Carrying the Message – Urgent Appeal! Immediate Help needed to lead a meeting for DMI Institution Outreach

Here’s a great opportunity for our OA community to carry the message of our spiritual awakening as the result of the steps. The Nexus rehabilitation center has invited us to return every Sunday at 4pm. The only requirement is abstinence and completion of the 12 steps. This is the first half of our twelfth step in action. Be apart of this amazing opportunity to share your experience, strength, and hope with the compulsive overeater who still suffers.

Nexus is located @ 8733 La Prada Drive, Dallas Texas 75228.  Please text Amanda M. @ 214-868-1866 if you are interested in participating in this opportunity.
