Today, 4-19-18, our Suburban and 14 foot trailer full of most of our worldly belongings left for Alaska without us!?!!
The last 2 weeks have been a flurry of busyness, emotional highs and lows, spiritual encouragement, and a whole lot of learning to Trust and Wait on our God in whose hands we are in. His loving arms embracing everyone we encounter, using us as vessels of His testimonies of what He IS doing in the lives of those who love Him. We are both recipients of His love and witnesses of His work in others.
Two weekends ago it was our hope that it would be time to take our final trip and head up north to Alaska. We thought that we were ready to be sent, but God instead has sent our stuff ahead of us and made us more mobile, clearing out some extra weight (15,000 lbs. of it!). Whatever the reason He has… I, Scott, feel more like a gypsy than ever before. He has allowed our stuff to go, but not us, yet. On the other hand, we can be even more certain now that He is calling us to Alaska!
Two weekends ago (April 6-8) was the first Missions Conference we have attended in many years and it was an awesome demonstration of how God is working all around the world. We were reminded once again how The Church (all of Christ’s followers) is supposed to be proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ to everyone we meet. Proclaim it to kids in our back yard (Jerusalem), to our communities where we live (Judea and Samaria), and to those that are traveling around the world (the remotest parts). It was a very encouraging time and we enjoyed meeting and fellowshipping with new missionaries.
Last week was filled then with Sarabeth’s Brother James arriving and working on our Suburban’s front suspension and prepping it for him to take to Alaska. What a blessing to have a brother that is a very skilled mechanic. We ended the week on Friday with an enjoyable presentation with a small group at the pastor’s house.
Please pray for more opportunities to share what God is doing in our lives and what He has called us to. Pray also for Him to raise up prayer and financial partners so that we can meet the financial need of $6500/month. The Joy Media board and KCAM Radio desperately would like to have us there, but also want us to be able to concentrate on meeting the need that we have been called to fulfill. Discovering Partners in ministry needs to be fully complete before we get busy with our field ministry.
In His service,
The Hill Family
Brother James Eaton with our Rig!
