I took this picture as I entered Ground Zero at the World Trade Center back in 2001. I will never forget the smell, feel and atmosphere of the pile. This building showed the gaping hole in the front wall as debris fell from the twin towers.
Working as a chaplain in the recovery of remains left an impression on my heart that will follow me throughout my life. This was an event that people all around the world saw on television and remember even today. We go nowhere in the world that people cannot comment on this moment in time.
Today I am walking in another "Ground Zero" on the other side of the world. I am not able to give you specifics, names, or places because of the spiritual battle that is going on. But the Lord is walking with me during this time.
I wanted to ask you to pray as this week begins that I will faithfully represent our Lord and be the servant that He desires that all of us will be. I feel the same way as I did in 2001. I knew that where I walked in New York was a pivotal place and moment in history. Buildings were shattered along with lives, minds and hearts.
I am sure that you can understand the necessity for confidentiality. Please pray for God's guidance, wisdom and courage as I walk among the lives of so many who are directly in the heat of battle. Thank you.
