I’m very excited to go to Alaska.  I can’t tell you just one thing without telling you all about Port Graham!  God has been so faithful to us from selling our house and furniture, to providing a way for mom and dad to go to Alaska to meet the villagers. 
We are excited to share with you what’s going on in our life and how God is working through us in Alaska.  They say that the Lord works in mysterious ways, I say that’s an understatement!  Look at how God is working in mysterious ways in our life—see what I mean?

Many people ask what excites me about moving to Alaska.  It’s really hard to answer that question because there are so many things to be excited about!  One of the pretty exciting things is a new start.  We have been in Sherwood our whole life!  I mean, we’ve been to Mexico, Virginia, Washington, D.C. and those were very fun, but not quite like moving to Alaska!

I’m also excited about the new people and new friends we’re going to meet, new kids, and a new culture.

I am thoroughly impressed by God’s grace.  He totally has this adventure planned out for us. That is another thing I am excited about: to see what miracles God works!  Man, He has sure worked a lot in me!

My family and I feel God has called us to move to a remote village in Alaska. Where? A little village called Port Graham. Yep, the village needs a Pastor so we’re going to move there. I’ve never been to Alaska before so I’m going to tell you what I imagine it to be like.

I imagine it to have big, snowy mountains on one side and huge rolling hills with thousands of trees on the other side. I think the town will have a 7-11 or convenient store, no Costco!

I think our house will be very small but cozy. I bet it will have four rooms and one bathroom (unfortunately) and a small kitchen to go with it. Outside I think it will have a green door and an orange and purple welcome mat. Our house will probably be on the main road (which I hope is not very big). The main road will probably be gravel with a few pot holes.

And that is what I imagine Port Graham will be like. Hmmmm….I wonder what Port Graham will be like in real life. The End…and the Beginning!
