On Sunday night Dr. Jay spent a couple of hours sharing a meal and a message on our identity in Christ with a local life group. What a blessing to build relationships and share God's word with believers from across the continent!

The Yak

by Katrina Hulme | March 29, 2022 1:16 AM

We are serving with The Yak (Youth of Alaska) this week, which is an after-school youth center. We were able to hear about the heart & vision of the Yak from Andy who helped start it, and then we played games with the youth that came in today. 

We met some awesome people and had some great conversations! (We think we should have a youth center in Georgia called YOGA...)

Thrifters Rock

by Rich Bothe | March 29, 2022 11:36 AM

Another location we have the opportunity to serve at is Thrifters Rock, a Christian thrift store. The first goal was to help with spring cleaning of the storefront.

Morning Coffee Run

In Wasilla there are coffee huts everywhere and the coffee is really good. Bella ordered a cinnamon roll not knowing it would be the literal size of a plate!

Container Storage

by Rich Bothe | March 29, 2022 4:16 PM

Thrifters Rock has so many donations that they ran out of space inside. In this photo, some of the team were unloading boxes of books and carrying them across an icy parking lot to bring them into the store for sorting, pricing, and placing on shelves for purchase.

Ninja At YAK

by Rich Bothe | March 29, 2022 8:14 PM

This afternoon we were back at the YAK where the kids taught us a game called Ninja! We spent a few hours hanging with these kids playing various games, talking, and just loving on them. Another game we learned is called "zoogle." We’ll let the kids explain how it works.

AURORA!

by Grant Fritz | March 31, 2022 2:21 PM

The entire group left the church at midnight to get a view of one of the greatest light shows in all creation. The Aurora Borealis lit up the sky while we sat on top of the mountains for over an hour. Creation cries out His name!

Dogsledding!!!

by Katrina Hulme | April 2, 2022 3:22 AM

Today we got to experience Alaskan dogsledding in Talkeetna! Many of these dogs ran in the Iditarod only a few weeks ago, and some of them are Iditarod champions from past years.

We also learned about the amount of work that goes into dogsledding, met some full-time mushers, and played with the puppies. It was an amazing way to end our week in Alaska!

It will be bad to keep this alone to myself. I came across the best  Advance ATM CARD hacker  who really helped me to get 200,000 dollars which has a 5,000 daily withdrawal limit, they are very honest and diligent in their work. All I did was to order for the ATM card  and  after  4 working days  I received my own ATM card from the delivery company with the card pin number. To my greatest surprise, the ATM card works at the ATM machine in my country   . Contact her via: [email protected] WhatsApp number +33758779954

Life has taught me that you can’t control someone’s loyalty. No matter how good you are to them it doesn’t mean that they will treat you the same way. I have been married to my wife for years with no idea she was cheating. Suddenly i started noticing changes in her behavior, i suspected something was wrong. So i confided in a friend who convinced and introduced me to Walt a hacker. He was able to hack into my wife mobile phone, Text messages, Call logs, IG, browser history, deleted messages, Emails and WhatsApp . It seemed as though my life was spinning out of control getting to find out she has someone else. I filed for a divorce just could not continue with lies. If you feel you are been exploited in your marriage and you need proof. I suggest you contact Whatsapp no +14106350697 [email protected] Mail him for your spy and hacking job and be free, just like me today.

Hey, guys!!! I have my loyalty. My blank ATM card can withdraw $5,000 per day. I got this from Mr. Georg last Wednesday and now I have €10,000 for free. The card withdraws money from any ATM and there is no name, it is not traceable and now I have enough money for me and my 4 children. I'm thrilled I met Mr. Georg because I met two people before and took my money not knowing they were scams. But I'm happy now. Mr. Georg sent the card through DHL and I got it in two days. Get one of him now. See, it's giving out to help people, even if it's illegal, but it helps a lot and no one ever gets caught. The card works in all countries worldwide. Hurry up and email via georgbednorzhackers @ gmail. com Text, call, or WhatsAp: +1(262)355-8285          Other services offered were: Cloning ATM cards Hacking Bitcoin ATMs with malware cards Recovering Lost or Stolen Cryptocurrency  Hacking Western Union transfers, MoneyGram transfers, Bank transfers, PayPal transfers, Cash app transfers Recover Hacked Social Media: Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok, Gmail, Yahoo mail, and websites.
