Welcome this week’s very special guest, Anne Purcell! Anne’s husband, Colonel Ben Purcell, served in the Korean War and in 1967, he was sent to Vietnam. While he was in Vietnam, Colonel Purcell was captured and held prisoner until 1973, when he was released.
From the loss of a child, to 5 years of imprisonment with no communication with one another, Ben & Anne Purcell embody what it means to be bold and conquer.
Colonel Purcell was all around an incredible human being; I had the privilege of knowing the Purcell family my whole life. Sadly Ben passed away April of last year at 85 years old but we are extremely honored and privileged to have his wife Anne Purcell here with us today to tell us their story!
BE IN THE WORD (this week’s verses):
Don’t be anxious about things; instead, pray. Pray about everything. He longs to hear your requests,so talk to God about your needs and be thankful for what has come. And know that the peace of God (a peace that is beyond any and all of our human understanding) will stand watch over your hearts and minds in Jesus, the Anointed One. (Philippians 4:6-7)
