Serving In Alaska

We Made It!

by Terry Millikin | May 26, 2024 3:46 PM

It was an extremely long day of travel, not arriving to our host church until after 2 AM Alaska time. But believe it or not, we could actually see for half of our 4 Hour drive well into the night because they have nearly 18 1/2 hours of daylight up here right now. We had a wonderful time of worship with our host Church and we look forward to serving together this week as they do an excellent job serving their community.

Only God can do this!

The beach near Nikiski, Alaska. A good spot for a group hike. The state birds were in abundance. MOSQUITOES

It has been Raining

Most of today it was rainy so we worked inside painting the fellowship hall. Tomorrow we will start on the stairwell going down to the dining hall.

North Star UMC

by Terry Millikin | May 27, 2024 6:58 PM

We are serving in a very beautiful location for a sister church-North Star UMC, in Nikiski, Alaska. They are such an active church in their community. They have a food pantry and work very closely with a local shelter and all of their members are actively participating in serving others every single week. We’re so excited to partner alongside them.

Creating a Large Food Bank Garden

by Rick Millikin | May 28, 2024 1:40 PM

We’re excited to serve at a very large local food bank here on the Kenai Peninsula. They feed thousands of people and we’re helping set up a new greenhouse with raised beds as we add topsoil.

They were recently donated an irrigation system. We will prep the raised beds so they can begin watering their new crops.

A “Real Grind”

by Rick Millikin | May 28, 2024 1:43 PM

Starbucks has donated mini bags of coffee-whole bean that we are grinding up for the clients of the food bank. It’s funny that we grind up really good coffee beans and put it into Folgers containers. What a surprise when they brew it!

One of the nicest grinders we’ve ever used. We would love to have one of these at home.

Time to dig a ditch and connect it to the green house. This is going to be a fantastic garden.
