Hi. My name is Kenneth Wayne Hancock. My friends call me Wayne or Wayneman. I have led quite a life. See my post “From ‘Highway to Hell’ to ‘Immortality Road'” ( https://immortalityroad.wordpress.com/2008/01/08/3/ ).
My quest really started in 1968. I was a medical lab technician in the 18th Surgical Hospital (MASH) in Quang Tri, Vietnam. All I did in the lab was cross match blood for our soldiers who were shot up. I drowned and dosed the horror of the bloody war through drugs and alcohol everyday. The terror of war caused me, however, to begin to search for the meaning of life.
I got out of the Army in 1969, met and married my wife Linda Kay, enrolled in college in the East Bay in California, continued to play rock music, take drugs, and search for the truth. It was then that it was shown to me that one’s old ego, the self, had to die. So I studied World Religions and philosophy, but none had the answer on how to get rid of the evil monkey screaming in my ear demanding me to do bad things. I did not go to the Christian churches, for I was raised in them and did not believe they could help me (See my post “Throwing the Baby out with the Bathwater” https://immortalityroad.wordpress.com/2008/01/11/throwing-the-baby-out-with-the-bath-water/ ).
Then in 1971 a man told me that the old man “is crucified with Christ,” as in Romans 6:6. And that sparked a stupendous conversion to Christ. We became full time missionaries to Mexico and other places for 14 years. I was on an expedition to Mt. Ararat, Turkey, in search of Noah’s Ark and spoke to thousands giving lectures across the country and appeared on television many times.
We had five children to finish raising, so we finished our degrees, became teachers. I taught American and English Literature and Spanish for a number of years. I’m currently an Adjunct Instructor for a couple of local universities. I am an author of two books (available from the author or viewable online on this blog.
