Just got dropped off here in Helena, Montana. I camped out near the railroad tracks three miles east of Garrison last night; it was cool, but not cold. I camped between the railroad tracks and the river. I hitchhiked from Kooskia, Idaho to Garrison yesterday. This guy picked me up in a Porsche convertible and somehow I lost my other sleeping bag in the process. If I have enough money, I will go to Walmart and look for a cheap sleeping bag later today. Yesterday was a red-letter day in my hitchhiking: I got rides from two consecutive convertibles.
In the past month, I have hitchhiked from Idaho to Washington (visited some friends in Dayton) to California. I did some work for my friends in Cedarville, California and then headed back to Dayton. I hitchhiked back and forth between Dayton and Cedarville a few times. I pruned some trees and cleaned up their repair shop/storage building for my friends in Cedarville; I hauled some boxes of food to town and also pruned some trees for my friends in Dayton. I didn't think I would be coming back to Montana and Wyoming so soon. On one trip from Cedarville to Dayton, I went through Winnemucca, Nevada and Ontario, Oregon. As usual, I met some very interesting people on the way.
Once I got picked up by a guy near Ukiah, Oregon and he took me to a church service in Burns, Oregon. It was the Bible Baptist Church and that preacher was anointed with the Holy Ghost! I have told several people about that church. I rarely go to church, but I highly recommend anyone to go to that church; they have a very good pastor at the Bible Baptist Church who is submitted to Christ.
I stayed overnight with Kim and Pat near Harpster, Idaho last night. Looks like they have some very good fellowship at an Apostolic and a Baptist church in the Kooskia-Kamiah neighborhood. We had a good talk about the things of God and on the power of the Holy Ghost. We watched the film The Hurt Locker that evening. I thought The Hurt Locker was a very good film.
The Presence of God has been very strong since I left Cedarville on the 20th of September. When the Holy Ghost is burning you up, it usually means something: it could be that the Lord is revealing something to me or that a Satanic stronghold is being taken out (intercession; the anointing breaks the yoke of sin; when the Lord glorifies your body, things really happen in the heavenly realm) or maybe something new is going to happen in my life.
After I leave the library here in Helena, I will probably head south to Three Forks and then to Belgrade and then mosey on south to Idaho and then into Wyoming. It is great to be back in the Montana-Idaho-Wyoming neighborhood. It is a beautiful day for hitchhiking, it is a beautiful day for living.
