It was an honour to travel again with Carry the Cure on our 9th annual Iditarod Outreach. We visited the communities of: Arctic Village where peace is tangible and the Northern Lights danced for us; Fairbanks and North Pole where hospitality and brotherly love is a language strong in the DNA of those we met; Circle; Chalkyitsik; Venetie, a community where G’wichin men boldly danced for the healing of their people; and Fort Yukon.
Along the way, we did school assemblies and community concerts. The tour was gruelling because in each community, the team set up, tore everything down again, travelled by air to the next community, prepared their own meals, etc. Our team was an incredible group from across Alaska, Canada and the lower 48. Of course, we had amazing pilots from M. A. R. C. Aviation flying us safely from one place to the next.
In Venetie, we met a firefighter who has been kept from working because of a back injury. We prayed for his back and God healed him. He started jumping up and down, because the pain was completely gone.
We received a great reception in every community. The bleachers were full in our concerts and people responded to the love of Jesus. We interacted with everyone, from the very young to the elders of the communities. It was beautiful to see the love touch their hearts and revealed in their faces.
Now is the time to see healing in Alaska; to see the end of suicide, depression, substance abuse, domestic violence, and all that steals from the lives in our cities and small communities.
Thank you for praying for us and our families.
