Please join our extended team this year to support the Navajo and Apache Reservations during this pandemic. We partner with three primary organizations each year for our mission trip. Your direct giving to these host ministries can help Share Christ’s Love from Afar by helping to purchase meals and necessary supplies (e.g., masks, gloves, cleaning supplies, hand sanitizers, etc) for those families who need it most.
- Christian Veterinary Mission, which is our parent organization, has opened a Western Navajo Relief Fund - 100% of the donations go to the Navajo Nation.
- Good Shepherd Mission Episcopal Church in Navajoland, our host church and base camp while on the Navajo Nation, is accepting donations online to go towards the Navajo COVID-19 relief.
- Apache Youth Ministries, our host ministry on the Apache reservation, empowers Apache youth to impact their community for Christ and has established a link to join their COVID-19 relief efforts.
If you are crafty, why not consider making face coverings to send to the Native people? Special designs and uplifting messages can provide a small gift of love and hope. Simply mail or deliver the homemade face coverings to the Countryside office and we will take care of the shipment to the reservations.
Through all the turmoil of the last few months and days, we continue to trust in this verse from Joshua 1:9 "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go". We don't understand all that has happened this year or what the future holds, but we trust in the Lord and are praying for His guidance, healing, and humility. With truth and grace, we will be able to move forward in love; building each other up and serving each other.
