Gary & his wife at the 2012 Spring Banquet

Gary recently wrote in a Christmas letter,

“My drinking had become worse and worse. My wife left me, I lost my job and home, and the doctor told me to change since my diabetes and blood pressure were out of control. It was not until I saw an old school friend of mine dying from cirrhosis of the liver, that I realized it was like looking into a mirror–this was me in a matter of time.

I entered Teen Challenge over nine months ago. I have allowed God to work in my life. He has taught me that I have a purpose in life, not focusing on myself, but for serving and sharing God’s love with others around me.

My wife and I have been working on reconciling and I believe our marriage and friendship is becoming stronger than it ever has been. I will graduate in March and will be going home to my beautiful wife.”
