Wow! That is all I can say after spending 11 days in Kaibeto, Arizona. It was my first time to help out with a vacation bible school our Church has done for the past five years on the Navajo Indian Reservation. Over the next few days I'll post several photos I took while there. The kids were great but there was also many local characters I enjoyed as well.
This Navajo gentleman visited every day and would hang out with us. Due to a car accident he is deft and is mute. Talking to him is like playing charades. He's a really friendly guy and apparently doesn't see any problem with the politically incorrect 'Indians' logo which some seem to think is insensitive. Francis loves the Indians logo and wears the cap all the time. I met another Navajo who is a diehard Chiefs fan and loves that logo too.
The Navajo nation is a beautiful place. Filled with mesa's all around and cool smaller scale grand canyon type of landmarks. This view was from one of our VBS locations.
