Bus Buddies

A ‘Bus Buddy’ is an individual or group who commits to praying for this particular area of ARM.  By sending us just $25.00 each month, you are helping in a tremendous way as gasoline, insurance, snacks, craft supplies and more are on-going needs to keep this Bus rolling.  We take that partnership seriously!    THANKS for considering such a practical partnership!

 

Arizona Reservation Ministries

visits four tribal neighborhoods (actually reaching eleven neighborhoods as we travel through to pick up those who want to be part of their Church Bus!) on the San Carlos Apache Reservation every week through our Mobile Ministry Center.  A renovated bus with tables that fold down for lesson time then up for games, toys and more, and a basketball hoop on the back is the beloved Church Bus, even the school principal talks about sometimes during announcements! Kids from other neighborhoods have relatives bring them, or catch a ride on our van.  Over 500 kids are now on our attendance lists…over 200 coming weekly!  Please pray for them, and for us as the Gospel is preached by word and action.  The older kids/young teens are growing into leaders!  It is our prayer that one day soon they will have mentors and their own “Church Bus” so that specific activities, etc. can be held for them.  We’re also praying for the kids and teens who have chosen Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior over the past few years!  We were excited to celebrate our first baptisms in July of 2012!  Thirteen kids/teens were baptized as well as our summer intern! In the past two years, over forty others have joined those numbers, more voicing their decision for Christ often!

Through their Church Bus, Backpacks, fleece blankets and Christmas Stockings are distributed each year.  In addition to these weekly visits, special events are also held each year, rewarding attendance, celebrating families, and more!

Each afteroon; Monday-Thursday, our Church Bus rolls into a neighborhood on the Reservation.  As the horn honks, kids run from everywhere to come aboard and join in.  The singing can get loud, the object and Bible lessons sometimes personal or crazy, the craft and game times wild.  Everything is planned to help each and every child and teen grown in their knowlege of Jesus Christ, as they also make personal decisions to follow and trust Him.  Our Children’s Minister, Faye Hinton, is herself from this Reservation.  Four of the Church Bus Team are from San Carlos!  As the children and teens have been told for years that it is our desire for them to become the Church Bus Team, they are now watching as that unfolds, and ministry happens through them!
