Faith, Love & Hope Youth Camp

And if it seems evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that weere on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: "but, as for me and my house we shall serve the LORD." Joshua 25:14

THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A REASON WHY YOU MEET PEOPLE. EITHER YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE OR YOU’RE THE ONE THAT WILL CHANGE THEIRS.

Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.

― Franz Kafka

Black History Month 2015 Final

The 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion was the only all-black Women’s Army Corps unit to serve overseas in World War II. The unit kept mail flowing to the nearly seven million Soldiers in the European Theater of Operations.

The women of the 6888th survived two brushes with the German military. First, German U-boats forced the unit’s convoy to reroute during its voyage across the Atlantic. Then, after arriving in England, a V1 rocket, or Buzz Bomb, came roaring into the area. No one was hurt during the attacks.

When the women arrived in Birmingham, England, they found warehouses crammed from floor to ceiling with mail that hadn’t moved in about a year or two. To deal with the volume of the mail, they worked seven days a week in eight-hour rotating shifts.

They were given six months to break the logjam; the 6888th did it in three.
