Our "Samaria"

Broken Arrow, Oklahoma was our family's first mission trip together.....our first "Samaria" project.  As a result of this trip, we felt God call us to minister to the Native Americans in Cherokee, NC, (see God Winks and the Cherokee).  So we plan to share updates with you after each trip we make to share the Good News with these precious people God has put on our hearts.

Our trip to Broken Arrow, OK:

Just a view of one room we finished that week.  We completely repainted an entire bottom floor of the church that had been flooded multiple times.  We also redid the floors.
