Dear Friends at Oasis
I left my stay with you folks almost 5 years ago. You were my seventh treatment center, but the first to suggest I pray. That saved my life & started me on a happy path.
Since then, I've had 8 sponsees & 4 have over a year (+1 more soon). I secretary 2 meetings. I've volunteered in a treatment center as the "AA Volunteer" for 3.5 years. Also, my wife & I have referred three folks to you.
On a separate line, on May 26, my wife & I will celebrate 30 years of marriage. As I've been told by folks in my "Home Group", she's a saint. Further, on June 1, I'll celebrate my first anniversary as a non-smoker--after 38 years of addiction. The nice thing here-- not only can I breathe, the savings is paying for our June trip to England--our first trip overseas.
Am I grateful? I am VERY HAPPY! Thank you for your instruction in prayer. I never had any instruction before, and my background as a Sunday school teacher (9 years), plus a church deacon & elder implied that I must know--but I didn't, and I had no idea that it was so important.
Please keep up the good work. You are valued and greatly appreciated.
