I want to be there.

I'm sure you've gotten this idea by now, but in case you haven't:  I cannot wait to be a part of the things happening on the Rez! I miss that busy week last summer and I can't wait to live it again.

Yakama? is written on many a Sunday's square in the calendar. I wish wholeheartedly that I could cross out the ? and the plans could be confirmed. I can guarantee that every Saturday there are thoughts of, "Let me check the weather forecast." Every Saturday I hope that there won't be snow and that someone will spontaneously suggest visiting Yakama the next day for church.

Kids Clubs are happening over two weeks during the month of March. The SRM team will meet at the housing projects again for the same VBS-type-activities that go on during the summer. I would almost give anything to be there! I am already praying, and I hope you will join me in praying, that these two weeks will be some of the best ever. That kids will come and enjoy themselves and receive the love of Christ. And also for the staff and interns, that they will be filled with an abundance of love and patience and peace over the month of March in all of the prep for these two weeks.

I am in my homey-suburbs for a reason and the Lord has tasks for me here, but I can't help but hope that one of these days the weather forecast will be clear of snow and we will head back over to the Rez.


  1. Thanks Emily for another sweet post! I can see that your heart is drawn to minister to those less fortunate who have been assigned to exist in a very difficult environment!

    Blessings, Papa Scott

  2. I am praying for you guys, Em - that the Lord will prepare you all for what's ahead and I know His timing will be perfect! Love seeing your heart for this people!
