Outreach #14 (Letter to a Solider)
My outreach for last week was to write a letter to a solider serving overseas. I wrote a letter to a woman named Jessica who is serving our country in the U.S. Navy. As I was writing this letter I began to think of all of the men and women who are risking their lives every day to defend and honor our wonderful Country.
I am praying for Jessica. She could be someone’s Mother, or a Wife, a Sister, or an Aunt…..I may not know her personally, but I know that our God does, and he loves her unconditionally!! Please pray today for our men and women serving our country. Pray for protection and for strength, and most importantly that they would come to know Jesus personally if they don’t already. There is no greater relationship on earth!!
I wrote this verse in the letter that I sent to Jessica:
The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore. Psalm 121 5-8
