Dear friends

The Psalmist told us to praise the Lord… “For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD.” Psalm 117:2  We have clearly watched our Lord repeatedly show “His merciful kindness” over the last few months.  

He has shown His mercy in our village ministry in Manley Hot Springs.  We recently baptized two adults and a young person in the hot springs hot house.  What a thrill it is to watch the Lord work in hearts and His children be obedient to His Word!  As an added blessing, we get to have baptisms with beautiful flowers, hanging grapes, and other plants.  God’s “merciful kindness is great toward us.”



He has shown His mercy in our aviation ministry.  Although the number of ministries we fly for is declining, those who still use us are very grateful for our service.  The flights for Rock Crossing Bible Camp yielded mighty fruit.  Souls were rescued from the Devil’s Hell, young Christians made important decisions in their lives and gained victory in areas they have struggled with.  Missionaries have been safely shuttled across the state, to and from the villages they minister in.  Maintenance has been performed on ministry aircraft all along the way.  More has been accomplished over the last few months than Earl could do by himself so special thanks go out to Denny Daugherty, Dave Crispell and Larry Phillips who quietly serve behind the scenes keeping flights and planes running smoothly.  God’s “merciful kindness is great towards us.”

He has shown His mercy in our family.  Earl’s mother went home to be with the Lord on July 16th.  We knew she was suffering from “end stage liver disease” but she passed away earlier than the doctor’s best guess.  The whole family was able to fly down to Florida together.  During the peak of tourist season, that is not always guaranteed.  It was good to visit with many family members, many of which we haven’t seen in many years.  After the funeral we traveled up to North Carolina to visit Lynn’s mom, and other family.  Earl would like to thank each of you for your thoughts, cards, and prayers during the funeral and our travels.  God’s “merciful kindness is great towards us.”

So what is on the schedule for the next few months?  By the time most receive this update, we will be back in Alaska.  However, we will need to make a return trip back down to the lower 48 relatively soon.  Based on reports from Mom’s doctors, Earl accepted meetings with our sending church, mission board, and some other meetings during September and October.  The thought at the time was we could be closer to mom prior to her home going.  These are important meetings, so we will need to fly back down this fall.  Oh well.  No moose hunting this fall either.  Combine that with missing the salmon run because of the funeral and… ouch!

Thank you for continuing to pray for the souls in Manley Hot Springs, safety in flying, and the needs for the unexpected travel expenses.  Your prayers and support are making a difference and are affecting souls for eternity.  When our Lord gave you to us for friends, He demonstrated that His “merciful kindness is great towards us.”
