Today, I am using my mobile rig set up and discuss my thoughts on the Fellowship.  I had the oportunty to visit a Detox Center and received the gift of speaking with clients that were just hours sober.  I was fiulled with Hope for them.

I then received news about a good friends child who is one of us.  My friend's child has experienced horrific tauma over the past few months and strted using again which had led to hospitalizations.  There are small children involved.  Yet I am filled with hope for her because of the fellowship.
