USA (MNN) — Hundreds of Native American and First Nation
youth are gathered this week in Missouri for the annual On Eagles' Wings Warrior Leadership
The Summit will equip these young people to make a
difference for Jesus Christ. What makes
According to Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, after 500 years of
mission work among Native Americans, only five percent have become Christians. Adult Native Americans rarely come to Christ,
and the youth respond to the Gospel even more rarely.
Native American and First Nations youth will be part of
large group praise and teaching sessions called Warrior Circles; go to Battle
Councils, which inform them of issues related to their background; build
relationships in a Christian environment, participate in daily recreation; have
access to trained counselors and hear from older Native Christians.
It wraps up on Thursday but serves as the launch for On
Eagles' Wings and Ron Hutchcraft summer
This outreach ministry is called "Seasons of Hope"
and has been used by God to bring healing and hope to many people.
God has blessed RHM with a $100,000 Matching Gift to reach
Native American young people this summer. That means a gift to make the Summer of Hope 2009 possible will be
matched dollar for dollar: a gift of $50 becomes $100, and $100 gift becomes $200. Only gifts received by August 1 will count toward the match.
Most importantly, the funds help some of this continent's
most devastated young people meet Jesus on their reservation. Please pray for the teams as they head out. Click here if you can help.
