Navajo - Canyon Family Church, AZ
American Indian Mission Trip
Disciple Navajo Teens in Canyon Country
Navajo teens are hurting. Even in a country teeming with activities and tourism, local youth see little reason to believe they can have a good life. Our enemy whispers lies of hopelessness and discouragement into their minds constantly. Is it any surprise that they, and Native kids all over America, commit suicide at 4-10 times the national average?
School starts for these youth on July 20. The week before these Navajo teens step back into that world of peer pressure for sex, drugs, and alcohol, your team is going to gather a bunch of them and fill them full of clean fun and good food. You'll have the opportunity to expose them to the truth of Jesus through a week-long camp. You will plan sports and games for them, and enjoy ministering through relationship building. You can expect outings throughout the week to include an excursion into Canyon de Chelly.
We’ll have help from Canyon Family youth ministers, Ben and Dina Yazzi, who love teens and can help us see how to minister to them effectively. We’ll need to be ready to run a small nursery, as Native teens often have to babysit little brothers and sisters. If babies and toddlers are your forte, you’re in for a treat. So there’s something for everyone!
Join us for a week in Arizona that you'll never forget.
