Wine to Water is the uplifting and heart-breaking personal journey of a young man finding his calling in life. Dickson "Doc" Hendley is the son of a preacher who spent many years trying to discover his true passion in life. He knew he loved Harley motorcycles, playing his guitar, and being a bartender in North Carolina. But it wasn't until he met a woman who told him about her husband's work at an aid organization called Samaritan's Purse that Doc felt his interest truly perked. Doing research on his own, he discovered that there is a vast worldwide water crisis. Disturbed by this knowledge, Doc put together a "wine to water" event at a local bar to raise awareness of the crisis and raise money.

After trying to donate the money to Samaritan's Purse, Doc was roped in by the organization to see for himself the crisis first hand. Asked to be sent to the worse place in the world, Doc was sent to Darfur in 2004. Once there, Doc went to the UN "no-go" hot spots to help the people that other aid organizations didn't assist. First hand he discovered the atrocities of a government sponsored genocide. Although he found himself mostly against the Janjaweed terrorists, he also helped them out to have clean drinking water. He also realized that while he sided with the SLA rebels, they were not saints.

On the ground in Darfur, Doc learned that he was good working with people and solving problems. Instead of putting in expensive new wells, he and his crew soon became experts at fixing the wells as a much cheaper alternative. He also learned that to truly achieve clean water, he had to educate the people on how to maintain and fix their own wells.

Doc faced many death defying experiences and also came face to face with pure evil.

Format: Hardcover
It is an exhilarating experience to read a story that is totally contemporary, incredibly significant, and involves situations that are of immediate interest and concern. This book was purchased by my husband Ray Barreras because, during recent trips to visit friends and participate in various mission-type activities in the Dominican Republic, he became aware of the work of FilterPure, which produces ceramic water filters. He had already purchased a number of these filters from the FilterPure factory in that country to distribute to the people he was working with when the Haiti earthquake occurred. Expanding efforts to raise money in our local church and various quilt groups he was involved with kept Ray tuned in to the efforts of FilterPure to establish a second factory in Haiti, so the efforts of Doc Hendley to facilitate this were of great interest.

As this splendid narrative makes clear, Doc Hendley's efforts with Wine to Water go far beyond the specific work in Haiti which first sparked our interest. The book is a gripping, scary and honest story of the incredible challenges facing our world as seen through the eyes of one individual trying to make a difference. Most of the book deals with Doc's efforts to bring water to the refugee camps and villages in the most dangerous regions of war-torn Darfur. The year he spent in this endeavor, his miraculous survival after his team was attacked, his obvious struggles with PTSD (though he doesn't use that term) make this an adventure story of the highest order.

One thing that was focused in my awareness by Doc's book is the incredible complexity of the water crisis facing our world. He makes it emphatically clear that the loss of life due to the lack of potable water far exceeds that from any other cause.

Although I have YET to read Doc's new release (I'll dive in later tonight), I had the opportunity to hear him speak, preach, inspire and change lives back in Nashville this past September at a business event. His story is absolutely life-changing - for him, the people he impacts and anyone who crosses his path. He is the REAL DEAL. He is authentic, dedicated, genuine, serious yet adorable, humorous yet intensely focused, and absolutely jaw-dropping on stage. Check out our video capture of his story in Nashville here:
[...]

I am fortunate to attend several business functions annually to see/hear many different speakers, but I can honestly say, Doc will change the way you look at things and shift your perspective to focus on what really matters in pursing your passion in life. And, if you're lucky (like we were!), he may even hang around after his on-stage appearance to get to know the people within your company and 'saddle up at the Nashville saloon' over some BBQ and succotash to dive deeper into his story and continue to impact the lives of others.

BUY THIS BOOK TODAY and start your new year off with a mission to do more! Congrats Doc!

In his first book, Doc has proven the rare ability to be easy to relate to, while staying completely open about a not-so-smooth past. It's an extremely refreshing read for those of us who know we're not perfect but recognize that we have it in us to make a difference. I'll continue to read it over and over...until he releases another. Well done, Doc!
