On the White Mountain Apache Reservation, home repair workshops and Christian friendships are key building blocks in sharing the gospel. Due to low income and other significant factors, many homes are in disrepair and homeowners often don’t have the knowledge or proper tools to fix their house. To address this, the program focuses on using the skills and talents of local and visiting volunteers to serve those on the reservations through Christ-centered DIY workshops. The workshops allow families to gain the needed skills to repair their own homes while experiencing Christian service and learning about their Savior. Each workshop starts with a breakfast meal, a gospel-centered devotion, an introduction to tools and supplies, and finishes with a demonstration of skills at an Apache community member’s home.
