For the first time in Morale Boosters history, we were invited to have a table at the Special Ops Group (SOG) Weapons Expo. It was an honor to be the first Christian ministry EVER to be invited to this event. This was due to the trust we'd been able to build with their Morale, Welfare and Recreation Officer. For 3 days, we encouraged and interacted with the toughest and bravest of the Border Patrol headquartered on Fort Bliss outside El Paso.
We distributed hundreds of thank you cards, dozens of bibles and neck coolers, treats, and custom printed pen/flashlights. The gifts and cards were well received. What a privilege to serve and encourage these heroes!
To top off the week, we were invited as the ONLY non-family civilians to attend a SOG graduation, where we handed out Thank You packages to all 19 graduates. Quite a memorable time!
