National Association of American Veterans (NAAV, Inc.) April~ May~ & ~ June Testimonial


Pouring Out a Blessing
~Not a Month Too Soon~

Within the recently past three-months, the National Association of American Veterans (NAAV), Inc. along with its volunteers, sponsors, and supports has taken every month as it came. Dedicated to fulfilling its mission to serve, provide, and care for those who gave much—at times, more than any of us would be asked or expected to do in our lifetimes. NAAV’s focus on American Veterans and their family members, goes without saying. During April, May, and June, NAAV hung in there along with the changing seasons, weather, and temperatures, because our eyes, ears, and hearts remain open to support as necessary and by faith.

Here are a few pours, but not all, testimonial remnants of the past three months:

June Testimonials… “June could not have come too soon.” It seems the months are here today and gone tomorrow. This past June was one of those kind of month’s that crept in and disappeared in a flash, but not before NAAV could leave its mark on the lives of our Veteran’s and family members. When the calls came in, NAAV was standing ready to support and below are a few of the testaments from those who were able to receive the fruit of asking, seeking, and knocking:
NAAV received a telephone call on Friday, June 18, 2021 from a homeless
VA with 100 percent disabled Veteran status. He was requesting emergency assistance for him and his family of 6 for help with Hotel stay, food, and assistance with the VA for permanent housing.

NAAV, Inc. with the help of the LORD and many prayers on their behalf
was able to provide shelter at the hotel and food the same day.

six (6).  Your support is greatly appreciated.”

Thus, we close this testimonial quarter out with one last message sent to NAAV in June as great things continue happen when we all serve and support our Nations Veterans and their family members…

“Nothing is a match for God’s grace.  Whatever you are facing today, God’s grace is greater.  Whatever you will face tomorrow, God’s grace is still greater!”

Dennis Washington, U.S. Army Veteran writes:
“During my days of homelessness, I’ve come to know Jesus as my Lord,
Savior, and friend.  I am very thankful to my Lord God and NAAV over the
past months for their prayers and support.  I thank NAAV for providing
emergency assistance, guidance and direction they shares through God’s
amazing love and grace.  Thanks to NAAV and their prayer warriors for
praying for me and my recovery from cancer.  On my Christian journey,
while I travel the road of challenges and problems, I’ve learned that
there’s no match for God’s grace and those He’s sent my way to provide help
and encouragement.”  Thank you LORD and thank you NAAV!
