Abandoned but not Forsaken. The Testimony of Soapy Dollar (Mescalero Apache)

A young, pregnant teenager leaves her reservation for the city and gives birth to her child. She returns home alone, after leaving her baby in an alley. The child is found by a fortune-teller who takes him home and passes him around for the first five years of his life. Finally, she places him in a home for delinquent and homeless boys. You could say that life had not begun well for this little boy. But God had plans for this abandoned child that no one could have ever imagined. If you need to be reminded today that God is bigger than your circumstances, and unhindered by your past, this story will encourage and inspire you. Listen. Enjoy. Share.

    My grandfather was on the San Carlos reservation in the late 1800’s. He never told me that. I only recently found out. I would love to hear these stories.

    I am so grateful to God to see His work in your wonderful Storyteller ministry.
    Yesterday I was able to hear about it for the very first time as I listened to a fave radio station called KVIP out of Redding Ca.

    The station is holding it’s bi-annual share-athon.
    As I was listening, the voice of Soapy Dollar came on.
    It was a wondeful interview & was the first time I had heard of Storyteller!

    As a retired homeschool Mom, like many others, I have come to truly treasure & value meaningful audio stories esp. testimonies of how He calls us.

    God knows our hearts. He’s a God of compassion grace & one day will right the wrong of injustice. I am so grateful to be made aware of your ministry & just finished listening to the testimony of Mr. Soapy Dollar. What a good God we serve!! Thank you for sharing it Mr Dollar. Thank you for sharing your surrender of your heart by faith in God through Jesus Christ.

    I am privileged to listen…can’t wait for next story & pray that many Native hearts will recognize their need for Jesus & His live for them. Thank you also for yesterday’s interview. It was an education to me of culture.
