Joey’s Story | Memorial Day 2023

/ Stories

As we honor the sacrifice of those who have given their lives to serve our nation on Memorial Day, we remember Joey. Growing up, Joey heard about the good news of Jesus from his parents. He was also a member of the 3/5 Battalion adopted by Mariners at Camp Pendleton, where he was brought into the care of our church family.

The night before Joey flew out to his area of operation in Afghanistan, he sent a text to his dad telling him that he was reading his Bible every day, talking with God, and that he had a relationship with Him. 10 days later, his parents received the news that Joey had passed. Through the unimaginable pain of losing a child, Joey’s parents leaned on God, knowing that their son’s eternal life was secure with Him in Heaven.

Watch and see how God revealed Himself to Joey and drew near to his parents in a miraculous way.
