San Carlos Prayer Journey

On the 20th of this month, I had the opportunity to attend a Prayer Journey on the San Carlos Apache Reservation just east of Globe, AZ. At the time I wasn’t sure what a “Prayer Journey” actually was, but I was just coming off a period of fasting & prayer for the health needs of family members I felt that I was meant to attend. My husband and I have lived here in AZ for more than sixteen years and I knew that there was a Reservation here but I had no idea that there are actually 22 Reservations within the state! San Carlos is the 3rd largest, it has a little over 2,800 square miles and has a population of approximately 14.000. Ok, those are all the stats I am going to share with you. On the way up, Veronica told me about the organization that LifePoint works with; ARM – Arizona Reservation Ministries. Dale and Diana Lawrence are the missionaries that lead the organization. Before leaving home I began praying for the journey. I asked that God would use me as He saw fit. We arrived on the ARM property and I met Diana and she shared that she was feeling pretty good now as she had been having problems with her back. I asked if she had had anyone pray and lay hands on her and she said with a big smile that that is exactly what had happened. As soon as that had happened, she had great relief from the pain that had inhibited her from getting around. That was a great start to the experience! She gave a brief description of their property and how God had moved in the purchase of their property. Diana also pointed out many different areas on the property and...

My360Project & Mexico

Our newest partner, My360Project, offers shoes to children all over the world. These aren’t simple sneakers though. These shoes actually grow with the child! How many times have you wished for a pair of shoes that would grow as your children grew? These shoes aren’t simply boastful, they hold up to a high quality of standard! Each one is made by a local artisan, thus creating more income and jobs for the communities they serve. To learn more about My360Project, check out their website! My360project.org I was recently asked if I would accompany the next team to their location in Mexico where they are opening a new factory on the Baja side of Mexico. This gives us a view into what My360Project actually does while on missions. Vicente Guerrero, Mexico, is a small migrant community that will definitely benefit from the employment that comes with this new factory. Additionally, those living in the area would benefit from such an amazing product! Kelsey Regan and I will travel on March 4th through March 8th with an existing team from Alaska. We are so excited to be partnering with My360Project and to be learning more about how we can come alongside them in the future. Please join us in prayer during this time! Kelsey will be sharing her experience when we return. If you are interested in going on a mission to Mexico, Belize, Haiti, or the Philippines, please send us an email at Missions@lifepointaz.com Veronica Thiele, Missions Director...

Vineyard Pregnancy Center Partnership

We are excited to announce our partnership with Vineyard Pregnancy Center. If you were in attendance for our Missions Sunday, you might have seen their table, complete with the models of babies in utero. Vineyard Pregnancy Center is “A place to help people who think they might be pregnant, or are pregnant, get the services they need to have a healthy baby. Vineyard Community Pregnancy Center’s purpose is to encourage, educate, and equip people in Queen Creek with the resources you need to have a happy, healthy pregnancy and parenting experience. Our goal is to meet you at your point of need… Let us come alongside you and help you sort out all your options. With life-centered counseling a birth plan can be constructed. Sometimes our past choices have left us wounded and in need of healing. We can help with this as well.” Vineyard Pregnancy Center offers free pregnancy tests, help women choose life, hand out home-made baby blankets, diapers and supplies, as well as conduct classes, and advocate on behalf of new mothers and adoptive/foster families. They offer ultrasounds and a wonderful educational program called BrightCourse, a Christian based and life-affirming prenatal and parenting curriculum. These classes are offered to all their moms and families. The pregnancy center also has a “she-shed,” on the property of the King and Queen Farms in Queen Creek. This spot is a great for the collecting and distributing of diapers, wipes and other supplies. Vineyard Prengnacy Center also has a brick-and-mortar building in downtown Queen Creek, near Amadeo Church. However, the most exciting adventure for Vineyard is the purchase/acquisition of a large “previously owned,” mobile pregnancy center bus for traveling between the two pregnancy centers in Queen Creek and San Tan Valley, as well as around the state. They are in the...

San Carlos Men's Work Day in the Books!

This past Saturday several men went up to the San Carlos Reservation to continue the work on building homes for the Apache people. This specific home was for a pastor and his family who desperately needed a home to call their own. This home you see in the picture is also located right next to the church, giving this family the ability to witness in a tremendous way. We were able to get flooring down, cabinets hung, and the building of the front porch with a ramp. It was a lot of hard work but so worth it knowing that is family is one step closer to moving in. Thank you to all of you at LifePoint for the support of our local missions that allows us to do this! Pastor Blake Wilsford...
