After such an amazing day yesterday, as we were worshipping during our devotions today the phone rang with some bad news. Calvin rang to say that the prison has gone into lockdown! That means no visitors ... We really need your prayers please. We were scheduled for Friday and Calvin is really working hard to get us in even if it means on another day. Disappointing especially as we had had such a good day yesterday inviting the guys along and seeing how excited many were about our visit, it seems so cruel.
Meanwhile if we don't go on Friday another opportunity has opened up for us to go into the detox centre and detention centre which is fantastic!
Today has been another brilliant day of new opportunity. After breakfast we travelled west and crossed the border and a time zone back into Arizona to the Sun Valley Indian School. A boarding school for Navajo children run by Christians. We set up in the Chapel and then had lunch with the kids, spent some time playing with them in their playground in the baking hot sun and then took a session with the whole school and staff. We sang, did a drama skit, showed one of our mission films, talked about the UK, preached and had a Q and A session. It was really good to have freedom to talk to the kids about Jesus.
We then went into the classrooms to see the different things they are learning about including working with wool and weaving! The guys took a soccer session in the gym. We left behind soccer gear, games and gifts for the staff and a financial gift. We all felt extremely blessed by the day and the welcome we had received.
On our way home we stopped off in Holbrook to show Steve the Wigwam Motel and have tea in Romas.
We are now back in Gallup extremely tired ... tomorrow is going to be a very full day. Please pray for our stamina.
