Another UBFer With Literary Pretensions? 
16th-Jan-2006 02:59 pm
While I was surfing Amazon.com this weekend, I saw a book called VICTORIOUS GRACE, by Dany Hembikides (sp?). I know there's a Teddy H. who is a mover and shaker with a UBF chapter at Triton, and since the name is not all that common, I am wondering what connection there is, if any. I was looking at the page for CROSSING THE RED SEA, Andrew Martin's autobiography, and that was one of the books that popped up at the bottom of the screen. (I did see that Andrew has padded his Reader's Reviews with compliments from UBFers, including himself. "Michael A. Martin" is his birth name, BTW.)

Any idea about VICTORIOUS GRACE and its UBF connection?

There were two ubf Hembekides, they were brothers, from the OSU chapter way back in the day, mid 1980's. The younger one was Danny, not sure of the spelling. But this spelling with one 'n' could be correct because they were born and grew up in the Middle East and Africa, not the USA. So that unusual spelling may be correct, and it may be his brother.

About the time that 'Teddy' got arranged marriage, the younger brother abruptly quit the ubf. The official discrediting story was that the younger brother wanted to marry the woman that they arranged for the older brother to marry. He could not get arranged to her so he quit the ubf and was never mentioned or seen again. Now, as with all old ubf offical stories, I am sure that the ubf explanation story is a total fabrication.

If his story is so compelling, I wonder why this self-proclaimed UBF leader would need to resort to this sort of dishonesty. I guess UBF really did "change" him in many ways.
