TRIBAL TRAILS
TRIBAL TRAILS THE SON OF GOD
HE IS NEAR HE CHOSE TO WALK WITH US
THESE TRIBAL TRAILS. TRIBAL TRAILS
TRIBAL TRAILS Conrad: BEFORE HE RETURNED TO
HIS FATHER IN HEAVEN, JESUS TALKED TO HIS DISCIPLES
ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT.
HE SAID, “AND WHEN HE HAS COME, HE
WILL CONVICT THE WORLD OF
SIN, AND OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND OF JUDGMENT: OF SIN,
BECAUSE THEY DO NOT BELIEVE
IN ME; OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, BECAUSE I GO TO MY FATHER
AND YOU SEE ME NO MORE; OF JUDGMENT, BECAUSE THE
RULER OF THIS WORLD IS
JUDGED.” HI, I’M GLAD THAT YOU’VE
TUNED INTO TRIBAL TRAILS. OUR GUEST TODAY WILL TELL YOU
IN HISTORY GOD PROVED WHAT HE HAD SAID
ABOUT THE BIBLE IS TRUE. WITHOUT FURTHER DELAY, LET’S
JOIN OUR VISIT WITH RITA AND DAVID KANAKAKEESIC IN ROUND
LAKE, ONTARIO. Rita: DAVID THANK YOU FOR
BEING WITH US TODAY AND
SHARING YOUR TESTIMONY, ABOUT WHAT GOD HAS DONE
IN YOUR LIFE.
David: THANK YOU Rita: AND AH,
MAYBE WE CAN START AH TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT
YOUR EARLIER LIFE HERE IN
ROUND LAKE. David: OK. I MUST HAVE BEEN
AROUND 2 OR 3 YEARS OLD
BACK THEN THERE WAS A PLANE THAT
CIRCLED AROUND THIS PLACE,
LANDED. AND THEN THEY LANDED THE,
AND DOCKED OVER WHERE THE NORTHERN HUDSON BAY
STORE USED TO BE [yah] AND THERE THEY CAME OUT
PEOPLE. THE CHIEF BACK THEN
STARTED TO TALK TO THEM AND AH, AND HE STARTED TO
TALK ABOUT THEM TO THE PEOPLE TELLING THEM THESE ARE
THE AH, MISSIONARIES COMING
TO VISIT AND WE’LL ALLOW THEM. [okay]
AND THEN AH THE SPIRIT OF GOD WORKED
AND THEN THE LORD USED –
THIS CHIEF TO OPEN THE DOOR
IN THIS COMMUNITY, SO
THE GOSPEL CAN BE PREACHED. BUT WHEN THE AH, THE GOSPEL
CAME THIS CHIEF OPENED
THE DOOR AND THEY STARTED TO BUILD
HOUSES, CABINS
AND LOG CABIN CHURCH AND THAT’S WHERE A LOT OF
PEOPLE WENT, ALMOST THE WHOLE
COMMUNITY [okay] CAME. ♪
Narrator: THE LIVING GOD,
WHO MADE HEAVEN AND EARTH, THE SEA, AND
EVERYTHING IN THEM. IN THE PAST HE PERMITTED
ALL THE NATIONS TO
GO THEIR OWN WAYS, BUT HE NEVER LEFT THEM
WITHOUT EVIDENCE OF HIMSELF
AND HIS GOODNESS. David: I DIDN’T SEE IT
HAPPEN, BUT I READ STORIES
AND I HEAR I HEARD PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IT,
WHAT HAPPENED BACK THEN. IT WAS SO INTERESTING, [yah]
THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
WORK IN THEIR LIVES. THE FIRST THING THEY, THEY
DID WAS THEY LOVED TO READ
THE BIBLE. [oh, okay] THEY LOVED TO READ THE BIBLE,
THEY READ THE SCRIPTURE AS THEY READ THE BIBLE WHEN –
CERTAIN PASSAGES OF THE BIBLE
DIDN’T SINK IN. THEY RAN TO THE MISSIONARY
AND ASKED HIM,
“WHAT IS THIS?” AND THE MISSIONARY WOULD
EXPLAIN TO THEM. AND ALSO A LOT PEOPLE HERE
SMOKED A LOT, AND IT WAS
GOOD BUSINESS FOR THE STORE. AND ONCE THEY UNDERSTOOD
THAT, THEY QUIT SMOKING.
[okay] AND THEN THE STORE, I HEARD, IS THEY
SHIPPED ALL THEIR TOBACCO
OUT OF THE COMMUNITY. [ah] Rita: YEP. THAT’S
THE CHANGED LIFE.
David: THAT’S THE CHANGED LIFE AND, AND THAT’S HOW GOD
WORKED. AND THAT’S
WHERE IT BEGAN. Rita: AND YOUR PARENTS CAME
TO KNOW THE LORD DURING
THAT PERIOD? David: MY PARENTS CAME TO
KNOW THE LORD, YES. [yep] YAH AND AH, PLUS AH OTHER
PEOPLE CAME TO KNOW THE LORD Rita: WOULD THAT BE ABOUT THE
SAME TIME AS ALBERT TAIT CAME
TO KNOW THE LORD? David: ABOUT THAT, YEAH. Conrad: THE POWER TO CHANGE,
THAT IS WHAT THE GOSPEL IS
ALL ABOUT! IN ROMANS CHAPTER ONE
THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID, “FOR I AM NOT ASHAMED
OF THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST, FOR IT IS THE POWER OF GOD
TO SALVATION FOR ANYONE
WHO BELIEVES.” ON THE ROAD TO DAMASCUS
THE APOSTLE HAD A PERSONAL
ENCOUNTER WITH CHRIST. HE EXPERIENCED THE POWER OF
GOD. HIS LIFE WAS CHANGED. HE SHARED THAT WITH TIMOTHY.
HE SAID, “AND I THANK CHRIST JESUS OUR
LORD WHO HAS ENABLED ME, BECAUSE HE COUNTED ME
FAITHFUL, PUTTING ME
INTO THE MINISTRY, ALTHOUGH I WAS FORMERLY
A BLASPHEMER, A PERSECUTOR,
AND AN INSOLENT MAN; BUT I OBTAINED MERCY
BECAUSE I DID IT IGNORANTLY
IN UNBELIEF. THIS IS A FAITHFUL SAYING AND
WORTHY OF ALL ACCEPTANCE, THAT CHRIST JESUS CAME INTO
THE WORLD TO SAVE SINNERS,
OF WHOM I AM CHIEF. HOWEVER, FOR THIS REASON
I OBTAINED MERCY, THAT IN ME FIRST JESUS CHRIST
MIGHT SHOW ALL LONGSUFFERING,
AS A PATTERN TO THOSE WHO ARE GOING TO BELIEVE ON
HIM FOR EVERLASTING LIFE.” WE’RE NOT BETTER THAN PAUL.
WE’RE ALL SINNERS. WE NEED CHRIST JESUS TO SAVE
US FROM SIN AND ENABLE US TO LIVE IN WAYS
THAT ARE PLEASING TO GOD. LATER ON OUR GUEST WILL SHARE
MORE ABOUT HOW THE GOSPEL MAKES A
DIFFERENCE IN HIS LIFE. BY THE WAY, IF YOU NEED HELP
TO START YOUR WALK WITH GOD, CALL US. WE’RE GLAD TO HEAR
FROM YOU. ♪
NOT BY MIGHT, NOR BY POWER BUT BY MY SPIRIT SAYETH
THE LORD THAT MOUNTAINS, MOUNTAINS
SHALL BE REMOVED NOT BY MIGHT NOR BY POWER
BUT BY MY SPIRIT
SAYETH THE LORD OF HOSTS THAT MOUNTAINS, THESE
MOUNTAINS MUST COME DOWN HOLY HOLY IS
YOUR NAME SWEET, SWEET IS
YOUR ANOINTING POWERFUL AND LIVING IS
YOUR WORD HOLY SPIRIT BREATHE ON ME
I NEED YOU OH LORD, YOU ESTABLISH
PEACE FOR ME ALL WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED
YOU HAVE DONE FOR US THAT HE WHO IS IN ME
IS GREATER THAN HE WHO IS
IN THE WORLD WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS
THROUGH CHRIST WHO FIRST
LOVED US David: AND THEN AH MY DAD,
MY MOM USED TO SEND ME
TO SUNDAY SCHOOL. SEND US TO SUNDAY SCHOOL
EVEN AH, TO EVENING
BIBLE STUDY. AND WE USED TO MEMORIZE SOME
SCRIPTURES, LIKE JOHN 3:16,
“FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD.” AND THAT I, I LEARNED THAT
AT A YOUNG AGE AND AH, I STILL DO REMEMBER
THAT VERSE TODAY AND, I NEVER FORGET, NEVER
SLIPPED OUT OF MY MIND AND
SO I AH, I STILL HAVE IT. SO THE TIME CAME LATER ON IN
THE YEARS, I AH, CAME TO
UNDERSTAND THE SALVATION ABOUT JESUS DYING FOR ME ON
THE CROSS AND HE FORGAVE ME
ALL MY SINS AND HE CLEANSED ME AND, AND I’M
REDEEMED AND, AND HE MADE ME
TO BE A RIGHTEOUS PERSON. Rita: HOW OLD WERE
YOU THEN, DAVID? David: WHEN I BECAME A
CHRISTIAN I UH I MUST HAVE
BEEN AROUND AH, 21 YEARS OLD. I SPENT MOST OF A YOUNG LIFE
AT RESIDENT NOT MOST OF IT AT
RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL AND THEN LATER ON I MOVED TO,
I LIVED IN TOWNS WORKING
IN DIFFERENT AREAS. I USED TO WORK IN RAILROADS,
IN THE MINE AND EVEN THOUGH I WAS LIVING
IN A WORLD UP, OUT THERE, I STILL REMEMBER ABOUT MY
PARENTS BACK HOME THAT THEY
ARE BELIEVERS. SO YOU KNOW WHEN I THINK
ABOUT THAT I’M SURE MY DAD
AND MY PARENTS PRAYED A LOT FOR ME WHILE I WAS THERE AND
AH I’M SURE THEY DIDN’T JUST
– LEAVE ME THERE TO HANG AROUND THERE AND I, I’M
SURE THEY PRAYED FOR MY
SAFETY AND AH, AND MY ESPECIALLY MY
SALVATION TO KNOW
JESUS CHRIST. SO IT CAME TO THE POINT THAT
THEIR – PRAYERS WAS ANSWERED SO I STAYED HERE OUR PASTOR,
ALBERT TAIT WAS MY PASTOR AND AH, THE FIRST TIME I MET
ALBERT TAIT, EH THE FIRST QUESTION
HE ASKED WAS,
“DO YOU LOVE JESUS?” I WAS ALREADY
A CHRISTIAN AND HE DIDN’T SAY, “HELLO,
WHO ARE YOU?” AND HE DIDN’T
SAY THAT. HE SAID, “DO YOU LOVE JESUS?”
THAT WAS THE FIRST ENCOUNTER
I HAD WITH ALBERT TAIT. HE UNDERSTOOD WHAT THE LOVE
OF GOD WAS AND AH, BECAUSE
ONE SUNDAY, OH, IN THE FALL – I THINK IT
WAS OCTOBER, NOVEMBER DURING
THAT 5 SUNDAYS HE PREACHED ABOUT JOHN 3:16
AND I SAT THERE IN THE PEW,
LISTENING TO HIM PREACHING ABOUT JOHN 3:16
AND I GOT TIRED OF LISTENING
JOHN 3:16 AND THEN AH, FINALLY I HAD TO
GO SEE HIM AND I SAID TO HIM.
NOW IT’S FUNNY. – AND I ASKED HIM,
“I’M GETTING TIRED OF THIS
JOHN 3:16. I KNEW THAT A LONG TIME AGO.
I HAVE IT.” [they laugh] AND THEN AH, AND THEN HE SAID
AH, “I WILL NEVER QUIT
PREACHING JOHN 3:16 UNTIL YOU UNDERSTAND
WHAT IT MEANS.” YOU KNOW THAT’S, YOU KNOW
THIS IS WHERE I LIKE TO TALK
ABOUT [yup] AND AH A LOT OF US BELIEVERS,
WE MAY UNDERSTAND THE
SALVATION. WE MAY UNDERSTAND
WHO JESUS IS. WE MAY UNDERSTAND THAT JESUS
DIED ON THE CROSS FOR US. AND WHEN WE RECEIVE HIM INTO
OUR LIVES. THAT’S, THAT’S
THE BEGINNING OF IT ♪
Narrator: THE APOSTLE PAUL
DESCRIBES THE LOVE OF GOD. LOVE IS PATIENT AND KIND.
LOVE IS NOT JEALOUS OR BOASTFUL OR PROUD
OR RUDE. IT DOES NOT DEMAND
ITS OWN WAY. IT IS NOT IRRITABLE,
AND IT KEEPS NO RECORD
OF BEING WRONGED. IT DOES NOT REJOICE ABOUT
INJUSTICE BUT REJOICES
WHENEVER THE TRUTH WINS OUT. LOVE NEVER GIVES UP,
NEVER LOSES FAITH,
IS ALWAYS HOPEFUL, AND ENDURES THROUGH
EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE. PROPHECY AND SPEAKING
IN UNKNOWN LANGUAGES
AND SPECIAL KNOWLEDGE WILL BECOME USELESS.
BUT LOVE WILL LAST FOREVER! David: AND IN THAT SECTION OF
THE BIBLE CHAPTER 13 OF THAT
FIRST CORINTHIANS TALKS ABOUT THE LOVE. WHEN YOU STARTED
THINKING ABOUT THAT LOVE THAT LOVE IS NOT REALLY THE
LOVE THAT YOU AND I HAVE. IT IS THE LOVE OF GOD.
JOHN 3:16, “FOR GOD SO LOVED
THE WORLD.” WITH ALL THE STRUGGLES YOU
THE WORLD MAY HAVE, OR THE
PEOPLE MAY HAVE IN OUR LIVES THE ADDICTION AND ALL THE
DIFFERENT PROBLEMS
THAT THEY MAY HAVE PERSONAL PROBLEMS THAT THEY
MAY HAVE. IT IS THE LOVE OF GOD THAT
WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE
IN THEIR LIVES. IT IS THE LOVE OF JESUS
THAT HE DESCRIBED HOW THE LOVE OF GOD IS LIKE
AND THAT’S WHAT I NEED
TO HAVE. THAT’S WHAT I NEED
TO UNDERSTAND. IT’S NOT ENOUGH FOR ME TO SAY
I UNDERSTAND JOHN 3:16, FOR
GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD.” THAT’S JUST THE BEGINNING BUT
GROWING UP IS TO BE ABLE TO
UNDERSTAND THE LOVE OF GOD, SO I CAN GROW AND AH IN MY
LIFE IN MY SPIRITUAL LIFE. SO THAT THE LOVE THAT I HAVE
WILL GROW NOT ONLY ME BUT ALSO IN THE LIVES OF MY
FAMILY AND MY CHILDREN WILL
GROW IN THAT IN THEIR LIVES. ♪ Narrator: JESUS SAID,
“I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH,
AND THE LIFE: NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE
FATHER, BUT BY ME.” ♪
YOUR LOVE, YOUR LOVE,
YOUR LOVE IS HOLY YOUR LOVE,
YOUR LOVE IS PURE I COULD NOT LIVE, COULDN’T
LIVE WITHOUT YOUR LOVE LORD I COULD NOT LIVE,
COULDN’T LIVE WITHOUT
YOUR LOVE FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD
HE GAVE HIS ONLY SON THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVES
SHALL HAVE ETERNAL LIFE SO JESUS PAID OUR DEBT
YES HE LEFT HIS HOME ABOVE AND THAT’S THE WONDER THAT’S
THE BEAUTY OF HIS LOVE YOUR LOVE, YOUR LOVE,
YOUR LOVE IS HOLY YOUR LOVE, YOUR LOVE
IS PURE I COULD NOT LIVE,
I COULDN’T LIVE WITHOUT
YOUR LOVE LORD I COULD NOT LIVE,
I COULDN’T LIVE WITHOUT
YOUR LOVE Rita: DAVID, YOU’VE DONE
MANY THINGS IN YOUR LIFE AND AH, WHAT IS ONE
OF THE JOBS THAT YOU REALLY
LIKE TO DO? David: WHEN I WAS A CHILD, I
USED TO SEE AIRPLANES FLYING
Rita: OH, OKAY. David: AND AH, [he laughs]
AND THEN BACK IN MY MIND, I – SAID TO MYSELF, “I WANTED
TO FLY SOMEDAY.” [oh] AND AH, SO IT CAME THAT I
STUDIED AIRPLANES AND WENT
TO FLYING SCHOOL AND AH, GOT MY LICENSE,
AND MY COMMERCIAL LICENSE. WHEN I FIRST I GOT MY PRIVATE
AH LICENSE, I AH, I RENTED
THE AH, THE AH MISSION PLANE, A SMALL TWO-SEATER. SO I CAN
BUILD UP MY TIME TO GET INTO
MY COMMERCIAL [yah] TRAINING THEY ALLOWED ME TO USE IT AND
THEN THAT DURING THAT TIME MY DAD WANTED TO VISIT AH
ONE OF THE COMMUNITIES,
NORTH SPIRIT LAKE. Rita: WHY WOULD HE WANT
TO GO VISIT THERE? David: HE, HE WANTS TO
MINISTER THERE. [oh, okay] HE WANTED TO SHARE THE WORD
OF GOD TO THE PEOPLE AND
THEN. SO I TOOK HIM THERE. ♪
Narrator: JESUS ASKED
SIMON PETER, “SIMON SON OF JOHN, DO YOU
LOVE ME MORE THAN THESE?” “YES, LORD,” PETER REPLIED,
“YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU.” “THEN FEED MY LAMBS,”
JESUS TOLD HIM. JESUS REPEATED THE QUESTION:
“SIMON SON OF JOHN, DO YOU
LOVE ME?” “YES, LORD,” PETER SAID,
“YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU.” “THEN TAKE CARE OF MY
SHEEP,” JESUS SAID. A THIRD TIME HE ASKED HIM,
“SIMON SON OF JOHN, DO YOU
LOVE ME?” PETER WAS HURT THAT JESUS
ASKED THE QUESTION
A THIRD TIME. HE SAID, “LORD, YOU KNOW
EVERYTHING. YOU KNOW THAT
I LOVE YOU.” JESUS SAID,
“THEN FEED MY SHEEP.” Rita: YOU WERE A PILOT FOR
MANY YEARS? [yes] AND, AND
ARE YOU STILL A PILOT TODAY? David: NO. I’M NOT A PILOT.
I FLEW FROM 70’S TO 80’S,
NO 90’S. WHEN I USED TO FLY AH TO
DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES, I USED
TO SEE AH, A LOT OF STRUGGLES, PROBLEMS
WITH PEOPLE, YOUNG PEOPLE. AND AH, IN ABOUT THE 80’S AND
90’S THERE WAS AN EPIDEMIC
BACK THEN WHERE A LOT OF YOUNG PEOPLE
COMMITTED SUICIDE. AND I SAW THAT. SO WHAT
HAPPENED THEN WAS I WANTED TO GO TO SOME OTHER
WORK LIKE SOCIAL WORK. THE LEADER OF THIS COMMUNITY
CAME TO VISIT ME ENCOURAGED ME TO GO ON TO,
FOR EDUCATION. SO I DID BECAUSE HE SAID AH,
“AH, YOU NEED THAT TO HELP
YOUR PEOPLE.” AND THEN WHAT HAPPENED WAS
I ENDED UP GOING TO
BRIERCREST BIBLE COLLEGE. AND I STUDIED THE AH,
– THAT TYPE OF WORK
AND ALSO PASTORAL. SO I GRADUATED WITH THE
PASTORAL MAJORS BACK IN 1989. SO THAT’S WHEN I STARTED
TO WORK WITH THE AH, AGENCY
I APPLIED FOR IT. THERE WAS A JOB OPENING,
AND AH, SO I BECAME
A SOCIAL WORKER. SO I DID THAT FOR ABOUT CLOSE
TO 20 YEARS. SO I AH, LOOK AT EACH
COMMUNITY AND AH, BECAME A SOCIAL WORKER
VISITING FAMILIES. SOME OF THE CASES WERE PRETTY
TOUGH CASES.
Rita: YAH David: AND WHEN I KNEW THIS
IS A VERY TOUGH CASE I, I
SAID, “LORD, YOU TAKE OVER.” IN EVERYTHING I DID. IF IT’S
A DIFFICULT SITUATION,
I SAID, “TAKE OVER”. AND THERE’S AN, AN OPEN DOOR.
THERE IS A WAY YOU COULD DEAL
WITH THAT, AN OPEN DOOR. Rita: HE SHOWS YOU.
David: HE SHOWS ME WHERE TO
GO. HOW TO GO ABOUT THAT. WHEN I LEFT THE HEALTH, SOME
WOULD ASK ME, “HOW – DID YOU
DO IT? YOU LASTED SO LONG. 19 YEARS OVER 19 YEARS.
AND AH, THAT’S THE REASON
WHY I LASTED THIS LONG IT’S BECAUSE IT WASN’T ME
THAT WORKING, IT WAS THE LORD
JESUS CHRIST – BESIDE ME, HELPING ME OUT TO HELP THIS
PARTICULAR FAMILY OR FAMILIES
THAT’RE HAVING A DIFFICULT TIME. ♪
Narrator: THE APOSTLE WROTE
TO TITUS: REMIND THE BELIEVERS
TO SUBMIT TO THE GOVERNMENT
AND ITS OFFICERS. THEY SHOULD BE OBEDIENT,
ALWAYS READY TO DO WHAT
IS GOOD. THEY MUST NOT SLANDER ANYONE
AND MUST AVOID QUARRELING. INSTEAD, THEY SHOULD BE
GENTLE AND SHOW TRUE HUMILITY
TO EVERYONE. David: AND NOWADAYS WE, AS
ABORIGINAL PEOPLE WE FACE
SO MANY THINGS CULTURALLY AS WELL
AS EDUCATIONALLY.
WE STRUGGLE A LOT BUT IF WE ALLOW OURSELVES
TO BE TAUGHT THE WAY THE BIBLE SAYS IN
BOOK OF TITUS CHAPTER 3. IF WE ALLOW OURSELVES TO GO
IN THAT DIRECTION WE’LL
BE SUCCESSFUL. Rita: YEP, TO WALK ALONGSIDE
OF THEM. David: TO WALK ALONGSIDE
WITH OUR FAMILIES. Rita: TO SUPPORT THEM.
David: TO SUPPORT THEM SO WE NEED TO BUILD THEM UP
FOR THEIR LIVES JUST WHAT JESUS IS DOING IN
OUR LIVES. HE LIFTS US UP
WHEN WE FAIL. PUTS US UP AND SETS US UP
ON THE ROCK. AND WE START WALKING AGAIN.
Rita: CAUSE YOU’RE SPECIAL,
[yes] EVEN WHEN WE’RE NOT. David: [yes] HE UNDERSTANDS
OUR STRUGGLES. ♪

FAITH WILL HEAL THE SICK, AND
THE LORD WILL MAKE YOU WELL. AND IF YOU HAVE COMMITTED ANY

SO THAT YOU MAY BE HEALED. David: PEOPLE WHO HAVE
PROBLEMS, STRUGGLES, UM ADDICTED, ADDICTED

A PERSON MAY INTO.
JESUS CAN CHANGE THAT. IF A PERSON IS WILLING AND
GIVING HIS LIFE TO JESUS. HE’LL MAKE A DIFFERENCE
FOR HIM. HE WILL HELP YOU IN ANY
EMOTIONAL DAMAGE YOU MAY HAVE
IN YOUR LIFE. JESUS WILL TAKE CARE THAT.
HE WILL HEAL YOU,
WHEN YOU ASK HIM. Conrad: THAT’S TRUE! SO I
ENCOURAGE YOU TO SURRENDER
YOUR WILL TO JESUS AND LET HIM TAKE CARE OF YOU.
