The hope chapel. Hermosa beach deceived by mail newsletter. From this this church and different people than the ones we had Active and they said basically. Don't come here in basically set it clearly that. We don't need your kind of christians in hawaii and so so then we get the airport and the kind of nicely happen but was kind of weird. We're we're all on. The airplane have overbooked and members standing around and inside can had long kind of bit. So i don't see.

There's eight of us the us off the plane for twenty four hours. We all got a free round trip ticket back to the mainland. Which was really good kind of scared going. And it's like a nice thing to have in your back pocket. Then we land the next day and there's a hurricane watch and i just can't go worse and and we have no place to meet and and so that was kind of my memories of getting air. We we'd been on the radio for a while. Just we thought we'd in the radio wants removed. They're just kind. you know.

You can do whatever you want. But if you cross any lines and i'm outta here you know like if you go off into left feel i'm gonna. I'm going to leave. Now there'd be times he you'd be right on the edge in some even put his foot on the other side of it and then because at this point we're a part of denomination that has sort of strict rules.
