In February of 2022, we were once again able to take a group of ladies to our annual Women’s Conference in Phoenix. Several years, these women take advantage of the hotel pool to proclaim their faith in Christ by being baptized! We have 35 ladies hoping to travel in February of 2023 for our next Conference. Our weekly Bible Studies at the Tribe’s Assisted living facility were able to run until the weekend before Easter, 2020. That Friday, we helped celebrate this critical moment in history with a parking lot picnic. Staff and residents are eagerly awaiting the resumption of these studies. Lord willing, we’ll be able to join the residents at this facility soon! In October, (except 2020), we host an Apache Pastor Appreciation Banquet, showing Christ’s love and sharing encouragement with these men and women on the front lines of very real spiritual battles. Four pastors, and four pastors’ wives all passed in the last few years. We were able to honor them, and encourage these new leaders at our 2022 Banquet. In addition to praying over these mighty men and women of God, conversations and more unfold between these leaders and those of this ministry. Mentoring and friendships unfold daily. As adults are encouraged by the ARM team, families are impacted as well.
Are truly knit to many from across the Reservation! Events are held, however, both through this ministry, and as we come alongside our brothers and sisters the Lord has placed in critical positions within churches and Tribal agencies.
“Ministry” takes many forms between the ARM team and the adults of the San Carlos Apache Nation! Some through organized events, such as conferences, picnics, and banquets. Others, simply by urgent hospital visits, confidential conversations and more.
