Fun Filled Weekend Ahead !!!

We have been getting ready for a fun-filled weekend! Clint has been asked to help with a middle school boys retreat that Covenant Youth of Alaska (CYAK)  is doing in White Mountain. Clint will be in charge of the worship and hunter safety course! Clint's heart is a heart for God and I'm so thankful that he is able to be part of missionary work-it's what his dream has become! I know God is doing wonderful things through Clint and it seems that it's getting more and more every year. I'm excited for what the next few months bring him as well!

Over 35 boys will be attending from the surrounding villages in the Norton Sound region. It is a wonderful and fun way for these kids to be discipled and mentored! They are going to be doing a lot of fun,  and crazy activities: building snow shelters, learning about gun safety, survival, and most importantly, become men of God. There is an adult mentor that is going to be with 3 boys throughout the retreat during small group time and individual work (making shelters). In a way I'm kind of bummed that I can't participate, well because there are no girls aloud!!

On Saturday, Clint and I (with the help of some folks here in White Mountain) are putting together a Carnival fundraiser for the kids to go to Bible Camp this summer! Yes, these village kids have to raise most, if not all the funds to travel to Unalakleet for a week long summer camp. We wanted to do something a little bit different than a bake auction (we have done it for four years straight at the end of the year). We wanted something that everyone can enjoy.  We have about nine different activities ranging from Wii games to face painting to bean bag toss to fish pond to a pie throwing contest and baked goods along with popcorn! Please join me in prayer as this is a fundraiser and we need money! :)

Today after school we got down and dirty to sort all the toys for the prizes. All the toys and prizes were donated from a church in AK and another church in Texas. Some things were donated by locals here in White Mountain as well. These kids sure are loved and I am so thankful that we have wonderful people to help them. A big thanks to you...You know who you are!

We aren't done yet. There was another 2 boxes of goodies that was given to us by the White Mountain church and I had to sort through those afterwards!

I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend. Ours will be filled with games, good times and good fellowship as we mentor and reach out to kids across the Norton Sound region!!
