There are many ways to serve your country in the Military, many of them not involving combat. In fact, about 85 percent of today’s enlisted military jobs are non-combat. Such positions support the fighting forces, aid in disaster relief, construct infrastructure, provide medical care and legal help and much more. Essentially, any job you can find in a major city, you can find in the U.S. Military.
We see our salvation in Christ – even in the most complex and dangerous situations, faith and love are the only things that help our soldiers not to break down and give up and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom.Sam Kromstain pastor
Our soldiers serve our nation worldwide. While the military situation in the USA may not always seem serene, in other countries it is even more pessimistic. And that’s why our pastors constantly help our soldiers worldwide supporting their spiritual state and helping them to stay precise and concentrated even in the most complicated situations. We also help needy residents of problem regions worldwide. It has been encouraged by the chants of protest against God that rise from the swarm of humans also in revolt. At times gullible, we can find ourselves believing the lies.
