During this pandemic crisis on the Navajo Nation, relief supplies were delivered to the Navajo House of Fellowship area on Friday, May 22.
Nihitaa’ Binaanish, Our Father’s Busines volunteers worked with Operation Bandana NM and White Rock Presbyterian Church to deliver a truckload of food, water, cleaning supplies, facemasks, hygiene supplies and most of all, the LOVE OF CHRIST to 13 families near Bread Springs. Operation Bandana gave Nihitaa’ Binaanish a full pickup load of items donated at their Los Alamos drop off site at Pueblo Gym. Volunteers from White Rock Presbyterian Church helped Operation Bandana load up all the remaining items and provided four of the five vehicles and drivers who transported and unloaded the donations at the Santa Fe Convention Center. Once all the donations came into the Santa Fe Convention Center, they were loaded up on National Guard trucks and taken to the Navajo Nation.
Families at Bread Springs received items through Fred and Lorraine Thomas who picked the goods up from Jennifer and Ken Holmes in a mall parking lot in Albuquerque. Lorraine reported that all the families were so thankful, some of whom were hosting two funerals. Pray that Fred and Lorraine’s work of mentoring people in need to live a life of dignity will continue and thrive during this pandemic.
Pastor Fred’s word for today: Hebrews 13:2 "Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it."
