BIL deploying


My brother-in-law will be deploying on August 13th to Iraq. They have an eight-year-old girl and six-year-old boy. Please keep my sister and niece and nephew in your prayers. This is the first time he’s had to deploy since the kids came along.



God bless him - and how lucky his kids are to have a hero for a father.


What a wonderfully nice thing to say. Thank you so much. That’s how I feel, too.


God bless, may he be safe on his journey and return safe home soon! May the Lord keep company and give comfort to your sister and niece and nephew as well as the entire family until his safe return! GOD Bless.


Lots and lots of prayers! My DH is deploying to Afghanistan sometime next year or possibly early '11. We have five kids.

I know exactly how that family feels. Prayers to Mary to intercede for Mom, St. Joseph to stand by Dad, and the Christ Child to comfort the children!
