On this week’s Trail To Adventure! Gerry and wife Cyndi are visiting with Arnie and Dee Wolf at their home in Chili, WI. Gerry was invited to meet Mitch Hoyt and his wife Chris, to learn about their story. In this interview Arnie tells that an event done in the area needed a speaker and he’d contacted Mitch Hoyt to share with all who attended. Mitch, who is in a wheel chair because of a deer hunting treestand accident that took place on a September morning in 2006, began to tell how he was disabled. Part of this testimony relates to Mitch’s wife Chris having asked him to please not go on that day. But, the deer hunter chose to focus on his desires instead. Climbing into a friend’s treestand that had been hanging there for several years and before he’d safety harnessed up, he crashed to the ground. Finding himself immobile and with his one elbow wedged in a small tree’s crotch, thinking he would died caused a life’s reflection. God used this time stuck there to speak to Mitch and begin a heart change in him that makes this a “must listen to” interview as the Holy Spirit used it all to change his life, as you’ll see!

About Gerry Caillouet

Gerry Caillouet was born the 21st of April 1955 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The family were members of a church that sadly emphasized good works at the expense of grace. This perpetrated Gerry's youthful rebellion against the things of God - until later in life, when his first son was born.

The two most memorable years of Gerry's childhood were spent living on his grandparents farm in upstate New York. Gerry's father instructed him in firearm safety, archery and fly fishing. Gerry spent summers visiting his older sister in the upper peninsula of Michigan. All this stirred a desire for adventure in the outdoors.

After finishing high school, Gerry joined the Marine Corps for adventure. There his rebellion increased. He occasionally dropped in on church, but had no interest in knowing God.

When his tour of duty over in 1976, Gerry and Cyndi were married. To their joy, they had their first son, Courtney. But the young marriage was in trouble. The couple stayed together for their child's sake.

Finally, a co-worker of Gerry's shared about a father's responsibility to care for his children's spiritual well-being in addition to the physical needs. Gerry, feeling condemned by how he had lived - and not understanding God's unconditional love and grace, was sure he would go to Hell when he died. But Gerry did not want his son to make the same mistakes and then to suffer the same fate. So, Gerry began to seek the truth, and he eventually accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior in 1978! Within two weeks his wife Cyndi received the Lord also! Soon their daughter Katie was born, then two years later their second son, Clinton was born. Praise the Lord for this Christian family!

God turned Gerry's love of the outdoors and of adventure in to a ministry that reaches out to unsaved men, women, and children that share these interests. Gerry hosts and produces this nationally syndicated Christian radio program, and Cyndi is the Director of Operations.
