Where did October Go?
November 17, 2013 - Author: Scott Hill
Well, as you might have noticed, we did not get an insert into the receipts last month (October). The Month started with the Radio Sharathon (in which we saw The Lord raise over $22 thousand dollars in pledges toward our FM Transmitter, THANK YOU for praying). We then headed out to spend the rest of the month in Colorado Springs and Denver on a mini home service visiting with our friends and supporters. One of our supporting churches invited us to come up and they made all the arrangements for some housing for our whole family for the full 3 weeks, what a blessing that was and we had a wonderful (albeit tiring) time – So a big public THANK YOU to everyone who made our Home Service trip possible.
Less than a week of catching up at the beginning of November with duties at the office and we were off to Durango, Colorado for the Western Indian Ministries Staff Retreat where Scott was responsible for one of the five staff enhancement sessions.
It is good to slow down now and settle a little bit – especially as Sarabeth has been instructed by the doctor to REST (thankfully not bed rest) since our sixth pregnancy is a bit more complicated with Complete Placenta Previa. Please remember this in prayer, that it would go to full term and not require any emergency C-Sections. We hope you have a wonderful time of Thanksgiving and know that we are very thankful for your partnership in the ministry.
In His service, Scott and Sarabeth Hill

Greetings from the Soggy Desert!
September 10, 2013 - Author: Scott Hill
Hey, I like rain just as much as sun, but when the high desert starts feeling like Petersburg, Alaska, I start to wonder where I am living. I was just informed by Sarabeth that the average rainfall for September has already been reached at just 10 days into the month! We have had some severe lightning strikes very close, causing trouble for our radio stations – the FM transmitter is located at the top of a very steep, unmaintained dirt road. On Sunday (Sept. 8) I had to go up and turn the transmitter back on, and then again on Monday (Sept. 9). This 2nd time I had to leave my Suburban stuck in a deep rut because the mud had become way to slick even for 4WD Low in first gear, ugh.
Please be in prayer for our Radio Sharathon coming up on Oct. 3-5th. This is a really opportune time for us to be able to talk to, minister to, and meet and greet our listeners from all over the Rez and allow them to help us keep the stations on the air.
Praise the Lord that we had a couple here from another mission for a short time that was able to help us have a presence at the Navajo Nation Fair – it is a long week with huge crowds overflowing all the way back down the road to our humble little mission. We learned a lot about how we need to improve our contact with those we are trying to minister to through this experience.

Oh My! Where did Summer go?!? Even nature seems to be wrapping up here in the high desert of New Mexico as the temperatures have plummeted to the mid 60’s at night. Our Monsoon season came early this year (July instead of August) so we may end up with a wonderful “Indian Summer” this Fall.
Western Indian Ministries celebrated its 75th anniversary and Bible conference (July 25-27). It was a busy time and a wonderful time of remembering the past, rejoicing in the present, and peeking at the future of what God might be doing through this mission. We had a few less people than anticipated, but still quite a good crowd – the rains washed out the outdoor fun day though. What we heard from the people that were involved with the mission from many years ago was a great testimony to God’s faithfulness and blessing and gave a better understanding into why He is not done with ministry in this area yet!
Radio is in the planning stages for our annual Sharathon (October 3-5th). Please pray that we would make the time to get all our ducks in a row and that God would be glorified through it. The bookstore continues to take up a lot of Scott’s time, please pray that He can get back to engineering soon. Thanks for remembering the ministry and family in your daily prayers.
