June serves Lummi Nation and others who live and work among the tribe. Lummi is located 100 miles north of Seattle, near Bellingham, WA, and 20 miles south of the Canadian border. Her intention is to be an example of God’s love and grace.
June’s focus is to be an instrument of spiritual reconciliation, presenting Jesus as the reconciler between God and people. She attempts to be a clear reflection of Jesus as she walks alongside those in the Lummi community. June disciples and mentors people. Bible studies, informal counseling, prayer with and for people, visitation, and a wide variety of acts of service are some of what she involved in. June is a chaplain at the county jail, and follows up with Lummi women after their release. She also serves by assisting people in the community when there is an unexpected death.
June and her late husband, Tom, met working at a church camp in Michigan. They became involved with NAIM through its summer camping program for First Nations youth in British Columbia. A Lummi elder asked them to direct a children’s Bible camp, which has been done annually since 2005.
Unless God leads her differently, June intends to live out her life serving at Lummi. “We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.” 1 Thes. 2:8
