July 2020 Prayer Letter

Dear Soldiers of the Cross,

As I sit at my desk writing this letter, my heart is aching to be out on the reservations laboring with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have asked the Lord to help me not to take for granted the wonderful opportunities he has given me to put my hand to the plow in his vineyard. I’m reminded of the shortness and the vulnerability of our opportunities we have in reaching the lost for Christ. How many souls have gone out into eternity without Christ during these days of shutdown, without anyone standing in the gap to warn them of their latter end? Oh, God help us to be busy about the Father’s business. John 9:4 “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” Many of the missionaries on the reservations I have talked with say that there is a great fear among the Native people about this covid-19 and that many of them don’t want anyone to come see them. Please pray that God will open their eyes, ears and hearts to the Gospel.

I would like to give you an update on the Navajo Reservation and our upcoming relief project. At present the Navajo Nation has 9,019 positive cases of covid-19 and 454 confirmed deaths. Please keep the Navajo people in your prayers. The reservation is still on lockdown and still enforcing an 8PM thru 5AM weekdays curfew and a 57-hour weekend curfew from 8PM Friday thru 5AM Monday morning. Lord willing, we will be taking out another tractor trailer load of food and other essential items to the Navajo Reservation. This load will consist of pallets of food and not the traditional food boxes. This will allow the missionaries to better divide and manage the resources. In addition to the food, we want to purchase another tractor trailer load of bottled water. We will be purchasing other supplies: face masks, sanitizers, toiletries, baby diapers and adult depends, etc.
If you would like to help with this relief project by mail, you can send a check to Native American Mission Fund Ministries (NAMFM), 3232 Hendersonville Hwy, Pisgah Forest, NC 28768. Mark it for Navajo Relief Fund. Or you can make an online donation by going to our website,, and click on the drop down page, Navajo Relief Fund. Please pray for us as we reach out to help these dear suffering people with the Gospel by hand and feet.

Please continue to pray for us as we are in communication with several of the missionaries on the Navajo Reservation concerning the future site of the Southwestern Missions Warehouse. God is giving us an object lesson through these days of coronavirus (covid-19) of the need for this warehouse resource.

As We Labor for Christ,

Please Help with Operation Christmas Child Boxes

Dear Soldiers of the Cross,

Christmas Shoe Box PLEASE HELP




It is time for us to turn our focus form the cares of this life, “Covid-19, Riotous people and the Presidential election” and every other fearful happens in your life. It is time for us to get our minds back on reaching out with the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world. We are continuing to reach out to our Native children with acts of love through our Christmas Shoeboxes. Please pray over these reservations and ask God to direct you to the one he would have you to send your boxes of love to. Please fill free to contact me for any questions you may have.

Items that may be included: KJV Bible or New Testament, Scripture help ads (suitable for age group), pens, pencils, paper, toys (suitable for age group), candy, snacks (Slim Jims, jerky sticks, etc.), coloring books with crayons, game books, small computer games, girls (jewelry, makeup kits, etc.). Ask the Lord to direct what He would have you send. We recommend putting the gifts in a clear zip lock bag so the missionaries can make appropriate gifts for each of the children, this also makes shipping easier and lease expensive. Mark age groups (example: 3 to 5, 5 to 8, 9 to 12 etc.) also girl or boy.
