2017 Workteams

We are in the planning stages for next summer’s work teams. Have you wanted to visit us? Are you curious how ministry in Alaska works? Do you want to help us get the hangar project completed? Here is your chance! Right now we are planning two separate work teams. The first will finish the front wall and hang the big door with other general construction projects. The second will focus on more of the electrical/mechanical aspects of the project. Go to our Facebook page to find out all the details. Hope to see you next summer!

Winter warm-up

We are gaining daylight again! Although we have past to darkest part of winter we are not past the coldest, that comes in February.

We are enjoying a warm spell this week but are paying for it with high winds. The forecast calls for 90+mph winds in our area. While we will enjoy the potential +40* temps the wind has us concerned. Usually with this type weather pattern we don’t get the brunt of the winds but this system is forecasted to be a record breaker. My guess, from 20+years of watching our weather, is that we will get at least 40mph winds and most likely not get the full 90mph here in Nenana.

The hangar is rated for 100mph winds but only when the hangar door is installed. The hangar has the potential to be like a parachute in the wind with one wall still open. Pray with us that it will hold and that the forecasted winds do not develop!

Just a reminder that we update the TMM Alaska Facebook page with pictures and short bits about daily life and ministry in Alaska.

Dust Devil

The Hangar Project has had a minor setback. On Sunday 7/12/2015 a dust devil came through the worksite and threw around a few building panels and damaged them. One panel hit the outside wall and tore it open. Another panel was thrown into the hangar and swirled around like it was in a drain. Thankfully I had just taken the Maule out of the hangar the day before.

Here is a video of the mayhem taken from some of the security cameras.
