Dear Faithful Friend and Ministry Partner,
The DeGarmo family so appreciates the faithful support that you continue to supply. Your prayers, financial contributions, and notes of encouragement mean more than we can describe.
This note updates you on an important decision that we have made. David has submitted his resignation as President to the American Indian College Board of Regents, effective May 31, 2013. To serve in this capacity has truly been an honor.
However, please know that we continue to serve as nationally appointed U.S. Missionaries to Native Americans. Our passion to reach America, the nation’s third largest mission field, remains strong. Currently, we are prayerfully considering our next assignment. We hope to make an announcement within the next two to three months.
Please pray with us and for us. We anticipate taking several weeks for a mini-sabbatical. With the loss of our beloved son, Gregory, and heavy ministry pressures this year, our emotional and physical resources require some time to rest in the Lord.
Thanks, again, for your continued generosity. When we are released to share the direction of our new ministry, we sincerely believe that you will want to partner with us.
In the Lord’s Service,
David and Ruth DeGarmo
