Fellowship of Native American Christians (FoNAC), the Southern Baptist Convention’s (SBC) Native American fellowship group, has helped raise thousands of dollars toward the purchasing of 150 containers, each holding 275 gallons of water, for the Navajo and Hopi tribes in the deserts of Arizona.
According to the Biblical Record, Jordan Kanuho, president of FoNAC and pastor of Belvin Baptist Church in Okmulgee, Okla., set a fundraising goal of $10,000, to help tribes access water during the Covid-19 pandemic.
He says fundraising efforts were “a total God thing” and exceeded their expectations.
Kanuho said a large part of the help they received came from the Abilene-Callahan Baptist Association in Texas.
“Once we heard and saw that need, our hearts were stirred during this situation,” Kuhano said.
Kanuho said FoNAC began receiving further donations toward the clean water project from different churches, pastors, and state Baptist conventions. The full amount enabled the purchase of the water containers, which were distributed among the tribes over the past year, with 100 distributed in September 2020 and 50 in February of this year.
