excellent post... Please remember, we are standing with you in thought and in prayer. If you (or anyone you know) needs/wants extra mail & goodies, PLEASE let me know -- I'm serious, I've devoted my life to supporting our deployed troops in any way I can. I can adopt soldiers myself, and/or refer you to the organizations I'm involved with that gets soldiers adopted, to get extra mail and therefore a morale lift. I'm dead serious, ok? :) Here for y'all, 24/7.

You are in our prayers.

Thank you for the post. Keeping y'all in my prayers. Can't tell you how grateful I am for you folks who've answered our country's call. Please pass our thanks along.


Hi Pastor B!

Just wanted to let you know that we all back here in the beautiful ND are always thinking of you. I will make sure to give the address you sent me to grandma and grandpa. You know they will write lots. God bless and stay safe.
Your friend,

Thank you SO much for sharing what has to be a bittersweet time - I remember the exact same moment you mentioned when my children's Dad returned to VietNam, and I left Hawaii for home..........worst day possible, and LOTS of chest pains (and I was only 19 - Yikes!!). God Bless you - you are in our thoughts and prayers, and we are here for you daily - should you need us, do not fail to contact us!! Go With God!!



Dear Pastor,
As the Pastor watches over God's flock and tends their spiritual needs, I will be lifting you up in prayer. It is the Pastor who needs more prayer, I have found.

Yes, the flock needs your guidance and strength. Yet I have learned that we are a selfish people! We forget that you are a person as well.

I send you Christ's Holy Spirit to lift up your voice when there are no words. I send you Christ's strength when your body is worn. I send you Christ's love when you all alone. You never are far from Him. And I send you gratitude.

Thank you for your family's and your sacrifice for our country and me. I am a stranger to you, yet you care enough to see that I am safe. Thank you so very much. I will also pray for your safe return home. Thank you.

Why I Write...

  • On 22 November 05 I received orders to report to Ft Shelby, Mississippi. I have been ordered to join the 1st Brigade Combat Team from Minnesota. I will be the chaplain of the 1-125 Field Artillary Unit, which is being re-tasked as a convoy security unit. We will leave for Iraq in the spring of 2006. Here is the story of my journey.
