Evangeline’s Story

Many of you have heard us talk about Hidden Springs Mission and our heart for the Navajo people. For the next few weeks, we want to share our girls’ thoughts about our move and life here on the Reservation.

Meet Evangeline who loves Navajo Tacos!

Evangeline McRae is our youngest. She’s ten years old and is currently in the 4th grade. She loves playing the ukulele and one of her special gifts is asking all the questions about all the things.

The other day, the little bird {my mom’s nickname for Evangeline} and I had a little chat…

Why do you think we moved to the Reservation?
To be closer to the Navajos so we can help them more for what they need.

What has been the hardest part about moving here?
Family and friends and our old traditions that we did back in VA like go to the beach house every summer with our families.

What do you miss most about VA?
Family & friends and being able to stay at their houses and having fun.

What is the best thing about living here so far?

  • going to Lake Powell
  • going to Flagstaff
  • I like doing distributions
  • I like my teachers at Page
  • and being able to have a lot of dogs!
What have you learned about yourself since you’ve moved?

That I like Navajo tacos.

If you could say something to the people who give money every month to help the nonprofit, what would it be?
Thank you for giving and your donation helps us a lot – and the Reservation – and the people that live here.

If you could say something to people who are thinking about giving money to HSM, what would it be?
Please consider making a donation. If you choose to donate, the amount that you choose to give can be a high amount or a low amount.

What is a favorite moment, story, or memory you’d like to share from anytime in the past 2.5 years?
When the Powells and NeNe and PaPa came and surprised us at Christmas-time and meeting the Navajo people around here.

Next week, you’ll hear from Isabella!
