Dear Friends in Christ,
The fall semester has begun for the Dine Bible Institute on the Navajo Reservation each Sunday evening. There are 9 students that are taking the course for credit as well as several more that are auditing the class. Pray for the students to discipline themselves both in attendance as well as studying. It is encouraging to see them serving the Lord and using what they are learning from His Word.
October is the time of the fall hunt camps. This year we have 3 men coming to hunt, and a young man from a supporting church in Hartwick, NY coming to help, as well as hunt. Pray as Sam prepares the evening Bible studies for the Lord to direct him in what the men need in their lives at this time. Also pray for safety and a good time of hunting for each hunter.
Now that school is starting up, Janet’s piano students are returning for lessons. The main goal was to prepare church pianists that are much needed in our reservation churches. However, there are some students that are just interested in learning to play and don’t know the Lord as their personal Saviour. Pray for her as she teaches to both share the Gospel message and to encourage young Christians to use their music for the Lord’s glory.
Please continue to pray with us regarding the need of electric for the Thorne Bay radio station project. Generators can be used but having access to the Alaskan Power Company would be a great advantage. There is still much to do in getting the building completed and the extension for kitchen and bathroom added. Thank you to each of you that have helped with your giving as well as volunteering you labor.
It was brought to our attention this past month that on the mission website, our email address is a juno address. This has been changed for several years now and we are working at getting the correction made on the website. Our present email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope no one has been frustrated in trying to contact us through our email. If you have an email address but are still receiving our letters by mail, please notify us if you would like to change to an email version of our monthly letters.
II Cor. 2:11 “Ye also helping together by prayer for us.”
