A great opportunity for you




I wanted to tell you all about an opportunity for you and your family to participate in.
Kim sent out an email giving information on a program to support our service men and women. It's called "adopt a soldier."
You go to the website and fill in a short form and then they set you up with a soldier. You can email, write letters, send packages- whatever you want to do- as much or little.

I signed up and I'm so excited about this program. I got set up with a woman soldier serving in Iraq. The really cool part is that she works with Apache Helicopters- just like my nephew Andy. Isn't God cool how he works!!

I think it will be so fun for the kids to be able to participate in this as well.
I can't imagine being so far from home without all the contact we take for granted.

If you want to participate you can go here:

It really looks like God lead you into this one by giving you someone who works with the Apache Helicopters like your nephew. That is great!

This is a great program. I'm sure that families as well as the soldiers they adopt will be blessed!

Wow I think that is a God thing for sure. Very nice thing to do as well.

We are on the same wavelength! I just got an email from a very similar program that they are desperate for sponsors and was going to put a link on my blog. We've sponsored two soldiers for over a year and it is such a blessing to our family!
