Steele: And where was that?
Steele: Your program was the same for each of the three (recitals). Who is your favorite composer?
Barzee: Johann Sebastian Bach.
Steele: Were you proud of your performance as a musician?
Steele: In addition to the places you have already named, you also went to Florida and California. And you went to Hawaii. How did that come about? You can’t hitchhike to Hawaii.
Barzee: Before we went to Boston, Philadelphia and New York City, that is when your hitchhiking ended and we started taking the train and the bus.
Steele: But how did you get to Hawaii?
Barzee: After the organ recital we were commanded to Fort Myers, Florida, where we spent six weeks for healing and relaxation. From there we got money to take a bus to Los Angeles and California. We stayed in a homeless shelter and our requirement was to go to a social service office. We made it to Hawaii and spent three weeks there.
Steele: What did you do in Hawaii?
Barzee: We camped in a campground. It was within walking distance from Hawaiian temple. There was a missionary there who talked to you.
Steele: How did you get back?
Barzee: By ministering, the money was provided to take the airplane. We were instructed to take $300 and we could only take $100. Brian made a sign that said ‘Please help with our needs.’ That is what we used for a long time. We we got to Palo Alto ... we had to ask for help.
Steele: What does the phrase (inaudble) mean to you?
Barzee: Brian said the humble followers of Christ would open up and give us their sustenance.
Steele: When did you come back from Hawaii? Would it have been the spring or summer of 1997?
Steele: Where did you live when you came back?
Barzee: Brian’s mother provided us a room in her home. We might have stayed with my mother, too, for about three weeks.
