Roger and Carlene visited the morning show to give another update! We are SO thankful for the support and generosity of YNOP listeners that came in during Summer Challenge last week. We are also really excited about the new station in Helena! To hear more about what Roger and Carlene had to say, listen to this podcast!
Here is our last story to share with you from Warrior Leadership Summit 2018. When Carlene was there on the first day, as all the attendees were arriving from all over the US and Canada, this beautiful young Navajo woman came bounding up to the table where she was sitting. It was evident within the first few words of conversation this young woman was full of joy – and very uniquely designed to share that joy with others. Caitlyn is bubbly and passionate about worshipping Jesus. When you meet her and see that smile, you can never forget it – she leaves quite an impression. We pray you are blessed by her heart and her story!
When Carlene recently attended Warrior Leadership Summit – she was thrilled when she was introduced to Merv, who was also from Montana! Merv is an incredibly articulate man of God – super passionate, and he has the joy of the Lord, like you wouldn’t believe! His Native name is incredibly telling of who Creator God designed him to be – and you will really enjoy his heart, his joy, and his story. Listen, and be deeply encouraged that God is raising up incredible young Native leaders who have a heart for God, and are deeply invested in sharing their Jesus with others. **Please use discretion when listening due to the sensitive nature of this conversation.
Jenna Taylor, Program Director for Child Bridge Montana, visited the morning show and discussed the "Finding a Way Home" program. Child Bridge finds and equips foster and adoptive families to care for Montana children who have been removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect.
Craig and LaDonna Smith, are Native American Christian ministers, from the Ojibwe and Navajo tribes. Their organization, Tribal Rescue Ministries, is a ministry in close affiliation with The Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA). Craig is licensed as an Alliance official worker, serving as a C&MA National Evangelist while serving as president of Tribal Rescue Ministries. LaDonna has served faithfully along Craig’s side in music, teaching, and equipping many next-generation rescuers for more than 40 years. Their lives were changed dramatically when they were involved in a near-fatal auto accident several years ago. LaDonna broke her C-1 & 2 neck vertebrae, which in most cases results in instant death, or if survived, results in total paralysis. The fact that she is walking and suffers minor effects can only be attributed to the grace and power of God.
Craig suffered major injuries that took him right through death’s door. After being resuscitated and airlifted to a major trauma center, he clung to life in a coma for nearly two months. Almost 40 surgeries later, Craig continues to astound the doctors, surgeons, and therapists in his amazing and arduous road to recovery. Even though he is primarily confined to a wheelchair, Craig continues his long healing journey.
Craig has been a featured speaker for Promise Keepers at their national stadium events. In addition, he has represented Native Americans at the White House and at the residence of the President of Israel. As you listen to this interview, you will be blessed by the heart-felt and spiritually driven insightful comments by Craig. May we accept Craig’s invitation and call to awareness into deeper levels of prayer for the move of God happening among Native youth as we listen to his heart for his people – which is a passionate heart indeed.
Joanne has an amazing story of overcoming so much in Jesus. She has the sweetest spirit, and loves talking about the transformation that Jesus, and Jesus alone, can bring. Her eyes are full of the light and love of Jesus, and to be around her is to sense love and victory in the presence of the Father that she walks in. She's an amazing woman, and she has traveled in the past with the On Eagle’s Wings team and is so open about her story, as she knows the healing Jesus can bring to others through sharing. **Please use discretion when listening due to the sensitive nature of this conversation.
