My wife and I are missionaries on the Spirit Lake Nation in North Central North Dakota. We are co-directors of the Spirit Lake Ministry. Our Ministry reaches out to the peoples of the Spirit Lake Nation and the surrounding area. We host work teams in the summer and provide worship services for all ages throughout the year.
We love people.
We have three dogs and two cats. Our dogs are Chipin, a 5 year old Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher mix and Faith, a 2 year old Australian Shepherd and Hope a 1 year old Australian Shepherd. The two cats are "Warehouse" cats and live outside in the summer.
We have yet to boondocks.

Amazing people. They open their place and their life to others. Great place to stay. They are always doing for others. You can help as much as you want. Plenty of room to relax and gather your self. Lots of walking places. Hopefully I will be able to go back next year.
Arrived as boondockers, left as friends. We drove into a beehive of activity assisting a needy community with whatever they need from home repairs to handicap ramps and anything in between. We were invited to join their group of energetic volunteers and treated like family including meal invitations and campfire time. These folks are the most selfless giving people I have ever met. We actually stayed an extra day and are planning a return visit. Go out of your way to seek out this place. We promise a great experience and new friends.
Although I had previously responded, I am happy to do so again. This couple are involved in a very ambitious project involving young people brought in to assist those in need in the community.
A very friendly and warm stay.
We had only expected to lay low for a couple days at this stop. What we found was something completely different. 45 willing volunteers out in the local community doing volunteer work for the local tribal reservation and the community at large. All of this headed up by pastor mikfkowers and his wonderful wife. Meeting such a group of people was lifechanging. We volunteered for some fix up work around the camp area and were rewarded with friendship at every turn. If you are so inclined, this is a great place to stay for a day or a week. Great people!
