"I want to thank all the wonderful hearts that blessed our base in Jalabad, Afghanistan. We received a wonderful gift of CDs to help our small Catholic community here, filled with inspirational Catholic doctrine. The military has cut down the number of priests in Afghanistan, and as a result we are only able to celebrate the Holy Mass about once a month. Your gift truly warmed the hearts of our small community, and our 'Liturgy of the Word' was proclaimed in the loudest voice I have ever heard. Your generous gift brought joy to all of us. Thank you."

"Your ministry has been very therapeutic: one veteran I see with seizures and recovering from brain tuberculosis he contracted in Iraq would always come in sad and confused due to stress and depression. I gave him some CDs and he came back the next time smiling and relaxed, telling me how whenever he feels down or angry he listens to the CDs, and now he wants to go back to Mass and Confession and wants to bring up his little sons (1 and 3 years old) in the Catholic Faith. God bless you for all you do!"

"I would love to receive anything we can get our hands on. There are now several outposts, in addition to Camp Echo where I live, that I can only get to once or twice a month. Having Catholic talks I can leave behind with the soldiers there to sustain and increase their understanding of their faith and love of God in between visits would be so helpful."

"After returning from a tour in Iraq, I have struggled with reintegration—mostly family issues. The CD The Spirit of Sacrifice in the Family was a gift and I have listened to it 3 times, and passed it on to my boss, who is struggling with similar issues. I need about a hundred more of these CDs!”
"Personally I have been thrilled with these CDs before while in Iraq in 2007–2008 and want to let you know what a powerful discussion tool you have given that just keeps on giving. They invite people to listen, and prayerfully reflect, and put into action the Gospel mission of Christ today whenever God has gifted them to be in service to God and country. The 'Guardians of the Seas' are so often sent out for 55 days or longer with only a lay leader who can use these CDs to lead Catholics to deepen their faith in Christ and his message."

"I was very pleasantly surprised to find a BOX full of CDs that I have been listening to daily, multiple times. I shared many titles with Catholic friends and then gave the rest to our unit chaplain, and he put them all in the chapel for public access and use. He was happy to have them because the military does not give us many Catholic resources. I keep wondering where these resources were when I was in my confirmation years and looking for so many of these very answers. I know the extras were sent to me because I am military and I just wanted to let you all know how much we appreciate it. Keep up the great work and God Bless all of you!"
"We received the package this week. We are so excited and I cannot thank your company enough for their support of these military families.
There are two churches nearby that we are involved in and both now have the information regarding the free downloads for military in their bulletins. This is such a blessing. The post where we are located deals with numerous deployments and I can say that there is a spiritual void here. I pray that these gifts from others will bless many families and bring them closer to their faith and our Lord!"
"These talks from Lighthouse have been a powerful tool for the Marines, Naval Personnel, Drill Instructors, and retired personnel, of Parris Island in deepening their knowledge and love of Jesus Christ and his Catholic Church."
