Alaska Adventures

Last fall, we taught a series of meetings
from Oct. 11-14 in Valdez, AK with pastors Ray and Rosie Tapp. We also got to visit our friends in Fairbanks and take a camping road trip to Denali National Park and the Kenai Peninsula. The moose were plentiful and we even got to watch a grizzly bear for quite some time. If you've always wanted to experience Alaska for yourself, checkout our upcoming MTM Alaska Cruise!
Have you always wanted to see Alaska?

We have scheduled a MTM cruise from Aug. 27-Sept. 3. We will be leaving from Van Couver, CA and arriving in Seward, AK by way of the Inside Passage and Hubbard Glacier. We are sailing on Royal Caribbean (providing they do not cancel because of Covid restrictions).

You can register by calling the groups department planner @ 1-800-465-3595 and give them our Group #2129411 – Mountain Top Marriages – Roger & Laureen Traver.

Then let us know that you registered. We will get credit and we will be able to keep you informed about all the upcoming activities while on board.

12 couples have already signed up for the one-way cruise. Travers will also be leading
a 5 day land tour (after the ship lands in Seward) to Anchorage, Denali Park, Fairbanks and Valdez.
