Marines Always Keep Their Promises

Marine Lance Cpl. Aaron W. Simons of Modesto, California, died April 24th at the age of 20 old while serving his country.

Marine Lance Cpl. Aaron W. Simons of Modesto, California,died April 24th at the age of 20 old while serving his country.

Simons died while conducting combat operations against enemy forces in Al Anbar province, Iraq. He was assigned to 1st Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force, Twenty-nine Palms, California.

In May of this year I wrote about Marine Aaron W. Simons'deathand the heart wrenching effect it had as Mother's Day was drawing near. We recently learned from the Simons family of avery important life saving promise that Aaron made beforehe died.

Could it be possible that the providence of a loving, Almighty God is falling into place as this ongoing true life story unfolds concerning Aaron's promise? The answer is yes.

While Aaron Simonswas stationed in Iraq he heard about a littlegirl who helped the troops speak the Iraqi language. Aaron was extremelydedicated to the mission.

The Iraqi people wereof great interest and passion to Aaron. He longed to talk with each and everyonethathe felt Godsent his way. Working with the Iraqipeople on a personal level was very important to this outstandinghero. Loving other people camevery easy to this outgoing, charming,and vibrantyoung Marine.

Winning the hearts and minds of the good Iraqi people was not hard forSimons. His heartoverflowedwith love for his Savior, Jesus Christ. Aaron was the genuine article who reflected?agreat and faithful servant."

When Aaron met the little Iraqi girl, he was over taken by her unfortunate plight of illness. Many children of Iraq suffer from a parasite found in Iraqi soil. The parasite enters the bodies through the feet and can attack the kidney, liver, and other organs of smallchildren.Sandals and vitamins can help protect children from the parasite.

Unfortunately for little twelve year old Hamade Hadeal,thedangerous parasite had already done its damage. This sweet precocious child had already fallen victim. Her small frail body is failing.

Marine Aaron Simonstold littleHamade that if it took every penny he made as a soldier,she wouldreceive thevery best ofcare. He longed for the day that she would no longer be sick.Somehow, Aaron'spromise will be kept.

I personally believe inmiracles. Many are recordedthroughout God's Old andNew Testament.

God's workings come from many different directions. "The Great I Am" can move and cause miracles to happenthrough the hands and actions of different people.

Physicians, with proper procedures andmedications, can be a part of the Almighty'sperfect plan.People from all over the worldare working together tofulfill God's ordained plan forHamade.

Since late April, the Simons family, with the help of Aaron's friends in Iraq,are working 24/7 to keep hope alive for the little girl. Roadblocks will not deter thesepeople chosen by God to makeAaron's promise come true for a needy and worthy little girl.

WhileIraqi doctors in Baghdad refused to treat Hamade, others are pushing through and ignoring the odds against her recovery. God bless America. From her very beginnings this country embraced their Judeo-Christian beliefsthat choose life. People who serve a living Lordsimply won't give up the fight to saveher.

Miracles are happening.An Indian man offered$5,000 towards the cost of having a leading specialistin his home country treat Hamade.

As one who knows her heavenly Father,I am makinga personal plea. Let's allpray for Hamade. This is your opportunity to be part of God's miracle.

In God?s eyes, "all things are possible" tosupply allour needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus, including aMarine's promise.
