January 31, 2013 Volume 2 Issue 1
This is the CODE 7 Connection newsletter. Thank you again for your prayers, support, and contributions. CODE 7 is one month and is moving forward by your support and participation.
A special thank you to those who put in the extra time to get things started. The detail you have provided through artistic work, technical expertise setting up the email, website planning, and seemingly unending script editing have all helped immensely. I thank you for your part in the refining work of CODE 7. Your honest opinions and sound advice are always welcome.
January provided an opportunity to spend quality time with a few officers. One of those officers was injured while on duty at the close of December and was hospitalized nearly two weeks with a broken leg. I was able to visit and pray for him frequently and even helped hang New Year’s banners in his 4th floor hospital room. He is home now but still needs prayer for a speedy recovery and successful physical therapy for his horrible bone break.
CODE 7 provided its first squad meal January 3rd for the swing shifts (30 officers). It was a full meal from one of our CODE 7 lunch sponsors, Chick-fil-A. The officers and dispatchers thoroughly enjoyed the nourishment.
This CODE 7 Connection unveils the first in a series of monthly stories I am writing named “Officer Alpha.” I am using a letter/word from the police phonetic alphabet in place of the officer’s name as I share true experiences of law enforcement personnel. This way we can say “the names have been changed to protect the innocent.” I hope you enjoy this month’s story of Officer Adam.
I’m very blessed you have an interest in those who serve our community through law enforcement, and I am blessed to have you on the ministry team through your prayerful and financial participation. You are making a difference in the lives of others.
It’s official! CODE 7 has received the necessary documentation and is now able to receive tax-deductible financial support directly.
Blessings, Wes Anderson
