Hey, everyone! I would like to share some of the things that we have been up to these past couple months, and what God has been doing in my life.
Our youth summer camp on the Yukon River, Camp Nahshii, went extremely well. I am grateful for the youth that came and experienced God’s presence and power. After Camp Nahshii, we had a team from Fairbanks come up and build a frame for additional rooms and office space onto our facility. I have learned so much from all of these projects.
I have also been working on college courses (15 credit hour semester), through Southwestern Assembly of God University, this month. It has been a very productive month.
God has been giving me energy, and an excitement for the things ahead. We have had a consistent core of youth who are wanting more of God in their lives, and want to be more involved. He has given me fresh vision for the youth ministry and ways to implement that vision. I am also in the process of planning the XChange Conference 2015, and then the New Year’s All-nighter outreach, which are both powerful ways to build relationships with the youth in Ft. Yukon, and impart into their lives. God is also encouraging me to go deeper into the Old Testament, and has been teaching me allot from it.
Overall, I am excited for what the rest of the year (and 2016) will bring. Please keep us in prayer, up here, as we continue to develop disciples in the faith, bringing the light and life of Christ to the Yukon Flats Region, and eventually, the entire state of Alaska.
