My son Ken & I just received a wonderful surprise. Steve, a thoroughly-trained, physically fit, eager Christian sailor, let us know the other day he was vacationing here in Maui with his wife prior to a deployment. Several years ago, we met him at a Bible study class for Christians in recovery held by the dynamic Rock Church in San Diego. Having seen his willingness to act, we invited him to Maui to be part of our Christian work with suffering alcoholics and drug addicts. But we learned he was headed out for military service. He later got married. Yesterday he called us to say he & his wife were on Maui. We were struck with his fitness, motivation, discipline, and devotion to God. We hope he'll share today his: (1) discipline; (2) patent intelligence; (3) commendable four years of sobriety; (4) teaming up with a Christian Navy man; (5) work with addicted newcomers; (6) Bible study classes; (7) demanding service training over the past two years; and (8) fidelity to sobriety in A.A. His determination was similar to Dr. Bob's in that he attained some remarkable education while doing "graduate work" in alcoholism and addiction. Thus, despite progressing drinking and drugging, he graduated from college & received his degree in a demanding field. Recently, he received a master's degree in a technical field that will serve him well during & after his military service. He & his wife of two years are happily married. And he has a serviceman's patriotic fervor for serving and defending his country. He, also appears to have placed his life under the care and direction of our Creator and His Son Jesus Christ, and respects the Bible's major role in that endeavor. He's an inspiration. Here's his story.
