lives," he said.
"If I were now doing the job that
I was doing earlier, I would do it
differently. I now approach things
_from the standpoint that I can
-trust God to show me what to do
land to be a good testimony to oth-
lers. So many people that I have
"come in contact with, in law en-
forcement, are unaware that God
-is our Savior. So many of them
Zneed what I have now. And I try to
Tbe an influence in those people's
Hives. I have seen specific instances
^where I work, where God has
■¡■opened doors for me to tell people
^what my life used to be like and
rwhat it is now. I give Him the
glory, feeling that's really my job.
Z "If a young man or woman were
^interested in this line of work, they
^should make sure of their reasons.
;If it's the allure of the excitement,
rthe things you see on TV or the
Imovies, then that's probably not
-the best reasons. My job is like
^most other fields. There is a place
;for all different types. They should
approach it with the question, "Is
;this God's purpose for my life?" No
"jnatter what we attempt to do, if
3t's not His will, then we're going
"to be miserable until we get to the
place where we're in His will. It's
so primary in everything in one's
life. It affects your family, the place
where you live, your standard of
living - everything.

"I would have tA caution a young
person going into this type work,"
he said. There were many weeks
when he could not go home be-
cause he was so deep undercover.
"I was out on surveillance for
weeks at a time, in Central Texas
on the hills and on air strips wait
ing for a plane to land - a plane
that sometimes never came. I've
found myself with a couple of guns,
in freezing rain along the coast,
and in the brush with a parka over
me. Times that you couldn't tell
your family where you were, what
you were doing, where you were
going, and couldn't call them when
you got there," he said.
His wife, Jackie, understands the
demands of being married to an
undercover agent. "The inevitable
call to duty is something we have
learned to deal with. I have always
admired Larry for the job that he
does. It's been hard at times. I
longed to share the problems he
has endured in ways other than
just being there for him. Our chil-
dren, Jonathan and Hannah, and
I are very proud of Larry for the
work that he does."
They're the reason he places 160
miles between his two lives. And
he feels at peace with himself for
