LaFollette Missions Team Fundraisers Alaska or Bust

Can you believe the missions trip to Alaska is only 3 months away in 2009? That sounds like a lot of time but it's not. For some of us, it's only 3 paydays. We're going to be doing a lot of fundraising to get to Alaska. The proceeds from these fundraisers will go toward building supplies.

As you can imagine, the cost of supplies are much higher in Alaska than they are here. This is partially because of transportation challenges and also because of the type of construction. Walls have to be thicker, this means windows have to be thicker etc.

Can you help us help the people of Willow, Alaska?
