Parry’s desire to work with adults in community corrections came to an end as he struggled with alcoholism. When he recovered from the damages and wreckage of that sort of life, he decided to dedicate the rest of his life to spreading the word of God to his own Aboriginal people. Giving them the type of hope that never fades and lasts an eternity.
Parry has also done extensive volunteer work at a variety of non-profit Christian organizations, such as Hope Mission. He has now decided to follow his dream of having his own Bible Teaching Ministry.
