Pastors arrive in Clinton with message

CLINTON — Ashford University Field will host a new type of event today as A Saved Earth Ministries arrives with a message for the people of Clinton.

Appearing with that message are pastors Bob Amos and Hutch Walch as part of their Restoring the River mission, with Clinton as the first stop on that journey.

“One city in particular God asked us to go to was Clinton,” Walch said. “Clinton was the town that we were just supposed to stay away from but eventually this is where God led us to.”

Since arriving in January to their first river city, Walch and Amos have spent collectively more than four months researching the city, visiting with different churches and absorbing all the information they can for today’s event.

According to Amos, they have discovered in that time that Clinton has a high crime-rate and a lot of people that seem to have lost their hope.

“Clinton is a very important city along the river,” Amos said. “He keeps telling us he loves the people of Clinton and I think we all believe He loves to do some pretty incredible work here in Clinton. And that’s why we’re here.”

Today’s event is aimed to “restore” that hope. It will begin at 7 p.m. at Ashford University field and is open to any person, no matter their religious beliefs, for free.

“I think the bottom line is if people have hurt and pains in their life, if they are struggling with addiction to alcohol or drugs, if they’re feeling hopeless or are having difficulty with relationships, even if they’ve been hurt by the church, there will be healing (tonight),” Walch said. “We believe God wants to heal people from the pains they have in their lives and restore them to the way He created them.”

The event will feature recording artist One Accord and former WCW wrestler Doug Fisher, AKA the Wolf Terminator.
