I have a special friend that I have been writing to. He is in the Army right now, stationed in Afghanistan. Tuesday he went on a mission with his platoons and has not returned yet. He told me that they may encounter firefighting with the Taliban. I have been praying for the safe return of him and all his men since they left, but not heard anything so far. Originally he thought it would only be a day or so that they would be out.. He has no family left and it seems I'm the only one he is close to, yet we haven't met yet. He plans on retiring within the month and wants to start a new life, hopefully with me. Please keep him in your prayers. He loves God, and life. We have a connection that only God could have arranged.
