GLOBAL PARTNERS AROUND THE WORLD
Mel Boerema – Canada First Nations People
Since we, the People of Piikani Lighthouse Fellowship commissioned Doug IronShirt, pastor of our small fellowship on the Piikani Nation of the Blackfoot Confederation, life has changed. Since Sally’s death in November, 2022. I am doing ministry alone. I spend more time concentrating on people within the Piikani First Nation community. With Doug as pastor, he and his wife Laura are taking the lead and more First Nations People are coming to them for spiritual advice. The chief often calls Doug for prayer. I am less visible, but my schedule has not slowed. I spend time being a sounding board for Doug and Laura as they deal with issues common to pastors and unique to our community. Doug and Laura have been used to lead 8 people to faith in Jesus Christ. I am counseling and teaching those who are not seekers but those who deal with seekers. After 45 years of front-line evangelism, it is a little different to be the cheerleader to those doing the evangelism.
Piikani Lighthouse has a reputation within the community as the church that is open to the community and to all people. There are other churches in our community, Pentecostal, Roman Catholic and Anglican, but the official religion of the Nation is the ‘Sun Dance’. The view of Piikani Lighthouse is that we do not teach against other religions, put keep teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. When we see people come to faith in Jesus Christ, they do not come with a background of family who support them. To publicly declare yourself to be a follower of Jesus Christ is to put a barrier between one’s self and family. We have new believers that Doug and Laura are dealing with who are feeling pressure from family because of their faith in Jesus Christ. Doug and Laura are uniquely gifted in dealing with this because when Laura was baptized her family quit talking to her for some time, but now they call her and Doug for prayer and counseling.
