prairwarur: Rich Mullins has inspired me since the first time I heard one of his songs over 30 years ago. He was tragically killed in a car crash in 1997.
For those who are interested in hearing about this phenomenal young man, I have attached a link to Wiki. What that article doesn't include is that when they went to Rich's small hut in the reservation they found only beds for sleeping, a table and chairs, and a piano that he used to write. Someone donated clothing appropriate for his funeral.
This may not seem like such a big deal to some, but considering only one song composed by Rich, "Our God Is An Awesome God", made him millions, not counting the hundreds of other songs he wrote, his worldly remains left behind serve to prove that he gave that money over to God's Kingdom and purpose. The main purpose was to build schools on the Indian Reservation where he lived and taught music.
After graduation, he and Mitch McVicker moved to a Navajo reservation in Tse Bonito, New Mexico to teach music to children. Rich and McVicker lived in a small hogan on the reservation until Mullin's death in 1997.
In 1996, at the Ichthus music festival, Mullins cited personal reasons for his move. He was asked if he made the move because God had called him to proselytize and convert the Native Americans. To this Mullins responded, "No. I think I just got tired of a White, Evangelical, middle class perspective on God, and I thought I would have more luck finding Christ among the Pagan Navajos. I'm teaching music."

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
