Last quarter, Mr. Green was teaching a lesson in American History about the Native Americans and he mentioned that the poorest percent of today’s America is on the Native American Reservations. It has been a long time since the Native Americans were forced off their land but they are still suffering. Mr. Green mentioned that he would like to take a mission trip to these reservations to see if there was anyway that he could help. Several weeks after announcing to his class, he officially announced that he will be leading a mission trip to Arizona.

Mr. Green took the initiative to make change happen. He saw something that wasn’t right and so he did something about it in a very big way. The trip will be headed to Arizona to offer any service that they can. They are going to find out what the people need, and then they are going to do their best to make it happen.

“We are doing this to help others and spread the good news. There has always been something about Native American culture that interests me and the fact that we talk about it in class made me think why do we always talk about something and never just do it? We need to do something and sometimes, myself included, we talk about doing things and they never get done. I realized I needed to put my words to actions” says Mr. Green.
