Lowly the Worm Bows Down To Jesus in Busy Town

A couple of years ago I attended a seminar at the Tallahassee Christian College and Training Center in Tallahassee, Florida. Mark Geppert with the Founder of the SE Asia Prayer Center was speakin…

The 12th of December marks one month that I have been living, working and ministering in Alaska.

The people, mountains, glaciers and land of Alaska are all beautiful.  There are many natives who still live in what they call “dry cabins” which have no running water, bathrooms or electricity.  They value cardboard boxes because they can be broken down and are put up on the walls to keep the wind from coming through the below freezing winters.

Below is one of the “nicer” dry cabins. Many of them are rented out to tourists, students, outdoors men, hunters and fishermen who come to live and get the Alaska experience!  Living here 24-7 for all 12 months…. takes “True Grit.”dry cabin.jpeg

Alaska has so many special places…. Nikolski, Alaska is one of them and has about 30 people living in this tiny community.

ALASKA – this beautiful far Northwestern state  is a hard life for many…emotionally, mentally and spiritually. There are many people I have met that have been praying for Alaska for many years and there appears to be a real move of God here that is exciting to be part of.

God loves Alaska and His heart is for their salvation, deliverance and healing. His desire is that for all of us.  He is delivering me each day from a lot of per-conceived ideas and ungodly ways.   Each day I feel His love growing not only for Alaska but for me and I wonder “Why Me?”  He answers me, “Why Not?” Below are pictures of where I had breakfast Sunday morning with Jesse and Bobette at “The Roadhouse” in Talkeetna, Alaska.  It is where trappers and mountain men would stop in to spend the night and gather for conversation and fellowship.  I caught a picture of the sun going down around 1:30 our time (lol)  I call it Alaskan Gold….

Sometimes  I feel so ill-equipped  but knowing that Jesus equips those he calls gives me great comfort and joy. I know He called me here to live, love and laugh with others and helping them in each day…just as I am…. I have such an opportunity to share Christ’s love to such a special people. Alaska living makes “Little House of the Prairie look like a “cake-walk” but every day is an adventure and I am loving it! Again, I thank everyone who is sharing in this journey with me…

The joy of the Lord is my strength and I’m looking forward as I continue to meet and make new friends and family here in Alaska.

Loving, missing and wishing you were here, I remain,

Roads in Alaska are hazardous!

snow-wrecks

Below is Glenn Hwy that 60,000 people travel in and out of daily.  The first week I was here there were three head on collisions and three fatalities….

One mother of three, and her mother were on their way here from Chicago and they lost everything after driving off of a cliff. They were homeless for four months. Roads in Alaska are hazardous and two sets of tires are needed, one for summer and special studded ones for the harsh winters.

In order for me to be able to get to places in Alaska a dependable vehicle is very much needed.  If you would like to help me with this need  please designate this on your donation form.  I have approximately $2,000 toward my $6,000 goal.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and Holiday….I remain,

Baby It’s Cold Outside! Free Frankincense This Month!

10366081_10205388555619027_3818893792303428024_n
Baby it’s cold outside! Get Your Free Frankincense….
Frankincense is an extremely precious oil you can use for a million different things, and secondly, you can get it for free this month. Yes, FREE. It’s a pretty big deal, and here’s why:
Why You Should Care About Frankincense

1. Frankincense is a very precious oil that is difficult to source in Somalia. I consider it an “investment” oil. (It retails for $93/bottle)

2. It’s good for ALL THE THINGS– immune system support, neurological support, ovaries and skin blemishes, mood lifting, and much, much more. It’s also gentle enough to use on animals– I put a drop under my tongue to re-set my brain cells.
3. You can get it for FREE in December when you add essential oils to your shopping list in the form of my favorite starter kit. FREE — that’s what I’m talking about!
4. And… just to make the deal a bit sweeter– I’ll personally send you a 15 mL bottle of Purify blend ($24 value) too— it’s my favorite cleaning/deodorizing oil.
That’s two free oils when you get started in December. And yes– I truly believe oils are an amazing investment for now and in the future.. I consider essential oils to be one of the most valuable tools I have put in my supplies of health and wellness..
Their uses are endless, and they are easily one of the best investments I’ve ever made. When I moved to Alaska, I brought ALL of my oils and I use them everyday for  cooking, for cleaning, and even for crisis and trauma care.
If you’ve been considering getting started with oils and haven’t taken the plunge yet, please give this kit as a gift to yourself, or drop a not-so-subtle hint to anyone asking what you want for Christmas this year. 😉

Here’s How It Works:

Image
2. Fill out the rest of your info and tell doTERRA where to ship it.
3. Your free frankincense will come right in the box automatically with your order. No coupon codes required.
4. After you get your kit, I will personally send you the Purify cleansing blend ($24 value) from my stash (a new bottle, of course!)
5. You’ll now have your own wholesale membership too (think Sam’s Club or Costco), you can use whenever you like. You’ll save 25% on everything you purchase from here on out! And no– you do NOT have to sell the oils or purchase monthly if you don’t want to. This is a simple membership without strings attached. 🙂
5. You’ll also be a part of my support system because I don’t want to you get these oils and then not know how to use them! We have private Facebook groups, exclusive trainings & webinars, giveaways, and lots more. You’ll get a personal mentor/helper, too.
What’s Inside the Home Essentials Kit?
  • 15 mL Lemon
  • 15 mL Lavender
  • 15 mL Peppermint
  • 15 mL Melaleuca (aka tea tree oil)
  • 15 mL Oregano
  • 15 mL Frankincense
  • 15 mL Digestzen (digestive blend)
  • 15 mL Breathe (respiratory blend)
  • 15 mL On Guard (immune blend)
  • 5 mL Deep Blue (muscle & joint blend)
  • Petal diffuser (has an optional light and 3 settings)
  • Wholesale membership ($35 value– included. This is a no-strings-attached membership– you do not have to sells oils or order every month)
The kit, with everything I just mentioned, is $275. When you start with this kit, versus just ordering these same oils individually, you save $86. When you add in the free Frankincense and free Purify, that’s a combined savings of $203. See, told ya it was a good deal!

What’s the Catch?

In order to qualify for this limited promotion (the free frankincense and the free Purify blend from me), you need to click the link below and sign up by December 30th, 2016 at midnight. After December, the freebies will be gone.

OK, I’m ready!

From the Baby in the Manger to the Man of Galilee

alaska-manger

I heard a song of sweetness,
As it cleft the morning air,
Sounding in its blest completeness,
Like a tender, pleading prayer;
And I sought to find the singer,
Whence the wondrous song was borne;
And I found a bird, sore wounded,
Pinioned by a cruel thorn.

thorn-bird

I have seen a soul in sadness,
While its wings with pain were furl’d,
Giving hope, and cheer and gladness
That should bless a weeping world;
And I knew that life of sweetness,
Was of pain and sorrow row borne,
And a stricken soul was singing,
With its heart against a thorn.

alaskan-woman-and-child

Ye are told of One who loved you,
Of a Saviour crucified,
Ye are told of nails that pinioned,
And a spear that pierced His side;
Ye are told of cruel scourging,
Of a Saviour bearing scorn,
And He died for your salvation,
With His brow against a thorn.

crucifixion

Ye “are not above the Master.”
Will you breathe a sweet refrain?
And His grace will be sufficient,
When your heart is pierced with pain.
Will you live to bless His loved ones,
Tho’ your life be bruised and torn,
Like the bird that sang so sweetly,
With its heart against a thorn?
E. E. Bynum 1907

Suicide in Alaska

About Alaska’s Suicide Rate:

suicide

“There are lots of theories. Maybe it’s the long dark winters or the isolation of the largest state in the U.S. While these factors may contribute to the problem studies suggest the roots may go deeper.

According to Patrick Sidmore, health planner and research analyst at Alaska Mental Health Board, historical trauma endured by Alaska Natives, as well as adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), put certain groups at a higher risk of suicide. Historical trauma among Alaska Native populations can have a lasng affect for multiple generations. Sidmore cites forced placement of children in boarding schools, destruction of culture and overt racism as examples of trauma. “These events can trigger the poor outcomes such as substance abuse,” he explains. “This can perpetuate problems down the line.” Looking At Alaska’s High Suicide Rate – Kaysie Ellingson

suicide-2
For over 30 years, I have served in ministry and this is the first time I’ve not worked my own business and a full-time job. Sometimes, I’ve worked two to three jobs. I’m not old enough yet to receive Social Security, but I know that I’m supposed to go to Alaska. Alaska is ranked 3rd in the States for Suicides, 7th for alcoholism and alcohol related deaths, and is on the top of the list for prostitution and drug addicts. My length of stay will be determined once I get settled there with the team of G3 Alaska Ministries.

There are many who feel called to help, but could never go.  I am looking for those who could help me by becoming part of either my prayer team or financial support team.  All contributions are tax-deductable.  Please consider me in your end of the year giving or 2017 budget.

Ice Road Trucker Missionary

Ice Road  Trucker Missionary

  • As I pulled down the storage shed door, “I wondered if I would ever see any of  my belongings which held so many precious memories – again?” 
  • This is what it must have felt like for the early missionaries who packed their belongings in their coffins and said Goodbye to family members, heirlooms, friends, etc.
  • Not only did I say goodbye to stuff that day, very soon I would say goodbye to my sons, their wives and my grandchildren.  I was off to Alaska – The Last Frontier!I remember the moment years ago when I sang so emphatically:
  • “Lord, here I am send me to the nations.”  Little did I know that would be to many nations– all in one state!

    alaska-florida

  • Alaska Facts You could fit Florida in to Alaska 10 times! One-fifth the size of the Lower 48, Alaska is bigger than Texas, California, and Montana combined.
  • Alaska is also far-flung: 5.3 times wider (east to west) and 3.2 times taller (north to south) than Florida. From north to south, Alaska measures 1420 miles, the distance from Denver to Mexico City, and east to west 2500 miles, the distance from Savannah, GA to Santa Barbara, CA. Florida has 262 times more people per square mile.
  • If Florida’s population density were the same as Alaska’s, only 64,996 people would live in Florida rather than 17,019,068 (based on 2003 data). Alaska has 8 times as much inland water (in lakes, reservoirs, and rivers) as Florida. In fact, Alaska has 3 million lakes over twenty acres big. Alaska has more than 50% of the entire U.S. coastline, or 6,640 miles. Florida has 1,350 miles of coastline!

 

Beach Picture - Copy

On numerous occasions when I shut storage doors; I knew that someday I would return, unpack and set up a home where food, fun, Bible studies and laughter would eventually be shared again with family and friends.  The past few years in Pensacola have been joyfully shared with family and dear friends, however I was never able to unpack and set up camp. 

It has been a little like the Israelites in the wilderness. The Israelites had to move on when the cloud by day or the fire by night prompted them to follow. So in planning for this change, I felt a shift as I shut the door – it was different. All of the makings of a home; furniture, dishes, sheets, blankets, curtains, decorative pillows and cooking utensils were now gone and I feel a new season ahead!  As my friend Debby calls it, “You are a tramp (I prefer the word “traveler”) for the Lord!”

I am also saying goodbye to family, friends, my church home, and a climate that is very palatable year round. The comforting peace of the Lord has helped me through the emotional – letting go of these precious moments in order to say;

“Yes, Lord, I’ll go…. Send Me!  I’m excited to meet  and greet my new friends and family!

The nostalgia of this moment reminds me of the words to the song Elvis would sing, “Memories pressed between the pages of my mind.”

Then I heard the voice of the Lord say to me,

“It’s enough.”  

I questioned, “Your grace?”  He said,

“Yes, My Grace is enough but  Jesus’ sacrifice is enough to carry you on through the next season, rest in Me and in the provision, purpose and power that I will provide for you.”

I will put My laws upon their heart, And on their minds I will write them,” Hebrews 10:16b

HE HAS ALREADY PREPARED THE HEARTS AHEAD!  

 

Jesus sacrifice contains the provision  and the grace for what I need for the journey ahead.

A few months ago I received two very confirming words: 

1) I would be a mother to the nations, and
2) I would be fully satisfied finding the treasures God had planted in the people and the path ahead.  Isaiah 54:11b-12  says;

I’ve been asked several times from friends and family… What is a crisis and trauma care missionary and how will live?

What is a missionary?  mis·sion·ar·y ˈmiSHəˌnerē/  

We are all called to “GO” – The Word Missionary is not a scriptural word, but is used to explain how the disciples and others followed Jesus’ command to “Go” and make disciples.  As a believer and disciple of Christ, we are all under the same mandate. The method of our “going” may look different, but whether it is here in America or a foreign field, the mandate to share the gospel, teach  God’s Word, and equip or mentor others is the same!

“The Lord Jesus did not express His commission as a desire or a wish or a premonition of what might happen in the future. He spoke it as a command. He ordered, “Go . . . make disciples . . . baptizing . . . teaching”. These words were not an option to be considered among other options by those to whom He spoke. He here was presenting His marching orders for His disciples which were to be obeyed, no matter what the result might be. And failure to obey these orders would rightly bring into question whether one truly was a follower of this Master.” David Merck: Pastor

Missionary – noun

 a person sent on a religious mission, especially one sent to promote Christianity in a foreign country.

synonyms:  Evangelist, apostle, proselytizer, preacher

adjective

 of, relating to, or characteristic of a missionary or a religious mission.

“missionary work”

So, my commission is to go where God says to go and do what He tells me to do.  This is a daily, hourly and even sometime minute by minute process. Crisis and trauma strikes when we least expect it, or even sometimes in the middle of great men and women of God who are working hard to follow God themselves.

It is important working in the midst of caring, to self-care.  Please pray that I will take my own advice! Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers!
