I want to say before I post this link, that Chad is ok. I talked to him on the phone this morning and the link about the missing soldiers, this happened last night. Chad's doing good. He just got back. He had to make a run up to another camp. This camp has 2 pools, one indoor and one outdoor. It has Pizza Hut, Subway, Baskin Robbins, and Popeyes, I believe there's also BK. This time around he said he treated himself to a footlong sub, and they only charge them $2.99! I already like Subway in general for their food (well in the states, over here in Germany not so impressed with some of the meat) anyways....I am just really happy with this company because it's obvious they're not making a profit when they only charge 2.99 for a foot long sub! I know Chad, he loaded up with veggies too on his sandwich. So...go Subway! :) It'd be nice if they had a few more luxuries where he's at, but I don't see that happening. It's a crazy area he's in. His base camp is located in the most dangerous city in Iraq currently. They're not the only camp in this city. They're camp's gotten about 1500 new soldiers though. I don't think they have internet hooked up in his room yet, if so he's not online right now! He did get online this morning after we got cut off on the phone, but I wasn't signed on :(
He sounded good though. I could hear a smile in his voice and that always makes me happy. He talked to the boys. Our little one is really into saying "I love Daddy" "I love cookie monster" (hey it's cute!) but he talks "to" Daddy a lot when he see's his picture!
Ok, so here's the article. I ask that you pray for the soldier who's been missing since April 2005, PFC (Keith) Matt Maupin, from Ohio. He's actually from a town not far from where Chad's family lives. Pray for the soldier who was murdered last night, when the other 2 soldiers were taken. Lets pray these soldiers are still alive, not being torchered and are able to either 1 escape or 2 be rescued (alive).
