Our B.M.R.H.O.P. schedule is updated monthly.
Our schedule includes Friday night “Burn” meetings with “Side Room Intercession” and, at other times the Friday night meeting will be replaced by “Treasure Hunts”, taking the love of Jesus to the streets.
Any Christian having a heart for our region and willing to set aside a time for corporate prayer are invited to come and join us.
Several members from regional churches and ministries participate. Also, anyone needing prayer, Christian or not are encouraged to come. We care & want to help!
Four Feathers Native American Outreach
A Ministry of Love, Restoration & Reconciliation
Over the years of our Christian ministry endeavors and experiences, I have known about the call on my wife, Patty’s life to Native American reservations, in particular to her own people, the Standing Rock Souix in the Dakotas. Patty’s ancestral lineage goes back hundreds of years. Subsequently her grandparents and father were born and raised on the Standing Rock Reservation.
As a teenager, Patty’s father and grandfather were part of one of the last cattle drives in the U.S. starting at the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota and ending at the Chippewa Reservation in White Earth, Minnesota.
Patty was born and raised during her developmental years of her life on that reservation. At the age of five, Patty’s family left the reservation due to extreme prejudice, a child needing serious medical care and the need for work (they ended up in Northern Minnesota).
Patty has been researching her ancestral past for many years, and due to this, has been asked to speak at several museums. She has ancestors on both sides of the Battle of Big Horn (aka Custer’s Last Stand).
In June, 2016, Patty, myself and two of our sons, participated in a prayer and ministry initiative on three Souix Reservations (Standing Rock, Cheyenne River & Pine Ridge). During this ministry event, Patty was excited to discover that several of her relatives were on the Standing Rock Souix Indian Counsel including three cousins. She also discovered the likelihood that she may very well be directly related to the Chairman of the Tribe (current day chief) through a great-great-grandfather. She also discovered relatives working in many of the reservation agencies. She also made connections with Spirit Filled Native American Christians from the three Soiux reservations we visited.
THE BEGINNING OF “FOUR FEATHERS”:
The official launching of this ministry will begin it’s work on a prayer initiative beginning September 27th through October 6th 2016. (BTW, this just happens to coincide with the Jewish High Holy Days.)
The itinerary includes joining up with several Native American Christian Ministries and Native American Christians including “Warriors Circle” who we connected with at “The Asuza Call” in Los Angeles and the prayer initiative in June. Probably of the most important God-led goals/initiatives is connecting as many Native American Ministries & Christians from the different tribes* that are currently on the Standing Rock Reservation at this time.
Patty is a direct descendant of several Blackfoot Sioux chiefs including one of the first to travel to Washington D.C., Chief Smutty Bear and sign a treaty with the U.S. government. Four Feathers purpose will begin to come together as all the participants, including Patty, led by the Holy Spirit, come together with one mind, one heart and one vision, resulting in the manifestation of Jesus Christ and His kingdom in the lives of the people.
