A DASH TO NEW ORLEANS
DECIDING TO GO
I am scratching my head, wondering what to tell you about our February
(2001) trip to New Orleans, Louisiana. My husband and I had some senior
plane tickets that we had to use up. We had forgotten them--but my
husband got the airlines to extend the tickets for a few months. So,
when Dr. Waite asked "Where should we go?" I said, "Let's go to the
D-Day Museum!" I'd heard about it several months earlier at its
dedication on June 6, 2001 by the World War II historian and museum
founder, Stephen E. Ambrose and others. It was then that I thought to
myself, "If my husband ever asks me where I would like to go, I'd tell
him that I'd like to go there!"
As we sat on the Philadelphia runway, it was hard to believe that we
were actually on the plane heading for New Orleans. When we go on these
trips--whether for pleasure or BFT preaching--we have to just drop
everything and go. We leave the work behind us, the papers, the
writing, the mail, the church, the phone calls, the broadcasts, and
sermonaudio.com and JUST GO! We'll do the same thing, you know, when
God calls us Home. I guess we are "in practice."
I don't think that I've ever been to New Orleans before--or even
passed through. As far as I knew, I didn't know anyone who lived there;
and we purposely didn't look at our Bible For Today mailing list, lest
we would discover someone. (Ha!) My cousin, Jim's wife, said that his
daughter lived there but couldn't get an address in time. (Hope you
understand.) You see, we see people all the time and go places all
the time, and I get weary smiling and being Mrs. Perfect all the time
(Ha!) (Not that I do anything much differently when we are out on our
own.) You try it sometime--to be "perfect," that is. Well, to be
"perfectly" honest, I haven't arrived at "perfection" yet--and those who
just can't stand me or dislike my husband's views will gladly point out
our imperfections. What a relief to have a "perfect" Savior!
A VISIT TO THE D-DAY MUSEUM
It was a beautiful, warm New Orleans day with temperatures in the early
seventies the afternoon my husband and I found the D-Day Museum on 945
Magazine Street (www.ddaymuseum.org). It is
located in the historic
warehouse district near the French quarter of the city. The tour people
make a big thing of the progressive warehouse area where many of the old
buildings are being upgraded for fashionable, functional apartment
buildings and businesses. Personally, it just looked like a warehouse
district to me.
D-Day was June 6, 1944--I was a senior in high school at the time--when
150,000 men sought to land, that first day of the invasions, on the
beaches of France's Normandy. It was a nightmare! Five thousand ships
and four thousand wind-tossed boats plowed into the storm. They tossed
and rolled in the cold and the confusion! Tragically, 9,000 men died
that first day. D-Day was death day for these brave warriors. Why
General Eisenhower, (whom we learned in a film at the museum never had
led troops into battle), thought it wise to hit the beaches in that
wicked weather, I don't know. The others in command did not agree to go that
Montgomery from Britain was in favor of the assault but the General in
charge of the United States Air Wing wanted to wait for the weather to
break. (I personally think that his wisdom should have been heeded.)
Those in favor of proceeding reasoned that there had already been one
day's delay and the "surprise factor" could be lost with more delay.
With the stroke of a pen, Eisenhower said, "yes," and OPERATION OVERLORD
"The BATTLE OF NORMANDY covers an area of over 300 miles wide and 250
miles deep. The landing beaches alone stretch for over 45 miles" (Shilleto & Tolhurst)
Many never heard a shot fired or saw the gun of the enemy. They died
just trying to hit the beaches. It was horrible! It was only the
THE STORM WAS INTENSE
The rain was relentless! The waves were ugly! The sky was thick!
Clear vision was impossible! Paratroopers sprang from planes flying
over the wrong places. Men landed in water and drowned where they
landed. Boats hit the wrong beaches. Men piled out of Higgins boats at
wrong places into knee deep water, blinded by the fog, and crippled by
the crags. There was an air of utter confusion; but they ran on! Many
died-- gasping in the sea, weighed down by their gear and tangled in
their parachutes. Sadly, the "papa" boats could not come as close to
the shore as practiced. Men blindly ran, splashed, and drowned
searching for the elusive unseen beaches. All those mother's sons
sacrificed! Those who found the shore climbed rocks and stumbled onto
the land. German machine guns fired. Bullets zinged. Men fell to the
ground never seeing their opponents. Talk about loneliness! Thousands
were baffled by the landing on unmapped territory. Without a leader to
follow, they blindly wrenched themselves to a tree or a rock, or a
village hiding from cruel enemy fire--or sometimes, friendly fire.
LET ME READ TO YOU THE EYE WITNESS ACCOUNT OF
SIGNALER DAVID "DAI" KING, 53RD AIRLANDING LIGHT REGIMENT,
I found I was oscillating badly when my chute opened, rigging lines
twisted as well. Remembering the drill, I kicked like mad and pulled
down hard on my front life webs. I thought I was reasonably in control,
when splash, I'd landed in water! It was pitch black, I was flat on my
back, being dragged by my canopy in water a foot or so deep. Struggling
to release my parachute harness, and trying to keep my head above water,
I lost my Sten gun. After freeing myself of the parachute, I searched
in vain for my gun. Getting accustomed to the light I waded to dry
land. Lots of trees, so I realized that I was nowhere near the dropping
zone allocated to 3rd Parachute Brigade H. Q. Company. I had no radio,
no gun, no small pack, soaked to the skin, no idea which way I should
go, but I did have eight Sten gun magazines in my pouches! [D-DAY and
the BATTLE FOR NORMANDY by C. Shilleto and M. Tolhurst]
But, the worst thing: were the dead bodies of their comrades, lying
like cord wood, fallen and quiet, beneath their wet feet. The screams!
The blood! The fear! The bewilderment of pressing on! All of these
emotions and more were felt on Normandy's shores that DAY.
ANOTHER EYE WITNESS
MAJOR SIMM, SECOND IN COMMAND, 12TH PB
We were on our feet and continued our advance. . . . on our way we
passed many dead and a stream of our men coming back toward us: bloody
faces, limp arms, staggering and weaving. Some collapsed and remained
still, some crawled on hands and knees.
ALL THAT DEATH--AND THOSE BRAVE MEN DIED FOR ME!
I grieved that afternoon for the boys who stepped onto a treacherous
shore, sacrificing their lives on the altar of expediency for me, for my
country, for England, and for the freedom of the world. Some never
lived long enough to shoot their weapon or to see Hitler's power. I
wondered about the mothers and the wives, the sisters and the children,
the fathers and the brothers with empty arms, hurting hearts, and years
of future loneliness.
ALL THAT SIN-- AND JESUS DIED FOR ME!
Then my thoughts turned to the Holy One who loved me enough to leave
the splendor of Heaven, to take upon Himself the form of a man, to walk
the earth being tempted and tested in all points without sinning so that
He could take my sin and guilt in His own body on the Cross. I thought
of Him who became SIN for me so that I could be righteous in God's
sight. I thought how GOD THE FATHER IN HEAVEN hid his eyes from the
Lord Jesus Christ as JESUS TOOK THE SIN OF THE WORLD--my sin & shame,
YOUR SIN & SHAME--that afternoon when the sky was blackened and the
world reeled as THE FATHER separated Himself from THE SON, my Saviour.
I thought of the physical pain Jesus bare--the anguish, the fever, the
shedding of his blood, the utter end of agony--for me. His suffering
was greater than any man's for He died a death in place of all mankind. HOW CAN WE DESCRIBE OR COMPREHEND WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SON OF GOD THAT
PATTON'S PHANTOM ARMY
We learned that afternoon at the museum about the phantom army led by
General George Patton. He was probably the best general of World War
II. In my opinion, after seeing the film of the invasion that
afternoon, I came away feeling that he should have been the one in
charge of "Operation Overlord," as the Normandy Invasion was code
named. Instead, Patton was humiliated by being ordered to command a
fake army with fake equipment like fake airplanes, fake tanks, fake
jeeps, fake tents, etc. etc. that were gathered somewhere in England (I
forget the place) so Hitler's generals would assume the invasion would
come from that source instead of where it did originate. It was a ruse
of deception--apparently, it worked. According to some historians,
D-Day was a complete surprise to the Germans. The only thing is that
the weather conditions hindered the Allies plans, and hundreds of men
died needlessly as a result--all to save Russia's murderous Joseph
Stalin's Communist armies from total German defeat! `
MORE ON THE HIGGINS BOATS
Before I move on to the city of New Orleans, I want to tell you about
the HIGGINS BOATS or those little "papa" boats that brought men from the
large ships to the shores for battle. You have seen them on the TV news
and in movies, I am sure. I was especially interested in them because
we have pictures taken by my husband when he was a Navy chaplain with
many of those "papa" boats, filled with marines, doing maneuvers when he
served with them.
I learned that there was a ship builder in New Orleans by the name of
Higgins. His pictures were displayed in one of the museum's
galleries. He was in the boat business. I can't remember exactly what
kind of boats he made, but I think they may have been fishing boats.
When he heard of a need to transport groups of men from ship to shore,
he went to his draftsman's table and came up with a boat. Finally he
sold the idea to the United States government and soon those little
"papa" boats became famous. Often they are called "Higgins Boats"
Mr. Higgins. In fact, the entrance to the museum by way of Louisiana
Memorial Pavilion, is on Andrew Higgins Drive.
DON GUARNERE & THE PAPA BOATS
As we looked at an actual "papa"boat, a landing craft vehicle and
personal boat (LCVP), resting there in the huge hanger-like first floor
of the museum, my husband reminded me of our friend from Grayton Road
Baptist Church days. That's the little church where my husband and I
were married fifty-two years ago. It was in Brook Park, Ohio. The
one-room church building--an old school house--was on the edge of, what
is now, Hopkins International Airport, near Cleveland. In fact, that
property is now a part of that airport. Often during a sermon, our
pastor would have to pause as a plane flew low over our roof as it
landed or took off on a Sunday morning or a Wednesday night. Of current
interest to you who watch the news, Brook Park is where that Ford Plant
is located where people have been exposed and have died with
Legionnaire's disease. Of course, when we lived in that area, there was
no Ford plant--just beauty, trees, beautiful homes, and noisy airplanes.
Getting back to our friend, Don Guarnere. He must be in his early
eighties now. He is not well. I hear from his wife at Christmas
(pardon the word! Ha!) He was one of the Navy men who drove the "papa"
boat filled with Marines and US Soldiers to hit one of the beaches on
D-Day. For a brief time during one summer, my husband helped Don build
garages. Don was the builder. My husband was the helper. (My husband
did a lot of things to support his family besides writing books--which,
by the way, doesn't support his family. All the funds go into the
support for the Bible For Today ministry.)
My husband remembered our friend telling him of the danger, the gun
fire, the machine guns, the mines, and the death on that dreadful day.
On second thought, Dr. Waite thinks maybe our friend let down the heavy
plank-like-stern of the boat so the men could jump into the water and
splash for the shore--whatever. As Don Guarnere moved to control the
plank, a shot hit the man who was standing where he had been. It was a
horrid death--hunting, hitting, and harming. Perhaps it was this
experience, as well as others that day, that brought our friend, Don
Guarnere to his knees. Soon he repented of his sins and received Jesus
Christ as his Saviour. After being a civilian for many years, he
attended a Bible school and became a Baptist church planter. Many
received Jesus Christ from Don Guarnere's ministry. He had a powerful
A CITY BUS TOUR
BEAUTIFUL AND VARIED ARCHITECTURE
Even though we rented a car, it was better to let the hotel where we
stayed, outside of the city of New Orleans, take us to the Mississippi
water front to board our tour bus. We chose the "city bus tour" that
day. I forget how much it cost. It seemed to me that we drove swiftly
by places, houses, and streets without really taking it all in. We saw
various kinds of architecture such as "shot gun" houses--nothing to do
with shot guns--which were long, narrow houses, and then the "double
barrel shotgun" houses which were two long narrow houses put together.
I guess the long and narrow plan was a way to get out of paying some
kind of taxes. I remember the guide said that a home owner was taxed on
the number and sizes of the closets in his home; therefore, people had
fewer and smaller closets, if any. They bought armoires for their
clothes instead . We saw antebellum homes which were built before the
Civil War, elevated cottages, lace iron balconies, tall windows, french
doors, louvered shutters and vibrant colors. We bus-raced by beautiful
mansions on a lovely street where wealthy people had servants and many
bedrooms and baths. I remember one that the guide told us that Barbara
Streisand and her husband James Somebody or Other made a bid on. They
did not get the house. The homes did not have basements and often the
first floor was used like we would use a basement. The reason for this
is that New Orleans is below sea level and often they have floods.
NEW ORLEANS BELOW SEA LEVEL
Sometimes as we drove along, we could see where the Mississippi River
was higher than the land. To prevent flooding big dike-like hills were
built. Big water pumping stations were constantly keeping the water
from overtaking the land. I didn't realize this situation before.
Having been to Holland a few years ago, I reviewed in my mind the
seriousness of this predicament. The pumps, by the way, can only pump
one inch of rainfall per hour--I think that is what the guide said--and
when there is a flood of sixteen inches, more or less, the pumps cannot
keep up with the increased water level; therefore there is severe
flooding in the city. I was reminded of this fact the other day when
the TV news showed cars driving on flooded New Orleans Streets during a
recent storm. You probably saw it, too.
THE DEAD BURIED ABOVE GROUND
Because of the low water table, the citizens of New Orleans have
learned that they must bury their dead above ground. In the early
days, graves were dug and water filled the holes before the coffins
could be lowered. Or on other occasions during a rain storm, caskets
would surface and float down the street. It is true--there are a few
cemeteries where caskets can be put under the ground but very few.
Only the wealthy can afford such a plot! I got the impression that
burying loved ones was an extremely expensive deal in New Orleans--more
expensive than I am acquainted with otherwise.
UNUSUAL BURIAL CUSTOMS
There are many cemeteries with row upon row of elaborate tombs.
Evidently this is a fascinating thing for tourists as the only stop that
the tour bus made was a prestigious cemetery. We were encouraged to
walk around and take pictures. Strange! All the other pictures that I
took had to be snapped from the window of the moving bus. So, if any of
you want a picture of some tomb stones, let me know. (Ha!) Because
land is at a premium, it is very, very expensive to bury loved ones.
Sometimes a family cannot afford to build a big family monument. In
that case, one rents a cement, file-type vault which reeks of poverty.
This can be rented for five years. I forget how much. I want to say
$5.00 a year, but I think that is wrong. The dead person (according to
the bus driver) is put in this file cabinet vault loose--just him and
the vault. (Strange to me.) After five years of rental, the bones are
put in a bag and thrown in the back of this long vault with bones of
umpteen other dead people.
DEAD BONES DROP ONTO DEAD BONES
As to the mausoleums or decorative crypts--they were expensive and had
a long roster of names engraved in long columns on the front of them.
Many of these stone edifices could only hold one body at a time; but if
the grieving were wealthy enough, they could have a family burial place
that housed two caskets for two deceased people. There was a certain
period of time that the body lay in this casket on the rack into where
it would be rolled before another dead person could replace it. If too
many people died in a family too close in time, the surplus dead had to
be placed in one of those file cabinet things which could be rented for
five years; but usually in this case it was less, because the deceased
had a family spot. So after awhile, one of the dead people, in the
two-or-one-person mausoleums, would be taken out of the coffin and those
bones would drop to the bottom of the stone memorial to lie with all the
relatives who had gone on before. Then the one in the file cabinet
place, would be brought into the honored place for the dead to be laid
to rest with the rest of his family. In other words, anyone who died in
the family was buried in that vault and when the next member of the
family died, his or her bones were pushed down below to make room for
the most recent deceased. This is considered perfectly normal in New
THE FRENCH QUARTER & VOODOO DOLLS
Saw the French quarter and the mule-driven carriages. Didn't take a
ride--wish we had now. Learned that mules have more endurance than
horses. For sure, they had more endurance than I. Saw Jackson Square
in the heart of the French Quarter but did not walk there. In fact, we
didn't walk much of anyplace except the part of the French quarter near
the water front. It is hard for me to do extensive walking. We went
inside one of the restaurants, but felt very uncomfortable and left.
It was like a dive! Bought some souvenirs. The stores were filled with
dirty-word T shirts and Voodoo paraphernalia. In fact, if we had
wanted to, we could have had a WITCHCRAFT TOUR OF NEW ORLEANS. One of
the many such brochures read:
The ultimate Witchcraft experience. Learn the secrets of
spell-casting. Hear fascinating tales of fact and superstition and gain
possibilities of higher wisdom.
Some of the occult "needs" (????) a person can buy at these shops are
the following: 100 herbs & essential oils, custom spells, charms, &
gris-gris (a voodoo spell), Tarot readings, the largest selection of
occult books under one roof, spiritual consultations, and ritual tools.
These are items that any born-again Christian should stay clear of.
They are tools of the Devil! Talk about Harry Potter in real life! (Get

THAT AFTERNOON WE COULDN'T FIND A PLACE TO PARK THE CAR--so we ate our
dinners atop the Best Western Landmark Hotel in Metairie, Louisiana,
where we stayed, or at nearby restaurants. My husband and I enjoyed
the view but not the price of the soup! Chicken and Andouille Sausage
Gumbo was $3.95 a cup. We couldn't believe it!
A SHIP INSPECTOR AND A SEAMAN
One time we met a Greek ship inspector up there on the seventeenth
floor of the LANDMARK restaurant. He was to inspect river freighters on
the Mississippi the following day. I gave him one of our Bible For
Today Baptist Church calendars. He looked at it, pondering, and said
that in his day the children went to church. He never argued with his
father. He just went. Yet, today with his son, there is always an
argument. The son stays home in bed on Sunday morning. Strange
indeed. The wrong one is in charge of that family! "Parents Obey Your
Children" is the rule in some families. One reason that I was
interested in this Greek inspector was because I sat next to a Filipino
on the plane from Memphis to New Orleans who worked on the ships. He
had left home twenty-four hours previously from the Philippians to begin
work again on a freighter. (I have forgotten the name.) . He wouldn't
see his wife and family for many months. What a life!
To be continued
IT WASN'T SUPPOSED TO HURT
Recently, I'd had a medical test that wasn't supposed to hurt--maybe be
uncomfortable and embarrassing, but not hurt; yet it hurt me so badly
that I wasn't sure I could complete the process. I, who have my teeth
filled without Novocain; I, who have had four of my five children with
little or no pain relief; I,who lived in a hospital as a child, I was
in agony there on that table. It was then that I thought of Jesus and
His pain, His physical pain, on Calvary. What suffering! What
anguish! He didn't have a disease. He hadn't broken a bone. His pain
that day was my pain, my torment, my burning intimidation.
Soon after that medical test, I had to have another test--still
eliminating. You know how doctors are--they have to rule out "this and
that" in order to come up with some diagnosis. So, for a couple of
afternoons, I found myself being shocked by electrodes (for want of a
better word) and stabbed by needles in my arms and legs. I jumped here
and I bounced there with each electrical sting on or under my skin. It
didn't hurt much. It didn't alarm. It wasn't pleasant, but I was
fine. All my reactions were involuntary in spite of myself.
AGAIN I THOUGHT OF JESUS
Again, I thought of the Lord Jesus that day on Calvary's Tree. His
actions were voluntary. He suffered because He loved me. Only when He
bore the sting of death in His sinless body could He take my sin. He
willingly became SIN for me.. He took my sin like I take a pill in the
morning expecting a result. The sin of the world was laid upon Him like
I wrap a coat on my shoulders on a winter's day--only His was more like
a coat of poison nails piercing His Holy inner Self. And with the
reception of my sin and yours, too, He experienced an unexplainable loss
and pain in His perfect body and an unexpected anguish in His Holy Soul
that He'd never experienced before--in fact no one had ever experienced
such emotion. Why? Because He became SIN--my sin and your sin.
REFLECT ON YOUR OWN EVIL HEART
Think about the "sin" you have committed in your life. I don't know
what it is, but you do. Then think of the pure, Holy Lord Jesus
Christ. How He must have convulsed with that deathblow BECAUSE OF YOU!
How He must have revulsed within His Holy Being as all the wickedness of
the world past, present, and future--was dumped into Him! How He must
have recoiled at the Sin; but never turned His back on God's redemptive
WHY DID JESUS DO IT?
He bore in His body our sins that we could be dead to those sins and
live unto righteousness. (I Peter 2:24)
For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was
rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty
might be rich. (2 Corinthians 8:9)
I received Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour when I was nine or ten
years old. I remember it very well--the time I realized that I was
born a sinner because of Adam and Eve's sin in the Garden of Eden, and
that sin was passed upon all so all have sinned. Jesus died that I
wouldn't go to Hell. I wanted that! I've never been sorry.
H AVE YOU EVER RECEIVED JESUS CHRIST
AS YOUR PERSONAL SAVIOUR?
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt
believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou
shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the
mouth confession is made unto salvation.

recent past there was organized a group called 'The Majority Text
