The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.

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!
