Tanalian Bible Camp

I've been to this Tanalian Camp once a very long time ago when my husband was a student at what used to be called Arctic Bible Institute. I vaguely remember giving my testimony ---and CRYING!

I get to return to Port Alsworth's Tanalian Bible Camp (Site includes webcams.) with the Alaska Freedom Band today. (Lord willing!) I'm hoping to see my sister there! My younger sister, Bec. I have five sisters. Millie is my oldest, then there is my almost twin (we are the same age right now, I'm just almost a year riper) Kotya, and Ruth, and Becca and then our youngest sis is Rachel. Mom is visiting Rachel this weekend while I will be away.

Doug and the team went to the camp last year and they are invited back again this year, so that is a good thing! I am looking forward to spending time with the Christian's out in the Iliamna area. I am thankful that I get to tag along once again with the AFB! (Last time was to Togiak.) May Jesus Christ be praised all weekend and may we all become even readier for Christ's soon return!

To be together and worship Jesus Christ is a good thing. To worship Him in one Spirit, is a gift from God! Paul says "being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace." This is what Christ began! We are one. Is that not amazing? No more divisions. Many kinds of peoples coming together, becoming ONE through Christ, and praising Him. Ah, but the evil one comes around blindsiding (catching unawares, especially with harmful consequences) those overcome by the flesh who have lost sight of their salvation and been persuaded to cause divisions among God's people. Though sad when it happens, there is always forgiveness and restoration through Christ. Help us all to be aware of the evil ones tactics. Guard yourselves against his wily ways!!!! He is a destroyer, nothing good comes from him.

"Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all." Paul. (Ephesians 4: 1-6.)

Have a great weekend!
