Small Native American church located at Window Rock, AZ right next to the highway has just recently had its very first church service!
The church is a combination of four trailers put together, forming a one very comfortable building. The church building itself is surrounded by a harsh looking background, filled with sagebrush, cliffs, and a lot of desert dust. Often times a wind picks up and covers everything in a dust cloud, making everything dusty and dirty.
Inside the building, there are 5 small rooms and one big hall, where the church service takes place. The rooms and the hall are barely finished, and need a little more work to be done to complete the scene. One of the big rooms is a kitchen, which is already equipped with the basic necessities. Another room is set aside for a brothers meeting, and will contain the church library. The other set of rooms will become classes for children service and many other activities, and one room will be made into a storage place.
Work on this place was done by a miracle! Brothers who had no prior knowledge at all in how to set up a trailer, yet alone 4 of them, prayed and began construction. It was a shock for many at how dilligently the building was put together, and natives would come by and comment, saying, "you guys are either crazy… or God is with you!"
Many know that a new church has been put up and a great interest is seen in the reaction of a lot of native Americans. A lot of people as they drive by the Church, they honk and waive at the workers with big smiles. Praise God!
The goal of this ministry is to spread the Gospel and to plant the seed of God's word, so that more Navajo Indians may accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
Bigest concern now is the rooft hat may leak with first hard rains. They need to complete construction before Fall. Roofing specialist are ready to go and do the job we just need to help them to cover materials cost. So let's help them to have a safe place where they can gather and preach the Word of God to native americans. Thank you. May God bless you.
