Testimony of Johnnie Brown
2001
It was an afternoon in early July during our memorable 2001 bus trip to Mexico.  
I was turning over in my mind the exceptional experiences that had been ours
days before; the powerful testimonies opened to all of us of God’s presence and
protection and intercession on our behalf.

Thoughts, words, then sentences – I thought more and more strongly I needed
to share.  I walked up to the front of the bus and sat down.  Neil was standing on
the step which he often did, Mike was driving, CD was playing and I think Tim
was between the two of them.  Joseph was sitting on the left side about half way
back.

I began to speak and after the first few moments, Mike turned the volume down
on the CD.  Usually when in a spiritual experience, I become emotional with
tears, etc., but in this particular instance, my voice was strong, clear, firm!  A
week after the experience, I could have repeated it, almost word for word.  Sadly,
I did not write it down.  Four years have passed but the heart of the message was
this:

"You have no idea of the significance of your being together at this
time in this place.  This quest will be the means of such a deep
spiritual experience that it will give life to the very core of your
being.  Your mission will be blessed of the Lord.  So may it ever be,
Amen"
