This is a live view of the Tanana River here in Nenana. The structure on the ice is how we know when spring is here, it has to move downriver 100′ for it to be official. For more information on the tripod and the ice going out go to the Nenana Ice Classic’s website.
Winter is very slowly loosing it’s grip (National Weather Service comments). We joke here in Alaska about the seasons we have; Winter, Construction, and Hunting. We are planing a construction project of our own this year.
As you know our house is rather small by many standards. Our current 826 square feet gets a little tight sometimes. The girls are growing and need more space, homeschooling is getting more involved and we desire to entertain guests more often. Our goal is to add a dining room and extra space in the girls bedroom. The projects page has more information.
I know I have talked a lot about attending the Shepherd’s Conference lately but it was a great time of encouragement and fellowship for me (Adam).
They have posted all of the sessions online. Here are links to the Video and Audio of the sessions. I’ve been going back and watching them and wow what a great week. Two of the better sessions in my opinion are Session 4 (Voddie Baucham) and Session 9 (John MacAuthur). I have embedded those two sessions here.
The first day of The Shepherds Conference was great! The speaking was excellent, the fellowship incredible and the singing is unreal. There is no way to describe what 3,800 men sound like when singing A Mighty Fortress Is Our God!
Last week Lyndy was able to come with me as I traveled to Seattle for Airmen’s business. It was great to see her mom and have some time for just the two of us. A friend stayed with the girls and they seemed to enjoy their time too.
This week Bill Troxel and I are traveling to Southern California to attend the Shepherd’s Conference. I attended last year and I’m looking forward to another great time of teaching and fellowship. Look for updates as the week rolls along.
