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--

July 2012

Hello from North Pole Alaska,

We are enjoying the wonderful, long Alaskan days, and the memories of the -60F are distant memories right now. As of June 21st, we start losing daylight, and the Fireweed flowers are in full bloom. With 24 hours of daylight, Alaskans don't seem to sleep much. Fishing, firewood, and fun times seem to be on most people’s minds.

We thank the Lord for granting safety, in over 44 hours of flying, since our last update. What does that equate to? That's over 7,400 nautical miles across rugged, Alaskan terrain and icy oceans. Thousands of pounds of groceries, building supplies, and other freight have been carried to missionaries across the state. Campers were able to attend Rock Crossing Bible Camp. Six or seven souls have trusted Christ and made other life-changing decisions. Preachers have been flown into villages to preach, and missionaries have been transported for far less than commercial cost. We hope you remember that, when you support our family, you are actually helping many other missionaries too. You are having an impact far greater than you might ever know!

Back in April, we weren't expecting to have anyone working with us this summer, but as God would have it, He sent two men our way unexpectedly.  First was Ryan Gray, a Bible college student who believes God has called him into missionary aviation.  He already has his mechanic licenses and is working on obtaining his pilot's license. We hope to help him gain enough experience to make the trip worth his effort, and we appreciate his strong desire to serve our Lord.  Second was Brother Dave Crispell. Brother Crispell is no stranger to us here in Alaska. Although we've missed him the last two summers, we are grateful he was available to intern and help two churches in PA find good pastors, so they will stay strong for the Lord.

Except for truck break downs, the ministry out at Manley Hot Springs is going well.  For all the years Earl has flown for Rock Crossing Bible camps, there has never been a teen from Manley attend this camp...’til this year.  A 13 year-old young lady was the first!  What a joy it was to hear her give testimony of trusting Christ while there!  Her name is September, and I'm sure you will want to whisper a short prayer up to our Lord thanking Him for His grace.

Other aspects of the ministry in Manley are going well too.  Even with “fish camps,” summer work, vacations, building projects, etc....the attendance is holding around 20-25 souls each week, and those who attend really seem to desire to hear from the Lord.  What a blessing!  Some of the work on the Pastor's Cabin has been accomplished, and more will be completed now that the camp flying has been completed.

Jeremiah has worked hard to ensure he graduates high school in December instead of next May. He chose to take some summer courses so he only has to take morning classes this next semester. He's having some pain in his knee and the calf muscle. Chiropractic adjustments help; but since he is a teen and very active, the adjustment doesn't last long. Lynn found out from her chiropractor that she also has a herniated disc in her back now, on top of the degenerating disc. Please pray these medical needs will not get any worse and that we will be able to get these matters resolved during our furlough in 2013. We are asking the Lord for His guidance.

Please continue to “Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.” Every missionary we serve in Alaska prays for a co-worker, and there are souls in villages praying for just one missionary pastor. “How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?” Rom 10:14

Your prayers for this ministry and our family are appreciated more than we can express. For those who give and pray, thank you. You are making a difference. God was good to our family when He gave you to us as friends. Please know that we are working hard to ensure much fruit will abound to your account.
In His Service,

Earl, Lynn & Jeremiah Malpass


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!


Maintenance Matters

Mission Air Care maintains and inspects, six (6) missionary airplanes.  Two - Cessna 206's.  One - Cessna 207.  One - Cessna 172.  One - Piper Navajo.  One - Aerostar.



Without MAC five young men wouldn't have been saved

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.
