What Our Soldiers Do For Us

My friend, Angela told me a story. She attended a funeral last week. The man that passed away had a son that was deployed. This soldier was unable to make it home for his father’s funeral.

The pastor held a cell phone in his hand. He said, “This might seem strange to conduct a prayer service holding a cell phone.” The deployed soldier was on the line and was able to hear his father’s funeral service.  Angela said, “You could hear this young man say amen and follow along with the prayers.”

Because he was deployed and protecting us, this soldier was unable to attend his father’s funeral.  God bless him and his family.  We are blessed by the sacrifices made everyday by our troops and their families.
