This month has been very productive for the ministry that God has called us to. As a "tag-team" ministry couple, Sharnay and I were able to minister to hearts and share our ministry vision at Valley Chapel A/G, Tok A/G, New Beginnings Faith A/G, and Joy Christian Fellowship while also preaching 8 services, hosting 3 "Ladies Night" women's ministry Bible studies, and multiple youth discipleship meetings in Fort Yukon.
We spent 4 days helping our good friends, the Duplantis's, move from North Pole to Nenana. Stephen Duplantis is now the Pastor of Nenana Assembly of God church. We spent allot of time painting the parsonage and church office, moving furniture, and loading/unloading the U-Haul. We were proud to be able to help this family get a good start in one of our churches that really needs them.
We hope to be able to help with the flooring project, coming up soon.

We were tremendously blessed by the 2013 Alaska Ministry Network Conference! What a great time of fellowship, encouragement, support, and ministry. This was, by far, the best Alaska Ministry Network Conference that we have ever attended!
During one of the evening services, we were asked to come up front by our Assistant Superintendent. He gave everyone an update on where we were with our itineration goals and asked people to raise their hand if they would consider supporting us. In that one service, we were propelled to 86% of our budget, leaving just under $900 per month in Faith Promise support needed to reach 100%! We are SO EXCITED about this next month!
THANK YOU SO MUCH, everyone who chose to join our support team through prayer and monthly financial support. You are the backbone to our ministry in the Yukon Flats!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent with the other Assembly of God U.S. Missionaries ministering in Alaska. We work together to enhance the ministry to rural Alaska and other cultures all over Alaska. Thank you ALL who support missionaries! May God richly bless you so that you can be generous on every occasion and He will get the glory and praise because of your giving.
