|Corn grown on the Hopi reservation. So beautiful!|
Let's admit it, I was having a ball. Learning all about growing corn in the dusty desert and seeing the traditional society was so interesting to me. The bones in my lamb and corn stew were not so interesting. It was a disappointing find to realize that "potato" was actually not edible!
On the way home (it was about a three hour drive from our reservation) the landscape was breathtaking. The sun was setting and rainbows were forming over rocks and cliffs. At times the view seemed endless, miles and miles of land touching the sky. It was such an amazing ending to the day. After hearing about the beautiful colored corn that grows in the desert and then seeing the amazing views of the drive home I was confident, confident that God was most certainly in this place. If corn can grow in the desert, so can good things grow on the reservation. If dry ground can produce sustenance then so can God create life on the White Mountain Apache rez. In fact, if God can provide an entire show of beauty for four missionaries driving down the road, then He most certainly cares about His people.
