When I wrote Flowers from Afghanistan, characters like Gul Hadi and Bashir were very real to me. They represented Afghans who wanted peace. Likewise, the contractors and military who made up my characters were there to do a job they believed in. My husband became friends with the young men he trained as police officers while in Afghanistan. It breaks my heart to see what is happening over there now. Samaritan’s Purse is a trusted and reliable organization. I’m asking that my readers help support Samaritan’s Purse with their mission.
SAMARITAN’S PURSE IS ASSESSING NEEDS TO DETERMINE HOW THEIR RESPONSE TEAM CAN BEST SERVE FAMILIES DESPERATE FOR HOPE.
“To watch this hurts,” said Edward Graham, Franklin Graham’s youngest son who works with Samaritan’s Purse and served in six combat deployments within special operations forces in Afghanistan. “I spent years there and lost many friends. There are many Afghan people that I love. This is a manmade disaster and there isn’t a person or an organization that can fix this. Only God can deliver us from this crisis.”
Donations from my site have closed and 100% of funds received have been sent to Samaritan’s Purse.
Thank you for your contributions. Please continue to pray for Afghanistan and our military families who have sacrificed so much.
I know that ultimately Jesus is the only solution in this world. This is my prayer for you; “so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled to all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:17-19 NASB
I enjoyed the book and thought of it when the crisis in Afghanistan occurred. What a fine thing to do, Suzy. People can read a good book and help someone at the same time.
Thank you for your kind comment and thoughts.❤️
