Where do I begin? On Monday night, 8/29/2016, I returned home from a week-long mission trip to Hay River Reserve, Northwest Territory, Canada. I was blessed to travel with three more ladies: Stephanie Wickliffe, Priscilla Arneecher, & Ruth Walker. We traveled with Rev. Don Tiger, Rev. Jimmy Anderson & his two sons, Andy & Billy. God used each of us for His service.
We were privileged to work alongside Alex Tambour & Alec Sunrise, as they took us to homes of the elderly, homes of the sick, a Convalescent Facility, to the jail, & to Fort Resolution where another band of First Nations people lived, & a single lady, Ozell Borden, who lives & ministers to children. We held nightly services, singing & worshipping. We offered encouragement to those Christians living in the village, & made friendships that are everlasting.
Jesus needs to be declared among our Canadian First Nations brothers & sisters. Please pray. We need to send a man of God who would stay & minister. I will be attaching pictures.

(Below) This was our arrival day to the Hay River Reserve. We were greeted by Elaine & Alex Tambour. They fed us dinner, & his brother, Fred & wife, Gloria. Also made new friendships with RITA & Bill. We traveled from Yellow Knife to Hay River Reserve, a five hr. van ride around the Great Slave Lake. We saw one buffalo lying down. We had a singsong at Alex & Elaine's house.
(Below) We got to visit Mrs. Elaine Tambour at the PreSchool while we were at Hay River Reserve, Northwest Territory, Canada. The children loved visiting with us as we ate a delicious lunch together. We only met one shy one, but she warmed up to us. We enjoyed being with all of them. It was very impressive. Oh yes, did I mention that I got locked in the bathroom? Notice the safety wires along the top of the playground fence. It's to keep bears out!
