Day 4

Processed with VSCO with g3 preset

My New Mexico mission trip has been a roller coaster ride. From my frustration to complete satisfaction. I was assigned to a group who’s trying to repair the roof on a trailer of a Navajo woman. First day on this project was complete frustration. We were met with one obstacle after another. First we were truly concerned with our Saftey. The roof was in ridiculous condition. As we moved around the slick medal roof in the blazing hot desert sun, we found we needed some material we did not have. The store is an hour away. So while we were waiting we talked with the pastor of the church. His name is Harry and he is Navajo. He told us how God has worked in his life and the challenges he faced in his community. I felt Harry was opening up to us. So I asked him if there is a way to combine Navajo ways and Jesus. I personally have struggled with this in the past because I can see Gods work in nature. I was releved when Harry’s answer was a flat no. He said the only way to heaven is through Jesus. Harry confirmed to me that it is important to do whatever it takes to impact others. Even if it’s standing on a hot medal roof in the desert, trying to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
