It’s time, once again, to turn the page. School is finished, well…not for me. But school, as in the MV Mission School, is done for the summer and that means…….yip, yip, hooray….
I don’t have to cook for thirty-plus people two days a week.
Yes, I’m rejoicing. It’s a lot of work and I now have a lot of sympathy for those who do it every day. The responsibility is enormous. And it’s really hard to cook appetizing food, and a variety of it, on a limited budget.
And besides that,
I’m rejoicing because three young people, despite challenges and difficulties,
have successfully graduated from 8th grade.
And yet, on the heels of this ending of school….
….comes major stress.
Yep, guys. No relaxing allowed for those of us on the Navajo Nation. At least, not until camp is over.
Think: deadlines, craziness, stress, time running out.
Yep, that’s right.
Turns out, I’ve got months worth of preparation work to do in a week and a half. Schedules to create, camp codes to print, a route to ride, permission slips for land use to get signed, etc. etc.
And on top of all that, I’ve still got to keep on top of my schoolwork.
Don’t feel sorry for me.
I love it here,
I love my schoolwork,
I wouldn’t be doing anything else (except maybe sleeping, and I wouldn’t do that anyway).
Please pray for the staff of Diné Youth Camp and
the Monument Valley SDA Church and Mission.
Please pray for the young people we are striving to reach.
If I have time to post, I will.
But, if you don’t hear from me for awhile…
It’s probably because I’m busy….
May God bless all of you!
