Summer of Hope Sees Hundreds of Young Native Americans Choosing Christ
Ron Hutchcraft of Ron Hutchcraft Ministries provided Mission Network News with very encouraging news regarding the largest Warrior Leadership Summit in their twenty-five year history with 71 tribes represented. Summits provide annual opportunities for “Native American young people to gather, hear about Jesus Christ, grow in their faith and fellowship together.”
Earlier this summer, we shared about the Warrior Leadership Summit, a conference for Native American young people to gather, hear about Jesus Christ, grow in their faith, and fellowship together. Following the summit, an On Eagles Wings “Summer of Hope” team, made up entirely of Native American young people, was sent forth on a Gospel Witness tour to Native reservations across North America.
Hutchcraft says, “I have been eyewitness to hundreds of Native Americans choosing Christ in the past three and a half weeks. It is stunning to see them publicly go forward in front of everybody — you can’t say you didn’t do it tomorrow — and choose Jesus as their Savior, and then to be carefully counseled by our team members to be sure they understand it. Then that very night, we make sure that all the names of new believers are turned over to our partners there on the reservation who invited us, and the follow-up begins immediately."
“Pray that God would open eyes that have been closed to Jesus, open ears to hear exactly how much He loves them, that He will give courage in hard situations and conversations to the warriors of the On Eagles’ Wings team, that He will go ahead of us and prepare the ground and soften what otherwise might be hard and closed hearts, and quite simply that there would be a breakthrough that could begin to change the climate and that for these precious people Jesus would become someone they realize they actually could consider and open their eyes to and that He is not the enemy. He is the best friend they could ever have.”
