From Indiana to Alaska - 06/03/12

On June 3 we welcomed a pan-Orthodox mission team from Indiana. Although they had planned on serving elsewhere on the island, when those plans had to change they quickly adapted and graciously volunteered to take care of construction and maintenance issues at the Seminary and Holy Resurrection Cathedral here in Kodiak. Although they only had 10 days, they accomplished many needed projects, including completely replacing two staircases at the single student residence, needed maintenance at the Seminary chapel, installing a new door and ramp at the Cathedral . . . all with great joy. We gratefully thank our brethren of this mission team for their supporting our ministry to the Church in Alaska.
