Did you know that there are 573 Native American tribes here in the United States? Yes! That is correct, 573 tribes and approximately 6.79 million Native American people. They love to tell their stories, and this week, Women in the Window International in cooperation with our Native American sisters and brothers at Red Warrior Ministries is making our way to the Lakota Sioux tribe to offer Trauma Healing as we provide a “safe place” for them to tell their stories of loss, pain and suffering.
Our WiW ministry team led by certified Trauma Healing Trainer, Mary McCormack, and accompanied by Kathy Grodman and Leecy Barnett, is heading to South Dakota tomorrow for a 3-day training. Our hope and prayer is that this training will enable these women to truly grieve the terrible losses, traumas and abuse of their past—and embrace the healing, hope and freedom found only in Jesus Christ.
The American Bible Society trauma healing training materials are biblically based and provide sound counseling practices. Women in the Window team liaison, Lynn Huber, has invited Native American women from both near and far. We need your prayers that they will receive God’s richest blessings.
Please PRAY with us for:
Safety in travel by plane and on the long desolate roads of the reservation (November 20-25)
Effective teaching of all trauma healing training sessions and dramatic healing in the hearts of the Lakota women attending
Anointing on our Women in the Window inductive narrative Bible study of Abigail
God to connect our team members hearts to theirs, that the Holy Spirit would be powerfully present
Participation with Red Warrior Ministries Thanksgiving Feast this coming Sunday, November 24th
Thank you for your prayers,
On behalf of our Lakota Team Members
