March 2019
Dear Friends in Christ,

It’s hard to believe that spring is already here but the calendar is filling up with ministry opportunities.  The warmer months ahead are being planned with camps, conferences and VBS.   
Pray for us as we prepare to help in these different areas by teaching and preaching.  

Praise-Sam was just asked to be on an ordination council for some men that he has had the privilege to teach doctrine classes to in the past.  It is a real encouragement to see God using these men and see them going on strong to serve our Lord! 

Pray also for Janet’s ministry in the nursing home.  She has been having difficulty finding a Navajo interpreter while Helen mends.  Without an interpreter, encouraging them is difficult. Janet can sing in Navajo but reading the Bible in Navajo is more of a challenge  because of the tonal inflections.  Also, the personal conversation is limited as the elderly often don’t speak much English.  Those that were bilingual are no longer with us or beyond any conversation in either language.  Pray for wisdom regarding keeping this ministry going and a willing and reliable interpreter.  

Sam is still planning a trip to Thorne Bay this summer to make more progress on the radio station project. Please continue to pray with us about the needs that were mentioned in last month’s letter:
*for the Alaska Power company to bring electric to the property
*finances to continue to keep this project debt-free
*volunteer work crews with the needed skills 
*reasonable air fares for self and workers

We try to get a letter out each  month, but I need to re-organize our mailing list and it will be helpful for me to know if there are corrections needed.  If you are presently getting our monthly letters and would prefer not to keep getting them, please let us know.  Also, please let us know if you are getting duplicate emails.  I also believe that some addresses are no longer in use and plan to make some corrections. Thanks.

We do appreciate each of you that has prayed for us and supported our ministry over the years.  We are very aware that you are part of our ministry and thank God for each of you. Thank you.

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