The war seems really far away until you actually know a captured GI. Click here for the whole story. His family is long time family friends of Ram's family. Please keep his family and especially Bowe in your prayers.
Our other family friends-our best man in our wedding, his father, was interviewed about Bowe. His daughter's blog has the interview. They are correct, we are not powerless, we have the power of prayer!
When we were out at ID a few years ago for the 4th of July, Bowe's family and our family went to the Baker's house to celebrate the 4th of July. (I hope I'm not confusing them with someone else. It's difficult when you marry into a family and go to a gathering like this and everyone knows everyone else except for you! I was doing well to keep all the Bakers straight that night.) It is awful that the family received the news about Bowe this year on the 4th of July.
We thank all our service men and women for the sacrifices they make and also for their families that sacrifice for our freedom too. May the Lord bless and keep Bowe and his family.
