A Restoration of Old School A.A. in Present-Day A.A. is Now Ready for a Pilot Program to Join the Webinars

In addition to our many other August improvements and changes, we have had one of those additional miracles God keeps heaping up for service. Maui has been slow slow slow to respond to old school recovery facts. But there has been a recovered daily meeting attending Christian leader in the wings. One of my long-term Maui sponsees has joined in with our Maui restoration plan We have long wanted a pilot program. And now our recently successful newcomer is here with apartment,, and eagerness to go. He's detoxed, released from short term treatment, solid in fidelity, determination, helping others, and eager to resume helping with Big Book and Bible as he did on so many of my trips to Pittsburgh, the Wilson House, and other conferences in years gone by. So we are cranking up A.A. meeting attendance; planning regular study groups; resuming Bible and history study, and now able to offer hungry newcmers the real Christian fellowship that was so much a part of old school Akron A.A.'s successes. It takes more than a village. It takes hands-on, motivated, service-oriented helpers to work successfully in the trenches with alcoholics and addicts. So now, amidst many other radio shows, webinars, newsletters, blogs, and solid leaders in Arizona, Ohio, Rhode Island, West Virginia, Missouri, Alaska, and California, the planned outreach will be mirrored right here on Maui. And it began here two days ago!
