2019 Backpack Project-a huge blessing!


Arizona Reservation Ministries has been thrilled to provide school supplies specifically requested by teachers tucked inside brand-new back packs for children and teens of the San Carlos Apache Nation every year since 2004!

Through the generosity of many across the US, just prior to the beginning of school in July of 2019, 1,014 children and teens received their very own backpack and school supplies through ARM! In addition, a great amount of supplies, backpacks, and school uniforms were given to the San Carlos schools, churches and social services agencies!

Because our primary purpose is to lead everyone the Lord places in our path to a personal relationship with Him, these are simply a tool toward that end.  Tucked inside was a note explaining the “ABC’s of salvation” for them to read, along with an eraser printed with the encouraging words, “God erases our sins” gently guiding in that critical relationship.  Why do we count, stuff, shop and distribute so many backpacks?  There are over 1,500 students attending the schools on the San Carlos Apache Reservation!  But, many of these residents choose to attend school off of the Reservation as well, creating a MUCH greater need!  Because the Backpack Project has been part of this ministry for so long, parents and guardians know that they can trust us to provide this simple need, so that they can relax (just a little!) as they shop for school clothing, shoes, etc.  We have watched as such a simple provision, shared through Jesus’ intimate love for them, has made an eternal impact!

We are incredibly grateful to the many who assisted with this huge project!  Thank you!
