Can you help spread some crumbs?

I received this email, and just wanted to share the need, and the request, with you. What a simple but meaningful way to say thank you to those that literally risk their lives for us.

Campus Crusade for Christ's Military Ministry recently received the following note:
"I am a chaplain in the Army preparing to deploy with my infantry battalion of approximately 800 soldiers. I have no Bibles or resources as I have just taken over this battalion. They just returned from Iraq this past November and are already returning again ... Whatever you can do to help in resources would be greatly appreciated."

As this chaplain's note highlights, there remains a tremendous need for God's Word, especially as more troops deploy. We continue to receive requests for an average of 15,000 to 20,000 Rapid Deployment Kits per month--each one containing a pocket-sized New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs, a daily devotional and a booklet that clearly shares the Gospel. Learn how you can help place these Bible and devotional kits into the hands of our troops.

Thank you for your support and prayers for our troops.
