Also, lift up our military returning home injured and facing challenges. One soldier in particular, Sgt. Jesse McCart, stepped on an IED in Afghanistan in July 2012. He is in outpatient rehab in Texas. His updates, photos, and contact info are listed on a separate page. Mail and encouragement is so important to our servicemen and women who are rehabbing. Other soldiers from the same unit are listed and could use encouragement, as well. Pre-paid stamped postcards obtained at the post office are a great way to do this regularly.
If you have a prayer request, please email me and indicate if you want it added to the list or kept confidential. My email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
