We have emphasized sermon-preparation until we have lost sight of the most important thing to prepare - the heart - E.M. Bounds

Dear Praying friends & supporters,                        October, 2015

The Apostle Paul reminds us that Abraham was “… fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform” (Romans 4:21)  Imagine what every local church could do for our Lord if each of us had such faith in God.

Thank you for your prayers for us over the last three months.  My treatments down in Knoxville, Tennessee went well and our 4,500 mile drive back here to Manley Hot Springs was uneventful… after the

transmission was overhauled days before we left Knoxville!  We thanked the Lord it broke down there instead of while driving through some of the remote regions we drove through on our way back.  I will know more about the prognoses in November after I get another blood test.  Of course, I’ll have to have these tests every three months for a while, and then they go to six months.  I just praise our Lord we found the cancer early and I haven’t experienced much in the way of side affects.  I attribute that to God answering your prayers.  Thank you!  The care and treatment I received at Provision in Knoxville, TN was first class.  Proton laser treatment had much fewer side affects for me.

Although I got skunked again this year during moose season, the Lord provided us with half of a moose through another brother in the Lord.  This will sure help lower our grocery bill this winter.  We also hope not to have to use as much firewood this year because of the house repairs we made this spring.  The added insulation has helped a great deal.  You might remember that with the help of several friends, we got a small, single room cabin moved and bolted to the end of our house.  I was able to build a “stand-alone” water system in that room, and we now have running water.  Lord willing, I’ll be able to get the hot water heater working soon and we’ll finally have hot and cold running water again.  We got electricity last December and now water.  Yup, we’re getting spoiled again.

As I close another year of flying, it was another slow year.  I’m sure I would have flown a few more flights had I not had to leave the state for treatments.  I’m told that after I have two PSA blood tests, my flight medical certificate will be good, and I’ll be able to fly again.

I’d like to thank Bro. Dave Crispell for filling in here in Manley while I was down in Tennessee.  The services were well attended and Brother Dave was a big help with several projects.  Unfortunately, as soon as he arrived back home, he experienced some health problems unrelated to his stay here.  The praise in this is that our Lord allowed him to return home before the problem occurred.  There would have been serious complications had this occurred here in a village far away from his home.

Lynn and I would like to thank those of you who have asked our Lord to provide for the extra medical and out of pocket expenses, along with the rebuilt transmission.  Several churches and some individuals have sacrificially given towards these expenses.  The bills are still coming in, but it looks like we owe about $6,000.  Thank you for making this a matter of prayer.

I understand that your prayer list is long and there are needs far closer to each of you than Alaska.  But if the Lord would put the needs of Alaska on your heart, would you pray to the Lord of the Harvest to send forth laborers?  The need is great for hardy souls to serve here.

Yours for the Cause of Christ,

Your friendship and help over the years has been a real blessing. Without MAC (Mission Air Care) five young men wouldn't have been saved. These young men are still active in our ministry and helped all week with VBS.
