“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light”(1 Peter 2:9). Bob Prue (Rosebud Sioux) and his wife, Deon, share their life experiences and how the Lord called them out of a hurtful lifestyle through the power of the Gospel. Their story reflects some of the ways our Native peoples—and people everywhere—become entangled in drugs and alcohol abuse, resulting in brokenness and despair for individuals, families and communities.
By the end of their story, we believe you will rejoice with Bob and Deon and give thanks to God for calling them into His marvelous light—the light of Christ. We encourage you to keep them in your prayers as Bob continues his theological studies while serving the Native community in Oneida, Wisconsin, and beyond.
