We arrived safely in Anchorage at 1:30 p.m. and met up with our 8th team member Charles Ting.  We were greeted by our hosts from the The UMC of Chugiak of The temperature was a wonderful 65 degrees.

After settling in to the church we ventured out to explore the Municipality of Alaska.  After a long day of traveling, a delicious meal at a local restaurant, shopping for our groceries (we are doing our own cooking) some of us were ready to call it a day.  However, those that were anxious to start exploring (which were mostly those much younger) attended the local “Bear Paw Festival 2019”!
