We wish you could be with us this week at Warrior Leadership Summit.

So many lives have been changed for all eternity. Thank you for your prayers and your partnership with us.

A highlight of the week was the baptisms. Forty Native warriors chose to publicly align with Jesus through baptism, while hundreds more cheered from the lake shore.

Wow! Warrior Leadership Summit is here again.

Native young people from across the U.S. and Canada are gathering this week for a powerful gathering.

Representing many tribes and nations, these young people are believing God is going to move in a big way.

Thank you!




On Eagles' Wings mid-winter Native discipleship conference.
December 27, 2017 to January 2, 2018

Hard places. Relentless rescuers. Battlefield breakthroughs. Countless God-sightings. "Never the same" warriors.

That's just a fraction of what we saw God do in answer to your prayers this summer! Together, we can praise our invincible Jesus for a victorious summer - on reservations, and in the hearts of the warriors. Here's a summary of the amazing work of God through His warriors - and some heart reflections and holy moments behind the story.

We knew it would be hard. We were here last year, but we had to come back. Too many of us have left a piece of our heart here. It is our fourth visit here in the past ten years.

Believers in this area have explained to us that Eagle Rock* is the epicenter of the Ironstone* religion that has dominated reservations in this region for centuries. It is the only place we've been where older brothers and parents have covered the ears of their siblings or children when a warrior has mentioned Jesus.

One reservation is a major drug corridor to an entire region of the country. The other reservation is in Canada, followers of the Ironstone* religion. It is one of the most closed to the Gospel - where last year the "never happens" happened. No one moved when the public invitation was extended.

So, this year once again, the On Eagles' Wings army divided to reach more people on the same nights. Team U.S. has returned to the Minooska reservation to follow up on last year's outreach. Team Canada once again delivered hope to the Cranford Reservation.

We went to the Black River Reservation last year on a wing and a prayer. It's in what I believe to be the most Gospel-starved part of this country - a tragedy exponentialized when you're talking about the Native people of that area.

We didn't have our usual partners to work with. When Nick (Jicarilla Apache), our On Eagles' Wings Coordinator, came on a pre-visit to our 2016 reservations, he just dropped by the Black River tribal offices, knowing no one. They approved a team visit and a venue for us to use.

The Murray Creek Reservation is beautiful. Living here as a Native young person isn't. It's remote. Bleak at times.

So, the young people here are throwing away their lives one day at a time, drinking and drugging and deciding that's all life is.

Then the big OEW busful of hope starts moving across the rez, dropping off the blue-t-shirt-wearing warriors to meet as many of them as possible. They're back to nurture a work God began here a year ago.
