Helping Hands Christmas Project!
Even though the ministry is shutting down, we still would like to bless the children & youth that we've been working with
for so many years. We have 75 students we'd like provide with a small Christmas gift to remind them how much Jesus
cares for them. If you would like to partner with us by "adopting" a few of these students, please click on the the link below
and send $15 per student you wish to "adopt" or mail a check or money order to us at the address below.
Thank you for lending a Helping Hand to those in need this Christmas!
It Is Finished!
The Lord has been telling us for some time now that our time on San Carlos is done. As we have been teaching our
Bible study kids to follow Jesus’ example, we followed Jesus nine years ago by leaving everything we’ve ever
known behind and coming to the San Carlos Apache Reservation to share the love of Christ.
We stressed to them that, as it says in Matthew 28:20, Jesus was with them before we arrived. Jesus was
with them by sending us here. And Jesus will be with them after we leave!
In Philippians, Epaphroditus longed for his home after serving the Lord. Paul urged the church in Philippi to welcome him home
with great joy, celebrating all that God had done through him. This may come as a shock to some of you. Some of you have told
us that the Lord had been speaking to you about this already. While we are certainly saddened to see this investment of 9+ years
come to an end, we too long for our home and families. We pray that you send us home with great joy as we leave
celebrating all that the Lord has asked us to accomplish.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-2, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the
heavens...a time to plant and a time to uproot.”
We feel the Lord has given us December 31 as an official end date and our Board is fully behind us. Our
actual moving date will depend on when our house/ministry center sells, finding a job back home
and how quickly we can raise moving funds.
We raised funds to move onto the mission field and we will need to raise funds to move back. We estimate needing
$5,700 for all of us to move. We have $3,800 so far which leaves $1,900 still needed. Please prayerfully consider continuing
your regular support until December 31st and prayerfully consider an extra gift to help us be able to move finishing
the work we started. As always, until December 31st, your gifts are tax-deductible.
We cannot begin to thank you enough for the love, prayers, encouragement and support you have given us over the years. Know that
your work was not in vain but that "the Lord will reward you for whatever good you do," Ephesians 6:8. Your prayers through
this entire transition will be greatly appreciated!
We love you all so much!
