Forsaking Honor

Forsaking Honor

U.S. forces have immunized more than 8 million children and vaccinated 700,000 pregnant women since 2003. More than 600 health care facilities have been equipped with medical technology accompanied with 2,500 trained health-care workers to treat ailing Iraqi citizens. Nearly 3,000 schools have been renovated, and more than 3 million school kits have been awarded to Iraqi children.

America has donated an estimated $425 million worth of imported food to the Iraqi people, many of them denied such basic needs by Saddam's regime.

I remember that very shortly after Iraq was taken, the So. Baps. put out a call to gather boxes with supplies to feed a family of 4 for 1 month. Our church I know sent out about 70 boxes, along with the money needed to ship them. Containers full of these boxes went overseas within a month. They were ready to distribute before the country was fully secured!
And not one peep from the lamestream meda! Not one word!

Donal, sent you a fun e-mail.

All the So.Bap. churches did it, we were encouraged to send pictures or candy or something nice for the families too. We had boxes stacked in the hallways. Everyone not only participated, but got it done a couple of weeks before the pickup date! It was neat, because the men from the convention who escorted them over had a chance to give them to families personally. They told the families that Christians from the US had sent them. It was a great witness, all the people were amazed that Christians would think of them!
