Currently Amarillo and Canyon are considered newer ground, although many years ago there was a small church life in Amarillo. There are several relatives and friends of a couple who meet with the church in Oklahoma City (four hours drive to the east), who have been enjoying the ministry of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee, and have had positive contact with saints who travel through. Our burden is to sow seeds of the gospel and the ministry through Bibles for America material, and to strengthen the contact and connection with the believers there who have been enjoying the ministry.
