This morning we begin packing up all of our belongings and getting ready to leave Eaglecrest. We have had an awesome time here at camp and have been so blessed by the staff who spend their summer’s serving the groups that come through. Last night was the Community Dinner and roughly 100 people from the Sutton area were all at camp to enjoy a night of good food (20 lbs of fresh salmon!) and good laughs. Many of the people there we had served with over the course of the week and so it was so fun to see all those faces together one last time. It made for a great last-hurrah for us before leaving camp.
Next up for the trip we begin our 5 hour drive to Denali. We will be sleeping on the floors of a school tonight and tomorrow night and tomorrow morning we’ll be waking up at ~4am for our bus tour of Denali National Park…we’ll see how that wake up time goes, I’ve got an air-horn if necessary! But it’s the best chance we’ve got at seeing wildlife, and so it’ll all be worth it in the end!
Pray for safe travels, lots of energy, and that we would still be focused on seeing God’s face even though the “service” portion of our trip has ended.
