The DeGarmo family has reached a milestone in our ministry; we have completed our tenth academic year as missionaries to Native Americans, assigned to American Indian College (Phoenix, AZ). Your faithful prayer and financial support has made that possible. Words cannot express our gratitude.
A few weeks ago, for the tenth time, we watched a new graduating class commissioned to the place of their calling. They will be teachers, church leaders, community leaders. More importantly, they will be godly women and men, mothers and fathers, followers of Jesus that the Spirit uses to transform their communities.
The Lord continues to bless our family. All three of our children have reached their twenties. Kristin has graduated from Evangel University and Stacey will soon receive her degree from Arizona State University. Gregory is doing well. Ruth, as always, continues to be a blessing to all, and the best wife in the world. Earlier this year we celebrated our 30th anniversary.
We know that we can count on your continued prayers and support. May your life and family be favored by the Lord.
