AME SPOTLIGHT: EXEMPLARY SERVICE

Led by U.S. Army Active Duty Chaplain (Captain) Samuel D. Siebo of the 7th Episcopal District, the only AME Chaplain currently serving in Afghanistan, the Gospel Service at Camp Marmal has grown to exceed its designated chapel space, established a Wedesday evening Bible Study and a Friday evening prayer meeting to meet the spiritual needs of the troops, Department of Defense civilians and U.S. Contractors in his Area of Operation. The Gospel service under Chaplain Siebo’s leadership has established a Gospel Choir, Praise and Mime Dance teams.

Chaplain Siebo’s Gospel Service brought together over 200 Soldiers and civilians from across Camp Marmal International Community in a Grand Easter Gospel Musical Cantata and Worship Service, on Sunday, April 20, 2014. Because of the number of people, the Easter service could not be held at the chapel, instead the service was moved to the largest tent on the Forward Operating Base (FOB). The 2000 hours Gospel Service will now be held in the large tent due to the size of the congregation.

To God be the glory, great things he hath done!
