April 2022
Dear Friends in Christ,
As we write this, we have just returned to our home from being evacuated for 5 nights due to a wild fire in our area.  Many of you saw it on the news and we had several calls, texts, messages… asking how we were doing and telling us that you were praying for us.  Thank You!!  Our property was safe with no damage and we got an unexpected vacation and break from routine.  The church in Flagstaff, where we attend when in town, put us in a nice hotel room for the nights we were away.  This was a blessing to us personally and hopefully a testimony to friends and neighbors of God taking care of our needs and using His people. (Burned 30+homes, 24+ outbuildings, 21,000+acres  but our property was not damaged! )

The Easter Teleconference went well.  Thank you again for your prayers.  Sam gave the message in English during the morning service and a Navajo pastor (Leroy Nez) used the evening service time to give the message in the Navajo language.  Plans are being made for this summer’s Navajo Family Bible Camp to be held in Flagstaff.  Pray as the outlines are being put together-they have asked Sam to do it again this year, as well as give the messages in English while the same outlines will be given in the Navajo language by Navajo pastors.  Many Navajo churches are still hesitant to meet in person as their reservation was hit hard with the COVID virus.  Pray for courage for them to once again meet together.

We spent 2 weeks filling in for a pastor in Show Low, AZ who was recovering from surgery. His recovery was going so well that he decided to begin preaching again earlier than first planned. We will be on the Navajo Reservation the last Sun. of May and first 2 weeks of June as another pastor will be away from home.  Please pray for us to be a blessing and for safety as we travel. 

July & August will be busy as we have 3 work teams coming to Alaska to help with the Thorne Bay Christian Radio project.
Please continue to Pray for the list we gave you last month:
1-safety in travel and in the work  
2-good progress so we can soon be on the air
3-electric to be brought to the site 
(This will be cheaper than a generator and also increase the broadcasting hours.
4-for the teams who need to take time off from their employment- that the scheduling will work
5-for the families left behind
6-direction in finding the man God would have to maintain the station and keep it on the air
7-SOULS TO BE WON TO CHRIST and Believers to grow in the Lord through the teaching 
We have had a response from a young family with 2 small children that want to visit the area and see if this is where the Lord would have them serve.  We want the man that God would have serve there and ask you to pray with us and for this family. (Micah & Rachael)

Last month, we mentioned a need for repairs to the roof on our home in Flagstaff.  God met this need and we were pleased that the cost was MUCH less than originally estimated.  Your prayers were answered and we thank you and our Father who kept His promises and met our needs.

We are still in our spring semester of the Northern Arizona School of the Bible.  Pray for our students and that the teaching would be clear and helpful to them.

Thank you to each of you that have helped us financially, but especially those who are behind us in prayer!  We appreciate you and thank God for you!
II Cor. 2:11 “Ye also helping together by prayer for us.”
In Christ,
Sam & Janet Grammer
