Ministry at LCO Indian Reservation. Couderay, WI
Rich and Carmi went with 35 other people from Greers Ferry Assembly of God Church to do ministry at LCO Assembly of God Church that is located on the LCO Reservation. Both Carmi and Rich felt burdened for the Natives on the reservation. There was much hopelessness. They have made the decision to go back to LCO Sept 6-Sept 20.
They are excited to be able to bring Ed Sam with them. Ed is a native who was in their clean & sober housing program. Ed came as an alcoholic but he has been sober for over 10 years now. He is evidence that Jesus can transform a life.
Ministering to the Native Americans that live on the LCO Reservation
Carmi and Rich have a desire to do whatever they can to give hope to the Lac Courtes Oreilles Native Americans on the LCO reservation (along with others.)
Carmi and Rich have over the years have seen God transform the lives of individuals who were living dysfunctional lifestyles and controlled by hopelessness. A true encounter with Jesus Christ can Make an Eternal Difference.
Their goal is to focus on loving on individuals, giving them an opportunity to share their story, finding out what are their needs, ministering and praying for them. Trusting the Holy Spirit to reveal the love of Christ to them and give them the faith to believe their lives can be turned around.
There certainly will be times to provide inner healing counseling and deliverance. Why? Because ALL of us have wounds, scars that need healing. But especially those who have experienced, racism, generational prejudice, ongoing abuse, bondage to addictions, etc.
Along with the above their desire to connect with various ministries on the reservation, connect with tribal leaders, and others who are helping the Lac Courte Oreilles people on the reservation.
Take Note: Not everyone on the reservation are living dysfunctional lifestyles and hopeless. We want to find ways to encourage all to keep on keeping on.
