We enjoyed our final day in the Copper Center and Kenny Lake area! Our day started with prayer and a quick breakfast before going south to the Worthington Glacier, a 90 minute drive from Mt. Drum Lutheran church. The Glacier is one of Alaska’s most accessible glaciers and had stunning waterfalls, a gradual climb, and cold drinkable water. We explored this area for a while before driving back to the Kenny Lake School where we had a quick lunch before starting our final day of basketball camp.
We had around 25 Alaskan children at basketball camp today. Thank you to all of your prayers and with the money you (Cross View members) provided to our confirmation student’s project, each participant walked away with a new bible (with tabs), and a new basketball.
(We even had extra basketballs that we donated to the Kenny Lake School.) These were a hit!!
After camp we hurried home to prepare a community meal. Invited guests were from the basketball camp and the neighborhood around Mt. Drum Lutheran Church.
From 6-8pm, we built relationships with around 30 guests.
Upon completion, we said our goodbyes and ‘thank yous’ to Pastor Todd and Kim Roeske, as we will be up early cleaning, packing, and driving back to the Anchorage area.
Lord, thank you for opportunities: the opportunity to see majesty, the opportunity to build relationships, the opportunity to share Jesus with others. Please bless our travels tomorrow. Amen.
