2020 Arizona Transit 1
About the Journey
Through our partnership with Memorial Baptist Church, the local Chinle Church, this Transit team of parents and students will head to Chinle, Arizona, the Native American territory near the Four Corners area of the southwestern United States. Chinle is home to some well-known landmarks like Window Rock, Canyon de Chelly, Monument Valley, and 186 miles of Lake Powell shoreline. It’s also the largest area retained by any federally recognized tribe.
You’ll have the chance to work with a local community garden, facilitate children’s programming, and help with other community projects, including painting, cleaning, and yard work. The children’s activities include Bible lessons, games, crafts, and reading stories. In addition to a week on the reservation, this team will take an adventure day to the Grand Canyon.
As the team works and serves, it will continue to develop the growing relationship between the local church and the Navajo community. At the same time, you’ll have the unique opportunity to learn about Navajo history and culture.
Spending time with the Navajo tribe and learning about their way of life, the struggles, and challenges, and the pride they have in their Native heritage is an eye-opening experience that will offer you a new perspective. Additionally, being able to share the love of Christ with them will certainly grow and strengthen your faith.
If you’re interested in experiencing a new culture and want to head west to serve this summer, apply for this unique journey today!
Price listed is per person.
