Pete and Kim Kemp reaching out to the Native Americans of Arizona for Christ
NEWS: Praise God in the summer of 2021 we have been able to greet Mission Teams again and we are the better for it. These teams have enabled us to host Family Night at WMACC and there was sweet fellowship that we all experienced. A bit of renovation has taken place at the church in addition to Family Nights to help us make better use of the building. This July my mother of 82 years of age went to be with Jesus. She lived a life of service to our Lord that gave her a sense of purpose. Those she served at WMACC knew her as grandma. It was her care and concern that won her their love. She prayed for them and they treasured her prayers for it showed them the love they didn't find in other people. She will be greatly missed but our prayer is that her legacy will continue to the glory of God!
PRAYERS: Praise is due God for growing the body at WMACC in the ways they are committed to their faith and the body of Christ. Praise for a team of leaders at WMACC, White and Native American who are devoted to serving the Lord. Prayers that we as leaders and followers allow the Holy Spirit to help us fight the spiritual battles. Prayers that we use this restart that COVID brought us to continue to evaluate and change what needs changing! Prayers for this country. Prayers for the church as a whole that we are willing to live differently than the world otherwise why would the world want to know God!
THY WILL MINISTRIES: If you have never met us, we are Pete, Kim and Butterfly Kemp. We have been serving the LORD full time since 1998. We love the Apache people God has called us to as our own and are blessed to be called family by many of them. We seek to share life and faith with our Apache friends so that they may come to know God as their source for everything. We continually seek any and every avenue for presenting the Gospel. We are part of a team that started the first Christian Church on the White Mountain Apache Indian Reservation. We have been holding services since June of 2004. GOD has blessed us in more ways than we have room to share! We have been privileged to raise a beautiful Apache girl named Butterfly since she was a baby. She became a Kemp in 2017. Butterfly turned 14 in May and looks much older than that. It is so hard to imagine she is in high school. Being kids at heart Pete and I enjoy learning and growing with Butterfly. We consider it a privilege to share life with her and take very serious the job as parents to teach her the Word and more importantly, by example, how to live out God's Word. She is already a huge impact on her native people and we rejoice in that!
