Today, we are headed out to Hopiland. It’s my first visit. The reservation is located about 90 miles north of our Flagstaff base. I am anxious to meet all the people I have been learning about for the last two weeks.
Starting a new missionary job is just like every other job. The first few weeks consist of training, learning, training, learning, training, learning.
Yesterday, I spent the afternoon with our director, Millie, at the Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff learning the history of the many tribes that have inhabited and still inhabit this area. What wondrous people plowed this ground before us. The museum contains displays from and history about the ancient Anasazi (ancestors to the Hopi), the Zuni, Navajo, Hopi and several other indigenous peoples who inherited this earth. It was fascinating. I wish we could have stayed longer.
