Heading to the NAVAJO RESERVATION in Tuba City, Arizona

Ken and Tanja and their younger five are driving out to Tuba City, Arizona. It has been 25 years since Ken started bringing teams from California to serve and share God’s love on the reservation. They joined the great work of missionaries Paul and Ann Ghee. One of the first locals they connected with was a young teen named Eric Kee. Ken was blessed to baptize Eric in the cold Colorado river near the Grand Canyon. Ken remembers he and Paul praying that Eric would one day lead the church here in Tuba City and God answered that prayer. Eric and his wife Tracy live in Tuba City with the children and are full-time ministers with Tuba City Church of Christ. They are supported by the church that Ken and Tanja go to now! Some of the leaders of those mission trips from California as well as one of the “youth” and Ann Ghee will join together to, once again, serve and share in Tuba City with the Kees.

ERIC AND KEN NOW and THEN (25 years ago)


  • Pray that we will be an encouragement to the Kees family and their great ministry there, as well as the other leaders and believers who are part of the church there.

  • Paul Ghee passed away when we were in Albania, this will be our first time to see Ann since then, please pray that we can be a blessing to her as well.

  • Pray for the Shackelfords and others for safe travels to Arizona and back home.

  • Ken will be speaking Sunday morning there, pray that God will speak through him clearly!

  • Pray for the Navajo people, that they will all come to know the love of the Father God for them and the saving power of Jesus.
