Native American Youth“The real story now is young people having been transformed by an encounter with Jesus Christ, now going back to all those reservations and reserves in Native communities across North America. Now these young people are going to be warriors for their generation and their people. They desperately need the prayers of God’s people.”

Summer of Hope 2008 began on July 10 with two teams of Native American and First Nations youth bringing the Gospel of Christ to Native communities all over North America. According to Mission Network News (MNN), about 50 Native youth will travel with On Eagles Wings and Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, after attending training and a Warrior Leadership Summit called “Breaking Free.”

Hutchcraft said the 700 Native Youth that attended the Warrior Leadership Summit was amazing as “such a large gathering of native youth in the name of Jesus Christ is almost unheard of.”

“The words you heard over and over again,” he said, “were ‘I am not alone. I thought I was alone.’ If you are a Native young Christian, you may be the only one like you. And imagine to walk in and…singing at the top of our lungs, ‘How great is our God, sing with me, how great is our God.’ I tell you, it just brings tears to your eyes.”

One of the seminars youth reportedly participated in during the summit dealt with specific cultural and everyday life issues called Battle Councils. The report states that each warrior received a bracelet made to look like a chain and every time God liberated them from an addiction, an idol, or anything rebellious against Himself, the warriors would tear a chain off the bracelet and throw it on the stage.

“By the time the week was over, the stage was littered with broken chains,” Hutchcraft said. “The real story now is young people having been transformed by an encounter with Jesus Christ, now going back to all those reservations and reserves in Native communities across North America. Now these young people are going to be warriors for their generation and their people. They desperately need the prayers of God’s people.”
