"Over the last three summers my junior high group has been blessed to join Encounter Missions on the Navajo and Hopi reservations. These mission trips have been absolutely amazing. Pastor Bill and his team have made sure that there are always great ministry oppurtunities and appropriate challenges for my teams. We have also enjoyed his knowledge of these two tribes and how we can minister to them. On all three trips we have enjoyed the bonding oppurtunities we have had that Pastor Bill and his team have provided. We have climbed mountains, hiked into canyons, jumped off cliff's into the river, adventured into the little painted dessert and watched the sunset from Dilkkon mountain. These memories have been a fantastic part of our journey to grow our kids in Christ. Oh... and by the way, the food is always fantastic. As a Youth Pastor who has taken aobut 20 short-term missions, I have never seen any trip where everything was taken care of for us quite like we experience with Encounter Missions International. Every summer my leaders and I are free to minister to our kids and join their efforts to bless those we are serving."

    "Thank you so much for a wonderful experience this summer. It was an experience we will never forget and will always treasure in our hearts. The time with you was precious and it was to short and flew by.Thank you for welcoming us with open arms and making us a part of your family. May God richly bless each one of you as you minister in His Kingdom.

Thank you for letting me share in your life for a short time. It was an awesome experience and something I will never forget. Learning your culture and experiencing your shared love of christ was amazing. I will never look at tumbleweeds in the same way again."

    "This was no doubt one of the best mission trips we have taken! Everything was well planned out and best of all it was hands on. We worked on different projects and met the people we did the projects for which was great for our students. They actually got to see the fruit of their work come to be. If you want a great hands on cultural experience then you have to come to the Rez!!"
