Rain, rain, go away...

Good morning and here is your Alaska update.  During a yummy dinner of halibut chowder we were greeted with some liquid sunshine here in Alaska.  Our hosts at Lamb of God Lutheran Church do a mid week meal and invited us to join them.  They made some great food and the chowder was a hit with the team.  Some of the members of the church have also graciously decided to grill some halibut and salmon for us on Friday.  

I hope the rain does not put too much of a damper on VBS today.  Our Point Mac team does VBS mostly outside so they will be stretched today doing things inside and under some canopies.  Please keep them in your prayers.  The rain is supposed to let up by tomorrow but here in Alaska, if you don't like the weather, just wait ten minutes.  

Yesterday we got some laundry done and in the evening the team headed for Independence Mine at Hatcher Pass which was a working gold mine for many years and closed  in 1951 (more info here and here).  We had another stunning drive up to the mine and stopped by some rushing water.  The team took a ton of pictures as well.  

Tonight is Family night so we will be out at our sites for dinner and a short program.  We are hoping for a good turnout.  It is kinda hard to believe that tomorrow is our last day of VBS.  The sure has been flying by.  Once again, thank you for your prayers and support.  We sure have been feeling it up here.  Until tomorrow...
