Alaska Update – June 2016

Dear Family and Friends,

The first Sabbath services held in the village of Birch Creek was on Sabbath, May 21. Thirteen volunteers from the Fairbanks, North Pole, and Delta Junction churches in Alaska arrived in three different Cessna aircraft—one was AWA’s Cessna 207 and the other belonged to local Seventh-day Adventist church members.

Birch Creek has been considered a Episcopalian village for its entire existence. For many years, no services were held and no minister visited them. Through contacts initiated by one of the village elders went on record saying, “We want to make sure that whatever is preached or taught, that it is entirely biblical, including that the seventh-day is the correct day for worship.”

This was a welcome surprise; the Holy Spirit had prepared the way. Birch Creek is a very small village, located some 110 nautical miles north of Fairbanks. This development is significant in that it is linked by family connections to other nearby villages that are much larger.

What used to be an Episcopal Church is starting anew with Seventh-day Adventist Services. The “priest’s cabin” will now house the Adventist missionaries when they come to provide spiritual refreshment to the residents of Birch Creek.

Please keep this new church and its members in your daily prayers. We thank you for your continued financial support for the Alaska project. We see the workings of the Holy Spirit, opening the hearts of the villagers; yet, there is still much to be done.

Thank you for partnering with AWA in making Kingdom friends!

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
