[…]time. We develop a medical evacuation plan in the event we take casualties; we plan for actions on contact, for vehicle breakdowns, for redundant communication methods, for follow-on objectives, and for a quick reaction force to bail us out if we encounter an enemy force greater than ourselves. My experiences during my Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) deployment demonstrated to me that I needed to invest a similar level of detail and passion in my execution of SPIRITUAL planning (1 Timothy 4:7-8).

[…]shows you in the ways you should minister with the military. And then do it.  Austin: Keep your contact information updated with the OCF home office so that we can network more easily.

[…]to Him even more as we learned that Darren was leading nightly patrols and experiencing frequent contact with enemy forces.

What Works for New Officers?

[…]board.) TIP: Before you head to your first assignment, call OCF at 1-800-424-1984 so you can contact an officer who is an OCF member where you are going. 2. Do not forsake ACCOUNTABILITY. You are known by the company you keep. Find a brother or sister in Christ and keep each other walking the talk. Go to your chaplain and ask where the Bible studies are being held. TIP: Seek out someone who will hold you accountable. 3. Decide now WHOM YOU WILL SERVE (Josh. 24:15). Will it be the Lord or yourself? Why are you in the military? Have […]

Whose Arm Doth Reach

[…]each of us prior to deploying, so that they could be dispensed regularly even when he was out of contact…. When my dad finally did come home each year…he made us his priority—soccer games, dance classes, piano recitals—he was there…. He seemed remarkably equipped to return from long absences and reestablish immediacy in his relationships with us, to affirm us, to amuse us, to hold us accountable, and to talk us down from ledges. Perhaps his intuitive, highly verbal way of relating to us was thrust upon him, being surrounded with daughters… Whatever the source of my father’s knack for […]
