In late January, we had the honor of leading worship & prayer on the Morongo reservation, in Banning, CA. This reservation is home to the Morongo band of Mission Indians. It is a beautiful place, not too far from Palm Springs. The impetus for the gathering, was a family murder which occurred on another Southern California reservation. These communities are small, and what affects one community, often affects another. As some of our First Nations friends from out of town were coming to San Diego for a visit, we were able to gather together on Morongo, and worship the Lord, praying & speaking His Word over the people. These gatherings are always an honor. We would ask you to please be in prayer for us, for the Lord to open up more doors for worship & prayer gatherings on, or near, reservations throughout North America. Our deepest desire, is to see the host people of the land, come to the Lord.
A friend of the ministry was recently inspired to donate funds for blankets, after a visit with us, to some of the care facilities. Their generous donation, our partners connection to the right place to purchase, and some haggling with the merchant, produced 145 warm blankets for the residents. There were many sweet, and smiling faces, on this cold rainy day.
Blessings, Wayne & Carol
Wayne just returned from helping lead another Living Waters Training. Nearly 50 participants, left their burdens at the cross and returned to their church communities to lead others to do the same. Carol is on her way (March 2–6th) to the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota (YES, in the middle of winter) to join a team at the “Indigenous Healing the Land conference- from Wounded Knee to a bright new future”.
