I’m sorry that I missed my blog assignment last week, but I was deep into the Alaskan wilderness and frankly glad to be there. I had the opportunity to spend 9 days in the Fairbanks area, preaching in churches and doing some camping/hunting. I had the privilege of preaching seven times in two churches. The first Sunday I preached at Hamilton Acres Baptist Church, where one of our recent graduates, Dan Glass, is serving along with his family. They are doing very well. The second Sunday I preached at Pioneer Baptist Church in Moose Creek, started by another of our graduates and built with the help of one of our missions teams. Just before getting on the plane to come home, I was able to preach at a Sportsman’s Banquet in Fairbanks. The opportunity to preach the gospel and see some come to Christ was sweet and refreshing.
The week was physically challenging, but mentally and spiritually refreshing. We got to camp, canoe, and hunt in the warm sun, the cold rain, and even the blowing snow. It was great to go and great to come home. For those who care about such things…I did connect on a bull moose. I’m looking forward to our fellowship this Sunday Morning as we observe the Lord’s Supper together. I am expecting God to do a real work in all of our hearts. See you there, Lord willing.
