I was assigned to a group who’s trying to repair the roof on a trailer of a Navajo woman. The first day of this project was complete frustration. We were met with one obstacle after another. First, we were truly concerned with our safety. The roof was in ridiculous condition. As we moved around the slick metal roof in the blazing hot desert sun, we found we needed some material we did not have. The store was 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 God’s work in nature. I was relieved 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 metal roof in the desert, trying to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
