This Saturday we will be heading to El Camino College to share our faith in a gracious, gentle, and respectful way (like we always do), with the great American Indian Community.
The South Bay/Long Beach area, in which we live, has the largest native American population in the entire country.
This is a very difficult people group to reach because Christianity, in their eyes, has created nothing but hardship and trouble for them. (After our last Powwow visit, I pulled all my posts and videos from this blog. I’ll write about that at another time.)
Please pray that our message would be heard and understood.
Meet at Hope Chapel at noon, or meet at us at El Camino College at about 1:15PM.
***Calvary Chapel South Bay has a team going to the Thai New Year Festival in Hollywood on Sunday. If you’d like to join my friend, Tom Nance-Ulrich, then click for more info.
