Transportation for Rural Suffering Alcoholics Need Help
Organized by: Paul Dickerson
This fundraiser is directed toward the purchase of a van to go around the county picking up people that what to get sober and taking them to a 12 step meeting to recover from drug use and alcoholism . My personal struggle with 15 years of alcoholism came to an end with being around others with the same problem and sharing my experience strength and hope for a better life. They taught me how to depend on a God of my understanding rather than the bottle. They showed me how to talk about my inner feelings of hurt and pain by sharing theirs and how to pray and forgive. This has lead me to grow spiritually and live the miracle of a sober life. The van will be a tool to have group conversations about staying sober while traveling to meetings and talk about the meetings on the way back. This is planting the seed of recovery in a person then they must learn how to make it grow with the help of God. The Bible say that He went not to the high priest and scholars but to the down trodden and drunkards. Looking at Moses, Paul just to name a few they were some serious sinners before they found The Almighty and look at what they did. I pray that you find it in your heart to help us with this project and give according to your heart .
