"I think you ought to know, dear brothers, about the hard time we went through in Asia.   We were really crushed and overwhelmed, and feared we would never live through it.  We felt we were doomed to die and saw how powerless we were to help ourselves; but that was good, for then we put everything into the hands of God,who alone could save us, for He can even raise the dead.  And He did help us, and saved us from a terrible death; yes, and we expect him to do it again and again."
......Paul of Tarsus, PointMan  A.D. 65

 



Point Man ... What is it?

Every Vietnam Veteran knows what a 'pointman' is, but, for the benefit of the reader who does not know here is a quick explanation. It is a United States military term used during an army patrol, or infantry operation, for the 'point man' (in the Australian Army the term 'forward scout' is used) who walks several meters out in front of everyone else. His purpose is to serve as the eyes and ears for the unit following him through suspected enemy territory. He seeks out likely enemy ambush sites, booby traps and anything else that would endanger or entrap his trailing companions. Therefore, Point Man is designed to do the same today for all Veterans through the healing power of the Holy Spirit, the inerrant Word of God and the cleansing blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

It is a ministry run by Veterans for Veterans; that provides individual and group counseling, literature, seminars and conferences to help bring aid and comfort to their brothers in arms. Point Man has but one guarantee: if you turn your life over to the Lord Jesus Christ, you will find comfort and; a way to begin to heal and lessen the wounds of war. That does not mean to say that 'every thing in the garden will be rosy', or that all your problems will be solved and you will live happily ever after.... What it does mean is that you will no longer be alone to try to battle through the storms of life.

Ode To The Fallen

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,
We will remember them.  Lest we forget."
