Oakview

On top of working in the missions field with the Zuni people, Ryan and I have joined ship with the Brocks on the Navajo Res to the north of us in a village called Chichiltah starting a church plant there.  Ryan is helping as the “Youth Pastor” while Joseph Brock is the Head Pastor, and Leah and I are the support team 🙂  We are all working to bring the gospel to the people who reside in that area.

We met the Brock’s at a dinner we had in Zuni last summer.  They are a couple our age, and coincidentally they married on the exact same day and same year as us (but because of time zone difference we have a whole 2-3 hours more wisdom than them when it comes to marriage.  Haha, just kidding.)  They are amazing and we can’t imagine life here without their awesome friendship with us.

Church planting has been a topic of conversation in our household for several years now, and I just think it’s crazy how God works and weaves together different situations to fulfil His plans for us.  If you want to know more about Oakview Bible church follow us on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/OakviewBibleChurch/timeline.

Here are some pictures of our adventures in Navajo land.
