Since the family returned to Alaska in July, they have had the privilege of several people visiting from the Lower 48. Pastor & Mrs Randy Perry, Pastor Patrick Stone (COG Depew, OK), and Bro Boyd Smith and son, Denali (Kellyville, OK) came to look over the Downtown Soup Kitchen on Friday. Rev. & Mrs. Larry Landress along with Bro & Sis Bradley Cottrell, their son, Kyler, and Sis Cottrell’s mom came up this past weekend to be in service. Hope Church was blessed by their ministry on Sunday. They ministered through song and message and there was a great response in the altars. Praise the Lord!

 

Julie has just finished up her first week as a full-time employee at the Women’s Shelter. When her alarm goes off in the middle of the night, she has to be reminded of why she is doing it in the first place: to be a vessel of God’s love to these precious ladies. She also has the responsibility of organizing the volunteer list for each night. There has been some challenging moments, but God continues to be her strength.

 

Bro Martin was asked by a faithful member of Hope Church to come and see her in the hospital yesterday. Susan* is scheduled for an 8-12 hour surgery today. While Bro Martin was there, a Catholic chaplain came in to visit Susan*. While he was going out in order to give them some time, Bro Martin overheard Susan* telling the chaplain that he was her pastor and she went to Hope Church. Just 6 weeks of Hope Church being established and these precious people are feeling identified with the family and church. To God be all the Glory! If you think of Susan* today, please pray she will experience the peace and love of God in a special way.

 

We want you to know on a regular basis how we appreciate your faithful support of Hope for the Home Ministries.
May God richly bless you!
