Community Outreach

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in. I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.
Then the righteous will answer him, "Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or need clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?"
The King will reply, "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."
-Matthew 25:35-40-

We are blessed and privileged to have Phil Nelson on staff at Awake Ministries. The Lord has put an abundance of anointing on him and he serves our ministry well with it.My Story Monday: Portrait Edition1st Lt. Philip L. NelsonStaff ChaplainUnited States Air Force 1st Lt. Philip L. Nelson, a staff chaplain assigned to the 181st Intelligence Wing, joined the Indiana Air National Guard to continue his family’s proud heritage of faithful military service since World War I.“I have always wanted to be part of defending the nation, the constitution, and the freedoms unique to America,” said Nelson.Nelson enlisted in 2017 as a search and extraction medic for the Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive Enhanced Response Force Packages (CERFP).“As a medic, I enjoyed training alongside the CERFP and the Israeli Defense Forces during the United Front Exercise learning urban search and rescue,” said Nelson.After serving a few years in the CERFP, Nelson knew it was time for a career change, so he joined the Chaplain Corps.“The role of a chaplain can be broken in to two categories: providing spiritual care and advising leadership,” said Nelson. “What that looks like at the 181st is providing ‘deployed devotions’ for our service members, offering counseling and crisis intervention, helping coordinate Strong Bonds training, embedding with units for annual training, and much more.”Nelson has had many highlights throughout his career.“One of the highlights of my career has been serving as a chaplain for the COVID mission,” said Nelson. “I have a passion for developing creative solutions to overcome mission challenges and being with our Airmen during seasons of joy and sadness, loneliness and camaraderie.”Nelson then explained why he thought other people would benefit from joining the ANG.“You will be hard pressed to find any job with comparable opportunities or benefits,” said Nelson. “It will require sacrifice – a sacrifice that very few are provided the opportunity to make – but it is one worth making.”#KnowYourMil Indiana Guardsman ...
