We have arrived! After we settled in we were able to talk with Father (or Padre) John Willard, who we will be serving with this week. He told us about the changes he has seen over the last 6 months on the reservation, and cultural customs that stick out to him. Then we were joined by Jack Moore who led our vespers for the night. He gave us a lesson on the history of White Eagle Christian Academy and Christian Life Fellowship (where we are staying). He told us about cultural customs as well as reminded us of our purpose while in Mission, South Dakota. We are looking forward to the week ahead!
(Scheduled itinerary) The trip begins! The group hits the road at 7:30am for a long ride to Christian Life Fellowship, Mission South Dakota. Travel time approximately 10 hours with stops.
