By Alex Sibley

On Aug. 30, the First Baptist Church of Bossier City, La., hosted “Honor our Heroes Sunday,” a special day devoted to doing just that: blessing the first responders and military servicemen in and around Bossier City. The church formally invited all policemen, firemen and paramedics from the city, as well as persons in active military service, particularly those stationed at nearby Barksdale Air Force Base. Hundreds accepted the invitation, and roughly 5,000 people attended the church’s two worship services that day, which featured a Gospel presentation and a live interview with Taya Kyle, wife of U.S. Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle. In response to these ministry efforts, 53 people prayed to receive Christ.
