Operation Home Front

Shelly Meyer

The St. Louis Dream Center (SLDC), an outreach of Joyce Meyer Ministries, recently had the opportunity to minister to some of our courageous US military personnel. Through Operation Home Front, an organization dedicated to supporting the troops and the families they leave behind, the SLDC was able to connect with the 354th Army Military Police Company.

On October 10th the SLDC barbeque grill team and other volunteers threw a going away party for the 120 members of the company and their families. They were able to share encouragement as well as dinner with these men and women on their last day with their families before they left Missouri for their deployment to Iraq. What a blessing to be able to reach out and show our troops that we love and support them and their families. We anticipate this being the first of many more opportunities to serve those who put their lives at risk to protect us every day.
