Happy 2013 to WMF Readers From Alaska

We’re happy to be able to share with you in the upcoming months a glimpse into our lives and what God is doing here in Southwest Alaska. We welcomed the New Year with moderately warm temperatures here in Naknek…well, for Alaska that is.  🙂

We had an enjoyable Christmas season full of programs, fellowship, a blessed Christmas Eve service, friends visiting and yummy food. Our Church and the Community Church put on a joint Children’s Program that Lacey was able to direct. It was a lot of fun and the kids did great! Malachi was in the Wise men scene for about one minute as boy Jesus.

Jeremy has been busy with a wide variety of projects, thankfully mostly indoors. He’s been doing anything from helping out with radio station repairs and upkeep, to babysitting Malachi on Lacey’s Bible Study days, to fixing (and re-fixing and fixing again) the hangar heater, to leading Wednesday Evening Bible study, to airplane maintenance, etc. Lacey and Malachi have been staying active at home with some trips to the local libraries’ story-hour, visiting a friend and outings to church.

Just yesterday, Jeremy and Pastor Jeff Swanson were able to fly over to Aleknagik, a small village approximately 45 minutes away by small plane. It was a beautiful, sunny day with a high temperature of -10F and no wind. Still, it was a blessing for them to go with quilts (thank you to those who have been making them!) and to fellowship with some in the community. They have been trying to make it over there for quite some time.

Thank you for your prayers for us and the towns and villages of Southwest Alaska! God Bless you!

Jeremy, Lacey and Malachi
