We wish you a Merry Christmas!

We are so thankful this holiday season to be serving the Lord in Nenana. We continually talk about how much we enjoy it here, and how we feel that we have been placed here for a reason. We thank you so much for praying and supporting us so that we can do the Lord’s work.

We were very pleased this last week to be asked by a local organization to help fill the food boxes for the needy family in our community. Bill spent one whole afternoon carrying turkeys, canned food, milk, eggs, bread, etc. from the trucks to the tables, to the boxes, to the people. He was able to meet a bunch of new people, both in the white and native community.

We have had a great time listening to the school Christmas concerts, participating in the class parties, and attending movie night fund raisers. Rebecca helped the first and second graders make reindeer antlers for their play, The Littlest Reindeer. And her picture was in the paper because she helped make a quilt that was auctioned off as a fund raiser for the senior center.

We would ask for your prayers for the Blair family, who recently lost a young son due to heart trouble. Please lift up in prayer a man who is coming to Bill for spiritual help. Also please continue to pray for our elders as they guide our church through the necessary paperwork required by the State of Alaska.

We have also had answers to our prayers. A friend, Wanda, was having a lot of foot trouble and after a visit to a specialist is now pain free. Baby Silas is home from the NICU and doing well. We are breaking attendance records at AWANA nearly every week. The Lord is doing great things!

In Him,

Bill and Rebecca,

Prayer Request

A young man from our community was just life-flighted to Seattle. Please pray for his healing, peace and comfort for the entire family, and for wisdom from the doctors.

The young man went home to be with his Lord on Thursday the 13th. The service is Thursday, Dec 20th.

Remain in prayer for his family. They know they will see him again someday, but their loss and grief must be hard to bear. Pray for their continued peace and healing.
