Thank you for your prayer!
Hundreds of warriors, representing many Native tribes, took part in this life-changing conference.
You would have been moved by the baptism service. Many Native young people wanted to boldly proclaim their new life in Jesus Christ.
"Do you realize we're getting to see what most Christians never get to see? Just like in Acts - people being saved daily!"
That comment to the team from a fellow warrior captured much of the miracle this amazing Summer of Hope. Day after day, young people coming to Christ - on Indian reservations! Where commitments to Christ are rare.
Warrior Leadership Summit 2015 is now finished. What a week this has been!
This was our largest gathering of Native young people - representing 115 Tribes!
There were many commitments this week: warriors choosing to begin a relationship with Jesus, or asking Jesus to make them clean, or choosing to break the cycle of sin, or becoming available to serve Jesus however, wherever.
It's so hard - probably impossible - to try to capture in words what we've seen and felt in this Summer of Hope. But it helps to see the breakthroughs through the eyes some of the Native pastors and missionaries we partnered with. In their words...
- "I feel like I'm watching something from the Book of Acts."
Reservation 3 - "Beaver Lake"
- "You are what hope for our people looks like."
Reservation 1 - "Sulphur Springs"
- "I felt like I'd stepped into heaven when I saw how many accepted Jesus."
Reservation 4 - "Shadow Ridge"
- "The Lord came down. He wanted to meet our kids."
Reservation 8 - "Grandview"
"Lord, please make this the Warrior Leadership Summit where You blow the lid off!"
That’s how God led us to pray beginning months ago. He answered that prayer big-time.
More than 1 out of 4 Native young people there gave their hearts to Christ.
