November Trip

November 18th, 2014

Our recent trip, November 10-15, 2014, was a great success. Here’s a brief summary…

  • We first visited Chaco Canyon in New Mexico, a very special place for the Pueblo tribes of the Southwest.
  • In the Pueblo of Zuni, NM, we distributed quality blankets to many of the elderly and then bought a truck load of fire wood for Thelma (pictured below, top right).
  • We brought 2 room heaters to John & Thelma, a special family in Window Rock, AZ, the capital of the Navajo Nation (bottom left).
  • In Hopi, AZ we distributed blankets to the veterans in the village of Shungopavi and to people in other villages. We also gave food certificates to elderly Hopi, some with very challenging needs. We are planning to purchase and install a larger heater in Uberta’s home in Hotevilla.
  • Throughout our travels we encouraged and blessed many others in various ways.

Kwakw’ha (Hopi for “thank you”) to everyone who assisted with funds and resources! It was only possible through your generous giving. Visit for additional information.

Summer On Hopi

May 22nd, 2014

Summer events on Hopi June 30 – July 5, 2014

Our team consisted of 28 people from Riverside, CA, 4 from San Bernardino, CA and 5 from Honolulu, HI (not all are shown in the group photo). We partnered with the Hopi Tribe Mobile Library/book mobile with their Summer Reading Program in the village of Moenkopi (located near Tuba City on the Navajo Reservation) and the Tewa Youth Center near Polacca. We also did a great event in the village of Shungopavi.

The events included games, face painting, balloon animals, crafts, interactive story reading, a magic show, a cultural presentation from Hawaii and treats. What a joy to see the children have such a great time!

We also donated $600 towards the Hopi Cancer Fund. This fund assists families with transportation to and from Hopi to Phoenix and other cities for treatments plus meals. $600 provides all the services for one family. As well, we assisted families with much needed groceries.

In Memory of Curtis

February 18th, 2014


Jane and I visited our friends in Hopi (Northern Arizona) and in Zuni (Just south of Gallup, New  Mexico) the end of January. Thelma Sheche’s brother, Curtis, passed just shortly after we visited with him. We will miss our Zuni brother. I then went back for a day to encourage Thelma (86 years of age). Thank you for praying for the family.
