Operation Integrity Summer Update 2012

Operation Integrity Update - Summer 2012                        

Greetings! And thanks for your ongoing support of Operation Integrity. Here is what is happening both in our local Southern California efforts, and our national outreach efforts.

· Our Southern California recovery and support fellowships continue being effective, to date helping over 1000 men and their families, including numerous Pastors and Clergy, lay church leaders, local political leaders, and every day people find the help they need to recover from their addictions.

· We are currently working with three pastors in southern California, three more across the US and Canada, one in Europe and one in Australia, all via telephone and/or Skype.

· Our educational and family support network is helping heal marriages and families by bringing insight, understanding and empathy where there had previously been confusion, anger and resentment.

· We are providing affordable recovery programs through our 45 Day Intensive & 90 Day Transformation programs, and providing scholarships for those who cannot afford the cost of their recovery programs and counseling.

· We are working with local firefighters who struggle with porn addiction, helping them to reach out to other firefighters who have the same struggles.

· We are partnering with local counselors, therapists, counseling centers and churches, bringing them the special capabilities that Operation Integrity offers.

· Travel plans are in place for our Director, David Zailer, to travel this fall to San Antonio, Colorado Springs, Oklahoma City, Fort Worth. Each of these trips is to assist local OI fellowships and/or to provide support to other Christ centered addiction recovery programs and sexual addiction recovery programs.

Our National Efforts Include

 · We had a wonderful event in Charleston West Virginia, where our Executive Director David Zailer offered education on the reality of addiction, and how Christ centered spirituality is an essential platform for healing. It was also a great time for a number of OI participants from the eastern US to meet and fellowship together.

· Operation Integrity was highlighted in Leadership Magazine and Envision Magazine for our work helping pastors, as we as in a nationwide documentary on sex addiction on Canada’s Vision TV, numerous in print interviews and podcasts with Covenant Eyes and Healing for the Soul.

· We are currently mentoring and coaching recovery and support groups in 7 cities in the US.

· We are helping Pastors and Clergy in Ohio, West Virginia, North Carolina, Oklahoma, California, Michigan, Texas and Canada and we are enlarging the reach and success of our Recovery Program for Pastors.

· Operation Integrity Daily is delivering inspirational devotionals to more than 3500 people.

· Our book, Our Journey Home is speaking hope into many lives, and we have released a new edition of When Lost Men Come Home, which helps many men and women escape the darkness of sexual addiction.

· We have donated 1100 copies of Our Journey Home and 660 copies of When Lost Men Come Home to Christian recovery programs and ministries in the US, Canada, Australia, the UK, Brazil and Mexico. We will donate more literature as funding becomes available.

God is leading an ambitious expansion of the Operation Integrity ministry.
