I saw jets of light shining from cities and villages, and from the high places and the low places of the earth. God's word was obeyed, and as a result there were memorials for Him in every city and village. His truth was proclaimed throughout the world. --Testimonies, vol. 9, pp. 28, 29. {ChS 112.2}

Vegan Cooking School #3

We just completed our third Vegan Cooking School over the past year..... another one is coming up again in the Fall.

The cooking schools focus on introducing people to healthful vegan alternatives to traditional recipes and lifestyle choices. Wyona, the leader, has put on about eight or nine similar seminars in the past. She has a varied background as a baker, teacher, business partner, and in retail health/natural foods. The 'assistants' do a variety of things to help with the Cooking school. Bernie is our "Science Guy" and at this last Cooking School he provided information about heavy metals and other environmental toxins that we want to avoid and get out of our lives (example, mercury amalgams). Kim, a local physiotherapist, provided information about using simple 'hydrotherapy' techniques instead of pain-killing meds. I spent a few minutes talking about how pure essential oils are a healthy alternative to pharmaceuticals or surgery. Gary, a local chef, came in to show us how a stirfry is really done (and to show off some of his knife-cutting skills). Ruth, Pauline, Lydia, Gerhard, Gordon and Cheryl also put their backs and hands into making the school the success it was, and contributed to the fun that is part of a well-organized health ministry.

Here are some pictures taken over the course of the course, so to speak...heheh.This is Bernie, our very competent "Science Guy"
