Boot Camp Blessing!
Posted By: Sharon Scott 02-19-12
My Step-son left for Boot Camp at Parris Island on January 27, 2012. When my husband received the phone call that he was there safe, our hearts were filled with pride. His first letter home did not arrive, therefore we were a couple of weeks out getting his address to write. When we finally received his first letter, once again, we were proud to know that he was acclamating to the training regiment. By the time we received his second letter, our hearts overflowed with joy to know that God was renewing His spirit in him during the church services. His dad and I KNOW that God holds our son's life and the purpose for his life in His hands. It is fulfilling to know that He can serve our country and be encouraged in his relationship in Jesus Christ at the same time.
