Our Visit to Alaska

Denise and I got to got to Alaska the week of June 14-21. We had a great time visiting our friends and many supporters while we were there.

The week started with a small miracle from God. The night before we left, we found out that our flights had been changed and we were to arrive in Anchorage late Sunday night and would miss the evening service at Chapel of the Cross that we were supposed to speak at. We prayed and the next day, the airline was able to re-route us to arrive on time for church and they didn't even charge us a change fee. PTL.

We spent the next couple of days working and visiting our friends at HDL, taking care of loose ends, and getting our taxes filed. On Wednesday and Thursday, Dennis, Denise, our good friend Bill Tuk, and DJ, invaded the lake house and installed tongue and groove pine on the ceiling. Kimmy and Chad have done a great job turning the lakehouse into a home. It is looking great.

They we went down to Soldotna to spend time with our parents. We stayed with Dennis and Jodie Linnell where we helped install a new window in the living room. We also got to visit with Peter and JoAnn Biegel on the beach as they were doing their annual subsistence set netting for red salmon. In three days, er caught, cleaned, and filleted over 100 fish. Dennis left feeling like a real Alaskan.

We really enjoyed our time celebrating Father's Day with our families, many brothers and sisters, and kids.
