tribal rescue ministries

    For over four decades, Craig and LaDonna Smith have been bringing the hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ to people across North America and around the world.

    Their lives were changed dramatically in June, 2009 when they were involved in an near fatal auto accident in northern New Mexico. 

    LaDonna suffered a C-1 neck fracture, which in most instances is fatal, or, if survived, results in total paralysis.  The fact that she is walking and suffers minor effects can only be attributed to the grace and power of God.

    Craig suffered injuries that took him right through death’s door. After being resuscitated and airlifted to a Level One Trauma Center in Albuquerque, he clung to life for several months. 

     After being in a drug induced coma for almost two months, and twenty-two surgeries later, Craig has been in a long healing process that continues to this day.  He continues to be primarily confined to a wheelchair and walks on a limited basis with supportive devices.  His rehabilitation has been so remarkable, he was honored with the 2013 Arizona “Rehabilitant of the Year” award on May 14, 2013 at an award banquet in Phoenix, Arizona.

    Craig’s limitation is only physical, though.  As Craig and LaDonna continue their healing journey they continue to share the hope that they have found through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, be it at a physical therapy gym, hospital, or in a cathedral.   

    Their mission’s mandate, reaching the lost in our tribes and helping everyday believers become everyday spiritual rescuers in their tribes, explains clearly their passion to both be light in a dark world, and help equip others to be a light in the places God has sovereignly placed them in.
