December 2015 Update

Nativity scene

Dear Ones,
On Dec. 17 it will be one year without my beloved. This year has been one of the most difficult times of my life.  Through it the Lord has kept His promises to me. He has given His peace, His comfort, and His strength to carry on this work among the Navajo. He has increased in me to pastor these precious lambs, sheep, and some old goats, and He has given me a great co-worker, Ms. Linda Kidder. Ms. Linda and I are in a position for now of being hands-on with everything. We are alone to do and to be all that the Lord desires, as we continue to trust and rely on Him. The doing is a lot, but the being is far more life-giving; truly our lives are not our own. We are honored to preach, teach, and share His glorious Gospel. Please keep us in prayer for the strength and wisdom of the Lord to be our portion as we trust the Lord to do the supernatural here at Smith Lake. Continue reading December 2015 Update

November 2015 Update

“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;” (Eph. 5:20)

We are indeed thankful for our Lord’s continued mercies and faithfulness to us as we serve here on the Navajo Nation.

Please keep Pastor Alana and her family in prayer as her father George passed away on Oct. 19 at the age of 94. She has flown home and will return before Thanksgiving.

There is an air of anticipation for a new moving of the Lord among us. We are few in number but willing to believe that we serve the great, all-powerful God and nothing is too hard for Him! Amen. There is desperateness in those that come for prayer and worship to see God move in their lives and their loved ones as well.

Kids’ Night Out

We are seeing fruit in our Kids’ Night Out (KNO) times. One young man accepted the Lord after being overcome with a spirit of fear during a discussion about skin walkers and shape shifting. His friends at the table gathered around him and prayed for him. Please keep Adrian and the others in prayer as the enemy seeks to devour these young ones.

Kids participating in Kids' Night Out
Fun with Jesus? Yes, Yes Yes!!!

We are looking to purchase a ping pong table as part of our KNO ministry. The gym is unheated and will soon be too cold to use for KNO activities. Ping pong will be a good addition to use in the rear of the sanctuary.

Property Updates

We thank the Lord for our brother John Emerson and his family who came and worked one Saturday on the bathroom in the house. Thank you to those who have given towards the house.

Wall prepped for painting
Ready for painting and tile work!

Praise the Lord, we were able to get the first three apple trees planted before the onset of the cold weather and anticipate planting more in the spring. The Lord blessed us with a brother at a local nursery in the selection and care of the trees.
