Brother and Sister Cox.

Meet Brother Ken and Sister Jan Cox. We have become good friends. They are the directors of the churches ARP or Addiction Recovery 12 Step Program here on Kauai. The program is very successful on other islands but is just getting started here. The Cox's have been here a year and are going to stay on at least another year to see that the program gets a good hold on Kauai. They teach 6 lessons a week, some of them in the prison and at outreach programs. Brother Cox met us one day at the Lihue chapel and said he had had a revelation that we should teach the program in Kekaha. We thought about it, then said we would. Sister Cox has been an addict most of her adult life but has been clean for about 7 years now. She is amazing. She is kind, loving and lots of fun. She has such a testimony of the program and is really a great facilitator. Because of their work at the prison we will be recommended by parole officers and will be able to sign off attendees paper work. The focus of the program is forgiveness through the atonement of Jesus Christ and we are able to teach and share the gospel if people ask us to. We had a gentleman from Star Valley, Wyoming attend last week because he was here on vacation and went to Sacrament Meeting and saw a posting for our meeting and he came on Thursday night. We hope we will be able to make a difference for people clear down here on the west end.
