“Jesus is my whole life, my whole mission, my everything,” says Heather Kibler, military wife, mother, and veteran. “I want to share the Word as much as I can with as many people as I can.”
She’s channeled that passion into volunteering for Stonecroft’s outreach on the F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Stonecroft events happen on base every other month and new faces appear at each event. Heather says, “A lot of women I know personally are not saved and don’t have that relationship with Jesus, but they come. … They’re looking for a connection. … God is using the Stonecroft ministry here to provide that for women on this base.”
Heather says it can be hard for military women to relate to one another, since each base blends people from different regions, cultures and countries. She says, “Sometimes you feel isolated. You feel like no one really understands you.”
God gave Stonecroft volunteers an amazing connection with their peers at their recent Detox outreach. The Detox team expected more than 50 women to attend, but only about 20 came. The team’s disappointment turned to gratitude: the lower attendance made the Mind, Body, and Spirit breakout sessions just the right size. “It was just a total God thing,” says Heather.
Heather plans to continue the Detox discussion during future Stonecroft events. “I want to try and reiterate that … we need to take those few moments to just be by ourselves, and focus on us, and focus on God.”
Heather has new challenges ahead. Her husband, Stephen, will soon deploy to the Middle East and Heather is expecting their third child. She says, “Just knowing that he is in God’s hands, and we are in God’s hands, is very reassuring. …”[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
