You can join the First Nation  Ministries team
in a variety of ways:

1.  Prayer; It is only through the power of God that we will be effective. There are so many obstacles that we can't present them all here. But here are a few things you can pray for:

Food; The salvage food market has a glut of agencies and ministries scrambling for a piece of the pie. Tax law changes in recent years make it far less attractive to  donate surplus food. As a result a large number of salvage businesses have sprung up and they pretty much cornered the market. It is increasingly more difficult for  relief organizations to get free or low priced groceries.

Ask the Lord to open some new pantry doors.

Clothing; We are in need of good quality clothing. It must be clean and without tears, missing buttons, inoperable zippers etc. We are also in need of  Linens, blankets, pillows, etc. These also have to be clean and in good condition.

Those of you in the Portland area can drop off food and clothing items at our office. (For Now we can only deal with non-perishable food items like canned or dry goods) Click the "Contact Us" menu item for our phone number, address and a map link.

2. Financial Support; We welcome and appreciate any financial support that you can offer. You may donate in a couple of ways. Click the "Make a Donation" menu item for options.

3.  Tell others; At present we do not have any publicity funds in our budget. So right now our best hope for growth is 'word of mouth' promotion by friends like yourself. You might also consider talking with your pastor about your congregation supporting this ministry, or perhaps allocating us a small spot or flyer in your bulletin.

4. Miscellaneous; We can also accept donations of various items including Vehicles(We have many co-workers on the reservations who are in dire need of reliable transportation), Appliances, Other Household Items such as Dishes, Detergents and Toiletries, etc. Give us a call to see if it is something we can use. Click the "Contact Us" menu item for our phone number, address and a map link.

A few other things you might consider  donating:



   Of course we can't always make use of all these on the reservations. But, everything not directly given to the Indian peoples will provide for operating revenue to pay for fuel, food, and other expenses. If you do not want it used for other expenses, we won't accept it unless we can use it in accordance with your desires.

You have our promise in this.
