For the past twelve years, it has been so fun to serve as God’s ARMs in providing backpacks and school supplies to students of the San Carlos Apache Reservation! Before school began in 2016, we provided over 1,200 students with the supplies they needed to start a new school year, as well as other supplies to the schools, and Reservation Churches! This project is much larger than what can be accomplished without your help! Thanks for helping, thanks for praying, and thanks for spreading the word!
**In order to respect the Traditions of our San Carlos Apache friends, we humbly request that no “owl” printed backpacks be provided.
We were so excited to be able to begin this New Year by providing the keys to new homes to two families! Only through God’s leading and provision is this possible. We are thankful for the people the Lord sent to add their ARMs to the building, and those who sacrificially gave so that such precious provisions are possible!
Once again, we were humbled by the generosity of so many! We thank God for those who hand-tied warm and cozy fleece blankets, stitched beautiful stockings, thoughtfully shopped for treasures to tuck inside and sent the funds/gift cards so that we could finish the task. Over 850 blankets and stockings were distributed this Christmas! Jesus IS the reason we celebrate-not just at Christmas, but all year long! As 2017 begins, lessons from the Church Bus will focus on an intentional “walk through the Bible.” Please keep praying for both this ministry, and the children, teens and adults we are blessed to celebrate with each and every day!
Word has arrived that SB1216, a bill passed by the Arizona Senate in May of this year, has increased the amount allowed for a Tax Credit to agencies/ministries such as Arizona Reservation Ministries! Because the allowed donation amount had not changed for several years, but inflation had increased significantly, allowable contributions have doubled.
That means, a single individual filing his/her AZ Tax documents may be eligible to receive back up to $400.00 through AZ Tax Credit, contributing that amount to ARM as a qualifying charity within this State. Couples filing jointly can now claim up to $800.00 during 2016. This is a huge praise for this ministry, as well as those who earn an income within the State of Arizona and wish to have more control over where those funds go. As always, consult your tax advisor to see how this increased tax credit applies to you. Thanks for joining us in praising God…and thanks for spreading the word! Please note!

Saturday, August 22nd, 2015 began with torrential monsoon storms. The water level in the river we had already baptized over 60 children and teens in the past three years was too low, so we headed to the lake. The sun broke through and the baptisms unfolded. Twenty-nine children and teens made this life-changing choice, with parents and grandparents looking on. Please join us in praising God for the harvest, and praying for these new Children of God, and their families as well.

Arizona Reservation Ministries exists to provide God’s ARMs around the Reservation. Currently serving on the San Carlos Apache Reservation in ways only God could orchestrate, those “arms” are providing a hug for children, shooting basketballs with youth, building homes, distributing clothing and food to impoverished families and sharing God’s hope through the Gospel with all ages. Established upon the principal found in Exodus 17 where God’s people need the assistance of others, ARM has chosen the servant position of Aaron, holding up the needs of our Apache brothers and sisters as the Lord leads. Those who partner with us—financially, prayerfully, or physically, are likewise upholding those in God’s family who live in tremendous poverty (“Hur”). That leaves the “Moses” position: Native Christians are more than capable of representing Christ on their Reservation. With their limited funds, etc., we are simply called to “hold up their ARMs.” We’re grateful that you’re taking the time to read about us, and acknowledge that our deepest need is your prayers.
