I received an email from a soldier in Iraq. He is a friend of mine and a fellow Christian. He writes:
“I am just south of where all the activity is happening. I am in the land of Ur. I can see the temple, or something like that, just off the base where Abraham was born.
“My morale goes up and down all the time. I have been very busy, so don’t have time to rest. I do know the Lord is always with me and I get mail that keeps letting me know they are thinking and praying for me.
“Most of the time, I am doing fine. I have made new friends and most of them are believers. That is such a blessing -- much different from the last time I was deployed in 1990 and 1991. It takes two or more to keep the faith. We all help each other in our prayers.”
I wanted to share this email from an American soldier in the hope that you will pray for him and his family and every other soldier, sailor, airman and marine who puts his and her life on the line for our freedom and for the freedom of others.
I’m Cal Thomas in Washington.
