Holiday Letters from Overseas

By Remy Benoit

Christmas is a lovely, but often difficult time. We have so many expectations that are never met, probably can't be as we all are "all too human."

Sometimes there are financial problems.

Sometimes we are lonely.

Sometimes there is devastation in our lives for which we truly bear no responsibility; devastation that comes from outside forces well beyond our control.

Sometimes we are far from loved ones, afraid, in a foreign place, in combat.

Whatever it is that nibbles, or, indeed, bites away at your Christmas joy, sometimes if we climb out, beyond our own loneliness and pain, we can touch the hearts of others and bring a very special Christmas to our own little corner of the world.

If you need some Christmas hope, please go to for Holiday Letters from Overseas. and read ALL the way through.

Our prayers are will all of you in service, be safe, come home to us.
