Feb. 2018
Dear Friends in Christ,
The Bible School classes for this semester are on Christology/the doctrine of Christ.  We have students that are taking the class for credit and others that are auditing.  One of the students brought her mother-in-law to class one Sunday evening.  The topic for that particular class was “Why did Christ have to die?”  Salvation was clearly explained and the students were told that it was simple and to pray a prayer such as this…  A voice was heard quietly repeating that prayer and after Class, when asked, the mother-in-law admitted that she had prayed that prayer and accepted Christ!  The class was for the training of Believers and equipping them to serve.  But God used it to add another member to the family of God.  Thank you for your prayers.
(Included are some pictures taken and sent to us during one of the classes.  We thought you might enjoy them.)
We have had a lot of flu going around here in AZ and hearing it is hitting all across the country.  When we were traveling to the San Carlos Apache Reservation for their Sweetheart Banquet, we were called and informed that the Banquet had to be cancelled because so many had the flu.  We still had Sunday services with them though many were still out sick, as well as a meeting with some of their teens.
The next Sunday, Sam woke up not feeling well and we were afraid it might be the flu.  It was interesting to see God’s hand in it all.  When we called to let them know he wouldn’t be able to teach that night, we found that during the week, the power company was putting in a new pole and hit their sewer line so neither the church nor the parsonage had any plumbing.  Classes had to be canceled.  It was a good time for resting up and by the next day, Sam was very much improved.  Thankfully it wasn’t the flu!!
Janet and Helen had scheduled a visit to the nursing home that following week and we did postpone it so that we wouldn’t be bringing in any viruses or flu bugs to the residents.  Hopefully, the health of the general public will improve and we can start more regular visits again.
Thank you to each of you that pray for us and give so that we can remain in our ministry among the American Indian people.

II Cor. 2:11 “Ye also helping together by prayer for us.”
In Christ,
Sam & Janet Grammer
