On January 28, Ruth and I attended the eightieth birthday celebration for Rev. Rodger Cree. Brother Cree (Mohawk) has provided outstanding leadership for decades. An entire generation of Native American leaders bear the imprint of his influence. What a legacy!
On February 4, we will say farewell to Rev. Alma Thomas, who passed away at the age of ninety. Sister Thomas, along with her husband Lonnie, served at American Indian College at its inception. Lonnie went to his reward several years ago. Alma was a small, frail looking woman, but was mighty in the Lord. Today, at AIC, we stand on her broad shoulders. Again, what a legacy!
But I am pleased to say that American Indian College continues to commission empowered leaders to follow in the example of Rodger Cree and Alma Thomas. Your prayer support and prayers make a difference. Thank you!
