For the past two and a half years, Vanessa Huckfeldt has served NATO deployed troops, in the U.S. military store, in Kosovo, Bosnia, Bulgaria and Romania. This time overseas has brought her family into a deeper understanding of what military families experience during times of deployment.
They have served military families right where they live. Now, they have firsthand experience of what military families sacrifice on the front lines to keep our nation free.
"I feel like every bit of knowledge and experience that the Lord has given to me through the years was used to minister to the deployed American and NATO foreign soldiers, as well as deeply impacting the locals who work in the camps," Vanessa writes. She continues, "I can't find the words to express how grateful we are for those who partner with us in ministry. We are the feet, but YOU are the hands that make it possible for us to reach this unique mission of military families. I wish I could look each of you in the eye and hug your neck and say thank you. With tears in my eyes as I write this letter, I pray that the Lord richly blesses each of you because you have been such a blessing to us. Thank you for being an active part of the body of Christ and making an eternal investment. We love you!"
