  1. Thanks for checking! Anything will help. I've got some resources here, but anything else I can get my hands on would be a real plus. Lord bless!
  2. Can anyone recommend a good series of lessons on the Tabernacle? I would also like to find a good "picture" of the Tabernacle to use. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks and have a great day!
  3. I sure would appreciate your prayers for my daughter and son-in-law. They are missionaries in a country that does not allow the preaching of the Gospel. Below you will find a letter I got from y son-in-law outlining events that took place this past Sunday. Needless to say, I have removed names and certain information for security purposes. Thanks for taking a look at this and have a great day. Brother Haynes, I would like to fill you in as to what took place last Sunday Morning. We arrived at church around 9:00 a.m. Immediately following Choir; a single police officer came into the meeting. He was very rude and demanded to talk to whoever was in charge. The woman who answered the door went to Brother _________ and took him to the police officer. At this time no one knew if a police force was waiting outside the door or not, in fact the police officer alluded to the fact that there was. After Brother ______________ talked to him the police officer calmed down considerably. He then asked for all the foreigners? information and Passport information (which is usually the first step they take to a house church raid). My information as well as Brother _____________ was taken and he left saying that we would be arrested if we ever met there again. We did not have institute that evening and simply waited to be picked up. Usually if a force is not sent into the meeting the police officer will threaten in order to get some money out of the deal. We have now waited for three days and have heard nothing. This is not to say that tomorrow he could change his mind and arrest us, but it does seem unlikely. In fact today one of the members of the Church had lunch with the officer, and he commented that we had made a friend and we could continue to meet in the same location. This is very odd, and a bit confusing, however considering he knows where we live as well as all our visa and passport information we must comply. If we move, he will issue an arrest, if we stay we must cope with the fact that he may attempt to turn us in at his convenience. At this point it seems the Lord has granted us favor in the eyes of our enemies. Please continue to pray that we would be able to meet with no trouble. I certainly thank every one of you for your prayers and thoughts. I hesitated to call people with this information for fear of alarming people. However this kind of information is hard to mention without it being alarming. Just know that we trust the Lord completely and know that he can keep us here if it will glorify him. We love all of you and are thankful for you.
  4. I am a missionary on the Navajo Nation. I have had the privilege of starting a church and am now working with another one. I am looking for some good, solid children's Sunday School material at a decent price. I'm not trying to be cheap, but our resources financially are a little limited. I like the material put out by Joyful Life, but the expenses were more than the churches here could do. Any recommendations would really be appreciated. Have a great day!
  5. We use Majesty Hymns for our Navajo Church. It was published by Majesty Music in 1997. On the plus side, it has a large number of songs (641) and the typeset is very easy to read. It also includes several songs written by Ron and Shelly Hamilton which our people have enjoyed learning. On the downside, upon occasion they delete verses, not for some "sinister" reason, but for space considerations. Some familiar verses are left out of some hymns that I would rather have seen them leave alone. We also use Jesus Woodlaji Sin, which is a Navajo language songbook. I would reckon that most of you would rather skip that one !
  6. The booming metropolis of Middletown, Ohio. Now living at 6300 feet on the Navajo Nation in Northern Arizona!
  7. Hello from the Navajo Nation in Arizona! My daughter and son-in-law are on the deputation road for China right now! We will certainly pray for your success. Lord bless you and welcome aboard!
  8. Hello from the Navajo Nation! I grew up in Ohio, Middletown specifically. Great to have you on board. Have a great day!
  9. Our church supports a missionary (IBIM) to the Navajos in AZ...Sam Grammer. I believe he lives in Flagstaff and pastors a church in Tuba City.[/quote] I'd like to meet him. Tuba is a good ways from us, as is pretty much everything and everyone. If you could get contact information for me, I'd like to get in touch. Have a great day!
  10. We drive 75 miles to church one way. We started the church in 1997. As missionaries and non-Natives, we cannot buy land. We have to base ourselves out of one area and then drive to where we need to work. The next work we start is ONLY going to be 30 miles away! Just a short walk!
