Funds are low again, hallelujah!  That means God trusts us and is willing to leave His reputation in our hands.  --C.T. Studd--

Dear Prayer Partners                                                                           July/August 2015


Thank you for praying for the Lord’s work here in Manley, and the summer's activities.  Our Lord has answered your prayers!  All of the aircraft maintenance are accomplished and the flights have been safely made for Bible camp.  Unfortunately, 2 or 3 flights were

missed due to a mechanical problem and me not feeling well enough to fly.  Thank you to Brother Ray Allen who gave many hours towards getting the plane ready for the flights.  They tell us that over 2 million acres are burning across the state, which makes landing difficult.  But all flights were made safely.


Regarding the ministry in Manley, we thank the Lord that six of our young folks were able to attend camp again this year.  That number was down from what we expected due to 3 children traveling to Tennessee to visit family.  God worked in hearts and two of the camper’s moms were even able to travel the 1 hour boat ride to the camp on Wednesday night's service.  What a blessing Rock Crossing Bible Camp is to our youth in Manley.  The camp was able to go on even as fires burned around our area.  About 4 families who regularly attend church, have been on edge for the last month due to the wild fires burning less than a mile from their homes.  Since I’ve had to leave for treatments, I’d like to give a special thanks to Bro. Dave Crispell for again, filling in as the preacher, visitor, as well as helping with the many projects around Manley. 


Thank you to those who prayed for the work that needed to be done on our home in Manley.  It always amazes me how our Lord answers the prayers of our prayer warriors.  Bro. Jimmy Book traveled up from Immanual Baptist in Kenai, Alaska to start things rolling.  He hung sheet rock, re-insulated one bedroom, and fixed the problems with the roof.  Unfortunately, he discovered rotten wood and mold in much of the insulation in the ceiling.  Otis Roland, Ron (and Ronnie) Sommerdorf from Hamilton Acres Baptist in Fairbanks came out to finish the roof when Jimmy Book had to leave unexpectedly.  Next, Randy Saxon from Pioneer Baptist in Palmer and John and Nathan Pinnix from Independent Baptist in Anchorage came up again to finish attaching a utility room to our house that we hope to put our well pump in and get running water again this year.  It’s hard to put into words how grateful we are for this help.  It enabled me to leave for cancer treatments with this heavy load off our mind.  Summer time is short and I sure didn’t plan to spend 5 weeks of it away from home.


Many have asked about my health.  After an enormous amount of research, discussion, and prayer, we decided to travel to Knoxville, TN for Proton Laser treatment for the prostate cancer.  For my age and stage of the cancer, it seems like the best route to go.  The treatment will last until early August, if all goes well.  The prognosis looks very good.  I’d like to thank those individuals who have thoughtfully and prayerfully given love offerings towards the costs of flights, transportation, food and lodging for 5 weeks.  Even with insurance, this event is going to cost several thousands of dollars.  I wouldn’t have started all the repairs to the house had I known then what I know now.  Your cards and notes have encouraged us.   Thank you for your prayers and sacrificial gifts.  Please pray I’ll be able to minister to those I meet while I’m down here.
