Helping Rev. Rikki & John Perkins Following Devastating House Fire

In the following blog post, you’ll find links for how you can help support John and Rikki.

First Nations Monday

My dear friend, mentor, ministry partner and co-pastor of All Nation’s Fellowship, Rikki and her husband John, lost their home yesterday (August 18, 2018) in a fire. The fire took their home, all the belongings in their home, their two cats, Rikki’s father’s workshop, all of his tools, some farm equipment, as well as the hay that had been harvested over the summer.

You may also know Rikki through her role as the chaplain for the Montana State Chapter of the Missing In America Project (MIAP), as well as her work through First Nations Monday.

Among the many irreplaceable, sentimental items and heirlooms lost, Rikki also lost her regalia, professional dresses and meaningful accessories and tools used in her role as a MIAP chaplain and minister, as well as her collection of music CDs, books, DVDs, and gifts representing her many years serving in American Indian ministry.

On February 25, 2017 I was blessed to have been interviewed by Kyle Taylor, Office of Student Life and Enrollment Management Retention Specialist at Bacone College regarding my participation in the online American Indian Ministry Program. The interview video is available on Facebook at this URL: VIDEO .

After nearly 20 years in American Indian Ministry and even longer as a Believer, I have found the education through this program to be of tremendous value.

The classes are available on campus and online utilizing Zoom as a virtual classroom. The Director of the American Indian Ministry Program is Dr. Leroy Thompson.
