The Haskell Military Color Guard have been having an Auction on the 2nd Wednesday in May for several years. This year, they wanted to hold it close to the Haskell Indian Nations University campus. Some of these Veterans asked Bob Prue (Rosebud Sioux, Haskell LIGHT Ministry Leader) if they could use the Haskell LIGHT building. Always looking for ways to connect with the Haskell and Lawrence community, Bob enthusiastically granted their request.
Sometimes the evil one seems to be exploiting every human weakness. Evil seems to be manifest everywhere in our world. But there is Good News!
The power of the world controlled by Satan was defeated when Jesus accepted His Father’s will to go to the cross. He defeated sin and death, but He had to pay a horrible price. It was not an easy walk Jesus took from the gates of Jerusalem to the cross.
I had a cellmate who saw me. His name was Aaron, and, for several months, I despised him. He was always speaking to me about this white man named Jesus. Just the name made me angry. He would tell me Jesus loved me and wanted to give me this free gift of Salvation. I told him over and over again that this heavenly father of his would never give me any free gift.
Within a few months, much to my relief, Aaron was transferred out of my cell. My mind could finally rest. But, it didn’t. I kept returning to his words. Soon, Aaron was transferred back into my room. In our time apart, my heart was softened toward him, and I welcomed his words, words I had hungered for.
For Lutheran Indian Ministries staff member Bob Prue (Rosebud Sioux), and his wife Deon, this is a year of fresh starts and new beginnings. In June, Bob became LIM’s Ministry Leader at the Haskell LIGHT House in Lawrence, Kansas. We are excited that God has led Bob to accept the challenges of this important ministry opportunity! And in July, Bob and Deon became parents to their 3rd child (and first girl), Marlee Grace. Praise God!
Bob announced. "This is new for us, and we are going where the Lord leads us. We're open to all the help we can get!"
