We try to explain it. It is hard to describe, harder to believe and difficult to accept. We tell folks that the only way to truly understand it is to be here and see it for yourself. Life in Alaska is hard, ministry is a lifelong process and sin has terrible consequences. Sophia Lee has accomplished what Lyndy and I haven’t been able to do, her article published by World Magazine does an excellent job explaining these things clearly.
We are friends with the Roger and Carole, folks featured in the story, and are ministry partners with Kokrine Hills Bible Camp. We know the other folks in the article as well, they are all good people.
I encourage you to read this story and get a glimpse of what ministry in Alaska entails. Thank you for partnering with us as we have lived and ministered in Alaska for over 20 years.
