Here are a few snapshots of some of what has been happening here on the Yakama Reservation.  Thank you for your continued prayers and encouragement as we serve with Sacred Road.

The Sunday School class I teach is a real highlight of my week.  I teach the 3rd - 5th grade girls and we average about 10-12 girls each week.  I love these girls so much!  We have a Bible story and make a craft related to the story. We are also learning some verses together.  Please pray that each girl might know Jesus personally, find their hope in Him and understand He has a special plan for their lives.

Working on crafts in Susie's Sunday School class

Emily and I both volunteer in the after school tutoring program (Kingdom Kids) each week. This is Jesse Dempsen who coordinates this ministry.  The children loved this science experiment!  

This cute kid really enjoyed the science experiment too
This is Ray, one of the Kingdom Kid volunteers, helping a young boy learn to use a saw.  The children participate in workshops each week where they make projects or learn something new.  Darren is currently leading one of these workshops called "Money & Spending" on Wednesdays in the Kingdom Kid's program.    
Even my mom made it over one day to visit the Kingdom Kid's tutoring program!  
Everyone got to carve a pumpkin at Kingdom Kids!

The children LOVED Darren's spiderman mask he wore to the Fall Festival at Sacred Road.

This is a special little girl dear to Emily's heart. They made paper snowflakes together.   
It was a blessing to have her around during Christmas.

This little preschooler was an angel in the story of the Nativity at our Christmas service.  The children acted out the story and loved participating in this way.  It was a very special morning with a delicious Christmas meal we all shared together afterward.

We have enjoyed lots of visitors in our home including this little cutie who stayed with us for a week and really took a liking to Rachel.

This is an early morning sunrise from our front porch.
The beauty of God's creation here on the Reservation is breathtaking.
