    When you see a lizard, think of the Turnbos in New Mexico! Jim helps nurture existing churches, and helps start new churches among Native Americans and Hispanics in the Western and Mountain Baptist Associations.

    Updated Prayer Concerns (March 2011):

    1. Pray for Jim and mission team leaders as they cast a fresh vision for new ways mission volunteers can be utilized to share the gospel with Native Americans.
    2. Pray that many partners will commit to serve in unreached communities, seeking out persons of peace through whom new churches can be planted.
