Pastor Gerry Khourie (showing Ps 91 card) of CFI introduces Ed
Christ Family International Church http://cfichurch.com/ of Port St. Lucie, FL, is Operation Safety 91's premiere Church partner. Both the Pastors, Gerry and Donnelyn Khourie and the Congregation have been outstanding supporters of OS91 for two years now. Yesterday, Veterans Day, we were privileged to spend time with this Church , not only speaking during their two Services, but also enjoying family time together afterwards at their "Harvest Celebration", an all out fun time fellowship/cook out on their campus at 6501 NW St. James Rd.
L to R: Navy Responder, her proud mother and sister
OS91 was able to set up a table again and offer an opportunity to our CFI partners to give a Christmas gift of Psalm 91 cards to Responders whom they would never know in this life. The Pastors and people responded so generously that OS91 will be making an order of between 25,000 to 50,000 more Psalm 91 cards with the monies donated. Card were made available to anyone who wanted them or any Responders in attendance. The young Navy Responder pictured above just flew in during the wee hours of the morning to be reunited with her mother and sister.
Marine dad with wife and son at Harvest Celebration
While in line for some good food, I met the young man on the left, Miguel, who was wearing a Marines shirt. He told me his dad was a Marine and took me out of line to meet him. What an honor! Then, he found the picture in his phone of his cousin's Jeep with PSALM 91 written on it! That was a "must have" photo for me. Miguel told me he was going to have that done on his vehicle as well. I couldn't wait to share this photo (below) with you on this blog!

Ed also spent time with a young Responder pictured above who just joined the U.S. Army. Isn't he a fine looking young man? We so appreciate him and all the hundreds of thousands of Responders: Firefighters, EMS, Law Enforcement, and Military, who risk their lives daily to protect, rescue and defend us! Thank you all so much!
