After having devoted much time to prayer along with searching and meditating on scripture, I have understood God’s calling to serve exclusively to the Lakota people on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. By God’s grace, having established Nation to Nation Ministries, the goal of this outreach is to share the Gospel in both word and deed. I have requested from the Pastor and Elder’s of Loveland Bible Church to consider my calling of the Lord and commission me for His service to this specific area of ministry.
Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
As I have been on the Reservation for the last fourteen years, I have come to admire and love the Oglala Lakota people. We have participated together in many work projects and community events. By God’s grace I have learned to look at people not only with my eyes, but through my heart. It is not enough to share the Words of Christ verbally, it is also necessary to be an example of Christ physically by my conduct.
Currently we participate in the Lakota Veterans devotional and meal and also the Lakota Veterans radio program and Firewood project for the elderly and those who can not provide it for themselves. All of these things involve working along side of the Lakota people. We do continue with the Soup Kitchen and helping with special needs that families may have. I also strive to bring mission teams to the Reservation to assist in ministering in many different areas. All of these things are designed as evangelistic tools to share the Gospel based on Scriptural principles.
Matthew 28:19 & 20
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen
I would like to express a heartfelt Thank You for all of those who have come to Loveland Bible Church today to share in this commissioning for Christian service.
My Thanks to my adopted father, Chief Oliver Red Cloud for his loving support and attendance this day.
