While in Orange County, we will be in touch with many potential Christian leaders in the Orange County Area who can help us formulate and locate benefactors to support our "Impaired No More" Program. This will reach out to impaired communities, starting with lawyers, and offer programs to help insure their return, with God's help, to a new life--whether it be restoration to their field or a new life of service and success.
We will be meeting with Marriage Counselor Bob Noonan in Orange. He will help us plan a large Conference in Orange County in May where Christian recovery leaders who have contributed mightily will have an opportunity to speak for an hour and meet in workshops with others on how they are leading the new Christian Recovery Movement and expand participation in International Christian Recovery Coalition.
Arranging visits with Ken and myself to the end of furthering these efforts will be a top priority. We will be in the Torrance Area from January 4th to 6th. We will be at the Marriott in Costa Mesa from January 6th to 9th, We will be at the Wyndham in Costa Mesa through the 13th. And for a day in the Marriott again until our return to Maui of January 14th.
Chuck: We have valued your support a great deal and are constantly at work researching and expanding on the vitally important origins, history, founding, original Christian Fellowship program of A.A. in Akron, and its successes. Also on the "broad highway" compromise on the issue of "God" which took place in A.A. just before its Big Book went to press in 1939. And also on how Christians and those who want God's help can recover in whatever A.A., N.A., and 12 Step Fellowship, or treatment or counseling program, or sober living situation they seek if they build on the Christian origins of the recovery movement and stand on their own Christian beliefs and practices utilizing and serving the other 12 Step activities.
