Hey there!! The last few days we have been talking A LOT about community and building relationships here and we thought we’d take a moment and send some “Shout Outs” and love to our community back home.
Don’t worry tomorrow morning (most likely around your lunch time) we will be sharing pictures and stories about today’s amazing hike up the butte and out fun at day camp. But for now….. here is what we’d like to say:
Anthony: shout out to my nephew hudson. Thank you for the letter, i read it on my plane ride. Also, shout out to my dad. I’m thinking of you a lot out here.

Gabi: Shout out to the Dobereiner family and friends. Thank you so much for the cards and the opportunity to go to Alaska. It is amazing.
ps: **Amanda Kelsey & Kristin would like to know what a Cowffallo is. Kristin might have made Gabi believe that she had had a Cowffallo Burger on State Street before. 🙂

Love getting to read your blog posts! We are praying for you guys, and are so excited to hear about all of your adventures!
So great to hearing how the trip has been for you all and there is so much more for you to do:experience! This blog is a life saver as I admitted to Matt on MONDAY night that I was missing Gabi just a bit. Maybe more than just a bit. But am beyond excited about this opportunity for her and the rest of the team. Huge growing opportunity for all-don’t be afraid to let God stretch each of you. You’ll be glad you got stretched! Stretching is good and we could likely all could stand to be stretched more. Love you G!
