I wanted to tell you that the impact from the trip has been great here among our students -- we have at least 4 our our students share at different times in chapel about the thinks God has been teaching them, of which Alaska has been a huge part. Today, Eric and Megan (2 students who came) pretty much led the entire chapel service, and it was awesome. I just wanted to thank you again so much for allof your hard work as a missionary there and for all of your help making our trip happen. Michelle
I have a photo album with some very cherished pictures of this past year's trip. My 16 year old granddaughter Rebecca was looking at the pictures -- especially the ones I had of the children. While looking at the pictures, she said, "Nanny, I have to meet these children; I have to help them." Needless to say, I am very proud to say that she will be one of our team members this next trip.
Scott: Words can't express how tremendous our experience with GraceWorks was last week. Not a negative word was shared by our team about the whole experience. Your staff is wonderful and so positive. As I shared with you, I have never encountered such a well-run machine and I've done camps and conferences and mission trips for over 40 years! Sam Crouch, Calvary Baptist Church, Elko, NV
Dear Scott. I just wanted to thank you again for providing such a wonderful experience for the FBBA group! Our kids truly did not want to leave, and many of them want to return to Alaska next year. I wanted to thank you and your staff for everything-- it was so well-organized and taken care of. Your leadership was wonderful. Traci was a great help, and as always, Jerry and Melissa were amazing. The students stayed busy, learned a lot of new things, and they so enjoyed their time. The parents haven't stopped raving about all of their students' stories.
Thanks for all you did for our church and teenagers. Thanks for all you did for my wife and I. This trip changed our lives! Youth Pastor from Missouri
Traci. I know you guys are still in the thick of it here, but I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for a magical week. We gave our report to the church on Sunday and everyone was filled with a sense of encouragement and excitement at what God is doing there. Our prayers are offered up daily for God's work through GraceWorks and His obvious desire to rescue souls in Alaska. I am confident we will be returning next year.
