March Note

March 30, 2015 - Author: Sarabeth Hill

Happy Spring!
The spring winds have returned to the desert, whisking away our dear friends Win and Gracia Stiefel who have been helping Scott in the office and bookstore these last couple months – what a blessing they were, and blowing in new missionaries (Joe & Abby Cook) to work with the radio stations as well as a new solid state FM transmitter to replace our over 50 year old tube transmitter that has been limping along with a lot of TLC and prayer. After three years of raising Sharathon monies toward this project Scott is excited to see it coming to fruition. Please pray that all the parts and pieces of this project come together smoothly and safely. There is still much to do in preparation – figuring out how to get the transmitter up the hill to the transmitter building (that road is a challenge even with 4-wheel drive), expanding the transmitter building to accommodate the new transmitter, and running new cables up the cliff face to the tower.
On the home front, we have been dealing with a steady stream of colds, flu, upset stomachs, and sore throats these last few months. Please pray for health and stamina.

February Note

February 24, 2015 - Author: Sarabeth Hill

Greetings,
Proverbs 13:12 describes our current situation well, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But desire fulfilled is a tree of life.” We have been hoping in the Lord to provide the funds for a new FM transmitter for 4 years and the heart has felt sick at times as we wait, but Praise the Lord with us Scott was allowed to put the down payment on the new transmitter just this February, and it will truly be a tree of life as it spreads the Gospel across the airwaves! The anticipation of its arrival personally makes Scott giddy, especially as different parts and pieces start arriving. This will be his spring project!
Thank you for praying for Scott as he continues to fill many rolls in the mission and pray for wisdom and understanding to make the right decisions daily for the myriad things coming his way, it is both mentally and physically draining. Continue to pray for our family as well, we are doing well, but in the throes of pre-teen years all the way down to toddler years, What a Joy!
Praise the Lord too that we are going to be able to complete a project from last spring, we have acquired a new bath tub to replace the broken one in our kid’s bathroom, and this is Scott’s winter project. We are so grateful for your continued support of this vital ministry and standing in the gap for us in prayer, THANK YOU!

November Note

November 12, 2014 - Author: Sarabeth Hill

Just around the corner Seasons Greetings to you and your family,
Funny how our focus changes depending on where in the world one lives! This year I found myself more focused on the Navajo Nation elections than on the U.S. The leading candidate for President was disqualified for not speaking Navajo fluently only days before the election and the Navajo Nation election has been postponed until they reprint the ballots!
Seasonal changes also change our focus and priorities and we are busy winterizing and preparing for winter here. It has been a cooler beginning to the holiday’s than I remember the last few years. Please remember to keep praying for those that pledged toward our New FM Transmitter, we are hoping in the Lord that we would see enough funds come in to be able to purchase it before Christmas.
I, Scott, am still working several positions here at the mission (Business Manager, Bookstore Manager, Maintenance worker, web wrangler, and Radio Engineer, as well as odds and ends that need doing), and only by the Grace and Mercy of our Great God, am I sustained and your prayers are greatly appreciated and desired, Thank you! Thank you also for some early Christmas donations to our support, we greatly appreciate it.
Our youngest, Gabriel Nicholas is almost 1 year old, WOW, time sure flies. Our family is doing well, Praise God!

October Note

October 12, 2014 - Author: Sarabeth Hill

Fall Greetings,
Two specific Praises! First, thank you for praying for our Tuba City, KTBA, Open House. It was an awesome success and we were touched by the testimonies of both Navajo and Hopi people as they shared how the Lord has touched their lives through that station. The Hopi Christian choir even came out to help and sing!
Second, thank you for keeping us in prayer at the beginning of the month of October, our Annual Sharathon was a great time and I believe we had twice as many listeners stop in this year as compared to last year!! The Lord blessed us with Pledges of over $29,000 toward our FM Transmitter project, please pray for people to be able to honor those pledges in the coming year. In total we are needing about $45,000 for this project – the biggest thing it will do is help save money in Electricity and ongoing maintenance. Thank you for your participation through pray and supporting this family financially!!!
The summer teams are now finished here, I think, and what a joy and blessing it has been to see folks come down from our partners in Colorado Springs, it is truly an Honor to be able to serve with you, I just wish I had more time to spend with you. We are anticipating the completion of the dorm project Next spring, please pray that God would raise up the work teams to see that happen.
