Summer 2014 has almost passed us by, already! It seams like we barely started planning the Summer and now we are planning for Winter. Not to say that this Summer wasn't filled with amazing testimonies of God's greatness! With Camp Nahshii, Creation Camp, construction projects, and visits from some pretty great teams, like Voices of Peace Ministries and Maranatha Full Gospel Fellowship, we've had a full plate.
These are the campers from Camp Nahshii:
After Camp Nahshii, we hosted a gospel music ministry team from Wisconsin called Voices of Peace Ministries. This team did a great job of meeting the needs of the community and ministering to our people, both young and old. They brought with them a huge supply of Bibles, warm winter socks, handmade wooden toys, and Coffee:
Next, we hosted our Summer camp for K-5th grade kids, here at the Fort Yukon Assembly of God church property. This year, we used a Wild West themed curriculum called SonWest Roundup:
After everything winded down from Creation Camp, I took the boat and headed back down to Camp Nahshii (60 miles down river) to help the team finish packing up the camp. When that was done, we packed the boats with the gear that doesn't stay out at camp for the Winter and headed down to the only bridge that crosses the Yukon river in Alaska (150 river miles from Camp Nahshii). It was a long, hard trip. We had winds, rain, waves, and a few boat malfunctions, but we made it.
Praise God for His protection and provision on our family and staff, this Summer. We saw many people come to know the Lord, Holy Spirit baptisms, and genuine life change moments. We are looking forward to what He has in store for us, this Fall and into the Winter.
Thank you for your prayers and support! God has used you, in so many ways, to answer many prayers out here in the Yukon Flats region of Alaska.
