I was someone who never fit in and was lonely, regardless of whom I hung out with. I associated myself with different people groups throughout my school years and noticed that I had a better relationship most times with those who weren't in my people group. I was also exposed to the Gospel through Release Time Evangelism from grades 4 - 6. Fast-forward through junior and senior high, I joined the Air Force in the late summer of 1977. After basic training and tech school, I was stationed at Travis AFB in early January 1978.
