2. Ministry update from Mary Louise..Town Jaqua, Hallelujah Acres Health Minister  
It's finally summer. Somehow we skipped spring, but I'm not going to complain. At least temperatures are warmer, thought we're still waiting for splendid summer days to arrive. Despite the lingering cool and wet weather, our garden is nearly all planted, and we're well on our way to enjoying another backyard organic extravaganza. Gardening has become another art form for expression that is a veritable living, breathing painting. My only regret is that I don't have time to capture our garden on canvas as I'd like. Perhaps we'll consider having garden tours!  Who knows? In the meantime, here are some healthy updates for you:   HANDS-ON HEALTH Our monthly support meeting will take place Tuesday, June 12 , 6-8PM at the Winslow Public Library. We hope you come. This is your opportunity to help others by sharing your testimony. Let people know what live food has done for you. Share your success story  whether it be big or small. Your experience can encourage others to make important, life-saving lifestyle changes. PLUS see an inspiring video presentation from Hallelujah Acres: HALLELUYAH TESTIMONIES. Hear over a dozen people testify to the remarkable health improvements they experienced by adopting the Hallelujah Diet. Listen as they describe how their cancers, heart disease, fibromyalgia, allergies, migraine headaches, etc. disappeared when they began eating live, raw food. This video is well worth seeing. Bring your friends and family to hear the wonderful news: 'You don't have to be sick!'   LIVE FOOD PICNIC Plan to attend our Second Annual LIVE FOOD PICNIC! The eats are spectacular and second only to the lively fellowship shared by health-minded people! Mark your calendar and start thinking of what to bring to this smorgasbord feast of living food. Details will be posted soon on our website. Admission is free of charge, but those attending must bring a live food dish to share. Don't miss out on this annual opportunity of delicious food and healthy fun!   LIVING WAY RADIO We are now in our third year of broadcasting. It hardly seems possible! Sharing vital information that is life-changing is important to us. We are presently lining up guest speakers for the summer season: Dr. John MacDougall MD, Dr. Rebecca Carley, MD (vaccination information), LL Fowlker  (sprouting), raw chefs. Keep in touch for details. Pass our radio announcements around for everyone's good! For more information visit or tune in our live webcast at   LIVING WAY TV Our monthly health meeting, HANDS-ON HEALTH, continues to be filmed for later broadcast on Channel 7, Public Access TV. Many people in our area are surprised to see us on TV. Their positive feedback is encouraging. If you've never been part of a TV audience, come and participate!   In July we are expecting to do a LIVE FOOD DEMONSTRATION with Margaret LeBlanc on her program that airs on Channel 7 TV. We are looking forward to this opportunity, Our kitchen setting for this event will be Uncle Dean's Good Groceries.  Stay tuned for details.   WEBSITE UPDATES: I continue to update our website on an on-going basis with new recipes and articles, since there is much happening that directly affects personal health. Of special import are issues of HEALTH FREEDOM and FOOD SAFETY. Take time to investigate these issues that are an increasingly vital part of life.   In closing, we missed seeing some of you at our last health meeting. Hopefully we'll see you this month! Please remember that THE LIVING WAY is only one facet of Gertrude Ministries. As ministers of the word, we are happy to share the glad tidings of the kingdom with you which includes the health message. Yahshua came to give us life and life abundantly. It is our privilege to help you realize life to the fullest both naturally and spiritually. Feel free to ask for prayer or counsel concerning your needs no matter what they may be.   __________________________________________  
3. NEWS STORY OF THE DAY: HEALTH FREEDOM PROTECTION ACT, H.R. 2117 In the course of our ministry, we have addressed the growing concern of personal health freedom in our country. In light of corporate agendas within organized government institutions and/or business, there exists a real and present threat to one's right to be healthy. Whether you realize it or not, your personal health freedom is now being decided by politicians, CEOs, and UN agencies. In May, health freedom was struck a severe blow in the Senate with the defeat of Senate Bill S. 1082, the outcome of which remain purposely obscure. Health Freedom now has a chance to be "rescued", thanks to the efforts of Rep. Ron Paul (R- TX). The HEALTH FREEDOM PROTECTION ACT, H. R. 2117, could be the provision that affords us a measure of health freedom over and above corporate control. If you don't want politicians to take over your health, if not your life, take time to investigate the health freedom issue. The life you save may be your own. Read about the HEALTH FREEDOM PROTECTION ACT on our website: Support health freedom now!  
4. Buying tips and healthy helps  
CO-OP option Finding safe, nutritious food can be challenging. We encourage you to shop the sales of organic foods at local food stores as well as to consider a membership in THE SUPERNATURAL CO-OP. Information about the Co-Op is posted on our website. Case lots of produce can be purchased and split, if there are enough people willing to work together. Until local gardens are producing, a membership in the co-op may be a good investment for you,  

If you are looking for a good value on TP and would like your purchase to go to a worthy cause, call Ken Stevens (692-2128) at Set Free in Maine Ministries, 18 Lithgow St., Winslow: Tell him we sent you.
