Dear Friend-in-Christ, In the northeast corner of Arizona and bordering states lies the 27,425 square mile vast desert expanse of the Navajo and Hopi Reservations. The beautiful sunsets here mask the hopelessness, alcoholism, and drug addiction so widespread among the population. Hardest hit are the native Indian children born with alcohol and drug related disabilities whose very lives lack the basic needs of nutrition, clothing, medical care, and love. As former missionaries to the Philippines, Japan, and Mexico, we just could not stand idly by. We now live and work in the small town of Flagstaff, Arizona on the outskirts of the reservation. Here we are the principals of Somebody Cares Native American Outreach, a 501(c)(3) non-profit Christian charity that seeks to save some of the neediest of these children. Over the past few years we have taken nearly a dozen Navajo and Hopi children into our home and away from a hopeless existence. We were the first non-Indian parents permitted to adopt a Navajo brother and sister from a fatherless family of 8 children born to a drug addicted mother. We have been legal guardians to most of the other children under our care. We wish we could serve them all, each and every child, but we can barely support those we have. And many more children desperately need help. Funding for this effort has been extremely scarce. We currently work full time operating the non-profit Somebody Cares Thrift Store set up for the purpose of helping needy and neglected Native children, however, income from this effort is minimal. Any positive contribution at all is only possible...
MAKING A DIFFERENCE! I was walking down a deserted beach at sunset. As I ambled along, I noticed a local man in the distance. Coming closer, I saw that he kept leaning down, picking something up and throwing it into the water. Time and again he kept hurling things into the ocean. As I approached even closer, I saw that the man was picking up starfish that had been washed up on the beach and, one at a time, he was throwing them back into the water. I was puzzled. I approached the man and said, “Good evening, friend. I was wondering what you are doing.” “I’m throwing these starfish back into the ocean. You see, it’s low tide right now and all of these starfish have been washed up onto the shore. If I don’t throw them back into the sea, they’ll die up here from lack of oxygen.” “I understand,” I replied, “but there must be thousands of starfish on this beach! You can’t possibly get to all of them. There are simply too many. And don’t you realize this is probably happening on hundreds of beaches all up and down the coast. Can’t you see that you can’t possibly make a difference?” The man smiled, bent down and picked up yet another starfish, and as he threw it back into the sea, he replied, “Made a difference to that one!” Jesus Makes All The Diffrence! Ask Him to Come Into Your Heart Today! John 3:16 ...
