This Trail To Adventure! program is a re-airing, in honor of the passing of Ron Lindner into his Heavenly Reward on December 1st, 2020. Gerry is in Pequot Lakes, Minnesota as God’s Great Outdoors wraps up one of their conferences on the “How To” of outdoor outreaches such as Game Dinners. Gerry is joined by Ron Lindner of Lindner Media Studio’s and he shares with Gerry about the history of how he and his Brother Al’s years in the fishing industry, and television production of their outdoor shows. Ron tells of a number of experiences that have happened through the years and how in looking back, the Lindner family can see God’s hand and direction in all of these endeavors. “In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.” Proverbs 16:9 is the theme of this interview and the family’s journey, including an event that occurred with TV that could have affected their business future, but God is faithful.

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.
