February Note

February 28, 2017 - Author: Sarabeth Hill

Greetings!

What a wonderful privilege to serve alongside you all down here in New Mexico.  We say wonderful, because it is always wonderful to serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ wherever He takes us and His Joy is eternal.  Thank you for your faithful and loving support of His ministry down here amongst the Navajo and other Indian tribes through Western Indian Ministries.

Located on the boarder of New Mexico and Arizona, Tse Bonito is nothing like Alaska except that it is quite unique in its landscape and characteristics.  For instance take the season of MUD (winter), Alaska had a mud season!, but we have discovered that New Mexico does MUD bigger.  The road to our house turns from solid, to 2 to 4 inches of the heaviest, stickiest, wettest MUD you have ever gotten to go through.  It sticks to everything except the ground and there are times when even a 4 wheel drive has trouble getting through.  This also happens to the road to the FM transmitter and tower, which means Scott has to hike there instead of drive, the first time he did attempt to drive he had to abandon the vehicle for 4 days on the side of the mountain.

August brought the start to another school year with five of our kids officially in school.  Matthew started 8th grade and Sarabeth is feeling the pressure to make sure we are ready to start high school next year.  He still loves rockets and building forts in the ‘mountain’ behind our house and is developing a growing interest in computers.  Lydia is excited to have turned 12, especially since that means she is only one year away from being a teenager.   She reads voraciously and enjoys studying history. Kara is in 5th grade and excelling in her schoolwork. She enjoys her creative writing curriculum and working ahead in her math book. Caleb, 3rd grade, moved up to T&T in Awana this year. He does well in school when he isn’t getting distracted finding better ways to make paper airplanes and building things out of old detergent bottles. Joining the older ones in school as a kindergartener this year, Ben is eagerly zipping through his math book and doing well at learning to read.  His boundless energy rarely dims even when sick and he is proud to have recently learned to tie his shoes. Gabe has done very well in potty training (yeah!) and has graduated from the nursery to join Ben in children’s church.  Our little Thomas is over 10 months old now and growing like a weed as all babies do. He enjoys playing in his exersaucer and loves getting attention from his siblings or better yet, Daddy.

Prayer Requests

Ministry

– February is supposed to be Scott’s last Month in the Finance and Business management area – pray that the transition goes smoothly and that everything can get wrapped up in a timely manner.

– Scott is and will continue to wear many hats including his primary assignment as Radio Engineer and Bookstore Manager.  Other areas that he will still be helping in are very basic Business management, Maintenance, Utilities, web development, and Mission and School IT.  Pray for good time management and wisdom in how to help others take some of this on.

-Pray that God would send more workers to this field – it is getting riper every day!

Family

– Homeschooling is getting to be a bigger job, pray for good organizational skills, for attentive children, and wisdom in choosing the right curriculum. 

– Please pray for our family in making decisions in ministry.  We have had a call from KCAM to return there, but we are still not convinced that the timing is right just yet.  Pray for wisdom and clarity of thought as we go through this process.

– Pray that we would be a good witness of Jesus Christ to all those that we meet and interact with each day – the reservation is still a very dark stronghold of the enemy.

August Note

August 17, 2016 - Author: Sarabeth Hill

Greetings!

We hope you enjoyed the newsletter!  Scott returned from his 2 weeks in Alaska at the beginning of August, refreshed and exhilarated from the hard engineering work he was able to do at KCAM – that didn’t include anything regarding money except spending it 😉 It was a nice Break.  Meanwhile Sarabeth survived him being gone without anything too critical happening.

Since returning, it seems like a blur of constant go, go, go….the mission office is in a time of transitions as some reorganization happens as we anticipate Scott’s return to radio engineering almost exclusively.  There is much cross – training to do as he prepares the hand off of the many tasks that he has been doing for the business office.  Tensions are high in the office as questions come up, interactions change, and fears arise of the unknown…PLEASE pray for Scott and all the office staff that are involved.  Scott desires that most of the hand over would be smooth and calm.

Our family is still settling in to having our new baby Thomas in the house, school in full swing, the end of the growing season for gardens and the surprising growing season for kids.  Through it all, it IS well with our souls!  Thank you for being a part of this ministry!

POINT of Interest! – We would still like to spend some time visiting with all of you during the next year to share what God is doing here.  In order to do this we need to hear from you.  We are looking for friends and supporters who will champion our ministry by introducing us to their church and others who would be interested in hearing about our ministry.  Would you consider being one of our champions and helping us in this way?

May Note

May 23, 2016 - Author: Sarabeth Hill

Greetings!

As we rapidly approach the End of May and the beginning of summer, the sound of a baby crying fills the air behind the writer and makes him almost want to cry himself.  Scott is facing a long month ahead as the other radio personnel are heading out for home service and this means that for the most part running Radio and the bookstore are his SOLO (in contrast to SOLE) responsibility, besides the business management of the mission and the many other hats he occasionally wears.  Thank you for your prayers for strength and focus during this time!

These past two months we have had some interesting Transmitter issues that took our AM 880 station almost completely off the air.  One of the power modules decided that it would short out and burn up a circuit board, with no visible reason to explain why. Thank the Lord for giving us Marc Guiett in times like these, he was able to duplicate the circuitry on a new board and we got the transmitter back to full power is less than a week. Please continue praying that God protects His equipment and helps us keep it going!

Oh…the crying baby in the background has gone to sleep, but keep your eye out for our Newsletter very soon.  You are an awesome partner to have on this journey in Serving our God, Thank You!
