I just pulled into Ringwood yesterday afternoon from my vacation trip to the Midwest and I came across this article about Darryl Strawberry which confirmed first the story I heard while in St. Louis that he was a resident in the area but I knew nothing about his new career as a minister specifically to those hooked on drugs.
Most everyone living in the New York area remembers Strawberry for his time with the Mets and Yankees as a baseball great. Today Darryl wants nothing to do with his past but rather he wants to concentrate on sharing the Word of God with those struggling with addiction. His story, coupled with his wife’s journey, makes for a powerful witness of faith.
May the Lord bless the work of Darryl Strawberry as he reaches out to people in need.
It’s good to be home and in the days ahead I’ll be sharing what all took place on my trip. It was quite an adventure!
