Sharing Experiences that Please the Lord to Build the Body of Christ

It is wondrous how God chooses to bless people by guiding them on His path for them as can be found in Passing Through: Exploring the Envelope, Part One. This nonfiction memoir tells the story of author Captain Manny Sousa of the US Navy, raised in an Army family during the Great Depression, World War Two, the Korean War, and the Cold War through 1955.

Following Manny’s commissioning as a Navy Ensign and designation as a naval aviator in 1956, he flew the first carrier-based aircraft capable of delivering nuclear weapons on his initial Western Pacific carrier deployment. During Vietnam War deployments in 1964 and 1966, Manny flew F-4 Phantoms. In 1968, 1970, and 1971 Vietnam deployments, he flew A-7 Corsair II’s for a total of 300+ combat missions. Sadly, resulting domestic stress contributed to the breakup of his marriage and continental separation from his four children.

In 1969 Manny’s departed aunt Jean spiritually revealed herself to him in successive three-hour conversations spanning three days, summarized in Chapter One of Passing Through: Exploring the Envelope, Part One. Ever since then, Jean continued her heaven-sent companionship and loving guidance in Manny’s life.

Manny retired with 31 years of service in 1986 and went sailing the Atlantic, then flying gliders into his eighties, plus many other adventures to be chronicled in Part Two. It was the blessing of his aunt Jean’s presence and loving guidance in his life which led him to question why God would bless him so. Why would God do this for him, a sinner who has broken all ten commandments? He has found that it is his ministry to now share the countless miraculous experiences with the Holy Spirit to encourage others to acknowledge the Holy Spirit within each baptized Christian.
