As we were cleaning up, people started to walk out and when I looked at the back door, I saw a man standing there. He looked at me, smiled and gave me a thumbs up. Still to this day I can’t tell you why it struck me in the way that it did. There was a known peace between us of what had happened. He received his meal and his scripture and in his own way shown me what it had meant. At that moment he was telling me that today he was going to be ok. Maybe not tomorrow or the next day but today he had been given the tools to find happiness in his life.
Youth Mission Trip 2019: Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, South Dakota
Pine Ridge, South Dakota is home to the Pine Ridge Lakota Sioux Indian Reservation. It is also the home of an organization called Re-Member. Re-Member is a non-profit, faith-based organization “that exists to recall our country's treatment of the Indian people and to repair the broken pieces of that relationship.” This 6-day program combines home repair projects with community outreach, cultural presenters and lectures, along with visits to the Badlands, the Wounded Knee Massacre site and pow-wows as available. Re-Member will be the host of our group for the week and will be responsible for providing food, accommodations, work projects and education. (For further informationabout Re-Member see below or check them out on-line at www.re-member.org.)
