“And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” ~Colossians 3:17

Dear Praying Friends,

Thank you for the opportunity to serve alongside of you in the name of Christ. It is a great honor to do this and we are forever in your debt.

The past two months have been among the busiest and most productive of our ministry. Join us in praising the Lord for the following highlights:

  • For three souls saved since our last prayer letter.
  • For our PTSD Camp held in May. The Lord blessed us with six new families. We had police veterans, military veterans and civilians suffering from PTSD.
  • For the completion of my book, Wounded Spirits—Hope and Freedom for those suffering from PTSD.
  • For the opportunity to provide PTSD training via Internet at seven bases.
  • For ten new PTSD Counselors.
  • For an Overseas Church Planter Missionary family.
  • For PTSD Workshops in WI, GA and ME.
  • For four new AFBM Missionary Candidates. I believe we will have two on board by our next letter.
  • For Doug II graduating with a MAT in Mathematics in Secondary Education.

Many of you have asked for a breakdown of those we see at our PTSD Training. Below, I have broken down the categories to show you who is attending training:

  • 46% Military Veterans
  • 24% Local Church Members wanting to help people with PTSD
  •  20% First Responders
  • 7% Abused Children now adults
  • 3% Abused Adults

Though we see movement from year to year it is good to see how the Lord is helping the Local Church in this area.

Please join us in praying for the following requests:

  • (Always) For Christ to have the preeminence in all we do.
  • For Our AFBM Family Camp/Candidate School 7/30-8/2.
  • For training new missionaries to begin deputation.
  • For new church planters. We still need church planters.
  • For our soul winning efforts.
  • For more Scriptures donated to our cause to reach the military.
  • For more open doors for our military, their families, and veterans.
  • For two camps I will be preaching this summer, that the Lord will use me for His glory.
  • For the Lord to use churches to reach our heroes and their families with the Gospel of Christ.
  • For a new iPad as my old one is dying.
  • For the funds needed to translate our books into Vietnamese and Russian.
  • For the funds needed to edit and publish my new book.

Thank you again for your support in reaching our military with the Gospel.  We love you in the Lord and are praying for all of you.

Your Servants, Doug & Debbie Carragher
