As some of you knew, another opportunity came up about two months ago for me to head back to Iraq, and I applied for it. I found out a couple of days ago that we won the contract and received my deployment date yesterday. I'll be leaving DC on the 13th of July to head to Ft. Benning for a week and then start the journey to Iraq around the 20th.
I'll be doing pretty much the same thing I did last time which like last time I can't say much about. I'm planning on being there for a year, but as I found out all too well, you never know for sure with contracts.
I'm really looking forward to seeing how things have changed since last time. From my last time, I know how little concerning the progress the MSM really shows, so I have no doubt it will be the same this time. I'll definitely do my best to highlight what I'm allowed to share once I'm there. Unfortunately that is one of the problems is that so much is classified that it makes it tough sometimes to get the good news out.
It will definitely be tough leaving with Mimi in South Africa and knowing she will get back and I won't be here, but we both have a peace about it and know that this is where God is leading both of us at this moment. Please keep us both in your prayers as long distance is never fun!
