My Fortress, My Stronghold, My Shield, My Deliverer

Tomorrow I depart for Afghanistan.  This is my third deployment, so the Jailer family knows how to do this by now.  Still, there's never a great time to be gone, and this time I will miss Jailer Jr.'s high school graduation and departure for college.  I greatly covet your prayers for the success of our mission, the safety of our personnel, and the protection of my family in my absence.

If time, security and bandwidth permit, I hope to find occasion to blog while I'm there.  Otherwise, dear readers, I'll catch up you in September.

I have set the Lord always before me;
    because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. 

                         -- Psalm 16:8


  1. My prayers are with you and your family! Thank you for carrying that cross! God bless you and keep you safe!

  2. As always, we'll pray for you, though I confess it will be with special urgency.
