“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.” – Ephesians 2:8,9
LIGHT FOR THE PATH
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” – John 3:16
“Simple”, because it only takes a bit of faith in such a loving and great Savior, the Lord, Jesus Christ. The Bible says it just takes faith the size of a mustard seed – the smallest seed – to become a Christian. “Hard,” because we want to reach our Creator through our “own” good works. We want to be saved through “our” way, at “our” time. We add so much to the simple truth of the Gospel.
Share the simple truth of the Gospel with all, despite the sin they may be in. The Gospel, should be shared freely, and not be a burden by adding our own do’s and don’ts.
WARRIORS FOR CHRIST NEWS
Warriors for Christ Discipleship:
Fall discipleship outreach to Arizona – We will be heading back to Arizona again this fall to do another discipleship training at Indian Bible College in Flagstaff. We are excited to be returning as the last training was such a success. Dates are still in the planning stage, but e everything should be finalized in the next couple weeks.
In addition, we will be doing discipleship training at Pastor Cid Cota’s church in Show Low AZ. Pastor Cid has a desire to be a bridge to the reservations in his area and he is centrally located to the Navajo, Hopi, Apache, Pueblo, and Zuni reservations. He and his congregation have a vision to reach these Nations and Warriors for Christ will help provided training in how to use Walking the New Path and the materials they can use.
We are also hoping to provide discipleship training in a couple other churches – one in Flagstaff and the other in Phoenix. If your church is in the area and would be interested in discipleship training please contact us. If you are a part of a Native church, give information to your Pastor about Warriors for Christ. It is our goal to provide training workshops in Native churches in North America, to see lives changed, empowered by His Word, and
then leave Walking the New Path, so those who have been through the training can disciple others. We are available for discipleship training in your church, or at the Warrior’s Path, Warriors for Christ’s headquarters in Port Townsend, WA.
Whether a Sunday morning service, weekend workshop, or a weeklong discipleship seminar, WFC would love to share Christ’s hope for the Nations to your church, reservation, or with a group of family and friends. Please share our Facebook and Youtube with your friends and family.
To make all this happen we need your help, support, and prayers.
Special needs for this trip:
Prayer — That doors will open, and hearts open too.
Financial — gifts to help cover – airfare, food, rental car, lodging and copies of Walking the New Path for students and pastors
Volunteers — to help with all the details and materials, in Arizona
Warriors for Christ Online:
Warriors for Christ Online YouTube channel, website and Google slides:
Share Warriors for Christ’s resources with your friends and family.
We are putting all our lessons on Google slides (similiar to PowerPoint) which can be used by Native Pastors and leaders. You can even use the YouTube channel and Google slides to have a study in your home. This is an easy way to share the God/s word with those you love. Or these resources can be used as a training tool for disciplers, for small group discussion, or for the general public. They can be used on the reservation, and in urban areas.
Webmaster and technical help:
As we continue to add additional ministry tools that can be used by Pastors and disciplers, we also need more support staff to help with all the technical needs. Currently, we really need a new webmaster and a volunteer to help with YouTube videos, Google slides, and other technical jobs.
Warrior’s Path –
Warriors for Christ’s headquarters in Port Townsend, WA
It has taken longer to complete than we were hoping, but we are now ready for mudding and painting. If you have a group that would like to come help with this project, please give us a call and we will set up a time to come. Just $200. would be enough to paint the interior!
Pastor, please make plans with your church, or leadership, to come for discipleship training at the Warrior’s Path. The training could be a weekend or a week – long getting in depth training on the use of Walking the New Path and retreating to the beautiful Northwest!
As we develop the Warrior’s Path we have increased maintenance needs. We invite you, your family, and/or church to come by and lend a hand. Can you help with a project? Phone us so we can make arrangements. We are located just outside of Port Townsend WA with great recreational opportunities including the Olympic National Park, sailing, etc. It can also be a fun time for horseshoes, campfire, outside Gathering Place, etc. Some lodging is available.
The Lodge – used for group study, prayer, and guest bedroom
WALKING THE NEW PATH
(Below is an excerpt of the Warriors for Christ discipleship course, Walking the New Path. Each newsletter we add a new section each newsletter.)
(LESSON 7, Talking with your Father Creator – Prayer, Part 4)
You “petition” the Lord when you ask or make requests of Him. This should be done at the end of your prayer time. Don’t let this be the only type of praying you do. There is not a need or problem too large or too small that you can’t ask of Father Creator to help you with.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” – Matthew 7:7-8
“Answer me when I call to you, O my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; be merciful to me and hear my prayer.” – Psalm 4:1
The Book of Psalms gives many good examples of David petitioning the Lord.
NOTE: To help you remember the 4 stages of prayer, use the 4 directions. As there are four directions, there are also four types of prayer.
The East – where the sun rises, start with praise for who He is
The South – where the warmth of the wind blows, thank Him for what He’s done for you
The North – where the cold truth of sin reveals the need for repentance, ask for His forgiveness
The West – the final direction is for our requests/petitions
The first two are giving to God, the last two are asking from Him.
