The Team Is Here!

by Hannah Jobe | July 17, 2022 2:38 AM

After a long travel day and some shopping downtown, we finally made it to Soldotna, our home away from home! We are all a little jet-lagged, but we are so so excited to see what the Lord is going to do this week!

The Spit!

Today we went to the Homer Spit! The Spit is a stretch of land that juts out into the ocean. It is the halibut fishing capital of the world! We enjoyed some sweet fellowship, incredible food, and even had some nice shopping finds! Such a great way to start our week!

Getting Creative!

by Hannah Jobe | July 18, 2022 1:20 PM

Last night we got to hang out with our friends at Peninsula Grace! We went to the lake and were challenged to build a cardboard boat. The goal was to see who could stay afloat the longest. We had to get very creative!

Getting Creative!

Ready! Set! Go!

by Hannah Jobe | July 18, 2022 1:30 PM

Everyone did an awesome job putting these together! I didn’t realize cardboard could float so well, haha! We had an amazing time of fellowship with our brothers and sisters at Peninsula Grace!

It's Monday morning, and we are all split into different crews to serve around the community of Soldotna today. This group of ladies is helping clean up from a garage sale at Love INC. This small nonprofit does so much incredible work with few staff, so we are happy to lift this burden for them!

The Little Things

by Hannah Jobe | July 18, 2022 4:05 PM

Often in ministry we have really big ideas for projects. That’s really awesome! Sometimes though, the littlest things make the biggest difference! Today, Sarah got to help the food bank finish up some mowing that they have been trying to get done. Even something as simple as mowing the lawn can really make an impact on a ministry!

Ripping Wallpaper

by Matthew Fedorenko | July 18, 2022 7:34 PM

We served at Peninsula Grace Church ripping wallpaper for the church. At first, the wallpaper seemed like it was going to be some trouble, but with some different spray bottles, some water, and a little vinegar we were able to get the job done. Great job team!
