The purpose of this mission experience is to help our Navajo partners in the development of their community while building relationships with the wonderful community members we get the great opportunity to serve alongside. We go as learners and listeners with servant hearts open to what God has prepared for us to do. The hope is that when trip participants return home they will be open to helping others in need locally and expand their efforts around the world.
The construction projects usually consist of home renovations such as roof repair and ramp building as well as home builds. The team will also have an opportunity to have Kids’ Club for the children in the community.
WHAT WE'RE DOING
World Servants has partnered with the Navajo Nation leaders for more than 20 years to help them with community development in many different ways. We have brought in teams to help with construction and outreach as well as the connection of resources and providing leadership training. There are more than 100 churches of many different denominations working fervently as one to help create sustainable development in the Navajo Nation.
Our call to help in the Navajo Nation include but are not limited to the renovation of homes for the elderly, disabled and veterans; renovation or rebuild of homes in the Gallup, NM area; and the restoration of homes for under-resourced community members.
World Servants seeks to use the skills and interests of the trip participants during the mission experience. However, all participants are asked to remain flexible and open to the opportunities for “being” and “doing” what the Spirit provides.
