"Today Jamie, Christine and I all started tearing up while we were reading requests from our Service Members across the world. It is so easy to take our daily comforts and freedoms for granted. "Boots In The House" will be packing care packages to send to Iraq, Kuwait, U.S. Ships, Niger, Afghanistan and undisclosed locations tomorrow. I can't wait to see how many care packages we will be shipping!
"Lisa, I met with Boots In The House, the organization that has the care package campaign going on. While I was showing them the salt leaks, God dropped in me where they are to go. Our military base in Hawaii has had great loss - 12 Marines in a helicopter crash In Jan., one to a Motorcycle crash, and over the weekend of the conference a Marine drowned as their boat capsized. This is a small base and they have been hit hard. I know they are grieving over another tragedy at their base. I know this was not my idea. I am calling the base chaplain today to share the idea. We also have some Marine contacts to send some for them to pass out in Hawaii. I wanted to share this with you to encourage you in your ministry. I know He is going to use them in a powerful way."
Please remember to pray for our military today <3
I am just so excited to share this with all of you!
Lisa Albinus, and the children's pastor at her church in NC did a wonderful thing by inspiring children in all three services one Sunday to make cards for two deployed US soldiers.
The children did an outstanding job, and I received a box with 94 cards! It was just so heartwarming to see their sincere, heartfelt messages, and I know their efforts will be certain to bless these two soldiers, and those working alongside them. There are Scriptures attached to every card, and it's just so exciting that these children are also breathing the Word of God into these hearts.
I have adopted a soldier through the Adopt A US Soldier organization. When I realized how many cards there were going to be, I contacted them. They were very excited about all of this and gave me the name and address of another deployed soldier. So, these cards will be divided between these two soldiers. As the founder of AAUSS so aptly said...these will be sure to bless two bases at once!
I'm so moved and incredibly grateful to these kids for making such a difference. I know that their work will be dearly appreciated!!
God's richest blessings to all of our amazing men and women in uniform!
