It got up to 10F degrees today in Fairbanks, Alaska. Altogether, a heat wave of sorts. It is the northern most corps in the Western Territory, the USA and maybe North America. I expect someone will chime in to let me know. That’s fine.
Majors Kevin and Tina Bottjen are the Corps Leaders here, with much to do in this impressive community. If you’re going to serve here, the cold cannot be a negative factor for you. In fact, it’s a beautiful place to live and work. The air is clear and the people are good folks. We flew over Mt. McKinley (A.K.A. Denali) which is most majestic and toured the World Ice Art Championships on foot. All amazing.
The Sunday School Class and Worship Meeting were both worthwhile. God blessed us by good music and good fellowship. It’s a very friendly place.
Thank you, Lord for all you are doing in this corps and the community.
“But now that you’ve found you don’t have to listen to sin tell you what to do, and have discovered the delight of listening to God telling you, what a surprise! A whole, healed, put-together life right now, with more and more of life on the way! Work hard for sin your whole life and your pension is death. But God’s gift is real life, eternal life, delivered by Jesus, our Master.” Romans 6:23 MSG
