USO part 2

Today after church, I spoke with the USAF chaplain that organized the USO tour that Third Day just did in the Persian Gulf.  He said that they did shows in Iraq and also Kuwait.  He said that it was amazing! They had a great time playing and then talking and meeting the troops after the shows.  He said they were already dreaming of doing it again.  My chaplain friend told me he spent two years getting through the red tape of getting a “Christian group”  signed up for the tour.  He said they are planning to have a tour to Afghanistan next  and possibly another trip to Iraq and Kuwait.  Please pray for the folks who are organizing these tours that they can continue to break ceilings in getting Salt and Light to the troops. As someone who has been to the Persian Gulf, I know how much it means to the troops to be able to have some time away from battle and what a better way than with some good music and the Love of Jesus.
