We’ve arrived

After one incredibly long day and night of travel, we are in Bethel. The long journey is a good reminder that we are far from home and of the incredible vastness of Alaska.

The students are settled into various sleeping places. The women have called their Sunday-school-rooms converted into sleeping space the cabin.

We went for a walk around the community of Bethel, then had pizza with CU grad Michelle DeWitt, Bethel teacher Alisha Coplin and Father Mark.

Today we start our interviews. The journey really begins.
