Thank you for praying!
The trip to Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota, was amazing. We learned so much about the Lakota nation, and met some incredible prayer warriors who have been standing for their people for decades. We ate Buffalo stew! (It was delicious).
Along the way, during the trip, we stopped at the location of the Wounded Knee battle, and were sobered to read the details of the battle in the actual location. Driving through White Clay Nebraska, just outside of the reservation (google White Clay to see what I’m talking about), was a stunner. Listening to the stories of the people who live on Pine Ridge, and seeing the children who hang around, day to day, at the rec center where we were, gave us a lot to pray about for the future. We look forward to going back. Wayne and I felt it such a privilege and honor to be there. Words are hard to describe what it was like. So we will leave you with a few photos, which we hope will convey, in some small way, the wonders of being on the reservation, and the blessing from the Lord, to be there.
We prayed on top of the highest point of Pine Ridge, with about 25 others. We took communion and prayed that the Lord Jesus Christ would come and bring a new day of salvation to the Lakota people.
Our team led several worship & prayer sessions, where people came forward and proclaimed the Word of the Lord from the Bible, over the land. We participated in a March for Jesus, into ‘downtown’ Pine Ridge (this being the crossroads of the reservation, and where there are a few small businesses located), showing unity in the Body of Christ on the reservation. “If I be lifted up…”
