Khowst Province, Afghanistan – Some people search their entire life for signs telling them what to do. For Erika Espeseth, it was a billboard for military chaplaincy that pointed her in the direction she had been searching for.
She finally knew what she wanted in life: a life of ministry and service.
In January 2010, she would agree to enlist as a chaplain’s assistant half-way through her senior year of high school, something she never thought possible.
Spc. Erika Espeseth, a Madison, WI, native, is a chaplain’s assistant with the 3rd Special Troops Battalion, 3rd Brigade Combat Team “Rakkasans,” 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), and serves her country by providing ministry support as a member of a religious support team at Forward Operating Base Salerno, Afghanistan. Espeseth carries her patriotism pridefully while combining it with her passion for God. (U.S. Army Photo by Sgt. 1st Class Abram Pinnington, TF 3/101 PAO)

God rest ye, merry gentlemen; let nothing you dismay,
For Jesus Christ, our Saviour, was born on Christmas-day.

When Jesus Christ, our Saviour, was born on Christmas-day. «Read the rest of this article»

In the summer of 1986, I was invited to an Evangelistic Conference in Amsterdam, Holland sponsored by the Billy Graham Association. There was about 8,000 Evangelists from all over the world there. One of the things that stood out to me was the importance that was put on THE WORD OF GOD.
One of the affirmations we were asked to affirm was this, “We confess Jesus Christ as God, our Lord and Savior, who is revealed in the Bible, which is the infallible word of God.” «Read the rest of this article»

Some time back I rode down by the Cumberland River to see how high the water was after the rain that we had. Many times in the past years, I have seen Cumberland River rise so high that it’s even out of its banks and onto Riverside Drive. I have always been amazed at how much water that took, but the water always recedes.
As the river flows, it reminded me of what Jesus told His disciples, “Out of you shall flow rivers of living water.” This is found in John 7:38. That’s always made me wonder how strong my witness in the Lord has been in years past. Has the Living Water of Jesus Christ flowed out of me? «Read the rest of this article»

A Devotional By Brother Shepherd
Not to long ago I got a new cell phone which has a connecting ear piece and you can hear and talk with your hands free. These are great safety features but, as with all technology it has to be set up properly before it will work. I spent some time going over the instructions before I got the right connection and I am able to use it.
I was thinking about talking with God and how we have to have the right connection before that’s possible. I thought what connection do we need to be able to talk to God? The first one I came up with is: we have to believe in God. Secondly we can only go to God through Jesus Christ. He is our connection. «Read the rest of this article»
