OSC 113th and 114th packing for the troops

The OSC Ministry is pleased to report that the shipments for 113th and 114th packing for the troops were a success.  The care packages have arrived to their final destinations in Afghanistan, Iraq, Germany, Korea and Diego Garcia. Amen to that!

It was a great packing session since we had some extra goodies to add in each box. We even had some extra small hands that helped to get the job done. Meet our youngest volunteer Jasmine.  Jasmine is the daughter of one of OSC’s former troops, U.S. Army Veteran Travis Jones, and she is the granddaughter of OSC Shopper & Packer, Blue Star Mother Lora Jones.

In the 144 care packages we included 14 bibles, 158 tracts, and 144 letters. These small little touches to each care package definitely help lift the troops spirits as they serve our country away from family and friends.

Together the shipments weighed in at 1,656 pounds with a total cost of $5,914.00 with funds to spare for our remaining 2017 shipments. We give praises to the Lord for providing for our troops!

As we push thru 2017 we continue to let others know about Operation Soldier Care’s mission. On February 25th, and 26th we had the opportunity to participate with several other FBCN ministries at the Missions Conference in the Commons.

Below is a photo of our table that we had setup in the Commons. We had many visitors to share the good news as to how the Lord is using Operation Soldier Care, a First Baptist Church Ministry to help bless the troops.





A big thank you goes out to our troops, and to all the volunteers and workers behind the scenes to keep this ministry going.

God bless and we will see you next time!

OSC 109th Packing For The Troops

osclogoI am pleased to report that our 63 boxes from the August 16, 2016 packing session have successfully been shipped to their destinations.  The 63 tracts that were included in each package should certainly help pick up the spirits of soldiers as the hot summer months come to an end.

The shipment weighed in at 725 pounds with a total cost of $2,947.13.

As of August 23, 2016 the Operation Soldier Care Ministry celebrates its’ 13th anniversary.  In thirteen years we have adopted 1,228 troop members, shipped 9,156 boxes that equals 115,924 pounds or 57.96 tons. We have raised and spent $430,847 during this period. We have also included a total of 10,727 tracts/booklets and 21,708 homemade cards and letters.

Not only are these stats amazing but the impact that our OSC Ministry has had on the troops is also very amazing.

I give many thanks to all of the faithful hands from volunteers and supporters over the years who have helped make this happen. You are a blessing and I am filled with gratitude that you all have chosen to serve the men and women who serve our country.

God bless and Happy 13th Anniversary OSC!

Handmade Christmas stockings for the troops

Our hand crafted Christmas stockings for the troops were decorated by Laverne, Laura and Lauren Paul. Sixty stockings sent in all. Amazing work by some amazing ladies. Thank you and God bless!

It’s was a very Merry Christmas care packing celebration at our 103rd packing session for the troops!

Our 107 boxes from November 28, 2015 packing session were placed on Santa’s sleigh for delivery to our deployed soldiers for Christmas. The care packages have begun to arrive to their destinations in Iraq, Afghanistan, E. Africa, Korea, Kosovo and Kuwait.  We are pleased that they are arriving just in time for the holiday since there are lots of goodies inside to certainly make our soldiers feel our love from home.

The shipment weighed in at 1,177 pounds with a total cost of $3,643.00. We included 107 tracts, 100 Christian magazines , 425 Christmas cards and letters.

Lots of hard work went into this OSC 13th Christmas shipment.

Thank You from Captain Tim, USAF

Dear Tony,Thank you note

On behalf of the Regional Network Operations and Security Center Afghanistan (RNOSC-A) Systems section, I wanted to pass along our thanks for your continued support and care packages!! I’ve fairly recently returned home and now that I have a little time I figured I would write and say thanks. It was quite nice receiving your boxes and notes every couple of weeks. Our troops really enjoyed getting them and devouring everything! Please let your volunteers know that we really appreciate everything and that we are quite thankful for all that they’ve done and continue to do!

Thanks again!


Cpt. Tim, USAF
