    Well,right from wrong I'm from; SHERIAN WYOMING but I've been chasing the oil path around this country for many years, and lived pretty hard . my hope is to get people better aware of whats going on in this county. Real people and real peoples cnildren are in real trouble in this country .please open your heart mind soul and EYES to what i'm saying. get on your knees and pray, ask Christ what you can do to help the hurting.

    To, G.Preacher
    yes,I'm sorry yo say I know first hand all 2 well ,but today Ithank God that I'm forgiven.My days now are spent serving God and being the best wittness that Ican be for Gods glory.

    I am not sure about meth necessarily, but drugs have impacted many communities. We are trying to reach addicts in our community through a variety of outreaches.

    I heard that the meth problem is worse in the midwest because of the fact that there are alot of labs in the rural areas. I too, sorry to say, had a meth problem before I came to Christ. It is very, very, very addictive. Not to mention the type of people you have to associate with in order to get it. It will add 30 years to your life in a matter of months.

    Hey SAMPLEWOW I totally agree it's a big problem and the ones really getting hurt are the children.

    I live in California and I know its a big problem here and all over. What can we do pray tell that would help besides prayer ?

    We've thought of doing foster care eventual in order to adopt. I'm not sure what else can be done, not sure how to go about witnessing to them, walk up and say " hey you got a problem with meth ?"

    What do you all think ?

    Talk, Imean talk a lot,make people aware. Letyour school board know its a problem. Stand up in your morning service and tell the folks with their ears covered yell it to the top of your lungs .read about it . teach about it,if we don't this METH problem will teach. It's already spreading through our schools teaching at least 3% of our grade school children. Yell IT ,TEACH IT ,PREACH IT.1% OF METH ADDICTS RECOVER FOR MORE THAN A YEAR "AFTER" TREATMENT. Let every man, women,and child know about the destruction that comes from this evil drug
    thanks for asking.

    I think what I meant was... you said that you have been a man for 44 years. I was questioning how old you were, meaning, if you were 64, then maybe you were a woman 45 years ago?

    And, of course, I was saying it in jest.

    Well, as for you Thankful,
    I've been forced to learn how to type better. @%$# haha! WellIhope your right about OK but I doubt very much if you really got to looking into the problem that you'd believe anyone has a handle on the meth problem.

    If we can teach our children to put God first, they won't start using drugs.

    As to fighting meth. You can't buy cold medicine in our area without signing for it at the pharmacy, and you can't buy more than a normal cold would need.

    Well Texassky
    Oh, how I wish Icould type.I would fill you folks in on so much about this drug . The restrictions that law puts on you does nothing to stop anyone from making meth these people are theives and liers , they are not bound by the same things as you are.These people are robbing stores at gun point, they are killing for this drug. Now its being shipped over seas. As for teaching our chidren yes it WILL help . let us not down play the problem like so many times happens in our churches today.Please don't sweep this problem under the rug . Talk to your freinds ,your family the law enfocement,and your schools .
