Prayer Team

It is said that "Behind every successful man is a wife." Well, behind every successful ministry is a "Prayer Warrior".

If you would like to commit to praying for Vets With A Mission, Chuck and Joette, the Vietnamese people and for VWAM's humanitarian programs and projects; and you are ready to "Pray the price" so that VWAM doesn't have to "Pay the price," then send a request to be added to the VWAM Prayer Team.

Send an email to VWAM's Prayer Coordinator, Dr. James L. Simmons, D.of Min, at either or .

Also, if you would like to have a copy of Brother Jim's daily devotional, "This is the Day: A Daily Devotional," make sure you ask him about that!
