How You Can Help

Request constantly stream in to assist our troops deployed with neck cooling wraps, care packages or encouragement or helping them help others with humanitarian aid projects like shoes,clothing or school supplies for the children of the nations they are serving in. Military families need encouragement and assistance too. It may be mowing a yard, providing a baby-shower or birthday-in-a box or helping with a bill or crisis during a difficult time.

Whatever the needs are, we are here to stand in the gap....and we can't do it alone.
We are receiving more request than ever for assistance. Won't you help serve them as they serve us.

We want to thank you in advance for your financial support of this mission. On behalf of the soldiers and their families we want to also thank you for your continued support. May God bless you and yours.

You can also help us to support the mission by visiting us at Shepherd's Pasture, our Retreat and Conference Center. In addition to offering this wonderful place of retreat and rest to our military families, we are offering to the public a time to get away, enjoy some relaxation and support our efforts while you visit us. Plan that weekend out, family or group retreat. Your time of enjoyment is tax deductible and you are making a difference at the same time.
