JULY 4, 2017


(Also known as Sky City)

(Posts are in picture order: l to r)

Tanner:  Today we went to Acoma Pueblo.  I loved it.  I took the steep staircase down the mountain.  It was a great experience!  I got to take a picture with an artist!

Hollis:  One of my favorite parts of today besides the beautiful views of Sky City was getting to learn about the culture and interact with the artists.  

Morea: One of my favorite parts of today was meeting and speaking to the artists, they had beautiful artwork and interesting and cool stories.  My other favorite part was the breathtaking views from Sky City.

Maravel: Today I went to Acoma Pueblo.  It was so cool.  I got some very cool things. It was great to see things I've never seen before!  Houses over 1000 years old.  

Harper:  today we . . .um . . . I don't remember more than was written by the others. Main highlight of the day that everyone was stoked about was my journal entry from the plane ride that we all acted out after we got home.

The Youth Mission trip to New Mexico

Has begun!!

We are off to New Mexico!  So many great opportunities to learn and serve!  We will be staying at the Bosque Center (the Episcopal Retreat Center in Albuquerque, part of the Diocese of Rio Grande). Some of our plans include the Biopark Botanic Garden, Acoma Pueblo, Navajo Land Mission Churches, and Indian Pueblo Cultural Center.  Our daily schedule will start with Morning Prayer, and Labyrinth Walk, then breakfast and a daily community meeting.  We will end the day with Evening Prayer.

After our time in Albuquerque, we head to the Grand Canyon by train!  Home on Monday, July 10.
