James & Katie Attebury, Amargosa Valley, NV

Amargosa Valley is a remote desert town between Death Valley National Park and the Yucca Mountain Range. The name Amargosa comes from the Spanish word amargo, which means “bitter” to describe the water of the Amargosa River. Many tourists pass through on their way to Death Valley or Las Vegas. Our town is also home to the largest dairy farm in Nevada. Amargosa Christian Fellowship exists to reach our community for Christ and disciple those who follow him.


  1. Our church has started an AWANA ministry and a youth group to reach young people for Christ. Pray that we would reach many families with the gospel message through these ministries.
  2. Pray for the Lord’s provision for our church as many people are going through difficult trials.
  3. Pray for wisdom for us in raising our 2-year-old son, Julian.
  4. James is a volunteer firefighter; please pray for his protection as he serves people in need.
