Once a year, St. Andrew’s ministers to the Native American Havasupai tribe in the heart of the Grand Canyon. We serve in partnership with the Veterinarian Christian Foundation (VCF), which has established trust with the local tribe by providing veterinary services to their working horses and domestic animals. During the trips, St. Andrew’s team members provide animal care, support, and encouragement for our local church partner while sharing the Gospel.
This July, St. Andrew’s collaborated with our church partner in Havasupai, Arizona, led by Pastor Bemus Uqualla, to send 19 children from the community to participate in the Broken Arrow Bible Camp. This Bible Camp, located in New Mexico, is dedicated to sharing the love of Jesus Christ with Native youth from the surrounding areas and reservations. Supai children ranging in ages from 8-18 participated in the camp, where they enjoyed devotional times as well as lots of fun games and activities.
Through the experience, three children accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior and one rededicated himself to the Lord!St. Andrew’s is excited about the increasing opportunities for ministry with Pastor Bemus and the Havasupai community. We invite prayers for a deepening of the relationship and for the Holy Spirit to open doors so that every member of the tribe might hear and respond to the Gospel message.
