Angel for Higher chronicles is about the joyfully inspirational journey of Robert Hendershot, a recovering alcoholic, and his son Trevor, who has Down syndrome, as they seek God’s will for their lives.
The practical lessons God taught Robert in his recovery helped him to become a better father to Trevor, and vice versa. The spiritual lessons God taught him as Trevor’s dad have helped him to remain sober since August 24, 1997.
During Trevor’s early school years, he was bullied and told he was worthless. Nevertheless, as a senior, he was elected as homecoming king in the greatest landslide in his high school’s history.
Trevor was also told that the best job he could ever hope for would be folding towels in a hotel Laundromat. However, after graduating, he was hired by Major League Baseball’s Los Angeles Angels and by the National Hockey League’s Anaheim Ducks to be the greeter at their team stores. Trevor’s known, admired, and often loved by hundreds of thousands of sports fans, fellow employees, and professional athletes.
Robert and Trevor are in the process of forming a 501c3 non-profit corporation, Angels For Higher, to help facilitate the “Trevorizing” of additional stadiums and arenas. Their mission is to encourage the hiring of individuals with Down syndrome to work as greeters (and pro-life ambassadors) at sports venues across North America and ultimately around the world.
“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we can ask or imagine . . . ” (Ephesians 3:20).
