Army Reserve units face unique challenges since the members are not always geographically co-located as are active duty units. These brave soldiers and their families will soon reconnect after months of separation, lots of change and also have to return to their civilian jobs.
Here’s how you can continue to pray: (1) Pray for Jeremy and those he served as they reintegrate back into their families and their civilian employment (as they were all Reservists); (2) pray that the Word of God that was planted in their hearts will continue its promised and good work; and (3) thousands of U.S. military are still deployed and deploying. Remember them and their families in your prayers.
