Last night the team went to Hatcher’s Pass. Hatcher’s Pass is an abandoned gold mine from the 1930’s. We all split into groups with at least one leader and went our own ways. It was a cool and foggy night as we climbed around the mountain. Some groups went to find gold flakes while others went to find snow. Our group in particular went to find snow and had a snow ball fight. On our way back we were going to photobomb a professional looking photoshoot, but before we got there and they offered for us to be in their photo! As were walking away we found out that we had just crashed a Vogue photo shoot! Due to the fact that we spent so much time with the models, we arrived late to the parking lot and missed the bus. In the end we had to walk an extra mile to meet the bus outside the closed gates. It was O.K. though because the view was “absolutely insane!” – quote from Kip Sullivan.
This morning is the last day of camp, and our devotional was about taking away what we learned in Alaska. We read the verses Proverbs 3:5-6 and Jeremiah 29:11. We answered questions about the Lord’s plan for our lives, and how we think Alaska changed us. The two of us know that Alaska will leave a lasting impression in our lives. We are so grateful to have had the chance to have this amazing experience, and we hope that we will have the opportunity to go on other mission trips. #YOLO
