Returning home this evening from having dinner with my family, my mother had told me to drive down Lake Road towards veterans park and to bring along my camera. I had driven home a different route from her so I had absolutely no idea why I was instructed to go there. Upon her findings, I had come across a gigantic bus that was just simply parked in the Veterans Park parking lot. My mother had told me not to go near the bus because she didn't know what it was. Ya know, the basic "don't talk to strangers'' rule. However, this was no ordinary bus. I had parked across the street, and attempted to take photos of this masterpiece from the corner of the street. I, however, was not satisfied. I was too far away and I wasn't getting the shots I desired.
Luckily, for me, it had begun to rain. So, I packed my camera into the car and took this completely irrelevant opportunity to drive across the street to the same parking lot as this big mysteriously religious bus. When approaching the bus, I thought it might have been some sort of travelling news stand or some type of booth - kind of like how the Blood Drive is set up. In my case, this was 'The Jesus Loves You Bus'. I had gotten my camera all prepared for shooting when I noticed a face in front window of the bus. I walked closer to the bus as the doors opened up, they opened like the doors of a school bus. There was a man and his dog, casually sitting in this bus. I greeted the man and he had asked me if I had Jesus in my heart. After a few moments of chattering, I had asked him what this all was. To be completely honest, I had no idea what it was. It appeared to be a bus, but it was humongous in size, resembling that of a house. This man went by the name of Casimir Sowinski. He was a minister - of course.
Minister Casimir Sowinski had purchased a bus on his son's recommendations. Although, Minister Sowinski had hoped to own more of a mobile home, the bus became his own sanctuary. Originating in California, Sowinski has traveled 35 states in this big beautiful bus. Across the entire bus, displays the message "Jesus Loves You". You might be thinking "How did he make it across the United States in a huge bus?" Well, the bus is fueled by love. Picture it sort of like Santa's sleigh - for the sleigh to fly, it needs people to believe in the spirit of Christmas. You see? - The bus needs people to give love to the spirit of God in order to run. Minister Sowinski is available for events such as; weddings, public speaking events, retreats, etc.
Throughout traveling the world, he has started selling t-shirts in order to help spread the word of God. T-shirts can be purchased from his online site www.jesuslovesyouteeshirts.com or www.thejesuslovesyoubus.com.
