Internment - Free Trinity Navajo Mission, Toh-La-Kai,
Rev. Dennis and Marie Gardner began a work in 1975 that has impacted
literally hundreds of people in New Mexico. God has received both of
them to their eternal rewards and we sincerely miss them. We pray Godís
blessing and comfort on their families.
However, Godís work goes on! Sis. Wesaw, a Navajo holiness lady, has
been a friend of the Gardners for quite some time and is helping us with
preaching and taking care of the good people there.
Just a few weeks ago, the Mission board traveled to be there and spent
time planning for future years of ministry in this great work. They also
worked on various projects that needed done, like replacing waste oil
burners in the furnaces with new fuel oil burners, giving them a
thorough cleaning and setting them up for cleaner operation with the
help of Roger Russell, the man
who originally installed them. Thermostats and zoning valves still need
reworked and we do have a man scheduled to do that soon.
Mission Board also met for elections with these results:
Dennis Gardner, Jr. President,
Rev. Andy Cooley Senior Vice President, Garland Hall Secretary,
Rev. Cliff Sarver and
Caleb Kaufman as directors.
It is a delight to work together with men who carry on the same vision
as our founder had. There are great days ahead.
are extremely thankful for the help that Caleb and Denise
(grand-daughter of Bro. Gardner) Kaufman provide at the mission. They
are an intricate part of the mission and general oversight of
activities. They help with the song leading, playing the piano, and
special music in the services. Their interest is to work with the Navajo
The support for the mission is provided by people who have a compassion
for souls and especially the Navajo people. It is a faith ministry. Your
continued giving is much appreciated and is necessary for the continued
work among the people of this area.
We, as a board, ask for your prayers as we endeavor to fulfill the
original purpose of the work.

The mission was established in 1975.
The sole purpose for the mission is to preach the gospel of
"Jesus Christ" to the Navajo people. These are "OUR" people
and we love each of them. Pray with us that their souls may be
saved before the Lord's soon return.
We started in the town of Gamerco, NM. This is located between
Gallup and the Indian reservation on highway 491 about 3 miles north of
Gallup. In 1976, we purchased the land where the mission compound is
now located. Through the years the Lord has helped us reach out
into the reservation and learn the Navajo people. The mission has
a church, school, garage and housing for the staff.
The mission established outreach missions in Sheep Springs, about 50
miles north, and at Winslow, AZ. Sis. Long, a native
Navajo lady, has been a great help teaching and singing with us.
The vans are used to pickup a number of people who can not drive
to the services.
The jail and radio ministries are a vital part of the mission.
These provide us a means to reach many souls that may never attend a
service at one of the mission stations. Pray for us and our Navajo
people. In 1978 we felt the Lord wanted us to spread the gospel over the
air waves and that was when the "New Life Broadcast" was born. We felt
led to go with the station that would air the broadcast from 8:30 to
9:00 AM on Sunday morning every week.
The support for the mission is provided by people who have a
compassion for souls and especially the Navajo people. The work is
a Faith work believing in the word of God and going into the "..whiten
fields of harvest". We believe that we all must work for the "Lord of
the harvest" has commanded us to work until he returns
