In the long of long ago, back in the days when we were young, Jerry received a vision in the night...or was it a dream? In the quiet of the night, and from out of a deep sleep, a feeling alerted my senses and I said to Jerry, “What is it”?
Jerry told me about the vision and that he would be able to find the place on a map. He said it had many lakes in the area and that there were two cities and a voice spoke and said: Go there!
I immediately got up and located a map. I brought the map to him where we were sitting on the bed. He spread out the map on the bed and within a very short while found what he was looking for. He pointed to the twin cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota, and showed me the lakes situated around it. As I began researching this area, I was astonished to learn that Minnesota is called “The Land of Ten Thousand Lakes”.
We immediately began considering going to this place. Jerry had a full time job at Breuners, a prestige furniture chain of stores that also sold pianos and organs in Stockton, California. We had also been pastoring a church, called: “Mosswood Assembly of God Church of All Nations”. We were filling in for the pastor, Rev. Freddy Rogers, while he took a much needed rest.
