Spotlight: Donette Fulton
Donette grew up in a family that attended the Shaker Church. Because she had never really studied the Bible herself, she had a lot of confusion about God’s Word. She has come to discipleship off and on for the last 2 years and has consistently attending for 6 months. As she reads, and meditates on the Word, she is growing strong and stable.
It has been a joy to see her grow in the Lord. Even as hard circumstances have come into her life, she turns to the Word of God, prayer, and her brothers and sisters for support. She said in discipleship class a few months back that she would like to teach the Word to others in the future.
As we look forward to the Discipleship Class at S’Klallam Worship Center, located on the Port Gamble Reservation this September, we are excited to see how the Lord is going to use His Word to change lives. There are some expenses that we will have such as gas, the WFC course Walking the New Path and other costs related to this local discipleship training. Please pray about supporting this outreach on a monthly basis.
We are continuing to reach out to Native Churches first in the Northwest, and then as funds become available will spread the circle. We are available to do training for a weekend, a week, or even longer. We do need help on transportation, food, and WFC materials.
WFC – ONLINE:
In addition, this fall we will be developing an online course of Walking the New Path. We have already made a introduction video to this series on our new Warriors for Christ Online YouTube channel. Come by and check it out at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvUaJPOqzd0 My son Trent is helping us film this course and is really doing a Great job! Right now we are filming outside in the State Parks around Port Townsend. This provides a neat background for being on His Path- the theme of the course.
This special Warriors for Christ Online Discipleship Outreach will be able to reach Native Leadership, and Native Churches in America, Canada, and beyond. We will first put the lesson on YouTube, then on our WFC Website under Discipleship (see http://wfconline.org/discipleship-material/ ), and then put on our WFC Facebook page. The potential audience could be over 5,000. Maybe you would like to help our Online Staff in the necessary follow up that is needed to make it truly discipleship training, not just a Bible study. It is all about changing lives through the power of His Word.
