The Human Spirit Project was founded by Jeff Royer, inspired by the book written by Navy Captain Gerald Coffee. Captain Coffee was a POW in Vietnam for 7 years and suffered through unimaginable circumstances, events and hardships. His existence during those 7 years was defined by the raw desire to survive and the faith that guided him through the entire ordeal.
Once repatriated back to America, Jerry Coffee dedicated the rest of his life to sharing the lessons he learned as a POW – a message of faith, hope and perseverance to help people realize that each of us can not only survive but go beyond survival.
Captain Coffee’s guiding principle…
“Reaffirming the invincibility of the human spirit”
In 2002, I was arrested on federal racketeering charges after working for five years as a Special Agent in the FBI. I could tell you a long story of what happened to me and try to convince you how I feel I was wrongly accused and wrongly convicted. How the FBI and DOJ twisted the information I had provided to them regarding the investigation into events surrounding the 9/11 terrorist attacks. How no one who knew me could testify for me because they were told they would be fired or transferred if they testified on my behalf. How corrupted the U.S Justice system really is and how exactly that works…just look at the events going on in the country today.
The Human Spirit Project is designed to be a platform whereby suffering people can come and seek assistance. We know we can’t meet the needs of the entire world, but we can strive to help as many people as possible.
We are indeed a Faith-based organization, founded not only on the belief Jerry taught us regarding the invincibility of the human spirit, but that the invincibility comes from the design and creation of every individual by the Almighty God.
It’s through Him we have the ability to not only survive but to go beyond survival.
God is Strength in the hearts of those who are hurting!
