  1. Hi!
    My name is Kathy Frees and my mom is Nancy Turner who attends the Linden Methodist Church. I have a woman I know (retired Lutheran Pastor) who does a lot of hiking. This spring she is hiking across Iowa. Sunday the 19th she will be in Linden staying with us at my moms. The next day we will hike from Linden to two miles north of Yale and I will bring her back to mom’s to stay Monday night. She usually tents along the way. The route she takes for the American Discovery Trail will be taking her North of Yale to Herndon and then on up to E63 to take into Coon Rapids. She was told this area is pretty open, will not go through any towns, and not sure who might live along E63. I was looking to see if their might be anyone that you might know that would like to help her out by offering to pick her up from the trail to camp in their yard, or something. My phone number is 319-936-9333. I will be meeting her for the first time when she stays at my mom’s, and she is a delightful lady. Thanks much for your time. I have left my email for my phone if someone wants to contact me. Thank you again, Sincerely Kathy Frees

  2. Dear friends and colleagues:

    We would like to offer you a free book for your daily study and meditation about the future prophesies of the world, economy crisis, the planet ecological disaster, how and why the increasing of earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis and typhoons around the world and the end of humanity.

    Hercolubus or Red Planet written by V. M. Rabolu is a book which speaks about the most imminent events to come. In this small book, the author tackles serious topics of actuality that are happening nowadays like the atomic tests in the ocean and the fatal consequences causing the unbalance changes of the climate around the world. He describes the controversial question of the existence of conscientious beings in other planets of the universe. Likewise, he confirms the existence of an enormous planet, six times bigger than Jupiter, which is approaching our planet in an alarming way. He describes the consequences for us.

    In his book, V. M. Rabolu teaches the system to eliminate the psychological defects and the techniques of the astral unfolding to be the only existing key to escape from the coming cataclysm.

    V.M. Rabolu (1926-2000) was born in Tolima (Colombia). In 1952, he found the true knowledge by means of many years of practicing what he teaches in this book. He managed to develop his extraordinary capacities that transformed him into a spiritual guide of international renown.

    In 1998, he wrote “Hercolubus or Red Planet” based in his direct and conscientious experience. V.M. Rabolu describes the terrible events that will happen in a short term. He teaches the way to obtain a deep transformation of the human being. Nowadays, the statements in his book have been recognized by a large number of readers around the world who are getting many benefits from his teachings.

    V.M. Rabolu is one of those few souls with awakened Conscience, and his teachings have become indispensable in these times when materialism and the lack of moral values have transformed our society into a madness and chaos full of wars, alcohol, drugs, sexual abuse, misery, painting a very dark future for new generations.

    Hercolubus or the Red Planet is written above all with a great dose of sensibility and love for humanity. The assertions contained in the book will draw the attention of society as the events unfold in the near future.

    From the table of contents:

    Hercolubus or Red Planet

    Nuclear Tests in the ocean and the ecological disasters

    Elimination of the Psychological Defects or Egos

    Astral Unfolding and its techniques

    The mystery of life in other planets

    The Book synthesizes our work with three factors: The elimination of the psychological defects, with which every person can achieve scientific chastity and the love for humanity and our planet.

    V.M. Rabolu’s message is clear and conclusive: “Human beings must increase their level of conscience to overcome the forthcoming worldwide calamities.”
