This last few months has been a busy time here in Fort Yukon! Between building projects, Alaska School Of Ministry, Becoming a Missionary Associate with U.S missions, being involved in our weekly services and events, and running our Espresso Fundraiser (Arctic Espresso) "down time" has been in short supply. I couldn't be more thankful for where God has me and what He is doing in the Yukon Flats.
Fairbanks First Assembly of God has been an incredible blessing to us and we now are in the process of finishing the office and housing expansions in the parsonage. My father was able to come up from Wasilla and help our building project, which was such a blessing! I am looking forward to him coming up again, in November.
AKSOM (Alaska School of Ministry) has been a part of my every day routine and I am excited to say that I will be finished with my licensing courses by December 1st. I have recently been accepted as a Missionary Associate, and plan on a trip to Wasilla/ Anchorage area in mid-late October to raise budget/support.
I’ve been so encouraged by our staff and the people in our church! Something that the Holy Spirit has continuously been speaking to me about is obedience. Not just to his word, but to the His prompting in everything. For me, It's been a season of study, observance, and obeying him in the little things. All through out the Bible, we see examples of people in obedience and disobedience to the Father. We can learn a great deal from their experiences and how they responded to the things around them. Is Gods presence, and obedience to Him, our ultimate goal? Are we seeking Him? Are we trusting Him? These are all questions that I’ve been asking myself daily. Taking time to pray, worship, and read God's word is how we pursue relationship with him.
It's been a rewarding season and I am so eager to see what he has in store, as we head into Winter!
