Dear Friends in Christ,
We plan to be enjoying our annual family get together for Thanksgiving at the end of November, so we’ve decided to send October’s news out a bit late and include the month of November.
Our last day as Pastor at Navajo Fellowship Baptist Church in Page was very encouraging. We were able to baptize a young mother that Sam lead to Christ a year ago. She and her husband joined the church that same day. We’ve watched them both grow and actively witnessing to others and bringing them to church with them.
We were also encouraged to have one of Janet’s piano students play the offertory from the Hymnal. He’s not quite ready for congregational singing, but playing from the Hymn book is more difficult than the easy arrangements that he was been playing so this was quite an accomplishment. There is truly a need for pianists among our Indian churches and we are excited to see some of her students being used to minister in this way.
Please continue to pray with us for Navajo Fellowship Baptist as they look for a full-time pastor that can live right there in Page. We want them to find the very man that God would have take that position. So many of you in our supporting churches are also looking for pastors, so we have quite a list of churches that are included in this request as we pray.
Fall is also the season that we have our annual Fall Hunt Camp. There were 5 hunters this year, which included a son-in-law and grandson, Nate & Nathan Carmichael. In the past, we have had a camp with 3 generations in one family and this year the “generations” were our own! This year’s camp-fire Bible Study was in the book of I Thessalonians. We are thankful for a good time, safety in traveling and the hunt, as well as the 3 elk and bear that were taken. It’s great to have so much fun while serving the Lord.
Thank you to each of you that helped us these past 2 months with financial gifts and especially with your prayers. You are appreciated.
Sam & Janet Grammer
