I was the first member of what was then Embassy Christian Center Oceanside (1995), former SLBC graduate, same as Barry. Helped Barry on Camp Pendleton get started, ex-marine. ADVICE: STOP FOLLOWING AND START LEADING YOURSELF! YOU HAVE BRAINS, DON'T LET PEOPLE WITH STRONG PERSONALITIES FEED YOU RUBBISH. Been through so many stories like this since even when I went into the mission field after I left Barry, been here ever since 1999 and married and happy in South Africa. I found myself and found so much more grace, less arrogance. Be happy people! Learn from this and stop getting caught up in crazy ideas. Eventually you will learn, just don't lose all your money in the process! Hell go have a Beer and smell the roses, your direct family is most important! Be happy!
