Trip Back to VA

We had to say goodbye to Laika, a sad day.  Thanks to the Lanfear family for taking her.

Don't see this sign every day!
For all  of you Trekkies, we stopped in Vulcan, Alberta and saw a starship.

We have had a good trip.  Had a blown tire on a rough road in the Yukon, but otherwise smooth sailing, including our time on the Alaska Ferry.  Thank you for all of your prayers during our trip.  We are currently visiting Sue's family in Nashville, TN, and plan on being back in Pearisburg early this week.  We already miss our friends from Alaska, but look forward to seeing our friends and family in Virginia.

Please pray for-
Deborah Crowe, Karie Pepe, Melodye Gilbert, Sherri Cox and all of the nurses and other staff who are "holding down the fort"  at Cross Road Medical Center

A new long term doctor at the medical center.  The Yeager family is scheduled to visit at the end of this month and we pray that if this is God's plan, that doors will be open for them to come and serve starting this fall.

Danny and his family.  He played basketball with Case, and was in a serious accident about a week ago.  He is still in ICU.

For our family as we return to life in Virginia.  Russ starts a new job(sort of his old job), Luke goes back to Liberty, Bridger starts classes at New River Community College, and Sue, Case and Ansley resume life and school in Pearisburg.  For wisdom as we seek to continue to serve and glorify God as we return home.

This will most likely be our last post,which is a little sad.  Thank you for all of the prayers, packages and support over the last 2 years.  It has been a great experience for our family as we were able to be a part of the Lord's work in Alaska and He has shown Himself faithful in our lives.  We praise Him for the opportunity to serve in Alaska and thank you for all of your love and support.

  1. We miss your faces! Love the pictures - Tim is jealous of the giant fly rod! I definitely have the same ones of me standing in the Mississippi headwaters and hanging off of Babe's nose in Bemidji when I was a lass! Praying you have a smooth transition back into old-new routines. Love from Alaska!
