CHIEF Conference

Wendell and I are in Phoenix, AZ at a conference hosted by CHIEF. The conferences has been a big encouragement and we've met lots of great people. The coolest thing is I met a Hopi man who knows my great-great aunt who lives on the Hualapai Reservation. We'll head back to Yakama on Friday.

Last week, we had a team from Covenant and it went really well. The team did a great job of loving on the kids and serving.

This week, we've got a team from Mississippi and another from Alabama.

Next week, there will be a team from UW-RUF, a church from California, and a couple individuals.

Things are pretty busy, but going well. Thanks for your prayers.

Grace and Peace!

We took the youth bowling on Monday the 21st of February and had a great time! Lots of fun and good memories. You can see pictures by clicking here. (The pictures are on Chuck Clevenger's profile).

We've got a team from Covenant College here this week and they're staying busy. It's going to be a busy couple of weeks with teams back-to-back-to-back. The teams will help with the new church building and repairing homes in White Swan.

We've met with the Tribal Emergency Office and over 200 homes in White Swan have roof damage because of the wind storm that spread the fire. We've already worked on a couple and hope to fix up some more. Clyde from Mission to North America Disaster Relief, is here and helping out and MNA might send some teams out here. Clyde is also rooming with me, so it's nice to have another person out there in the big, lonely house.

Things are going very well, we're super busy, and a bit stretched. Thanks for your prayers!

Grace, Peace, and Thanks to All!
