Day One - Sunday

Well, we have made it here to the beautiful state of Alaska! As we were about to land in Anchorage, we could see all the snowy peaks and glaciers from the plane windows, and let me tell you, it was truly breathtaking. After a full day of traveling, most of the team landed Sunday evening and the rest of the team landed late Sunday night.

We were graciously greeted by the Grace Works team and had a hot dinner waiting for us at the church when we arrived. By tomorrow morning, all 11 of us will be here ready to kick off a wonderful week! We are all excited and we cannot wait to see what God has in store!

Please pray for us as we meet the kids we will be working with this week. We ask that you pray for meaningful relationships to be established and for Christ's love to be evident in everything that we do.
