The Last Hula Hoop Repairman is the sequel to the treasured story that introduced Uncle Hula Hoop and J.C.
In the original story, J.C. is a nine-year-old boy who takes his broken Hula Hoop to Hubert Horatio Higgins the Third to be repaired.
They develop a close relationship, with J.C. affectionately calling Mr. Higgins Uncle Hula Hoop.
Uncle Hula Hoop has health complications due to exposure to Agent Orange in the Vietnam War. He has COPD and Parkinson’s Disease. He uses a wheelchair to get about. A devout Christian, he witnesses to J.C. about Jesus, with J.C. eventually turning his life over to Jesus at the end of the book.
In The Last Hula Hoop Repairman, J.C. has grown up and is now a Christian writer living in St. Louis. He receives a call that Uncle Hula Hoop has experienced a catastrophic health setback.
J.C. rushes to his old friend’s side, only to be sent on a mission. What has become of Uncle Hula Hoop’s old army buddies, the men known as the Hula Hoop repairmen?
In this powerful tale, J.C. uncovers the miraculous redemptive power of Jesus Christ, and he makes a new connection with Uncle Hula Hoop, one that has been a lifetime in the making.
This story will engage your heart, make you laugh, and bring home the importance of witnessing to the lost.
