January 2013

 

Winter was just beginning when we sent you our last update, but three short months later, Alaskans have experienced -50F temps and won't see the ground again until late April or later! “He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes. He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?” Psalms 147:16-17

Much of what is done in the ministry is not very exciting or noteworthy. Every ministry has its challenges and chores, which must be done in order to be a good steward of the Lord's resources, and ours is no different. Over the last two months, much of our time was spent preparing the ministry in Manley Hot Springs, the hangar and airplane at the airport, our house in North Pole, and ourselves for our 2013 furlough. Looking back at things, we praise the Lord for His goodness to us. He guided and gave strength along the way.

Jeremiah’s high school graduation was a blessing. Many of you have prayed for him many times over the years, especially those who have partnered with us for the full 12 years of ministry in Alaska (plus deputation)! Jeremiah specifically asked us to let you know how much he appreciates your prayers in the past, as well as the near future, as he seeks God's guidance in his life.

After the graduation, we flew from Fairbanks to Seattle on December 14th and then drove to North Carolina with a stop in Fargo, ND for Jeremiah to visit a Bible college. We have enjoyed being able to spend some time with family, but the trip has been difficult on Lynn. We pray that she will be able to find some permanent relief from the pain and regain some mobility. There are also other tests and exams both of us need to go through. When we looked at these medical matters and considering the logistical matters which must be done on the front end of this furlough, it became obvious how grueling the next few months would be. We have consulted with our Pastor, and have decided it would be best if we pause updating churches until Lynn can travel again and the logistics have been sorted out. We covet your prayers and patience with us as we take care of these matters and can visit all our churches together as a family.

We look forward to visiting and reporting to each of our supporting churches. Some of which, we haven't visited for 12-14 years! There is no way of knowing this side of heaven the impact each of you have had on our lives and the lives of those we minister to. May our Lord continue to bless you abundantly in your lives and ministries.
