My awesome Dad is currently travelling to Afghanistan for a tour of duty as the Chaplain for the Royal Marines.

He’s going to be away for 6 months, and this would be hard enough for us if we weren’t all coping with Andy’s chemo, but as it stands it’s looking like a pretty tough time. I am thankful though that he’s retiring when he gets back and that at least we’re all now old enough to look after Mom while he’s away.

Please pray for my family – especially for Mama and for my brother, sisters, and Granny. For comfort and strength, even for silly little things, like being in / hearing the phone when he rings.

And of course, pray for Dad. That God would be with him as he does the sometimes impossible job of looking after the troops as they face conflict and death, for protection and a safe return.

I’m going to busy myself with preparing Dad’s first parcel that I’ll send out next week – a knitted helmet liner for nights out and about, bourbon biscuits and proper coffee. We’ll be taking bets on how long it takes to get there!!
