Many of you know that I have been connected to a Christian ministry (almost 30 years now) that supports men and women in our Armed Forces, linking them up with each other, providing excellent Christian growth resources, and equipping them to be ambassadors for Chrst in the military.
In the years I have been connected to CMF, I’ve had the opportunity to be an integral part of the nimistry as a Local Contact, Local Representative, Area Coordinator and have also served in a leadership role. Of all the parachurch ministries focused on our men and women in uniform, CMF is among the smallest, and at the same time unique in that the ministry vision is to equip men and women in uniform to be ‘indigenous’ missionaries in uniform.
Years ago, a Chaplain at Ft. Devens invited me and another brother to a men’s breakfast sponsored by a local church of his denomination. He told the men in attendance that we were able to take the message of the Gospel to places where he could/would never set foot. That made a huge impression on me and confirmed to me that rather than attend Bible College and Semainary with an eye to the Chaplaincy was not where God wanted me to be, but as a soldier for Christ I was to remain in the enlisted ranks of US Army Special Forces, from whidh I retired in 1996.
Please take a few minutes to check out Christian Military Fellowship , maybe bceome a part of the CMF family, or even just support the work that they do. Without the support of regular folks like you all, either directly to CMF, or via charitable organization campaigns likt the CFC, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do for out men and women in uniform.
