Bowe Bergdahl’s January Week of Action and Prayer: Still time to join!

  • Our January Week of Action & Prayer continues through 11:59 PM on Tuesday the 31st (BOWE TUESDAY). Please continue to invite your friends to join us.

    LINK TO the event page.

With permission, we are posting an excerpt from a letter that one of Bowe’s supporters sent to her Members of Congress. We were fortunate to have her share it with us in that we’re certain it exemplifies what many of us are feeling. A heartfelt correspondence such as this respectfully communicates to our elected officials that Bowe’s well-being is important to us on a personal level and that our interest in his situation will not be easily diverted:

“I believe neither you or I can understand or even imagine the loneliness, heartache and fear he endures everyday that he is kept a prisoner.

I don’t know how you can help. I don’t know if it’s possible for you to create action to bring Bowe home.

What I do know is that we miss him deeply and sincerely, but not hopelessly. I know that someone has the ability to bring him home safely and alive.

Please be a voice for Bowe. Be a voice for his family and friends. Please, be a voice for me and help bring him home.”

First ‘Week of Action & Prayer’ for Sgt Bowe Bergdahl of 2012: January 24th through the 31st

In case you missed it, below is a recent post from the Facebook page Waiting and Advocating for Sgt Bowe Bergdahl, US Army – POW.  The post explains about the January 24th through the 31st Week of Action & Prayer that’s been organized for Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl.

Hi Everybody!

We know that every person who reads this post would like nothing more than to have 2012 be the year that Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl is safely returned home to his family. Just visualizing this can stir one’s heart with profound emotion. Each and every one of you who has stepped up to support Bowe is doing something important, something that will have an impact beyond all of our expectations. Believe this friends, powerful things happen when people come together with compassionate hearts to give to others. We want to set the tone to 2012 by hitting the ground running in our efforts to support Bowe. From Jan 24th through the 31st, we’re joining together via Facebook for a Week of Action & Prayer for Bowe. This Week of Action and Prayer is being coordinated with the Congressional calendars for both the House and the Senate so it will occur while both are in session. America’s politicians MUST know that America will not forget Bowe Bergdahl. These politicians need to understand that we expect that they will help to further Bowe’s cause, no exceptions- not even in a year when they’re busy campaigning. You’ll find that this is an easy event to participate in and EVERYONE can help in some way. Here are some things you can do:

1) Show your support simply by joining the event- just click the “JOIN” button on the upper right hand side of the event page:      https://www.facebook.com/events/256605531054788/

2) Raise Awareness: ask your friends to participate by using the “INVITE FRIENDS” button that will appear in the upper right hand portion of the event page after you join the event. It’s possible you might very well introduce someone to Bowe for the first time just by doing this one small thing.

3) During the event week, use an image that mentions or features Bowe as your Facebook profile picture 4) Go to supportbowe.org and leave a message of support for Bowe & his family in the Guest Book @http://supportbowe.org/guest-book-bowe-bergdahl/

 5) Pray on your own, pray in a group, post your prayers on the event page (“For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”); Visualize Bowe’s rescue. Claim victory over the enemy that’s holding Bowe prisoner. Affirm your belief in miracles.

6) Tell your friends about the event, even if they aren’t Facebook users. The folks that aren’t on Facebook can also pray, write letters, & tell their friends about Bowe. 7) Contact your elected officials and tell them that your expectation of them is that they make certain that absolutely everything possible is being done to bring Bowe home.(They make good money to work for us and they need to understand that we expect them to earn it!) We have created a page that offers some guidence on how to contact our elected officials. Find links here:   http://supportbowe.org/2012/01/08/event-bowe-bergdahl-action-prayer/ 

The more people that we can gather together to support Bowe, the more our voices will be heard. The more people we get involved early in this year, the more influence we can have as the year progresses. People are sharing some really terrific ideas with us every week on how we can help Bowe but the success of many of these ideas depends on one thing: getting a large number people together who are on fire to help Bowe and his family and who are willing to do what they can to raise awareness. This is truly a grassroots effort and every single person has something valuable to offer in this action to support Bowe. This effort is nothing without each and every one of you.

Thank You again for standing strong together for Bowe. You are making a difference!

 

PLEASE JOIN OUR EVENT: Sgt Bowe Bergdahl, US Army (POW) Week of Action & Prayer – 1/24 through 1/31 2012

The January 2012 Week of Action and Prayer is being coordinated with the Congressional calendars for both the House and the Senate so it will occur while both are in session. America’s politicians must know that America will not forget Bowe Bergdahl.

Sergeant Bowe R. Bergdahl, United States Army (dob 28 March 1986) of Hailey, Idaho, was captured in Afghanistan in June of 2009 by a Taliban allied Afghan insurgent group called the Haqqani Network. As of 30 January, he will have been held captive by the enemies of America for 2 years and 7 months.

In remembrance of the June 2009 capture of Bowe Bergdahl, please contact your United States Congressional Delegation and tell them that obtaining the release of Sgt Bergdahl must be a priority. Remind them that America must not forget Bowe and that you expect the United States government to work tirelessly to bring him home.
