Fighting for Holiness in Iraq
Several months ago we received a request for books from a Chaplain serving in Iraq. We sent boxes of CJ Mahaney's "The Cross Centered Life" and "Not Even a Hint." The following are from two different letters we got back. And we loved the picture they sent.
"On behalf of the chapel staff here at Multi-National Corps Iraq here at Camp Victory, we would like to thank you for your support of our troops. Your books were a blessing for all the men and women here serving in Iraq. We appreciate your dedication and support in helping us provide religious support for the troops."
"...the most popular book of all was the one about LUST by Joshua Harris, "Not Even a Hint." Amazing how many soldiers sailors & Marines have worn out the pages of this book. We ran out quicker of this book. They are so hungry for ANY advice on how to keep themselves pure, especially in this loose morals environment of war is hell ethose on the base camps. There has been a lot of "hooking up" and so many are tempted to follow that course of sin and try to walk with Christ too. So those who know that is wrong are very eager for the truth."
Please join us in praying for the men and women serving in Iraq and Afganistan. Pray not only for their physical well-being but for their spiritual health.
