Carlene and Bob with Mary
What a blessed evening OS91 had with First Assembly Church of Deland, FL http://firstassemblydeland.com/ and Pastor Mike Modica! Thanks to a Divine Connection with Chaplain/Deputy Mike Dye of Volusia County Sheriff's Office and Florida Head of the Fellowship of Christian Police Officers (FCPO), OS91 was invited about one month ago to this, his home Church, where the FPCO Annual Conference was being held. It was at this time that we were introduced to his Pastor, Mike Modica and the rest is history!

Ed and Mary speak about OS91's mission and vision
First Assembly Deland is a very patriotic Church beginning with the Pastor Modica, who is a Veteran of the U.S. Army and whose son, Sam, is a Marine, deploying soon to Afghanistan. Before the Service, we were invited to join Pastor Mike in his Office where we shared prayer and a bit of fellowship. It was here we spotted a photo of his brave son (below).

Among the Responders we met were Pastor Mike Carroll also of First Assembly Deland who serves as Chaplain in Volusia County Sheriff's Office. Mary was honored to share dinner and speak at length with another Deputy of VCSO, former Military, during dinner.

After speaking, Pastor Mike handed Ed a check for OS91 which can make over 25,000 Psalm 91 cards. Thank you, Pastor, and all those at First Assembly, Deland, for your overwhelming generosity to us. We are so very grateful to you. Thank you so very much for your partnership with OS91 to help get Psalm 91 into the hands of Responders for their protection! We appreciate you! "Together we can do so much more than separately!"
