The  Surface Problems

Native People still have the highest rates of:
  • Alcoholism & drug abuse (& FAS in kids)
  • Domestic violence & sexual abuse
  • Suicides
  • Living at poverty level
  • Early death from treatable diseases

After all the chemical dependency counseling provided on the reservations and to urban Natives over many years, the statistics have not significantly changed for the better.  This is because the root issue is not being addressed.

The Real Root Issue
Like an iceberg, the surface problems are just the tip :  the underlying first-cause issue, we believe, is UNRESOLVED PAIN.
The historic trauma  of the past conquest of Native People deeply affected them, as it would (and has) anyone.  

The ill effects of unresolved pain pass down generations, undermining any  healthy sense of identity and self-worth. And until that pain is resolved and its effects addressed, it will continue to produce those surface problems.

PAIN

The  Lasting  Solution
     
So how is deeply ingrained pain resolved ?

We have found that engaging in a process of
            Praying Through Your Life Story 
with a trained, experienced  minister who understands the effects of past abuse and the transforming work of The Healer of the Borkenhearted, Jesus Christ, can address and resolve the pain and its affects held in our memories and damaged emotions.

"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds" (Psalm 147:3).  
Praying Through Your Life Story
Everyone's life is a Story : a tale of real experiences with up's and down's, inspiring chapters but also painful episodes.   And it is the painful events especially that leave their mark and do damage to us.

We've found that a process of "walking" through your Life Story, listening and praying through the painful, traumatic life events, can bring 
healing of debilitating memories and emotional pain.  After all, the Creator understands us thoroughly and knows how to heal what's been damaged.  Jesus truly is The Healer of the Brokenhearted  (Luke 4:18).

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves those crushed in spirit                                                                                                                                                (Ps 34:18) 

   Listen to Jesus' invitation to you:​   
 
Come to Me, all you who are weighed down and weary,
and I will give you rest.  
Join up with Me and get to know Me,
for I'm gentle and humble in heart,
and  you will find true rest for your soul.

(Matthew  11:28)
