Mary and I were commissioned as Church Army (CA) Captains in 2006 while serving in disaster recovery on the Mississippi Gulf Coast following Hurricane Katrina. We also served as mission coordinators for The Society of Anglican Missionaries and Senders to the Gulf Coast as part of our ministry there. Mississippi opened us up to working with addictions and in 2008 we began working with a Church Army officer (Mark) and recovered addict who had established a satellite addiction recovery program outside St. Louis, MO. Mark had found God and recovery through the Church Army program established in Branson, MO. During our service under Mark, Mary and I did counseling, Bible study and office administration, among other things.
