JOIN Lorenzo Rodriquez at Kloof Junior Primary School, 30 Abelia Road, Kloof, for his talk titled “Spiritual Solutions for Desperate Situations” on Sunday 17 April at 2.30pm, sponsored by First Church of Christ, Scientist, Kloof.

Rodriquez left his native Cuba while a teenager and moved to Mexico where he completed high school. A few years later he went to live in the United States, where he graduated with a BS in chemical engineering.

From a young age he felt a calling for helping professions. He worked with disadvantaged children in Mexico, and while in college in Connecticut worked first as an interpreter and then as a social worker. His caseload included families with social and economic problems as well as individuals with problems relating to drug and alcohol addiction.

After graduating, he worked for a short time as an engineer, but says that God always led him to the “people” business, and his career included all aspects of human resources.

Rodriquez developed a return-to-work programme for people who had been injured at work and were considered disabled. This earned him several awards for his pioneering work in the field of employment of people with disabilities. He gave many presentations on this subject, including at the annual meeting of the president’s committee for the Employment of People with Disabilities. In addition to this, he has led many training seminars on such topics as co-operative work relationships and employee coaching. He embraced the study of Christian Science in early adulthood. Since then he has been a participant in church activities, including conducting services in English and Spanish and teaching Sunday school.

He works as a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science healing.
