Updates from Grace Brethren Military Chaplains

May 31, 2007 | Brethren Digital Archive, Eagle Commission

Recent news about our Grace Brethren military chaplains comes from the Eagle Commission.

Army Chaplain Billy Graham, and his wife, Robyn, and their three children, Joy, Katie, and Christopher, are adjusting to life in Korea. Pray for them as they get used to life in a different country. They are also facing another move to a different location in Korea this summer.

Army Chaplain Mark Penfold has been promoted to Lieutenant Colonel at Fort Eustis, Va. He and his wife, Robin, also anticipate a move to Fort Hood, Texas, this summer.

Elizabeth Schaefer, wife of Army Chaplain James Schaefer, recently received good news. Two years ago, she had surgery for thyroid cancer. Recently, the results of a body scan showed no evidence of cancer.

The Eagle Commission serves as a strategic link between the people of the Grace Brethren churches and Grace Brethren military chaplains around the world. It provides a means to express support for the chaplains and their ministries and to provide their latest news and prayer requests.

Continue to remember the chaplains in prayer as they minister to the courageous men and women who serve in the Army, Navy, and Air Force.
