With not only backing but a blessing from their church, the LaFollette United Methodist Church (LUMC) Mission Team will travel to Alaska on Saturday.
During Sunday’s service, Dr. Kenneth Faught held a commissioning service for the eight members of the team.
“They are a part of us,” Faught said to the congregation of the church. “They will represent us.”
As the group stood in front of their fellow church members, Faught led the service where worshippers asked for the group to be richly blessed while in Willow, Alaska.
