Strong Hold Baptist Church Plant

The town of Pinon, AZ is one of the most notorious communities on our reservation.  It’s extremely high crime rates have merited it the nickname, “The Wild West.”  As I researched this area, I discovered headline after headline of violent crimes.  Two headlines I read from June of 2015 reported the arson of 9 school buses that were burned beyond repair and the arrest of a 21 year old young man for murdering a relative in the grocery store parking lot by stabbing him three times.  I read another headline from July of 2015 of a woman being stabbed in the eye.  I have read many horrifying tales that have taken place in this little community.  They have been ravaged by Satan and sin. In light of Pinon’s corrupt state, one might wonder why our family would go.  The answer is simple.  It is God’s choice and desire for our family to go!  My wife and I prayed the day we surrendered to the Navajo that God would send us to do a work in places where if anything good were to happen, God would get the glory.  We asked Him to send us to places where we could witness the moving of His mighty hand in obvious and unexplainable ways!  Pinon is such a place and such an opportunity!

Strong Hold Baptist Church is now a two and a half year old church plant that averages nearly fifty in church every Sunday and has been blessed with two acres and two buildings right off the main BIA Highway entering the community of Pinon.  Praise God for a light in a dark place!

Romans 10:1-2, 21b

Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.  For I bear them record that they have a
zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
  All day long I
have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and
gainsaying people.

I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved.

Bro. Justin Barnett has responded to  thecall of God on his life to be a missionary among the Navajo People.  Bro. Justin was reached through the ministry of our Sending Church, Trinity Baptist Church in Arlington, TX where he was saved, baptized and surrendered to the ministry.  It was not until Bible College after he met his wife that God began to burden his heart for the Navajo People.  Bro. Barnett's wife, Mrs. Tiffany, is a full-blood Navajo who was reached through the ministry of Missionary Mark Haynes.  She was saved and baptized at a young age and followed the Lord's will to attend Bible College where she met Bro. Justin.

The Barnetts are thrilled that God has called them to such an exciting field and are busy about the work of planting their first church in Indian Wells, AZ.  They have already held their first Vacation Bible School, Revival Meeting and are now conducting services in their home to build a people group with which to develop their church plant.  God has blessed them with many souls saved already and they have aquired a church land site from the Tribe and are raising funds to build a building and having a permanent meeting place for their developing congregation.  They will have a great advantage in all of their missions endeavors since Mrs. Barnett is Navajo and since Bro. Justin has already become very accustom to the area!

THE BARNETTS ARE CURRENTLY ON THE FIELD!  While they have arrived, they are still seeking opportunities to increase their support level and would love to come and present the work God has called them to do.  Would you seek the Lord's will concerning your part in the Barnett's ministry?  Perhaps God would have you to support them with your prayers and even financially.  They would love to come and be a blessing by sharing their burden for the Navajo People in your church.  BRO. BARNETT MAY BE CONTACTED AT: (928) 225-7787.
