Summer 2016 Missions Update: Native American Ministry in Cass Lake, MN. | Center for Indian Ministries


Hello to our dear support team! May you be blessed by this coming of autumn weather, back-to-school excitement, and the chilly nights ahead. 

PRAISE HIM
We praise God for giving us a lovely summer! Thank you for being with us in prayer for some big milestones! 

PRAYER POINTS
  • Keep praying for Amy's autoimmune healing. She is now fully on the Autoimmune Protocol which includes an elimination diet, among other facets. This is very difficult to manage while feeding the troops all the normal things, and having much more to take care of now! 

  • Pray for the kids as we venture into a first year of homeschooling Kindergarten for Cody, who just turned 5! 
  • Jesse is nearing the big 3, pray intentionally for us and him as we parent this special boy. 
  • Anna, a fast-climbing one-year-old is a joy, and we also ask for God's guidance in our raising her. 
  • Tim and Amy are both excited to  welcome the new students to Mokahum Ministry Center, who begin orientation and then school after Labor Day. 
  • Lastly, please pray for our family as we are involved with certain native families with whom we want to keep building trust and friendships deeper




With His Love,  
Tim and Amy Kastenbauer 😊

Give us a call or send a note. We'd love to hear from you!

You can find more information about our ministry at Mokahum Ministry Center's Website and at the Oak Hills Center for Indian Ministries website.

Happy Birthday, baby boy! | Titus is one

Last year, just after midnight on the morning of Mother's day, this little tyke was born to us! He was a mere 7 pound, 10 ounce baby with fuzzy hair, puffy eyes, and just a perfectly strong boy. He has elfin charm paired with tender kisses. The strawberry blonde fuzz continues to grow up and out, a lighter shade today. We most often find him wanting (whining) to be held, or seeking mischief. He already wants to do what C, J, and A are into... and it causes him many tumbles and tears when he can't keep up or isn't allowed to participate.

We are celebrating this mini man today, on his first birthday! Happy Birthday Titus Andrew!
















Homeschool Plans 2017-2018, First Grade and Pre-K Boys | Homeschooling with Truth, Beauty, Goodness

I would like to share with you our plans for our homeschool this year. Codeman is in First grade, while Jesse is an official Pre-K dude. Anna is a wannabee brother and underfoot helper and Titus. He's three months old. Whooofta. I'd just like to repeat that again. Whooooooooofta.

I have read many books, blogs, and journals on the topic of education. Home education, and to be even more specific, sources regarding Classical Education and Charlotte Mason. I truly enjoy these topics and the sources. I am intrigued, and so I continue reading and have now found myself following and chatting with several homeschool moms online in addition to my local and Colorado friends who homeschool. Tim and I were both homeschooled, although my window of homeschooling was only 4 years, I glean much from my mom and Tim's mom. As some podcasts I've listened to refer to us, we are second-generation homeschoolers :) Haha! Well, it helps give me perspective on quality literature and publisher…

Happy New Year 2018! | Family Life, Health, and Commitments.

New Year, New Energy
The sun stays up a few moments more every day now. The cold, hard and dark of late Autumn and into winter is always a challenge for me. It's like they're calling out to me: "you're tired," "you're weary" and they howl threats to take away my joy. As I see the days growing longer again, I get a rejuvenation as I get to see the turn of the calendar, too. The howls seem farther behind now. They're not creeping around my doors anymore. Winter is in a frosty, forward thrust here in Minnesota, and as I watch the sun rise up over the trees, witness the special still and clear mornings of a hoar frost, or see a bright halo around the sun... these each show me it is still cold. But, my spirits are brighter.

Ordering my priorities. Saying No, gives me more Yes time.   When we finished our ministry serving as Missionaries with Oak Hills Center for Indian Ministries after August, our commitments were able to level out to a seasonable p…
