Mildred F, Canada
Mildred F. is from Toronto and has been sober 46 years “searching, as I see it now, for the Spirit… really Carl Jung’s observation about all alcoholics.” Her journey includes 15 years in a convent, “drunk but seeking”, after which she “learned about life on the street and skid row.” Marriage to a psychiatrist simply made life worse. In despair, she decided to take her life and had a dramatic spiritual experience. She has spoken at the AA International Convention and is a well sought-after speaker: “The principles of AA – this is my life.”
Bonnie C, Canada
Bonnie C is 21 years sober, and has been in recovery in Canada, Asia and Singapore. She “started recovery with little hope”, but has trudged the road to happy destiny with God and Service, constantly holding service positions throughout her sobriety. She has spoken at conventions in North America and Asia. Sponsored by Mildred F.
Yolanda S, New Zealand (from South Africa)
Yolanda has nine years sobriety. Originally from Cape Town, she emigrated to NZ in 2004, and in September 2010 began her “exciting journey of transformation in AA.” She was a member of the working group that started “The Language of the Heart” – a women’s group in central Auckland. “This is my home-group, my mainstay and it is here that I have learned that the pathway to spiritual growth is paved with solid service.”
Jodi W, New Zealand
Jodi got sober in Ventura, California, in 2001. Originally from Australia, she moved with her family to NZ in her teenage years. On returning to NZ in 2006 she has been an active AA member of the Mt Eden Morning Group. “Working the 12 Steps of AA for 18 years has both changed my life and saved my sanity. I have found my Spiritual home in Alcoholics Anonymous.”
Raj M got sober in 1985 in New Delhi, India. In his 34 years of sobriety he has witnessed AA grow tremendously in his home country. In 1987, he started a Big Book study group in New Delhi “which is still alive and doing well!!” Raj has attended meetings around the world, and his service has included being “involved with conventions and workshops all over this country for the last 30 years.”
Tom, Thailand (from USA)
Tom A is 53 years sober. “I sobered up in Los Angeles. My first meeting was at the Los Feliz Young People's group, one of the first young groups in the world.” He has lived in Mexico, Spain, the United Arab Emirates and Thailand, participating in AA in all of those countries. On his service work he quite simply says, “I have served in nearly every office within AA.”
