… established Native churches.

As a missionary organization, we regularly report on our evangelistic and church planting efforts.

But what about the Native communities where churches have been established?

… places where the missionaries have moved on and local believers are living out their faith in their families, their work, their worship and fellowship meetings?

In this Northern Lights issue you will meet some of these people and places.

Read these stories and more in our latest Northern Lights magazine online.

NCEM News & Notes for Praise & Prayer

On Tribal Trails in October



Dr. Gary Parker talks about the miracle of life before birth, and the value God places on every human life. He tells how evolutionary theories have resulted in very serious consequences, including abortion.

Bill Jackson teaches from the Bible about redemption. Through illustrations and real-life examples, he explains why redemption matters, and how it relates to Jesus Christ.

Ida Shaw grew up knowing “about” God. She got married and alcohol controlled both her and her husband. For their eight children’s sake she asked God to help her quit her drinking, and was successful, but she still didn’t know Christ personally. One day her husband called long distance to say that he had found someone else. The news broke her heart, and through the ministry of a pastor she made a commitment to Christ.

Ida Shaw shares more about how her broken marriage drove her to seek Christ back in 1984. She then realized that, just as God had forgiven her, there was forgiveness available for her unfaithful husband. From Matthew 5:44, Dr. Emerson Falls teaches what forgiveness is all about in the Christian walk.
