It’s easy for Native American Christians to feel alone. After all, only four percent of Native people know Jesus. That’s why the On Eagles’ Wings annual winter retreat is so special.
Several Native young men and women gathered at the On Eagles’ Wings winter retreat from December 28 to January 2 for worship and fellowship. Brad Hutchcraft with Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, the parent ministry of On Eagles’ Wings says, “For them to come together and be able to be strengthened together…at this retreat, it’s huge because it sets them on a course for the rest of the year.”
Everyone there was previously with the On Eagles’ Wings summer missions team where they traveled to Native communities and shared the Gospel. Hutchcraft estimates about 80 percent of the summer team returned for the winter retreat.
“After spending the whole summer basically just going, going, going — loading the bus and doing these events and all the team meetings and everything — they just get to come together and be together. It’s kind of a mini family reunion.”
These Native warriors have amazing hope stories of how Jesus changed their lives. Hutchcraft says it was a blessing to look around the room at the winter retreat and see evidence of God’s goodness.
