Although we are barely into 2022, I have the joy of looking back at God’s blessings on the Eagle Commission last year. Here are just a few highlights from 2021:
- Increased visibility of military chaplains and their ministry at Access2021 in Goshen, Ind., particularly George Youstra’s message and our Eagle Commission/GBIF dinner.
- Charis Fellowship unanimous vote to recognize the Eagle Commission as a national ministry organization.
- Honor of participating at the memorial service and gravesite service for John Schumacher.
- Promotion for two of our chaplains!
- Adding Zach Williams as our newest chaplain candidate (future chaplain).
- Working with 2 potential chaplain candidates who are in various stages of the pipeline.
None of this happens in a vacuum. While God could do all this without any human agency, He chooses to involve us in His work of taking the Gospel to a needy world. God works as His people are moved to pray. But you have also entrusted your treasure to this ministry.
Thanks to your generosity, the Eagle Commission finished 2021 within our budget and then some, which will allow me to represent you and “catch up” on non-virtual visits to our chaplains and their families in 2022. So, in case you missed the beginning, THANK YOU for your support as together we “take the Gospel of peace to our nation’s warriors.”
