Every summer near Vanderwagon, New Mexico, the Broken Arrow Bible Ranch springs to life. Reaching out to hundreds of Native Indian children in the name of Christ, Broken Arrow coordinates weekly summer camp programs that have provided a safe “home away from home” for decades.
Ruth Douglas has served the Lord for over 50 years as a missionary service under the auspices of the United Indian Mission (UIM). Ruth (aka Princess Little Feather) is of Cherokee descent. She ministers to children and youth at the Broken Arrow Bible Ranch overseeing Bible Clubs and the Summer Camping program. She also teaches more than 90 girls (ages 8-12) at Fort Wingate Boarding School. Ruth travels to the Zuni Reservation and conducts Home Bible Studies there.
Boehm’s Church takes up a monthly offering every second Sunday to support Ruth Douglas’ ministry. Several members have traveled to BABR over the years to serve as a volunteer, including one member who volunteers there for two months each summer.
