Marvin Johnson III, Teresa Sherwood & Michelle are members of Compassion Ministries
at Church for the Nations - Flagstaff. They’re serving heart-smiles straight from the heart of God to a group of children.
They prepared & served Thanksgiving dinner to the kids and staff at NAOMI House. This is a special home where children who’ve fallen on hard times get to know God’s Love in special ways.
For a few hours the children enjoyed a bounce house, games, good food, lot’s of smiles and prayer.
It was a beautiful collaborative effort by cftn.flagstaff, Sunshine Rescue Mission, Compassion Ministries & YWAP.
(FYI - We’re going back to paint the children’s rooms on Dec. 5 if you’re interested.) 716-830-8240

We are told that it takes a village to raise a child. However, when a child has been abused and wounded, it takes more than just one village—it takes many. NAOMI is one small village, working with many others to help hurt children recover from child abuse.
Native American children suffer from abuse at one of the most alarming rates in our country. Child Sexual abuse in Native America is both epidemic and holocaustic. 90% of the children that come to live at Naomi House are the victims of child molestation.
My heart's desire, and the reason NAOMI exists, is to share the healing love of Jesus Christ, with hurting children that desperately need His healing touch. NAOMI was established as a non-profit home for abused and neglected Native American children and we moved into our present home in January of 1995.
We strive to maintain an atmosphere that not only looks like home but also feels like home. We are a family. For the sake of the children, we avoid all appearances of institution and endeavor to be as culturally appropriate as possible.
Meeting the diverse and complicated needs of sexually abused children as soon as they have been hurt enables them to heal and come to terms with their abuse. We aspire to help end child molestation one child at a time, by removing wounded children from the vicious cycle that led to their abuse.
N.A.O.M.I. is a non-denominational Christian Ministry. We minister primarily to Native American Children and their families. Our main thrust of ministry is the Children's Home we operate in Joseph City, Arizona.
