We have just held an ordination in which Barbara J Rich of Las Vegas
Nevada and Esther Christiane Trefzer of Switzerland were installed as
ministers of the Church of God Unlimited on campus here in Campo
The two candidates spent a weekend on campus listening to lectures
and interacting with the monks of the Absolute Monastery.
Rev Barbara Rich has traveled worldwide to every possible spiritual
center looking for a philosophy which works every time.
The law of cause and effect has been high on her agenda and has so
proven effective. Her warm heart and open mind made her a receptive monk
in the Absolute Monastery and the Church of God Unlimited.
She operates a school for youngsters who were unable to finish
their work for a high school diploma. School Director Rich has 300
students who are not all that eager to do the work
required, but who are willing to do as their parents have suggested and
finish for their recognition. When they do graduate their gratitude is

works with the youngsters she finds that she is uplifted and illumined

One of the greatest lessons Monk Esther learned at the Monastery is
to be unjudgmental and untouched. These two virtues are ones everyone
coming to the campus grounds studies and applies diligently in their
lives because it is something that they all have ignored most of their
On campus she watched the interplay of the monks as they lived
their daily lives. Constantly she had the privilege of seeing through
the illusions and recognizing the purity of purpose and result. It is
something that many people miss because they think about the illusions
only as "problems" and not as a "solution." With a smile on her face she
rose over all of the hurtles and obstacles which faced her to stand
