Post 46e: For the Past Three Weeks I Have Given Each of you Regular Readers of My Blog Along With, Hopefully, a Number of New Readers of my Blog, the Opportunity of Really Knowing What the Gospel of Jesus Christ is All About and How We Can Help Those We Love to Be Blessed and to Experience Feeling the Love of the Lord Jesus Christ Through Living in Accordance With His Gospel by in Our Own Personal Lives. Now I Present a Special Subject For This Coming Week and Possibly for Additional Weeks Depending on the Number of People Who End Up Viewing this New Blog Post I am Just Beginning. I Am Deeply Grateful that as a Young Full-time Employee of LDS Family Services in the San Francisco Bay Area in the Early 1970s I Was Allowed and Actually Encouraged by My Supervisors to Become Involved Simultaneously as a Full-time Graduate School of Social Work Student While Continuing as a Full-Time Employee of LDS Family Services; I Chose to be Assigned by my Graduate School of Social Work Program at San Jose State University Leaders to Work With a Non-LDS Mexican - American Group of Recovering Alcoholics to Learn Personally From those Who had Become Very Dear to Me After Associating Closely with Those Good People for one Year, What the Alcoholics Anonymous Program Was All About. With that Start I Eventually Was Guided by the Lord and with the Approval and Guidance of my Agency Director and Those Leaders above Him, to Begin a Pilot Program Which Eventually Led, With the Personal Involvement of Many Recovering LDS Addicts, the Beginnings of Something Which Eventually Became The "Addiction Recovery Program of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Immediately After Finishing that Graduate School Program and Upon Obtaining my Master of Social Work Degree from San Jose State University in San Jose, California, I was Assigned to be the First Agency Director of the New Kansas City Missouri Agency Located in the Mid Western Portion of the U.S.A. Not Long After Having Moved There I Received a Letter From an LDS Woman Who Had Been Involved in the Beginning Phases of the Church's Now Official Program: The Addiction Recovery Program. I was pleased, Surprised and Humbled by reading in Her Letter Her Expression of Gratitude for What I Had Been Blessed to Do Through My Graduate School Assignment and my Tying that Into What I Was Doing in My Employment With LDS Family Services, Which Along With the Dedicated Involvement of Many Others Became the Very Special LDS Addiction Recovery Program of the Church. With Deep Gratitude to the Lord Jesus Christ I'm Grateful for that Great Experience I Had in Being Personally Involved in the Very Beginnings of that Special Program. I'm deeply grateful that Through that Special Program Hundreds of Thousands of Suffering LDS Individuals are Now Being Assisted in Overcoming Their Previous Addictions of All Kinds! May the Lord Continue Blessing Each of Them and Each of You!; John Neil Birch, Sr.
