Womens Trip - New Mexico: 23B4A0825NM
You’ve got a story to tell. It’s significant, powerful, and you want it to count for something.
On this mission trip the Beauty for Ashes team will create a space for women to engage with their own story and connect with God.
We come alongside our ministry partners that serve the Navajo people near a reservation in the high desert of New Mexico at an elevation of 7,200 feet. The people in the Navajo community are desperately in need of Jesus and spiritual direction. Many are in trouble, facing huge drug and alcohol addiction issues, family disintegration, and incredibly high suicide rates (even among the very young). The level of dependency and hopelessness is still hard for many people living outside the reservations to imagine, let alone understand. Native Americans need a personal experience, a loving relationship with Jesus that will lead to hope and purpose.
You know about women who are suffering and being victimized, and your heart breaks for them.
That's exactly how Ruth and her team felt on the very first Beauty for Ashes trip in 2014. They wanted to see women set free from the lies they had believed for years. On that trip, Ruth met a woman named Nancy. She realized this new friend had a story in need of God’s redemption. After her time with Ruth, Nancy began believing God's truth — her story does matter.
As a participant on this domestic mission trip, you will join your team in New Mexico, enjoying the warmth of new friends and the expectancy of how God will move. You will personally experience Beauty for Ashes ministry through a time of authenticity, vulnerability, hope, and healing as you allow God to use your story to empower you and your team.
You will have an opportunity to share God’s hope and love by hosting Beauty for Ashes retreats for Navajo women living in the reservation.
Your team will:
Host Beauty for Ashes retreats, creating spaces for God to bring hope, healing, and redemption to the stories of local women.
Be equipped to share about topics such as worth, identity, healing, and forgiveness with others through storytelling and vulnerability.
Build meaningful relationships with your team and those with whom you minister.
Gain a deeper understanding of who God is and who you are as His daughter.
