Proverbs 16:3 NIV
Mike was born in Tombstone Arizona and grew up loving the cowboy culture. He spent most of his time however, in Flagstaff, Arizona playing sports, hunting and fishing. His time in Flagstaff is what gave him a burden for the First Nation people. Most of his friends were either Navajo or Hopi and he came to love them and their culture. He gave his life to Christ towards the end of his senior year in high school.
Sharon is a second generation missionary. She was born on the San Carlos Apache reservation to missionary parents. She grew up, in her young childhood, speaking Apache. She gave her heart to Jesus at a very young age. She is the reading and craft lady at the Tuba City First Baptist Church.
Mike and Sharon married in 1975 (Sharon sold a horse and saddle to help pay for their wedding) and grew in their call to the first nation people. Mike has lived and loved the cowboy culture throughout his life. He has rode bulls, worked on various ranches and enjoys team roping and working cow horse competitions.
Mike and Sharon feel they are called to the nations, the First Nation people. They are pastoring on the Navajo Nation, but reach out to the Hopi, Piuate, Apache, Ute, Lakota, Shoshone.
"Much of our connection with the native people is through our Line Rider horse program. We teach people to ride, teach them horsemanship skills, how to over come learned fears, train and shoe their horses and rodeo events. It's on the trail rides, is where we really get to know these great historical people andnd build relationships with them. We do not charge them anything, it's all free. As missionaries life can be tough, low finances, distrust towards the white missionary, but evening can be overcome by the love of Jesus. If missionary work with these people was easy, everyone would be doing it. It's not easy, sometimes you can great for your life. But our Father called a cowboy from the town too tough to die, Tombstone.
