How many Christians will get the chance to travel 3,600 miles this summer to a town bearing their name and do good at the same time?
At least one will. He's the Rev. Phil Campbell, who serves the Northern Light United Church, a 200-member United Methodist and Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) congregation in Juneau, Alaska.
His destination is Phil Campbell, Ala., slammed by the April 27 tornadoes that ripped through much of the South and destroyed half of the town, including the United Methodist church. In Phil Campbell alone, 26 people died.
