I spent a couple years working with the Apaches while in Arizona. It was disappointing. It was not the fault of the Apaches but rather the "Christians." I had never seen so much selfishness as the churches that descended down onto that reservation like vultures. Essentially what I witnessed was an industry of tourism built upon the backs of the poor that allowed a bunch of people to feel good about themselves at the expense of the Apaches.
I witnessed indoctrination, baptisms out of coercion, emotional manipulation, kids taken from their parents, racism, and even abuse.
Success is not measured by going home and telling your church you baptized twenty second graders during your mission vacation. Those same kids will get baptized again the next week when another church comes or "ask Jesus into their heart" when yet another church comes. It's all the same to them.
Kids will do pretty much anything for candy, and candy is cheap. The gospel cost too much apparently, to transport from the Midwest to Arizona. Remember, the mission trip you took that "Changed Your Life" most likely did nothing to change the people you were supposed to be helping.
They need longterm missionaries willing to model Christ. People who will teach them the truth, respect them as people, and who realize they are guest upon the reservation.
