A few weeks ago, our soldier (his name is Jason) sent us an email:
WELL THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR THE PACKAGES YOUR SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS HAS BEEN SENDING. IT MAKES BEING OVER HERE MORE BEARABLE. IT IS NICE TO KNOW THAT PEOPLE STILL CARE ABOUT THE SOLDIERS OVERSEAS. EVERYTHING THAT YOU HAVE BEEN SENDING IS GREAT EXCEPT THAT WE DON'T HAVE A MICROWAVE HERE. I SHARE EVERYTHING THAT YOU SEND WITH MY SOLDIERS OVER HERE. THEY ESPECIALLY LIKE THE COOKIES. PLEASE LET EVERYONE KNOW HOW MUCH WE LOVE THE COOKIES. SO MANY PEOPLE ENJOY THEM THAT THEY BARELY MAKE IT THOUGH THE FIRST NIGHT.Sounds like he really likes the cookies! ;-)
He also told us a little about what his job is, and that he's got a family here in the States that he really misses. He's over there for a year, and is five months into his service.
He also included a picture of himself for our class. He drives a big truck -- the wheel is almost as tall as he is.
...I poked around the Internet a bit and I think I found the program we're doing this through: Soldiers' Angels.
