November 24, 2014
Being involved in a godless past to include running with members of the Hell's Angels, Sons of Satan, and Pagans motorcycle bike groups, is just part of the testimony of this week's guest Ken Gingrich. Ken is joined by his wife Judy and the two talk about this time in their lives and how God wound up getting a hold of the two of them when an evangelist showed up at their door. Ken put this story into a tract titled The Ultimate Choice and eventually wound up writing an expanded story of this entire experience in Ken's life in a book with the same name, The Ultimate Choice.

Gerry travels to the northeast corner of Ohio to take part in a ministry of the likes he had never seen before. The event was a multi-species fishing tournament where a small fish like a blue gill that was caught at the event could actually be the winner over a larger species fish, such as a muskie. It all worked on percentages, and the technique in judging is explained by this week's guest Roy Hendrickson. The lake the church was using was public access and was actually in both Ohio and Pennsylvania, but you will discover that this ministry outreach is designed also to share Christ and can even be done on a small farm pond that has several species of fish.
