    Wondering if anyone has info on the need for mission work in SW United States among the Native Americans? Where do I start? Anyone know who I can talk to for encouragement/advice? Is there even a need? (Possibly a stupid question!)
    I am led to start a work there but I need information to make good decisions. (I know the Lord will lead but I need info.)
    God bless for any help you can give!

    Edited only to fix typo in title

    Bro. Ron and Don Corley, twins, have been working to reach the Navahos for over 40 years. They are independent Baptists, and are godly, wonderful missionaries who would be happy to hear from you.

    Their mission is called Bible Baptist Shepherd Mission. The phone number is: (505) 632-2994.
    The address is:
    Pastor Don Corley
    1105 S. Miller Ave.
    Farmington, NM 87401

    Mexdeaf, C4K and other old Tennessee Temple hands will remember how the brothers team-preach. One will take the intro while the other does a Navaho chant behind him. Then they will switch places for each point of the message. If you are not watching, you won't realize when they switched!

    Bro. Johnny V, I went with one of the brothers (forgot which one) to a Missionary Baptist missions conference one time, and got left in the lurch by him before lunch--but had a great time anyway. ;)

    An amazing team. My wife went on a mission trip there when she was a teen - I wont say when that was ;) - and the Lord used that to direct her heart to missions!

    I remember seeing them team preach - amazing!

    And the SW United States is not the only place where we have Indian reservations. There is a need for missionaries to all of these areas! We have a missionary working in Michigan with an Indian tribe.

    I got to meet the Corleys or a team member of theirs once in college. First time I'd ever really thought about that particular need. They are a great group!

    There is another IFB missionary based out of Flagstaff AZ....I cannot recall his name right now, and I am at work.

    We have several that we support, since we are on the edge of 3 reservations here.

    dcorbett, isn't there an independent Bible work there in Cortez. They used to have a small Bible Institute there - used to be run by a Mr. Art Norris.

    To the point - I've heard that the Navajo are one of the most evangelized people. There are many tribes/reservations as have been mentioned.

    The mission I mentioned in Cortez assisted in a Navajo mission being set up that sends teams to other reservations with the Gospel.

    I will have to ask - I became active in church about 6 years ago after rededicating my life to Christ. Before that, I didn't know anything or anybody around here that had to do with the Gospel. I was contacted recently by a missionary to the Navajo people ref: an organ that we have retired from our church.

    But I will ask. I do of Mr Norris, but I don't know if he is still alive...he would be or is 90.

    Johnny V,
    I was considering the NE corner of Arizona. There are about 3 or 4 towns of 5000 or more that have no Bible preaching church--no Baptist Church within 25 miles! Check it out!

    Ooooh, and that is close to Colorado City, which is the dangerous fundamental Mormon town where they have all the polygamists....read up before you venture there!!!
