For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. Col. 1:16-17

Thank you for your continued prayer and support of the ministry among the native Americans. Forty years ago Mom and Dad packed up us boys and headed west to begin ministering among the Navajo. God has proven Himself faithful day after day.

During the past several weeks He has again blessed here at Hualapai Baptist Church. In February Evangelist Andy Gleiser and his family were with us for a week of special meetings. Brother Andy has been here a few times now. And we were again blessed by his ministry in the Word and in song. The highlight of the week was when one young man accepted Christ as his Saviour. Several gave testimony of how God used the messages in their lives and how they have appreciated watching Brother Andy grow in the ministry.

Please pray for another man who received Christ a couple of weeks ago. He has struggled with a number of issues during his life. We are hopeful he will be admitted to the Reformers Unanimous House in Rockford, Ill. He has a great desire to know God’s deliverance from addiction and oppression. We have many obstacles to overcome, but know God is able to bring him true deliverance.

A quick trip to the east coast gave me an opportunity to see our son, Josh, and to stop through Indianapolis and report to one of our supporting churches.

We are reminded that Christ created all things and He is in control of all things. This knowledge gives us the faith and courage to continue on for as many years as our precious Lord chooses to give us. And we look forward to taking that journey with your faithful prayers and support.

For God’s Glory,
Steve De Ford
