Samantha Nelson – Cody, Wyoming … Carin and Ron Lynch from the Lay Institute for Global Health Training (LIGHT) Ministries presented multiple health lectures and plant-based cooking programs throughout Wyoming’s Big Horn Basin at the Powell, Cody, and Worland Seventh-day Adventist Churches in Powell, Cody, and Worland, Wyoming, respectively, April 24-May 7.

Having conducted a Natural Remedies Certification course in Cody last year, one of the unique presentations given this year was on making homemade natural health products, including everything from toothpaste to carpet freshener to hand sanitizer. This class was informative and helpful for participants, and everyone got to take home a sample product along with instructions on how to make their own at home.

In the bread-making class at Powell, attendees got to get their hands on the dough as each one made their own loaf of nutritious and delicious bread—from mixing, kneading, and baking, to enjoying the scrumptious fruit of their labor.

Attendee Bobbi Douglas said this about the cooking programs: “Wonderful and very informative seminars. So excited to be able to share what I have learned.”

The cooking school at Worland left everyone with their mouths watering for more of the delicious food that was made, which included delicious cookies, soups, and spreads.

“We are so grateful Ron and Carin came to show us practical ways to live healthier in a non-judgmental, engaging environment. They came as presenters and left as friends, we are truly blessed!” remarked Kirby Treat, head elder at the Worland Church.
