Our last day

Noah:Today we went on an 8 hour bus tour. We had a great time as we drove through such an amazing demonstration of God’s great creation. It was a ton of fun trying to spot the animals, and even better when we actually found them! We were lucky enough to see eight bears, three caribou, and a moose! It was a great way to wrap up the week and see even more of God’s work. The time here has been great and I can’t wait to come back again some day!


Olivia & Emma:Today was our last full day in Alaska. Although it will be sad to leave, we’re sure we will all look back on the trip with amazing memories. We’re definitely going to miss the countless games of Gaga ball and waking up every morning to the breath-taking view of the mountains in the distance. We’ll be sure to miss the moose meat-meals, graciously cooked by the Smith family staff and singing around the campfire every night. We’ll even miss the never ending daylight and endless piles of wood waiting to be stacked, split or stripped every morning after breakfast. Our experience here in Alaska has been life-changing, and we are so grateful God had given us this unique opportunity to serve him. We all want to thank the people who provided the financial and prayer support throughout our trip here, and we are excited to see everyone back home.
