Hello "Neriah",
I can't quite place you. Although your "foolish spirit" comment got me thinking. I was getting ready to wash dishes in LA with a couple of folks and we prayed asking Jesus to help us do a good job, and got to speaking in tounges and whoopin and hollering (as usual).

Was it you that finally yelled "shut up!" ?

The rest of us were thoroughly shocked at such outrageous sacrilige, but it was funnier than hell!(oops!) I regret stiffling the great big belly laugh that your outburst deserved. I still laugh to myself every time I remember the incident.

I was the guy that played the banjo and worked in the photo lab. I was so pale from lack of sun, I was often referred to as "Gabe the Ghost".

I didn't keep up with the folks you mentioned, although there are some articles that cover some of the leaders on this web site. I do remember that Rich-hard was running the colony in Miami when I was there before hopping off to Germany and Switzerland.

Good talking to you,
Greg ("Gabriel Trumpeter")

Hi there. I was with the Jesus People there in Washington Hall. I prepared the car that Linda Meissner rode in down to California to visit the COG colony. When she came back, she brought along a bus load of folks to introduce us to you. That was a strange weekend, one I have had little opportunity to reminisce about. Anyway, the Monday after she came back, there was a big meeting where Linda was holding forth, and finally I began to put two and two together, and asked her directly if she had joined up with the Children of God. She answered affirmatively, marveling that I was so dense. After that, I stopped taking the proceedings seriously, and I was making joking asides to Dale Rowe. Finally, Joshua and David Hoyt concluded that they had had enough of me, and personally hustled me out the door, where a group of Tacoma Jesus People were waiting in a car. I still consider it a great honor to be personally kicked out by by Joshua and David.
Periodically I would visit the group at Washington Hall to see what was up, and one memorable time was when I caused Jeremy Spencer's wife to glare at me with great annoyance because I wouldn't go away or quit talking to Jeremy.
I worked with Danny and Terri McGowan on the last edition of the Truth newspaper that was produced by Linda's Jesus People's Army. Danny had drawn a wonderful cartoon illustrating the story of the steward who was not merciful, which I believe was incorporated in the next issue of the Truth after the Children of God took over. I always wondered what became of them; I believe I got to see their new baby before they were sent off somewhere else.

I was also in Woodland park when the feild was being dug - I got altitude sickness and was sent to the kitchen to work. Each night we would leave the main building after the indoctrination session (albeit it was fun at that time) to sleep in the block (ice) building. I was Judah A2. I remamber one of the elders was so pissed from one of the females flushed their tampax down the tubes while the field was almost complete. The out houses were down the back hill. Someone caught/shot an old raccon that we cooked for the "elders".

Whaddya know... I did some more poking around and discovered Danny and Terri McGowan are the parents of a well-known Hollywood personage. I sort of wondered about that. If either of them reads this page, go ahead and post a note and say hi.

I was in LA and San Diego Cochilla and Woodland Park. I was there in 72 and was the greeter for a while with the dog Tomak at my side. I am trying to contact Blossom who was in the Northwest when the christian group she was in merged with the cog. Her first name was Edith and her Bible name was Blossom. We both had hep at the woodland park colony. If you know Blossom could you ask her to reply to my article Melzar looking for Blossom as I check it every so often.

Wow, a lot of great memories have been stirred up. I was at Woodland Park digging the leach fields and was one of the guys that chased down the raccon. Went to Ellenville after that than to Puerto Rico then Trinidad. I was Abez Rock and left in 73. A lot of videos were taken back then and I'd love to see them if anyone knows where they are. I've been working in Afghanistan the last 4 years as a contractor and one of our first jobs was digging leach fields. Those days were good times for me for the most part and was glad to get out before it got too crazy. The best thing, I learned to talk to God. Thanks to all the good brothers and sisters that helped me along the way. abez52@aol.com

to Gabriel,

It was nice to read your post. The first person that I knew. I really enjoyed my time in the group and didn't believe the bad press until i read an article by Deborah. There was bad press when i was in Cochilla that was laughable. The prophecy teaching I got in the cog has helped me continue studying the subject and i feel really blessed by my experience there. If anybody is interested I'm about 99% sure that the usa = babylon the great (a different conclusion than cog at the time) and that the usa will be "made desolate" by an act of nuclear terrorism. When? Within 3 1/2 years after the signing of the expected 7 year covenant between Israel and her neighbors.

@Anonymous,
Hi - Not sure if this posting is going just to you or if it's going to appear for all. Guess I'll find out when I post it. Reply to me and we'll figure out how to communicate privately about the folks you are looking for in your posting.

@terrileedee,
Hmmm. Let me guess. It's Terri again? This is Larry again. We exchanged a couple emails a while back. I was sad to hear Danny was gone. I missed you guys when we all got separated. That was all too long ago, wasn't it.

To Gabriel Trumpeter,
I was in Germany and Switzerland, sounds like I was there the same time as you, but I don't remember your name. My husband (Zur) and I (Zelzah) ran the colony in Huttwil and then Basil, Switzerland, then we went to Germany and Austria and pretty much visited every colony in our time there. My husband was in the band that operated out of Essen. I was in Switzerland and Germany from 72 to 76.

I was in Essen in '72. I was a scrounger and drove around getting donations of food and other things the colony needed. I was outside everyday, and realized the world wasn't falling apart or that everyone else was going to hell and just walked away.
