Kyle and Will began our day with a devotion on “Mistaken Identities” taken from 1 John 3:11-24. We were reminded that at a basic level and from a biblical perspective, we have much in common with the poor.  The non-poor suffer from the same kind of poverty as the poor – only it is expressed in the opposite way.  Both kinds of poverty have to do with relationships both result from a world that isn’t the way it was intended to be.  Having too much is similar to having too little.  Riches can impoverish.  Life can be full of things yet empty of meaning.

When the team members were ask to reflect on the week, we heard “I appreciate the culture and the church.  Being a part of a generation who believes in Jesus Christ by the devotions shared and the dedicated service shown”.  “The presence of the Holy Spirit was felt receiving power to continue each day to do God’s work”.  “The team works well and plays well TOGETHER”.  “New friendships have been formed”.  “The team bonded quickly”.

Our excursion today was to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation, a sanctuary dedicated to preserving Alaska’s wildlife through conservation, education, research and quality animal care.  #missionsforlife
