January From the Hillside Newsletter and picture
January 5, 2016 - Author: Scott Hill
Greetings, our latest Newsletter for January 2016 can be found by clicking on the link. Please also find a printable copy of the portrait above by clicking here.
POINT of Interest! We are a little overdue for our Home Service! Limited resources and the NEED of the field have caused us to postpone and postpone. Our churches in Colorado Springs provided for us to visit with them for a month over two years ago, but we have the rest of you to see. We don’t have any dates set yet in 2016, but we would like to hear from you if you are interested in having us visit and present our report of God’s work in this ministry sometime in the coming year to you, your friends, or churches. We sincerely appreciate you and your partnership in God’s call here in New Mexico and thank you for your continued prayer. Looking forward to hearing from you! In His service, Scott and Sarabeth.

We hope that you have received our Newsletter from Christmas time and have enjoyed reading it and seeing the pictures. We hope to get more of those out this year Lord Willing! January has been a cold month here in Tse Bonito New Mexico and we have had quite a bit of snow, but it is now turning into mud, Oh, the joy of MUD. Well, I look forward to it drying up!
Speaking of MUD, sometimes that is what I feel like I am trudging through at the office as we work on getting the new accounting firm settled in to our chaos. They have done a marvelous workover on our books and actually finished our Non-Profit 990 tax return earlier than I can ever remember since being here. Please pray that this initial time of transition will end soon and the extra load of accounting on Scott will be relieved. God is good and gives strength when needed.
What a true wonder and privilege it is to have you partner with us in this ministry outreach to the Navajo Nation through Western Indian Ministries, where the trenches are very muddy right now. Thank You from all of us!
P.S. Our vehicle fund grew over the last couple of months and has made it up to $4200 of the $7000 needed to purchase and repair a used 12-15 passenger van for our family. If you have not had time to pray about donating a little extra or you just forgot and wanted to help our church in Colorado Springs that is working on finding this vehicle for us, please take some time now. PLEASE PRAY about this and as the Lord leads you can make a donation online at http://van.scottandsarabeth.com and selecting the ‘program’ –“Van for Scott and Sarabeth Hill”, or you can mail a check to Sabre Missions, P. O. Box 9354, Colorado Springs, CO 80932-0354, and put in the Memo line ‘Van’, with no name included. This is a tax deductible donation.

The month of October kicked off with Scott finishing a 2 week work trip up to KCAM in Glennallen AK. The station there asked him to come up and assist in several areas of engineering alongside of Rod Thannum from KTIS in Minneapolis. Rod is one of Scott’s mentors in Radio Engineering and a longtime friend. It was a good time of getting back to just geek stuff and a great blessing to be there on Independence Day for KCAM – Joy Media Ministries officially launched with the signing over of the radio station. There is much work for the new organization as they ramp up and learn to fly, so please remember them in your prayers.
Meanwhile, back in NM, the stations seemed to run very nicely during Scott’s absence, Praise the Lord! Thank you for praying about the accounting for WIM, we may have found a firm that will take on that roll for the mission at a reasonable cost, but we are just now testing the waters as this will affect several people in their jobs and I, Scott, have quite a bit of trepidation from past experiences. Thank you for continuing to pray that God’s will be made evident in this matter.
As always, we thank you for your prayers and donation to WIM as you partner with us in this ministry outreach to the Navajo Nation.
P.S. Today we were told that one of our Churches in Colorado Springs has found a 15 passenger van for us that they are willing to put some money into purchasing and making minor repairs to if we could get others to donate to help out with the costs which will amount to around $7000. They have set up a donation page and we are asking everyone to make an extra donation to help cover this vehicle for our family – which by the way will be growing by one in April 2016. PLEASE PRAY about this and as the Lord leads you can make a donation online at http://van.scottandsarabeth.com and selecting the ‘program’ –“Van for Scott and Sarabeth Hill”, or you can mail a check to Sabre Missions, P. O. Box 9354, Colorado Springs, CO 80932-0354, and put in the Memo line ‘Van’, with no name included. This is a tax deductible donation.

Things never seem to slow down here at this spiritual Navajo Battle Front! WIM is hosting a translation group called UniSkript that hopes to make it possible for every Navajo Language speaker to be able to read the Bible in Navajo, and write in Navajo – UniSkript will be a significant tool to help preserve, promote, and revitalize the Navajo language and culture. They are missionaries that came together from all over the world – some have been on their fields for many years, and God is using them to reach many cultures for him through this language technique. We also are hosting our last work team of the ‘summer’ during the third week of September. Pray that they can stay on task and make a big dent in the Dorm/Retreat building project.
The WIM leadership is actively looking for some people that will be able to relieve Scott from the bookkeeping and Business Management Duties of the organization so that He can return to doing the Radio Engineering full time as things are expanding with the Broadcasting department and will require attention. Please pray for an Accountant and business manager to be found really soon.
Thank you for your prayers and donation to WIM as you partner with us in this ministry outreach to the Navajo Nation. For more information on UniSkript go to UniSkript.org on the web.
