Significant Times ABF going to NM

I just returned from NM where the ABF team will serve. The team departs tomorrow at 4pm from Wooster for Cleveland-Hopkins airport for Albuquerque, NM for a missions team trip to minister to Arnold & Bessie Betoney.

The Betoney's seek to establish a network of church plants among the Native American tribes in the United States.  Their first church plant, Native New Life, is established in Albuquerque, NM.  They have helped plant two other churches--both are struggling, but surviving.  Still, Arnold & Bessie remain faithful to the Lord.

The team intends to do work projects and to minister to children, young adults, and families in Albuquerque and in Cedar Hill, NM where Pastor Daron's family serves.  The team will experience the challenges of reaching Native Americans for Christ in the city as well as on the reservation.

Please pray for the Lord to oversee their trip with safety, unity, dedicated service to the pastors and their communities, and spiritual growth for the team and those they serve.  May God bring each team member return home challenged to greater service.
