Native speaker to bring message to Coulee Dam church
An American Indian evangelist, singer and songwriter will minister at the Coulee Dam Community Church Sunday, April 1, at 11 a.m.
Morning Sun Yellow Pony, from her home in Montana, has been traveling for eight years with her “Healing Wings Ministries,” with a primary goal “to lift up the First Nation’s people, and all hurting and wounded people,” her press release says.
“If I were to tell you my whole story,” she says, “it would tear your heart out. But I am not my sad story. I am and you are what we choose to do about our sad story. I am able to walk in both worlds to take down the walls between the cultures in the non-Indian world and to take down the walls between the tribes in the Indian world based on, 1Cor 12:12-13.”
That biblical passage addresses the universality of the Christian message across cultures.
Kevin Lind, pastor at the church at 509 Central Drive, said Yellow Pony is traveling to the area to sing at a memorial service for Bill Dugan on Saturday and asked to deliver her message on Sunday.
