Dear Soldiers of the Cross,
The Lord has truly blessed us to see another year and has already begun to open doors of opportunity to labor for Him, praise the Lord. But before we head in that direction, I wanted to give you and update of this past years activities.
First I would like to thank each one of you that has supported the Native American Mission Fund Ministries (NAMFM) financially and also prayerfully. Because it is through you that we are able to reach out to our forgotten native people and share the love of God with them. You are making a heavenly investment in the lives of these dear folks and God is adding this to your account.
Let me inform some of you that are new to the ministry, just what we do through the (NAMFM). Through this ministry we raise monthly support for missionaries to the Native Americans, we coordinate mission groups to the reservations and build churches on the reservations also teach Bible Schools (VBS). We supply the missionaries with Bibles and other Bible school materials. We also sponsor a Christmas shoebox ministry for kids on the reservations. We also help to supply the missionaries with whatever else is needed to assist them in their ministry.

This past year (2016) we were thrilled to coordinate a mission groups from my Tribe the (Lumbee Tribe) to the Maliseet Reservation in Northern Maine were they presented a VBS. The mission group was deeply moved as they discovered no Gospel work among this tribe. We also put together a group of eight to work in a summer camp in Cortez Colorado, working with Ute and Navajo kids. The work was hard but well worth it, to see God’s hand move among the people. Then we also coordinated a mission group from our home church (Hoopers Cr Baptist Church) to present a VBS on the Fort Hall Reservation in Blackfoot Idaho. We had many ask the Lord for salvation, please pray for them.
We spent several weeks doing construction work on Western Missions Warehouse in Gillette Wyoming. This mission’s warehouse is a great blessing to the missionaries to the west. The missionaries are free to come and take anything they need from this warehouse without charge. Bro Doug Baker also delivers goods to them. Please consider making this mission work apart of your missions outreach.
We are currently working with 65 Tribes total of 54 Reservations and most of these reservations have no solid Gospel works. Please make this a matter of prayer that God would be pleased to send forth labor’s into this harvest. Would you ask God what He would have you do and would you be willing to be used by Him for His Glory.
