Orthodox Youth Mission Team – Alaska 2017 Update

Things couldn't be better! We are in one of the best facilities that has ever been our Center. Bible camp was a huge success. We have a day to regroup tomorrow before the teen conference begins on Friday. The people are warm and inviting. We had lunch and dinner in private homes and everyone has been open to trying the local cuisine. Tonight's delicacy was braised moose! Transportation can be challenging but we hope materials arrive tomorrow so we can continue work on the church in Oscarville. Because we are in a school, the wifi blocks Facebook during the day so we can only post and see comments after 5pm. Here is the post I put on my own Facebook page today: Love these kids! Americawear Wednesday was today's camp theme, and work continued on the church in Oscarville.
