KOROR, Palau –
KOROR, Palau – U.S. Army Pacific’s Operations in Pacific Island Countries' Unit Ministry Team spent two months in Palau spreading a message of faith, love and unity with the Palauan people.
“We’ve done so much during our time here in Palau. It’s truly been a unique and rewarding experience,” said Chaplain (Maj.) Daniel Leiter, the deputy task force chaplain.
“We’ve met with key leaders of faith to discuss matters of religion, which led to several invitations to participate in ministry activities. We’ve spoken at church services, Sunday schools, and youth sports camps, prison chapel services, drug and alcohol abuse symposiums and site visits of religious importance. We were also able to meet with government leaders on matters of religion and, along with local faith leaders, provided encouragement to the president of Palau, Surangel Whipps Jr., the vice president, his cabinet, and the governors of Angaur State, Ngarchelong State, the chief of police and the chief public defender,” said Leiter.
