The Orr’s had reserved a room for me at the Tsegi Inn and also paid for a burger at the restaurant. My original plan was to take today off, but it was only 10 miles to Kayenta so I decided to see what it had to offer. It turned out to be a good move. I met the pastor of the Assembly of God church along the way. By the third time he stopped me, he had reserved a hotel and arranged to pick me up for their sunday night service. I ate that 10 miler for lunch and was off my legs before they even knew they weren’t experiencing a day off. As I trotted into Kayenta I could see the unique rock formations of Monument Valley to the North. I was retracing the foot steps of an American legend, Forest Gump. Monument Valley is the famous last shot where Forest stops and says, “I’m pretty tired now I think I’ll go home.” After I got settled in, Pastor Billie came to pick me up for church. The church only had 4 members when he started two years ago and today the congregation has increased to 85. About twelve of the members were there for the night service. They sang half of their hymn’s in Navajo and I began to doubt that mouthing, “watermelon” would be successful for the Navajo language. There where two long florescent lights above the pulpit and one flickered the entire service until it finally went out in the middle of a lady’s special song. Pastor Billie called me up to introduce myself and talk about the run and Living Water International. My opening line was, “You know some musicians pay a lot of money for lighting effects like that.” Anyway, my joke didn’t go over well but I recovered with the rest of my talk. Afterwards we sat around the wood stove they used to heat the building, ate fry bread and other goodies. The Navajo people are kind, proud and generous. I was grateful for their hospitality.
