Bryce and Autumn Roberts, with their children Bryce III, Rachel, and Joseph, have recently left Sun Valley Indian School in AZ after ministering for 3 years. They believe God has lead them back home to the Wind River Reservation in WY. Bryce grew up in this community and is eager to be a light for Christ to the young people living in the area.
Bill and Janet Carr were excellent hosts while we visited some folks in Montana and Wyoming. They introduced us to Heather Buchanan who teaches math at Lodge Grass High School. She disciples young people and leads an FCA group on campus.
Janice Albright spent countless hours putting together these gift bags for children on the reservation. They were for all ages and they were very popular! The bags opened doors AND hearts! Thanks Janice!
Once the new roof was finished, the guys "raised the cross"! This is one of our favorite pictures!
We LOVE that this church now "shines like a beacon" from I-35!

MF partnered with this great group of people to make improvements to the New Life Nazarene Church in Sanders, NM. We scraped and painted the outside, replaced the roof, and put new security lights outside. Also, two nights were spent going out into the community to invite neighbors to the movie night. We showed Fireproof during Wednesday Night Church, and we had several visitors!
We're so proud of Damian! He shared his testimony to a lunch crowd of 35 homeless friends. It was an honor to help Pastor Chris and serve these people!
We had the opportunity to buy pantry items for Gallup First Nazarene. What a blessing!
Pastor Chris Davis is ministering to the homeless and addicted in the area. She picks them up in her van and feeds them a good meal several times per week. Most importantly, she shares the love of Christ with them!
We had the opportunity to learn more about the Cactus Nazarene Ministry Center located 13 miles north of Dumas, TX. Refugees seeking political asylum from 17 different countries, speaking 20 different languages, are employed by a meat packing plant in town. Vito and Jenny Monteblanco are reaching out in compassionate ministry to the thousands of people living in the area. If you would like more info on ways to be involved, please visit their Facebook page.
