Joyously In His Service,
A Moment of Inspiration:
The Holy Spirit has placed a dream upon my heart for the Native American people across the entire United States. I know that this vision is God’s Heart and not mine. I could never have the spiritual vision for such an undertaking, without the clear direction of the Holy Spirit.
I ask you to pray about forming your own ministry to Native American children and their families. Churches can "adopt" a reservation, or any tribal land. Individual Christians can do the same, but working closely with churches that have outreach vision, is usually the best way to begin your ministry.
Each Native American community has individual needs, and I have found that many Native American churches need assistance from Christians, who have a servant’s heart.
Pastors frequently lack bibles and other gospel literature. They often need prayer and encouragement. They need friends who will listen and assist them. Helping with Vacation Bible School can be great, but developing a long lasting friendship, with on-going help, provides the best ministry.
I am here to answer your questions and to help you get started. I have a resource page available that answers questions on how to find and order the best bibles and gospel literature, at reasonable costs.
God’s Precious Jewels began on a "dream and a prayer," with very little money, and little knowledge of Native American culture. However the ingredient of love and willingness sparked the ministry off successfully. Over the past nine years thousands of bibles and gospel literature portions have been placed into the hands of our Native American neighbors. Home missions are a wonderful way to bless precious souls, and those souls need to know Jesus.
I must mention that I have the greatest respect for the many Native American pastors that I have worked along side of. They face difficult life issues, work long hours, and many have to hold down fulltime jobs just to continue in ministry. Such is also the case with pastors from different cultures, who are called, to minister to Native American people.
The best way to begin is – to begin! I am here to help, so please feel free to call, email or write for more information. God bless you as you pray about picking up the banner in reaching out to our neighbors.
With love in Christ,
