WATCH for upcoming changes!

We have spent this year of 2019 furthering our knowledge of how to BEST help the Lakota people, and advance the kingdom of Jesus Christ across the Pine Ridge Reservation.

We have taken the time to deeply study the wonderful book:

We are now prayerfully exploring ongoing works of Development on the Pine Ridge Reservation and in nearby Whiteclay that will bring a greater benefit than we have seen before!

Jesus said in John 15:16, You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.

“go and bear fruit—fruit that will last”

That is what we are about!
