Kingdom Air Corps in Sutton, AK

We flew up to Alaska on July 9. We have been staying at the Kingdom Air Corps Ranch in Sutton, AK with a SEND missionary (Dwayne King) and 50 other pilots/mechanics in training. For the past few days, we've been getting all 7 airplanes ready to fly 4 hours north (north of the arctic circle) to where we will be having camp for some eskimo kids.

Andrew & I were able to fly up to a Christian Urgent Care Center (closely associated with SEND) to look at a potential work place in the future. They are an urgent care center with the capacity to keep 3-4 patients overnight (if needed), as well as some doctor's offices (for routine care). Anyways- that was pretty neat to see a Christian clinic out in the middle of Alaska.

30 of us will be flying/driving up to Brooks Range Bible Camp today for 1 1/2 weeks. We will fly in tomorrow to several villages to pick up about 20 young kids. Then on Monday we will fly them back and pick up a group of teenagers for the second week. Then we head back on Saturday (7/24) to Anchorage and then Columbia.

Here are some specific prayer requests as we prepare to go to camp:
- Safe travels (the weather seems good right now, but please continue to pray that it would remain clear and the smoke from the fires would blow the other direction.)
- Wisdom & discernment of the pilots as they fly through the mountains/clouds & make critical decisions.
- Patience- especially for me as we work with teenagers who culturally lack a lot of discipline (pregnancy only magnifies that weakness)
- Salvation of many souls and that God would use them, in turn, in instrumental ways to bring the Gospel back to their villages.
- Clarity of the Gospel message that will be shared
- Continue to pray for God's plan for our lives involving missions- that it would be so clear where He would have us be full time. At this point, it seems unclear but we're going to continue to trust Him to show us.

Thanks again for all your prayers and support!!!
