New Mexico: Penny and Bill

The time has finally come to meet two people from Circle, Ak. in Albuquerque, New Mexico, then travel northwest of Cuba to Lybrook Community Mission. This is a Church of the Brethren sponsored mission that helps mainly Navajo Native Americans. This is to be a cultural exchange, and a chance to see how folks garden in the desert Southwest.
Miranda and Jason have spent a life time experiencing the harsh Alaskan weather and difficulties of village life, but had no idea how bad other natives may have to live. This eye opening experience has left a lifetime mark on our lives. Our dear friends returned to Alaska feeling they really don't have many difficulties at all, and have left Penny and I wondering if we should travel in a different direction next spring.
