Dear Operation Barnabas Congregations/Chapters,

The January issue of Warning Order: Operation Barnabas features many great resources, including:

  • Opening devotion and prayer — Time is a resource that is important both in daily life and in the military. Scripture is also rich in references to “time” as a context for God’s plan of salvation. It is God’s gift to His people to use wisely for the welfare of others and to His glory.
  • “Adopt-a-Chap” — This program provides an opportunity for congregations to directly connect with, or “adopt,” our Synod’s armed forces chaplains, including active, Reserve and those serving in VA hospitals. The program links congregations with chaplains to promote mutual support and growth.
  • Fallen Heroes Report
    —Sgt. Nathan G. Irish of Billings, Mont., died Oct. 27, 2019, in Iraq.
    —Chief Warrant Officer 2 Kirk Fuchigami Jr. of Keaau, Hawaii, died Nov. 20, 2019, in Afghanistan.
    —Chief Warrant Officer 2 David Knadle of Tarrant, Texas, died Nov. 20, 2019, in Afghanistan.
  • Events and resources for service members, veterans and families.
