that first training was Olin Idol, now Hallelujah Acres' Vice-President of Health, along with Bev and Chet Cook, currently coordinators for Hallelujah Acres Lifestyle Centers, and Dr. Rowen Pfeifer. This first Health Minister Training was such a success that Hallelujah Acres started holding these trainings anywhere from three to six times a year with the number of students varying from 100 to over 300 each training session. To date we have trained more than 10,000 Health Ministers, with graduates now located in every state in the United States as well as in 48 foreign countries. Except for a few trainings in other locations in the United States and in Canada, anyone desiring training had to come to Hallelujah Acres International Headquarters in Shelby, North Carolina. This worked very well until a few years ago we began to realize that there were many who could not journey to North Carolina for various reasons. For instance, last year there were 35 Nigerians who made application to attend Health Minister Training, but only two were able to obtain visas. Others couldn’t afford to travel from around the world because of work, financial, or time restraints. We have been praying for several years now, how to make it possible for people around the world to be able to take Health Minister Training without journeying to Shelby. Our motivation? We want people from around the world to hear the good news that "You Don’t Have to be Sick"! We want to teach these people that, through simple diet and lifestyle changes, they can be well without resorting to doctors or subjecting their bodies to their drugs. Well, God answered our prayers!
