Hitchhiking South of Grangeville, Idaho


Dreams from the LORD 2003-2006
5 November 2004

A few days ago, I was hitchhiking south of Grangeville, Idaho and this guy named Charlie picked me up.  He was a Christian and he was going all the way to Arizona.

We were somewhere south a number of miles when he said, “We’ve been here before.”

I said, “Oh, déjà vu?”

“No,” he said.  “I had a dream a while back.  In the dream I picked you up and gave you a ride.  It was as if the Lord was telling me that it would be a good trip.”

“Wow.  Really?” I said.  “That’s pretty incredible.”  I was flabbergasted.

Charlie bought me something to eat in New Meadows.  He took me all the way to Fruitland, Idaho where we had a powerful prayer meeting.  I told him that the Lord was bringing him to a new place so that he could start over again—a new beginning.  I knew he would have a very blessed trip.

  1. Do you plan on coming to Arizona?

  2. No, I am not going to Arizona anytime soon. The above post happened in 2004.

  3. Tim. This is a tremendous testimony as well as a great inspiration for me. Tomorrow I will get the blog going again. I will update you. God bless

  4. Randy: I am glad to hear that you are continuing your blog. I am looking forward to reading your posts. A lot of good spiritual food that will strengthen the saints.

    Last night I camped out near Winchester, Idaho on U.S. 95. A lady named Shannon gave me a ride from just outside of Orofino on U.S. 12 and dropped me off near Winchester. We had excellent fellowship and we had a good prayer meeting in this parking lot.

    After the prayer meeting, I walked over to this fence and jumped over it and walked into this wooded area. I set up my tent and made a fire. It started to get cold. It may have gotten down to 24 degrees F last night. I believe it was the coldest night so far this year.

    Today I hitchhiked out of Winchester and got three rides to Grangeville. I was walking down this street when this lady smiled at me and said something like, “It is pretty cold to be backpacking around the country.”

    We talked for a little while and she said that her name was Beth. I said goodbye and headed for downtown Grangeville.

    A few blocks later, this white car pulled up beside me and it was Beth. She said that she would buy me some lunch if I would speak to her teenage students at her learning center.

    I spoke to Beth and a handful of students for an hour or so. I told them about my hitchhiking and my Christian faith and the providential things that have happened to me on the road. I really enjoyed talking with them.
