Forging Young Men to be Extraordinary Examples for Christ!
One of the young men had a particularly difficult test to face at the end of the tough nine weeks of Basic Training. The night before Advancement (the ceremony recognizing successful completion of Basic Training) while en route to be at the ceremony, this man’s family was involved in a tragic automobile accident. Several family members were seriously injured and the accident took the life of his mother. In times like these the discipline of utter dependence on the Lord is so important. It has encouraged this young man and kept him focused on God in the midst of a very difficult challenge. We continue to lift him and his family to the Lord in prayer and have been encouraged with reports from those involved in ministering to them. God is sustaining the family in miraculous ways.
Arriving untested in many respects, the young men of ALERT Basic Training Unit 54 left more mature and better equipped physically, spiritually, and emotionally to handle whatever difficulty may come their way. We pray that God may grant the opportunity for many more men to be a part of this unique and life-changing experience. We rejoice in the privilege of seeing God “forge” these young men into extraordinary men, fit for His use!
