Our 83 boxes from the OSC 96th Packing Session have successfully arrived to our 53 deployed soldiers! This shipment weighed in at 1,002 pounds! We distributed care packages to 44 Army, 7 Navy, 1 Marine, and 1 USAF deployed soldiers.
This March shipment marks another OSC milestone that pushed us to the 8,000 care package mark. To give you a visual of how many care packages that really is just refer to my graph to get an idea of how many boxes that truly is. That’s pretty amazing!
What else is pretty amazing is that some our FBA students collected and donated items to fill 10 OSC care packages for the troops. This shipment was packed with some wonderful goodies that we know the soldiers and Marines will really enjoy. It just proves that no matter how old you are you can make a difference in the lives of our men and women serving our country. Thank you FBA kids! Great job!
As the warm months are ahead of our troops let’s continue to pray for our men and women in uniform and remain faithful the Lord will help each and everyone through their deployment. As God’s word says, “Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 18:19 NASB We shall pray until the last soldier arrives safely home.
