That makes three Iowa National Guard soldiers we have lost in the last ten days. We've also had countless wounded. And....I most certainly do not want to forget Spc. Shawn Muhr of Coon Rapids, Iowa who was the first soldier killed after the Iowa troops deployed to Afghanistan in October. Spc. Muhr was "active", not a National Guardsman, but he was part of the family, just as well!!
|BECAUSE PRAYER CHANGES EVERYTHING|
There remains somewhere in the neighborhood of two months left for our guard troops to maintain their mission objective in Afghanistan. Two months doesn't sound like much, but when you break it down into days....it sure is. 60 days....that's alot.
What is tugging at my heart today is the need for a prayer vigil. Why you say?
BECAUSE PRAYER CHANGES EVERYTHING......
I'm not sure how a prayer vigil can be put into action. I've never done one before, but I know people, you know people who know other people........ We need to do this, not only for our soldiers but the families of Spc. Muhr, Spc. Maher, Spc. Nichols and Staff Sgt. Justice. God is at work today searching for "hearts that want to work for him".
