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.

May Note

May 16, 2014 - Author: Scott Hill

Greetings in the Name of the Lord!

Many of you probably already know from Facebook that I, Scott, was able to go up to Alaska for a short time to help celebrate KCAM’s 50th anniversary last month. It was a very good time of sharing what God has done with that station, seeing what God is doing there, seeing many friends and partners, and helping them out technically. I was also able to help in the installation of their new transmitter for the AM – it should help reduce their electrical use up to 30% less. Now, how do we do that here?

May is our down time here at Western Indian Ministries as the Spring teams have ended and the Summer teams are gearing up to come help out in our many projects. However that doesn’t mean that we are idle – just able to concentrate on some of our neglected tasks. The 2nd weekend of May was our Annual Board meeting here on Campus and all the work that I have been overseeing and doing on the mission finances and business office were validated when the Board accepted and approved the next fiscal year’s budget. This ‘hat’ is going to be a difficult one to keep off my head come the end of May – Please pray that God would provide a missionary that is experienced and able to take over the business management for WIM…we need them very soon.

I have asked that you pray specifically for an I-beam for our dorm project – we have not acquired one yet, but have many leads – I would ask that you remember this project overall and pray that we would have eyes to see what He wants for this I-Beam.

Thank you for standing in the gap for us in prayer and support.

In His service,
Scott and Sarabeth Hill

April Note

April 6, 2014 - Author: Scott Hill

Greetings & Hello!

Discipleship! We hosted a disciple making conference here at the Community Bible Church on our WIM campus on the first weekend in April. This is one of our main Mission goals and values as we see so much of the evangelism happening without any kind of follow up to help new believers in understanding basic truths of the Bible and how to walk with The Lord which would enable them to go and make more disciples. Our desire is to see Navajo pastors raised up from these believers as they grow and mature.

Wilfred is a believer because he heard the message of Good News on the air from our KTBA Tuba City radio station. He had the opportunity to visit with us recently and share his testimony on the air as he came over with a work team from Indian Bible College, Flagstaff. He is 40 something and will be graduating this year from IBC and is desiring to minister on the Rez back in the Tuba City area. He also is interested in helping out the Radio outreach through KTBA, please pray for him –that God would make clear His will for Wilfred.

Praise the Lord with us for what we received recently…..a generous gift toward our Dorm Remodel project that has almost fully funded it. Pray now that God would send the workers and guide us to the right materials so that we can be good stewards with what He has given us. Thank you for your support and prayers for the Hill Family in New Mexico!

In His service,
Scott and Sarabeth Hill

March Note

March 18, 2014 - Author: Scott Hill

Greetings from the front-lines!

As in any war there are many areas of duty to be served in and it takes many individuals to fill those positions and keep the front lines moving forward winning one battle at time as the army follows their commander because He is the one that knows the plans and issues the orders.  We have felt that this well describes the theater or field that we have been called to.  There are days that the battle against the spiritual unseen forces that work against our Lord and Father God are targeting a bombardment at this little fort in Tse Bonito.  As Scott is filling in for several positions in this battalion we are reassured by the knowledge that we are not in this alone, but He has called you to be a part of our supply line, thank you for putting on the armor and joining us in the fight with prayer, support, and encouragement.

Keep up the Prayer for this summer as this week (3/17) we have our first work crew here to begin work on several simultaneous projects that require someone to keep track of progress and guide in proper procedure and techniques.  Our greatest need is to solidify building plans for the remodel of one of our oldest buildings into a Dorm facility and Retreat/Conference/Christian educational center.  We still need to acquire a 44ft. or equivalent steel I-Beam (It is harder than you would think).  We will also need more funds to see this project through to completion. 

The Battle Belongs to The Lord!  Fight the Good Fight.

In His service,

Scott and Sarabeth Hill
