Former Brainerd Indian School Student Tells Story of Redemption

December 2, 2009 · Filed under Blog

Guideposts magazine recently featured an inspiring story by Darrell New Plenty Stars, a former Brainerd Indian School student from Pine Ridge, South Dakota.  In the article entitled Remade“, Darrell tells of the pain and struggles of his life, and how he ran from God.

But his life changed forever one bitterly cold December night when his friends came over.  They planned to get drunk and then go outside to shoot their guns.  God had something else in mind when he sent one of Darrell’s former Brainerd teachers, Rev. Ellis Burchfield, to knock at the door.
