In every outreach of these joined hands, the vision is to see hope, health, and purpose restored in the life of every person and family that they are privileged to serve.
The Personal Story: Dr. Ray and Michelle married in 1994 and blended a family of five children (now grown to eight and three grandchildren), began to work together to serve the needs of the patient's in the healthcare clinic to serve in the local church body. Little did they know at that time what would sprout from those seeds! In 1998, on a short retreat to Tulsa, the Lord moved on their hearts to leave what they knew and follow Him – first to Bible School and then to the foreign mission field as missionaries. Their daughter, Dr. Rebecca Pearson, took over the clinic for them and they (and the family) began a journey the likes of which they had never known!
While on the field in Mexico, Dr. Ray and Michelle began to feel the deepening passion in their hearts for the restoration of complete health to lives of every nation and for those lives to be radically improved, transformed by practical application of simple truths.
This set in motion a series of events, including their return to the clinic in the states. Dr. Ray and Michelle began to apply these truths first to themselves, progressively regaining their own health (tortillas, cokes, and re-fried beans made with lard are not the healthiest of choices!). That transformation then began to spread to their patients regarding their overall health. As they began to receive extraordinary revelation as to the design of the body and its function, the Pearson's and their patients began to see pronounced improvement in the most difficult of cases.
As they continued to increase their studies and their pursuit of excellent resources, the clinical application of the precepts governing the design and function of the body brought continued and magnificent results. Nearly twelve years ago, Dr. Ray and Michelle were asked by members of the community to start teaching wellness classes so they could broaden the reach. As a result of that request from a then group of local school teachers, literally thousands of people have attended these life-changing classes in Arkansas and Missouri, as well as many others nationwide through DVD and CD series.
The Picture of Health has been birthed from this passion to reach and serve others with scientific, medically proven, practically applicable, life-saving, life-transforming truth. Now, the doors have opened to teach and train all around the globe. Our various types of outreaches are all purposed to offer encouragement, correction, reflection, and revelation across the globe to "whosoever will" hear and apply healing truths and sound health principles in their own lives.
Through God's grace, the Pearson's challenge and equip others to live in complete health… Spirit, Soul, and Body. It is through the power of the Holy Spirit, extraordinary knowledge, and exceptional natural tools that all of us will fulfill our purpose, in the full measure of divine health.
We are delighted you have visited the site and hope you will be inspired and challenged as you learn more about the design of your fearfully and wonderfully made body and the purpose for which you were created!
See you on the mountain tops! (Or, see you from the top if you snooze!)
