No word from Dicksent in Haiti today, but thank God Dicksent and 160 students survived, all 10 staff survived and only 40 students were killed in the quake!

As always the United States comes to the aid of the country supplying Soldiers and U.S. Military help and aid to the survivors. But time is running out and the death toll is rising each hour.
Access to the people is difficult. Roads are in poor condition and Haiti’s major air port has only one working runway.
The first wave of soldiers from the 82nd Airborne Division landed in Haiti Friday morning.
The U.S.S. Carl Vinson also arrived in Haiti equipped with 19 helicopters, 3 operating rooms, and can produce fresh water. The USS Carl Vinson will be used as an offshore staging base for helicopters and other capacities to try and move relief goods from ships to shore. Close to 10,000 military personnel should be on the ground by Monday.
Our prayers are with all of the survivors and those providing rescue and aid to the Haitians.

It has been a while since we have updated the blog and a lot has been happening since the last entry.
We are continuing our successful primary mission of placing Bibles in the hands of US and Allied Military who are seeking Him stationed all over the globe. So far over 10,000 Pocket Bibles have been given out by request since 2007. In the spring 2010 "Lord willing", our new Heritage Edition Soldiers Pocket Bible will be available. We are very excited about the special features we have added that will make this Bible a special one. Click on the SBM homepage link for the press release details.
The Lord is spreading the news of our Ministry and Mission. In November, John our Executive Director was interviewed by World Net Daily. His interview can be accessed on the SBM homepage.
We have also found the right team to advance our efforts of establishing a PSTD support network and program.
Since Prayer is the glue that holds everything together, we have added a prayer request feature to the SBM website as we are dedicated to heartfelt intercessory prayer for all military men and women and their families.
It is my heartfelt prayer that as we turn the corner and begin another year of waiting with great anticipation for our Lord to come, that "The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace." Numbers 6:24-26 NKJV.
Blessings - In the Mighty Name of Yeshua

Hi! I wanna say Thank you for sending or donating Bibles and CDs. I am deployed here in Afghanistan, and the main thing that has seen me through these last 7 months is GOD!
