How little chance the Holy Ghost has nowadays.  The churches  and missionary societies have so bound Him in red tape that they practically ask Him to sit in a cornner while they do the work themselves.  --C.T. Studd--

Dear Prayer Partners,                                 August 2011

A verse often used by missionaries is, “I must work the works of Him that sent Me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” (John 9:4) This verse might mean a little more to missionaries in the Arctic! In the summer, there is no “night” or darkness but, when darkness does come, it brings the cold! Most outside projects and activities come to a halt. It gives a sense of urgency during the summer, and much work must be accomplished during the 100 days between frosts.

Earl has taken part in three Operation Saturation trips so far this summer. That means all villages above the Arctic Circle have complete Bibles in every home. God's Word was preached, the Gospel was given, and souls prayed to receive Christ in both villages. On one trip, he and another team member had time to install a chimney for missionary Warren Compton's wood stove.

Three out of the five ministry planes that Mission Air Care maintains were inspected, and repairs have been completed. One of the planes that has not been completed is Mission Air Care's (MAC's), while the other one should be completed by the time you receive this update. Thank you for praying for safety in flight and for “seeing eyes” for Earl as he inspects these planes.

With all the upgrades and repairs completed on the Piper Chieftain, it has been doing exactly what God meant it to do. Mission and VBS teams, campers, missionaries, and tons of supplies have been safely carried criss-cross across this large state. Thousands, maybe tens of thousands, of dollars have been saved by God's servants, just in the last three months, by using this plane. More importantly though, two campers who traveled to Bible camp in it accepted Christ during camp! How do you put a price on that?! The prayers and financial gifts of you our friends are needed and appreciated.

Our family spent a week of July down in the southern part of the state sharing our work in three churches. We believe the Lord used these meetings to encourage others in the area of missions in our “Judea,” or our own “back yard.”  We met many new friends during that week. One man, named Sam, who was up here visiting family, realized he was trusting in the lie that church membership would get him to heaven. It was a real joy to watch Sam believe God's Word and receive Christ as his Saviour.

It can be difficult to find words to express how much we appreciate all who pray for our ministry. It enables us to help those who are on the front lines of the battle. We all are in the battle; we just have different jobs. If we all do our job, our Commander, the Lord Jesus, looks good.

 

Church Planting

Manley Baptist Fellowship is a group of Believers who either live in, or within 40 miles of Manley Hot Springs, Alaska.  It is not unusual for folks to fly in, boat or 4-wheeler in (in the summer), snow machine in (in the winter), or just walk in for services on Sunday!
