The Ugly Truth

Veterans are Struggling...

Veterans of the United States military are facing trauma, addiction, physical health issues, and pain in physical, chemical, and emotional ways. While programs and clinics exist to help manage their symptoms, they often times prove to be bandaids on a much more serious wound – hopelessness.

Trapped in Addiction

Studies show that about 1 in every 10 veterans returning from active duty have a problem with abusing alcohol and other recreational or prescription drugs. In fact, most war veterans tend to binge drink as a way of coping with their unresolved trauma and health issues.

Struggling to Rest

Most, if not all veterans have experienced or are currently dealing with sleep issues. They are struggling to fall asleep, wake up frequently in the night, have vivid nightmares and night terrors, and sleep poorly overall. This leads to all kinds of mental and physical health problems when left unchecked.

Feeling Lost

After their return home, most soldiers experience a lack of purpose and struggle to return to civilian life. This emotional and spiritual wilderness is what leads to addictions, increases in mental health problems, relational issues, and more.

Lack of Community

The loneliness and isolation that veterans feel after returning home plays a monumental role in both their mental and physical health. The sudden loss of community that their fellow service men and women provided them during Active Duty is tied to high levels of depression, severe anxiety, and thoughts of committing suicide.

BUT NOW YOU CAN HELP

Support a Veteran

For every $50 donated to Matthew 10 International’s “Support a Veteran” fund, military men and women across the country and on global mission will receive a one-month supply of Balance by Revvl Health™, a Passion Translation Bible, and become connected with a community of other veterans being discipled by a partner of Matthew 10, named David Wood. With these tools, we have seen veterans from all branches experience the hope, the healing, and the purpose that comes with being a child of the Living God.

1. Restore Balance

The all-natural and powerful benefits of adaptogenic herbs help bring the body to rest after traumatic or prolonged periods of stress. This supplement– Balance by Revvl Health™ – has shown that it not only reduces the negative symptoms of traumatic and chronic stress, but that it restores health back to the vital sleep and stress pathways of the body.

2. Read the Bible

Reading the word of God is the beginning of understanding our newfound identities in Christ – but for some, this identity is yet to be discovered. Each veteran in this program receives a copy of the Bible in The Passion Translation. This translation provides a down-to-earth, refreshing perspective on the word of God for Veterans who have not heard the Good News.

3. Rejoin the Brotherhood

In the book of Acts, there is a community of those baptized by the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus who gather around for prayer, meals, fellowship, and apostolic teaching. They share whatever they have to meet one another’s needs and collectively experience the signs and wonders of God. This is the family that we provide to veterans through the M10 community.

"I AM RESTORED."

David Wood is a former Marine who was able to overcome addiction and find his God-given purpose through the power of the Gospel and the adaptogenic herbs found in Balance by Revvl Health™.  We are honored to know and support David and the community of veterans that we call “family.”
