Crow Relief Trip Summary


A team of fourteen Isaiah 58:12 volunteers traveled to Crow Agency, Montana this past week to complete disaster relief work, after the flooding of the Little Big Horn River.There was much to be done and team members diligently worked 10-12 hour days on multiple job sites.


The first two days, teams tore out old, moldy drywall and flooring and applied bleach and mold inhibitor to kill any existing mold and prevent it from coming back in the future.Over the next few days teams worked on re-flooring, dry-walling and mudding.The people were so grateful that one of the families hosted a dinner in our honor; we were served Indian Tacos, which were delicious!We did not have time to completely finish the homes, but may be returning in mid-October if there are still families in great need.We will keep you updated.


We were invited to attend the Crow Fair celebrationoccurring while we were there, and had the opportunity to watch a traditional dance competition and see the people dressed in full beautiful regalia for the Crow Parade. The Crow, or Apsaalooke Nation, people have a rich culture and history and we were blessed to share in this celebration of their heritage.The opportunity to serve these beautiful people was a great blessing and we would like to thank all those who volunteered, donated, and prayed for this trip.


A special thanks goes out to Lane Simpson of the Crow Nation, for working with us to put the trip together and for driving over 1,000 miles on multiple trips to Billings to pick up all the supplies we needed.We also want to thank Father Charles and Sister Loretta for letting our team stay at the St. Dennis Catholic Church, as well as the White Clays for hosting a wonderful dinner for us.


Thanks Again & God Bless,


The Isaiah 58:12 Team
