Merry Christmas from Iraq / Afghanistan



Camp Penendleton with Armor of Light

The Lord blessed our day at Camp Pendleton Sunday. The Lord gave us great servants, with Godly attitudes of joy, to serve the warriors and their families. The Lord gave us great weather (though earlier in the week the storm was scheduled to hit Sunday). The Lord fed over 700 people and multiplied the food. The Lord gave a toy to every girl and boy. The Lord provided enough canned goods for all the families to take food home. The Lord provided fun activities for the kids, great music, wonderful gifts for the adults, t-shirts, a fun raffle, and prayer for many. The Lord allowed us to see His Hand at work in the hearts and lives of people - there is no greater Christmas present than to experience God touching our hearts and changing the lives of people.

Some families came and got into line before 9:00am for a 2:00pm start time. There were some who did not recognize the need to stand in line, but went straight to the front of the line, since they had "special privileges" because they had just come from church. It was amazing in talking with them that they could not even tell me what they were standing in line for (toys, free food, a meal) - they just felt they should be able to stand in the front of the line. God graciously dealt with them and we appreciate the wisdom of all who talked with them and ministered to them the love of Christ. We are all at different places in our walks with the Lord. The Lord wants us to have a childlike faith, but not to act childish.

Again we recognize the intense need for prayer and appreciate all of you who faithfully prayer for Armor of Light. Many of you had some incredible talks and experiences with the warriors and families. Tears were shed and lives were touched, please continue to lift up these warrior families that God would cause a revival amongst them.
Ooh-rah for Jesus!

A PROMISE MADE ON CHRISTMAS DAY

A PROMISE MADE ON CHRISTMAS DAY
By: Mark A. Smith
Major, USA, Retired

The twenty third Psalm of David
The words came to my mind,
While starving in a prison camp
No food or love to find,
The sneering cadre came again
Only rice and salt,
He said I was a criminal
The war my own fault.
Kept in a stinking hole
A chain around my leg,
Like the Pilgrim I could have more
But the Devil I won’t beg.
Wounded, sick and weary,
The words came so clear
As if read from the Bible,
By my own Mother Dear,
Peace on earth, good will to men,
For it was Christmas Day,
Just happy to still be here Lord,
I was heard to pray.
Then the big BUFF bombers came the earth began to shake
I saw the fear in my enemy’s eyes,
And they began to quake.
I looked up to the heavensFor that silver, mighty bird,
But it was the voice of David
The wounded prisoner heard,
Thou preparest a table before me,in the presence of mine enemies,
The plates began to arrive,with food for you and me.
They said the Party gave it,
But I knew the real source
My prayers had been answered,
An angel served each course.
John and David on cane’s hobbled,
George thin as a rail,Ken, Ed and Jim so ashen,
Like the wise men down the trail,
We bowed our heads in humble thanks,
To God and not the NVA,
They shouted for some smiles of thanks,
But I began to pray.
Just seven skinny warriors,
By now believers all,
We looked at our enemy
Knowing he would fall.
In Paris they gave away
All that blood had bought,
But I remember an Angel
And all that he brought.
We survived with a purpose
Ordered from on high,
Now when I need courage
I find it in the sky.
So all of you smart people
Who think we cannot win,
Commit an act against your Maker,
He won’t forgive again,
Not my freedom for another man’s freedom,
I prayed that Christmas Day,
That was a promise to my God
I haven’t lost my way,
You think I am full of wrath,
That I spoil for the fight,
But it has to do with a promise
Made on Christmas night.

Tribute

A couple friends and I put together this video to Rushlow Harris' "Bagpipes Cryin". We collected family photos, as well as some freinds photos, from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. There are some SEALS (the dude that co-wrote the song gave me some photos) in this as well as SF troops currently in country. Some ID's are obscured for security or at the request of the people in the photos (not all of them SF personnel).

The song was inspired by an essay written by a retired SEAL who lost 15 of his men, as well the Chinook pilots from the 160th, in June '05 in A-Stan.

Let me know what you think - enjoy!

DEATH SQUADS

DOCUMENTARY:

The Death SquadsDate: Saturday 18th November 2006 The torture and slaughter of Iraqi civilians is reaching unprecedented heights with estimates of up to 655,000 dead. Night after night death squads rampage through Iraq's main cities. The majority of the killings are carried out by Shia death squads who want to turn Iraq into a Shia state aligned to Iran. This shocking film investigates the links between the death squads and high-ranking Shia politicians."
