Operation Bandana has provided 303,282 bandanas as of 3/1/2022         

Psalm 91 bandana testimony…

Mary recently received a testimony via email from a chaplain. Our ministry has been going strong since 2006 and growing every year. Despite the many heartfelt “thank you” notes over the years, when we read a testimony like the one in the attached email, it adds an extra measure of encouragement for the job we’re doing. Operation Bandanas is a ministry of¬†encouragement for all our sacrificing military members, but more importantly it strives to bring them to a closer personal relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.¬†Please read this testimony- this is what it’s all about.

Subject: It’s Still The Good News!

Dear Prayer Warriors,

I wanted to quickly share another good news story with you and ask that you pray for the individual Soldier that I will be referring to. Obviously I am not at liberty to pass along a name to you, but I am certain our great God in heaven will know exactly who you will be referring to.

I was sitting in my office this morning when one of our Soldiers walked in and started looking at our Bibles on the shelf and I asked ifl could assist him in any way. He then turned to me and asked if I had a minute to talk. So I quickly invited him into my office and once we took a seat he began to express to me that nothing was physically wrong with him as it related to deployment, but that he had been really thinking about the spiritual side of things as of late. And what got his attention yesterday was when my Chaplain Assistant handed him a box of goodies and told him that this box was for him. But unbeknownst to my Chaplain Assistant, inside of that box was a muiIticam (what our deployment uniforms are made out of) bandanna with Psalm 91 printed on it. He said that when he read Psalm 91 on that bandanna that he knew something was missing and that he needed to talk with someone. It was at that moment that I began to share with him how I believed God was speaking into his life, which ultimately led to me sharing the Gospel with this Soldier. It was such a great joy for me to share with him how Jesus had changed my life and how He could change his life as well.

He eventually took one of our military Bibles that we have and told me that he would read through the gospel of John like I had asked him to do. He didn’t make a profession of faith before he left my office, but I truly believe God is working in his heart and I ask that you would join with me in praying for this Soldier. Pray that he would realize his need for Jesus as he reads through the gospel of John. I may not ever see the fruit of my efforts today, but I do believe a seed was planted in this young man’s heart and I am praying that seed will come to fruition sooner rather than later. Thanks for joining with me in praying for this Soldier. Yes, it is still the goodnews!

For God & Country,

Daniel Garnett
