Today we have with greater earnest began revisiting families who will have deployed family members in the near future. At the same time we are trying to set up a women's support group where wives of deployed servicemen will be able to come together for mutual support, friendship and simply to do something fun together. So this afternoon we met one sister whose husband is currently TDY in preparation for deployment. Then we met with a sister whose husband just returned from a lengthy TDY and then we met with a family who will be moving soon. We still are trying to meet with families who need encouraging, a little fellowship and some friendship. At this point in time we see a shift in the emphasis of our nightly visits. We will be moving toward helping the brethren prepare spiritually for deployment and setting up an organization where sisters can go for female support and friendship.
