Miss Roberta Uible, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Uible, New Vienna, has joined the summer staff of the North American Indian Mission in its 23rd year of outreach to the Indian people of Western Canada, Washington and Alaska.
The heart of he program in which Miss Uible is involved is a widespread Bible school and youth ministry among the Indians, spanning a thousand miles of beautifully rugged, remote country. This summer over 75 college-age student volunteers are carrying the Gospel to Indian villages in the far North.
Miss Uible is responsible for ministering to the Indians in as many ways as possible: through visitation, Vacation Bible School teen-age groups, Sunday services, Bible Classes, youth camping and recreational programs. She must adjust to the customs, habits and outlook of the Indian people before she is able to share her concern for them as individuals.
The North American Indian Mission, an inter-denominational mission with headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, works through resident village missionaries, camping and literature as well as through the Summer Missionary Institute in which Miss Uible is a participant.
I think that NAIM has kept its initials, but has changed what the acronym stands for . . . see: NAIM.
