I spoke with my friend Erica this week and she told me she's going to be deployed to Iraq in a few weeks. She is a single mom with a 2 year old and she's going to be away from her daughter for about a year. Although her daughter will be staying with her grandparents, it will be hard for her to understand why her mommy is leaving for so long. Please pray for Erica's safety during her deployment and for Gwen's well-being while her mom is away. Thanks!
