Help write our Minnesota story — and celebrate our first anniversary!

by Emily McFarlan Miller

UPDATE (May 20, 2012): Praise God! Our trip to the White Earth Reservation in Minnesota already is fully funded! But we still could use your prayers. Click through the links below to learn more about our mission, or comment below with questions about how you can be praying. Miigwech (thank you)!

I’ve written before about how God can use your life story. And I’ve written before about how growing up spending summers at my family’s cabin near the St. Croix Chippewa Reservation in Wisconsin foreshadowed my involvement with the Chippewa of the White Earth Reservation in Minnesota. My friends and I founded a nonprofit there about 10 years ago. It’s called Hope for the First Nations.

Here’s the part of the story where God does something awesome.

Because Joel and I need to raise $1,500 in, oh, two weeks to travel June 2 to 9 to the White Earth Reservation in Minnesota to work with Hope for the First Nations. And we believe if He wants us to go, He’ll make it happen.

{Click here to learn more about our summer trip to White Earth.} It’s where you can consider how God can use you in the story. And where you can contribute money (tax-deductible) or prayers to help us go.

I can’t wait to tell the story God already is writing this summer on the reservation!

Publish his glorious deeds among the nations.
Tell everyone about the amazing things he does.
Psalm 96:3 (NLT)

(Oh, and if you need another reason to give… next week is our first wedding anniversary. Isn’t that worth celebrating?)
