It’s hard to believe but we’ve hit the 10th Anniversary of our ministry.
Operation Soldier Care (OSC) began on August 2, 2003. Our very first shipment consisted of one care package, which weighed a whopping 43 pounds! It was shipped on August 22, 2003 to Sgt. Tim Zawacky and his 101ST Airborne squad at Q-West, Iraq.
We now support an average of 45 soldiers and are sending 88 care packages weighing in at 1,100 pounds at a cost of $4,020.00 per packing session.
I am very thankful to all those individuals, businesses and BLG’s that have supported our troops over the years through the OSC Ministry. I am very thankful to all the volunteers who worked and continue to work so hard behind the scene to make a difference for our troops while they are deployed. I am very grateful for all those “Prayer Warriors” who take time out of their busy lives to pray for the OSC soldiers and Marines we have sent packages to over the years. I am also very grateful for the ladies in our FBCN Prayer Shawl Ministry who have been giving of their time and talent to send beautiful handmade Prayer Shawls to the wives and mothers of the soldiers we support. Each and every one has played a major part in making our OSC Ministry a success and a blessing to our soldiers on the front lines and it truly has been a great 10 years.
All I can say is “To God be all the glory” for all that has been accomplished!
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.
