YNIA sponsored many worksites, but Holy Family Youth was split up into two groups. Half worked with the Little Sisters of the Poor, an order of sisters whose main focus is on charity. After re-striping their parking lot, trimming back brush and picking unwanted weeds, we visited with the elderly patients that the Little Sisters cared for at their assisted living home.
The other half went to work with a local Navajo family, re-tiling a floor, scraping and painting two decks, and learning more about the Navajo culture. Together, we worked to help bring social justice to the community of Gallup while learning more about serving others in the love of Christ.
