Battle Update Brief: Arkansas
In combat, there are usually two times throughout the day where key leaders have briefings to discuss the significant activities, operations, and intelligence covering the previous 12 hours. These briefings—also known as BUBs (Battle Update Briefs)—provide information that leaders need to know in order to do their jobs more effectively in defeating the enemy. These briefs also provide opportunities for the units to report on successes from particular missions and operations. Here’s a report by Army Chaplain Jeremy Miller on what is happening with the Military Mission in the trench he’s in:
- A few months ago most chaplains in Arkansas had never heard of The Resurgence and the powerful biblical call that they have for not only men but people everywhere. Within weeks books started streaming to us,and many of our chaplains took the knowledge gained from books like Death by Love and were able to walk soldiers through the road to redemption from sin. In fact, the material got us all fired up for serving Jesus because it was such a great tool.
- We started our first Vintage Jesus study with huge success. Over 12 weeks we saw soldiers’ lives change when they put to death their false gods and surrendered to Jesus as their Lord.
- Booklets like Porn Again Christian and Pastor Dad do not stay on the shelf. Some days we have gone through a few hundred and had soldiers beg for more. In one case we had 4 soldiers reading aloud from the same book . . . sharpening each other.
