Del & Colleen Abbey – Charlos Heights, Sula, & Jackson, MT

Posted in: Prayer Spotlight
Date: February 20, 2019

We have the privilege of serving three little churches in rural Montana: Charlos Heights, Sula and Jackson. Only one of our churches is in an actual town with a population of 14. Charlos Heights is between Hamilton and Darby, surrounded Rocky Mountains on the west and the Sapphire range on the east. This area has become mainly a retirement area since the timber industry closed.  Sula is at the south end of the Bitterroot Valley. It is about 30 miles south of Charlos Heights. Sula is a bit more remote, and is mainly retired, but it is home to a vibrant Christian community. Jackson is 84 miles from Charlos Heights and is in the Big Hole Basin, a beautiful wide valley surrounded by the Pintlar, Pioneer and Bitterroot Mountains.  It is mostly a ranching community with some big ranches. The people are hardy, tough and independent. Winter temps often dip below 40 degrees below zero (a relative of mine in this area once had her thermometer freeze at -60).
PRAYER REQUESTS: Pray that God would send young couples and children to our Charlos and Sula churches. Pray for safety as we travel. An average Sunday requires 225 miles of travel, and in the winter, it gets a bit dicey at times. Pray for continued growth and a passion for the lost. Pray that God would establish the Jackson church with strength, and that it would grow to the place where it could support a Village Missionary.
