Meet Christina & Alvin
I had the opportunity to meet Christina when we were at the Hospitality House in September. She and Alvin had been married for a few weeks and he was getting ready to deploy for Iraq. We talked together and prayed together about not only her being a new wife, but a new military wife. After we left Ft Hood in November she and I stayed in touch on Facebook. When we arrived at the Hospitality House a few weeks ago, she met me at the door with huge hugs. Christina is smart, funny, brave, and sometimes scared. She struggles with the fear that she could lose the husband that she hasn't even gotten to enjoy yet. He left after they had been married for 7 weeks. Christina is also looking for a job and wants to find a job working with children. Christina has a heart for the Lord, and is growing and maturing in her walk with Him. Pray that she will stay encouraged and not let discouragement creep in on her heart.She does get to send Alvin care packages, and gets to talk to him often, which is a huge blessing. Pray that their conversations will be fruitful as they discuss plans for their future, finances, safety, and spiritual issues. Pray that Christina can be a continued encouragement to her husband, and that her job hunting will be successful.
