Ryan is coming home

In January I wrote about my daughter’s boyfriend Ryan. He serves in the army, 82nd Airborne. He was deployed in January to Afghanistan. But now he is coming home for a two week leave, they call it “vacation.”

He leaves on Thursday, but with the time difference that might be sometime today or tonight in our time zone. He will arrive here sometime on Monday. The first few days he will travel by convey through some dangerous terrain and territory. Then he will fly to Germany, then to Atlanta, then to Chicago.

That’s assuming he gets off his base without getting hurt… Last night the building where he “works” on the base in Afghanistan was bombed and completely demolished. Thankfully he and all the other workers had just left for the night. No one was injured. But, had any one been in the building…oh my.

Please pray for Ryan and my family as he travels home.

Please continue to pray for all the men and women serving in the military…and all those affected by war and discord around this broken world.
