"I love the joy on the kids' faces, the growth I see in them every year and the struggles I get to pray about with them. I love being able to encourage the church and be encouraged by their faith."
"Reflecting on last year I can say that it has changed my outlook and perspective on everyday life. The way the people in this area live is immensely different than what I tend to see in my everyday experience."
Some students started to venture over to Pinon Arizona for a VBS trip around 2010 copartnering with a small church in Pinon. When our home church could not fund the trip, some of the students continued to self-organize to say annually. We wish this to be a homage to our brothers and sisters on the rez. Years we often talked about starting a documentary, but we wanted to record their thoughts and a slice of their lives. We wish to do a longer form (since we lost some footage from last year due to tech difficulties).
Focus of Costs
Traveling + Expenses to get there (We spend 4,000$ normally, we pay out of pocket. We don’t mind generally, but normally, the funds ends up leaning on one person’s tab. We want to assuage this.) Sustenance for the VBS Crew + Church Members (Food for the church and for team members. We plan on being there to 7-9 days)
