WALKING WITH JESUSStart: May 1, 2000. This ongoing living experience started by Chief AJ helping a friend. This is the best way to start a Christian adventure. When Chief AJ started helping a friend to lose weight and get fit He did not know what was in store for Him.
Chief AJ at age 62, 250#, inactive, joint pain in shoulders, knees and hip. Daily active: Watching TV from sitting position and eating potato chips.
The Chief’s waist line had grown to 52". He was out-of-breath most of the time when He was not sitting down.
The friend knew that at one time Chief AJ had been in shape and know how to get fit. So he asked AJ to help him lose 90 pound.
Chief AJ said that He would help this person lose weight and get fit if they would do this together as a ‘WALK WITH JESUS’.
That May Day Chief AJ started to explain to his friend how to draw spiritual and physical strength form faith inJESUS. Like: "I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me"... "They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength"... "By HIS stripes we are healed". This two men did regular Bible study, ate right and got out of the comfort zone.
During the next 3 months of getting close toJESUS, the Chief came down to 200# even and His friend Jay did lose the 90#.
Chief AJ felt so much better at 200# that He joined the local gym. From the very first workout Chief AJ was trustingJESUS to renew His youth. AJ stood on the very basis of the Christian faith: That JESUS is the scape goat and took on HIMSELF all of the sins, grief, illnesses, troubles and diseases of the HIS followers. Each workout became like a worship experience JESUS was helping the Chief .
AJ could feel His youth being renewed. Each trip to the gym gave more strength to his arm, chest and legs. The next 9 months just slipped by Chief AJ make such a transformation that He was able to enter a Physique Contest at Benton, IL.
On stage during a Body Building Show one year form that May Day, 2000. Not only did Chief AJ get active going to the gym but He was shooting His bow and arrows again. He started doing Archery Aerial Shooting exhibitions at State Fairs and Christian Events testifying about how thatJESUS is renewing His youth.
Just to show thatJESUS had done this Chief AJ set a new National Record for Men over 60 "Bench Press Record". It felt so good to be active again Chief AJ just keep on winning Physique and Weight Lifting trophies.
22 months from the start here is Chief AJ with trophies and His Brex 88# Bow.
University Place Christian Church in Champing, IL had Chief AJ start a Christian Fitness' program. The Chief now is doing Health Lectures for Service Clubs, Scouts and Churches.
As of 3/15/2002 not even two years have gone by and Chief AJ is living proof thatJESUS brings deliverance to believers. Chief AJ does not take any drugs, no steroids, no prescription meds but has cast off of His needs on to JESUS.
Chief AJ eats 6 small meals a day. Takes a rest day on Sunday. On that day is Christian Service and then a free day of eating.
