Return to HOPI LAND 2013
PHASE I of the ABMen-USA-Arizona-Hopi Mission was a success. We completed many projects and established many new relationships. Our work improved the ability for Sunlight Community Church to better serve the community of Second Mesa, AZ. I can’t thank the volunteers enough for the dedication to task, professionalism of the work and the loving and caring attitude toward the Hopi community. You did make a difference in the lives of many.
PHASE II is now in the planning stages. The estimated start date is Monday, April 8, 2013. It is anticipated to last at least three weeks. Requests for volunteer registrations will be posted soon. The start date depends on how soon we can reach our funding goal, estimated to be $25, 000 to $30,000. The project includes refurbishing the basketball court with concrete repair, new lighting, erecting new backboards and a fence to secure the area. We will also be erecting a two story multi-purpose building to be used for the youth and others in the community with various needs. A new septic system is also planned and we will expand and improve the playground area. Other mini-projects at the church complex and surrounding area will also be addressed.
Please be in prayer about your participation in this Mission for the Hopi Indians. They are very deserving of the improvements we can make in their daily lives. Please consider how you can help fund this project. Ask your church to add the “ABMen-USA-Hopi Mission” to your budget for next year. Gospel sings, yard sales, hot dog sales and special offerings are other good ways to raise funds. Offerings collected during the Annual ABMen Prayer Breakfast scheduled for February 23, 2012 could be designated to this project. If you wish to donate to this Mission Project using a credit card, go to our website, www.abmen.org and “click” on “DONATIONS” and follow the prompts to donate to “HOPI”. Checks should be made to “ABMen-USA-HOPI” and mailed to ABMen-USA, PO Box 1019, Parkersburg, WV 26102.
Please pray for the HOPI people and for this ABMen-USA-HOPI-Mission. Pray for the funding to be supplied quickly. Pray for the safety of those who volunteer for this Mission. Pray for the lives of the Hopi people to be positively influenced and improved by those who volunteer to be the “hands and feet of Christ” to proclaim the Gospel in deed and word.
