After nearly six years, over $175.000.00 and laborers who dug trenches below the ground water, sifted and hand-placed rock in 100+ days, set two retrofitted flat-bed railroad cars from Oregon with their crane from CA and so much more…we have finally received the sign-off from Gila County! This immense Bridge Project is completed! Please join us in praising God for HIS provision of funds, laborers, stamina and so much more! What was called “The Mother of All Entrances” by the local paper is finished.
One of the many blessings of serving Christ as He leads, is joining in the celebrations of House Blessings! When a home is complete for a family eagerly waiting for a new home; perhaps their first home, a House Blessing is celebrated! God provided so that FOUR families were able to celebrate the acquisition of new homes through Arizona Reservation Ministries in 2015! Kathleen’s home (photo on left) was our 25th home! Join us in praising God for the laborers and funds so that these families and others can have a safe place…a place to call “home.” (See more about this special part of the ARM ministry under “What We Do,” or click on the 2016 House-building brochure under “Who We are/Brochures”
We were overwhelmed by the generosity of so many, and the miraculous multiplying of our Father! As Christmas approached, we were blessed to distribute 731 filled Christmas stockings through our Church Bus, seven Apache-led churches, the Tribe’s Assisted-living facility, AND the Apache Youth Council! Nearly 900 fleece blankets were also given to those in need as they received a Stocking and more! God knew that an agency providing power for most of the San Carlos Apache Reservation would serve disconnect notices (for bills as little as $35.00!) before Christmas. Blankets created by those across the US were also used in a facility the Red Cross created to house those who were forced to live without heat as temperatures dropped below freezing. “Thanks” to those who provided “God’s ARMs Around the Reservation!”

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.
