On the Hillside – Sharing the Journey – Thanksgiving rumbles

November 30, 2018 - Author: Editor

Psalm 104:31 – 32(NASEC)

Let the glory of the Lord endure forever; Let the Lord be glad in His works; He looks at the earth, and it trembles; He touches the mountains, and they smoke.

Greetings from a shaken Glennallen, Alaska,

We thought we should put this first of December update out a bit early to inform you all that we are safe and unharmed and experienced only a long shaking this morning when the earthquake occurred at 8:29 am.  Our day had just barely begun.  I, Scott, was at the radio station working on getting the news computer working again so that we could get the stream of news that we normally receive.  But God planned it that I would be able to get it fixed just in time to receive the plethora of stories we would soon receive as Alaskans began to seek information on all the details of the quake.

Our coworker, Michelle Eastty, did an awesome job of staying on top of all our news sources and she did an excellent job of reporting it to the community as details became available.  It was quite a morning of watching how Alaska reacted to an earthquake.  It was another “first” for our children here on the field.  Michelle summarized what happened well in her email update “No damage here in the Copper River Valley, but it was a 7.0 magnitude earthquake centered just north of Anchorage, which is 189 miles southwest of Glennallen. Between Wasilla (150 miles from Glennallen) and Anchorage, many of the roads have huge cracks, so there are detours and traffic was backed up for miles. No injuries were reported, but there have been some fires and gas leaks. Some roofs caved in and police are warning residents about possible structural damage to homes.”

November has been a good month!  We very much enjoyed having the work team from Nebraska; they accomplished so much in such a short time.  We also enjoyed having the Eaton Grandparents around during that time also.  Scott is getting many projects finished and resurrected 2 more computers this past week that will help the stations continue to run a little smoother.  He is also enjoying getting familiar with ‘On Air’ operations in the broadcast studios again, though finding it to be a little more nerve wracking than he anticipated.    We were supposed to visit our Church in Anchorage this weekend, but have delayed that because of the earthquake.  This also means our monthly grocery trip is delayed as well….

Sarabeth continues to lead the kids in homeschooling and still finds time to make dinners, do the laundry, and take care of the family every day!  Kara just finished an Art class that was offered through the local school and Matthew just began getting tutoring in Spanish through the homeschool assistance program also.  We celebrated Elaina and Sarabeth’s birthdays and enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving in our new home!  God is good!!!

Thank you for being a part of what God is doing in our lives as we serve Him here in Alaska, we are grateful to our God for the team He has called together to help KCAM stay on the air broadcasting the Good News to the Copper River Valley.  Please let us hear from your world in how God is answering prayer and working in your lives.

In His service,

Scott and Sarabeth Hill and family

Psalm 107:22 (NASEC)

Let them also offer sacrifices of thanksgiving, And tell of His works with joyful singing.

November Greetings,

October was a very full month for the Hill family!  There was unpacking, setting up home and house, learning Alaska culture again, two trips into Anchorage to stock up, Sharathon at the Radio Station, Home school starting, and seeing God work through it all! It was topped off this Sunday evening, November 4th, with a spectacular view of the “northern lights” in the 20 below zero.  They stretch from one end of the sky to the other in their typical green hues with tints of red, and then all of a sudden they burst forth in waves, dancing to unheard music, in brilliant red, green, white, and tints of blue.  It was truly a demonstration of God’s handiwork!

This Friday, we are looking forward to greeting a work team coming up from our church in Manley, Nebraska, and we hope that God will give them a show like He did for us tonight.  They will be here a few days to help with the cabin construction for Michelle Eastty.  We have seen much progress on this building project, including getting heat installed this past Saturday.  The kids are excited too, because Grandma and Grandpa Eaton are on the work team and will be staying with us while they are here.

Scott has been able to address some of the many issues on the list that KCAM had ready for him and he has added a few more things to the list as well.  Sometimes you can’t fix what is broken without first fully breaking it and understanding why it was broken in the first place.  “Little technical fires” are slowly being put out as he has time to work on them while he settles into his job.  Praise the Lord that Scott was able to “resurrect” the Bomgar remote access appliance this last week!  This will help all the staff in being able to have remote access from home or on the road when they are “on call”.  Please pray for a new situation that has occurred – our tower’s top beacon light has shorted out and will need replacing and climbing the tower in these cold temperatures can be dangerous for the crew we get to replace it.

October was also a Birthday month in our family, Lydia turned 14 on the 19th and Scott celebrated with his nephew Kyle Hatfield on the 29th.  Well, actually we celebrated the birthday on Saturday, the 27th, since we were in Soldotna to pick up the Suburban that Uncle James drove up to Alaska for us.

Thank you for being a part of what God is doing in our lives as we serve Him here in Alaska, we are grateful to our God for the team He has called together to help KCAM stay on the air broadcasting the Good News to the Copper River Valley.  Let us hear from your world in how God is answering prayer and working in your lives.

In His service,

Scott and Sarabeth Hill and family
