Afghanistan Pics

I don't think these pictures need much explanation. I'll just give you the captions that Nick sent with them. There are a lot, but I thought everyone would enjoy them!

For more info about Nick's deployment, check out these articles, written by a reporter who was embedded with Nick's FOB:
Please pray for Nick and his fellow soldiers in Afghanistan this week. With the national elections coming up, violence will certainly increase. Pray for safety, wisdom, and perseverance.
