M-25 Director, Gary Burd, along with his bride, Carolyn have forged a bond with local Montana pastors to reach the great Crow Nation.
On Saturday, Gary along with a cadre of pastors was given the center of the 98th Crow Nation Festival arena. There was a brief explanation of the purpose of a horse giveaway that brought the crowd to the edge of their seats. Anticipation gave way to exclamation as a lovely Native lady was introduced as the recipient of a gorgeous Tobiano Paint Horse (registered American Paint Horse).
“This is an answer to prayer” she proclaimed! “I have wanted a horse for my kids and my prayers are answered”
The recipient’s name is Lorri Oldbull.
Gary Burd conveyed the heart of M-25 Ministry is to bless and touch lives. Partnering with M25 were Mountain Family Fellowship of Helena IPHC, Christian Heritage Church of Amarillo and Living Word Church of Maiden, NC. Also Dr. Russell Stands Over Bull, pastor of Arrowhead Christian Center of Pryor, Mt.( a full-blooded Crow pastor) was instrumental in opening doors for the outreach.
The passion and drive of Gary Burd has once again opened a whole new dimension of ministry for the IPHC.
