Dear friends, I would love your prayers as we embark on another deployment.
We have the rest of this week with Michael – as he’ll be leaving for a 2 week pre-deployment training on Sunday – and then we’ll only have approximately one week with him when he returns before he leaves for 6 months.
If you are in deployment mode (preparing for or enduring), I would love to know so I can pray for you. Leave a comment on this post and I’ll be sure to add you to my prayer list.
You might also be interested in the series I wrote during our last deployment, it’s called Preparing for Deployment, but has a variety of topics, including helping children cope during the separation.
I’ll be revisiting the series while Michael is away and updating it a bit with some new tips and tricks I’ve learned and possibly a “reintegration” post for post-deployment struggles.
I’m also interested in any tips or tricks that have helped your family during these long separations – or any questions you might like me to try to answer. If you don’t see it listed in my series, please leave a comment with the information. I’d love to try them out and also add them to my series posts!
