Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

Today is 4/20/2014, on 4/25/2014 I will be headed to Alaska on a mission trip with 10 other members of our church Lake Ridge Church in Eastlake,Ohio. I am going to chronicle my journey here for anyone who is interested in following along.

Keep in mind, I believe in God and will be talking a great deal about Him,and His Son Jesus. With that in mind, if you are a non believer,than this is probably not the thread for you. I do however encourage you to follow along,you never know,you just may find my journey interesting.I plan to post as many pictures as possible, and post my thoughts and feelings about this trip.

I will be stepping way out of my "comfort zone"(3933 miles to be exact),but I have heard it said "nothing changes in your comfort zone". I truly expect this trip to change my life for the better. Anyone reading this,feel free to ask questions,and I will do my best to answer them. However, if you are just going to bash my faith or my God, I will not even bother to banter back and forth trying to defend my beliefs to you.

Any and all prayers are greatly appriciated!! I pray, and hope you enjoy this read, and follow along!

God Bless You,

Thomas Bennett

Ok,sorry not to have updated sooner,but I had less then stellar internet connection and most of my time was spent doing mission work with poverty stricken children in Alaska. I had no time for posting or anyway too,so i will go on now to post my experience.
My time in Alaska went by too Fast! Truly one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. I will try to do my best to explain and post some good Pictures!!
