On Thursday evening, we moved over to have services April 10-13 (Thursday through Sunday) at the Stillwater Indian Church on the Paiute-Shoshone reservation just outside of Fallon. This was my second year to be in services at the church, and we found the same spiritual hunger and responsiveness among the people that greeted me last time. Jesus spoke powerful truth to us regarding idolatry from 1 Corinthians chapter 10, and the impact of it was tremendous. I am deeply moved by the spiritual openness and hunger of so many of the people in the church, many of whom came with their Bibles, took notes during the message, and testified. I am thankful to Pastor Tim and Sandra Plants and their graciousness in having us come. We are privileged to be a part of discipleship in an ongoing way with this congregation through video. They gather every Wednesday evening at the pastor’s home for a meal and to study the Word through these videos. The growth in so many of them has been remarkable, and it is a blessing to continue to walk with them.
Carey and I headed home to Tennessee after a full week in Fallon, but our hearts were also full. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for these people, for what You are doing there to expand your kingdom, and for the blessing of being a part of it.
