Anchor in Afghanistan

post date: February 23, 2011

In the last three months we have shipped almost 60,000 copies of An Anchor for the Soul from our Book Depot in Chicago. From the beginning of this ministry in 2001, we have always put a priority on donating copies for the men and women serving in the United States Armed Forces. Thousands of copies have ended up in Iraq and Afghanistan.

How do those books get there? Here’s one answer we received from a military wife who received a box of Anchors from our ministry:

My husband has been in Afghanistan for past year working on a military base. I have mailed these books to him in small batches that he has given away to chaplains to pass on to others. My husband comes home March 3rd. God bless your ministry.

So the word of the Lord spreads one book at a time, one person at a time. We feel blessed to be a small link in the big chain of God’s purposes. May God bless this wife and her husband and the chaplains who pass along the books.

In the book of Proverbs, King Solomon left us a treasure trove of practical principles for daily living. The ardent pursuit of wisdom is every Chistian’s calling! Wisdom “is a tree of life to those who embrace her. Those who lay hold of her will be blessed.” (Proverbs 3:18)
