LETTERS TO WAR

On April 8th IKONers are invited to the IKON room at The People's Church to assemble care packages that will be sent to U.S. Soldiers in Iraq who are not receiving mail from anyone back home. These soldiers are possibly lonely, surely would like some good old saturate fat from a U.S. grocery store and may just like to know someone cares about them. We're aiming to meet all those needs together. One of our IKONers has a brother stationed in Iraq who alerted us to this need and will be helping us get the packages to the right people the right way. Again, April 8th, 5:30PM in the IKON room. E-mail Katye to reserve a spot for yourself and to find out what supplies we need if you'd like to make a donation to this cause.

This is one of the many "GO" opportunities provided for folks at IKON (Thanks to Katye, our volunteer Go Coordinator this semester for bringing us this opportunity.) IKON is a twenty-something community led by me and Brian Seay meeting at The People's Church in Franklin, TN every Tuesday at 8PM. Our goal is to represent God on earth by learning, going, giving, praying and just being together in community. Visit us on-line at IKONCOMMUNITY.COM or call 615.794.2812 for more info.

This is a great ministry. A friend of mine did something similar when her husband was stationed in Iraq. She has made many lifetime friends and touched many lives. Don't just stop at food and supplies. These people enjoy personal letters as well, even if it is just to say hi.
