I received this email today:
I just received this message and I am asking you to send up prayers
A young couple in our church, the husband is in Iraq and due to be sent
to the states in three weeks. He called his wife this morning at 9:30
(our time) to say goodbye to her and their children (they have a 2 yr
and a ten month old). He and his group will be leaving at 4 pm today
time) on foot to go into Baghdad …no vehicles or tanks will be taken.
Their mission will last 2 or 3 days and the purpose is to go door to
and capture all snipers in the city. The commanders have told the men
dangerous mission this is and it is very likely that most will not come
to their base. His wife is terrified and called on everyone in our
pray. She said the men are also fearful. They were all told to call
families before they leave.
I’m asking each of you to pray for these men and women for the next 3
If your church has a prayer chain, PLEASE call and ask them to pray.
Godspeed to all on this mission
