We, as well as the staff shed many tears as we worked together to bring hope and supplies to “the least of these” that God had placed us in the midst of. It was not unusual to see a tuff former Marine with tears in his eyes holding one of these children in his arms. All of us were brought to a new measure of meekness and humility. In the midst of all this suffering and emotional baggage the moniker for Vets With A Mission was birthed.
2 Cor. 5: 18 – “All this is from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.”
What God began in us in those early years of VWAM has not faded nor tarnished in our hearts. It is still the main “THING” of VWAM. It is our heart’s desire to see the people of this country know that former enemies can come together in forgiveness and reconciliation to each other. Our purpose and our prayer is that they can come to the understanding that we can be reconciled not only to former enemies but to our God and Savior Jesus Christ.
We strive to accomplish this through the compassionate, humanitarian efforts of people who desire to rise above the tried political arguments and unnecessary apologetics concerning our involvement in the war.
