SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — Soldiers and officers shared breakfast and fellowship during 45th Sustainment Brigade, 8th Theater Sust. Command’s spring prayer breakfast, May 18, at the K Quad dining facility, here.

Chaplain (Col.) David Neetz, command chaplain, 8th TSC, was the guest speaker for the event, delivering a sermon focused on the importance of prayer.

“The prayer breakfast provides Soldiers and leaders the chance to spiritually reflect and to have a moment of relaxation,” said Sgt. Jaimey Swafford, chaplain’s assistant, 524th Combat Sust. Support Battalion, 45th Sust. Bde. “This, in turn, builds spiritual resiliency and sustainment.”

A Hope Chapel praise team provided musical entertainment during the event, performing a number of contemporary Christian songs and time-honored hymns, such as “Amazing Grace.”

“Our brigade is absolutely blessed by having the opportunity to have such a dynamic prayer breakfast,” Swafford said. “The Hope Chapel praise team adds so much spiritual energy.”

Prayer breakfasts and other chaplain-sponsored events provide Soldiers with a chance to maintain and strengthen their spiritual fitness, as well as meet other Soldiers who share their faith.

Events also help increase unit cohesion and readiness and provide Soldiers with a wider support structure.
