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

October 2011

Greetings from Alaska!  The leaves have changed colors and locations.  They are no longer on the trees, but on the ground.  The water is getting stiff, and the smell of wood smoke is in the air.  Every year, winter arrives right on schedule, and yet, we never seem ready for its arrival.  One day, the Lord Jesus is coming back.  We know He is returning, but just not exactly when.  Are we ready for that appointment?  (1 Thes 5:2; 2 Peter 3:8-12)

Back in 2008, we teamed up with Brother Ronnie Starr to help with a ministry he has called “Operation Saturation.”  Initially, we assisted in brain-storming, fact-finding, videotaping testimonies, shipping, and logistics.  Later, Earl flew either our plane or one of Brother Ronnie's planes with teams to the villages, distributed scriptures, and even had the privilege of preaching in some of the 3-day campaigns.  This summer, the vision that God gave Brother Ronnie for placing one Bible in every house, in every village, north of the Arctic Circle came to fruition.  We will never know this side of heaven the full impact of the efforts so many people made to bring this project to pass.  Thank you for your prayers, and now please thank and praise the Lord for His goodness and faithfulness to us.  He granted safety (Pr 21:31), souls (Ps 126:6), and supplied everything needed (1 Th 5:24).  We are already working on villages south of the Circle.  Please continue to pray that our Lord will be glorified in these efforts.

The weekly services in Manley Hot Springs have been a real blessing.  The Lord is working in lives and growing our little group of believers.  This summer, a family moved “close” to Manley, and the husband recently received Christ as his Savior.  We are told another family will be moving in soon, and since they have two school age children, the school will not have to close.  That's a big deal! The whole family should be able to go some once there is snow, as it fills in all the holes and makes the trip easier on Lynn. She really misses the dear folks there.

There has been some sad news here in Alaska this year.  Three IB missionary families have left their villages within the last year.  There are some facts that make these departures even sadder.  For example, two of these villages are now left with no Gospel witness. There are other villages with souls asking for missionaries to move in. There are many churches in America with Bible trained families who have surrendered to “go where ever”, stacked up like cord-wood, doing little or nothing. Lastly, all remaining missionary families here in Alaska are asking for someone to come and just help.  Please pray for laborers (Lu 10:2).

As far as family news, Jeremiah is well into his 11th grade year and doing better then he ever has.  This is a direct answer to specific prayers of many of you.  You have no idea how much we appreciate your prayers regarding this.  He is involved in the local bus ministry, Master's Club,  and is a huge help to his dad. Lynn was sick about three weeks with bronchitis that turned to pneumonia. It took two rounds of strong antibiotics, but praise the Lord, it's all gone!

Our family enjoyed a couple of family getaways over the last few months. Most recently was a great time with the kids and parents from Jeremiah's school at a soccer tournament in Wasilla. As we traveled down, we were again shown some of the most beautiful views a human could ever see, this side of glory!  We had time to talk to the kids about their walk with the Lord as they were waiting their turn to play. Keep them in your prayers.

Earl and Lynn
