Every chapter ends with a period!

Well, Jennifer, Gavin, and I got to Kotzebue on Saturday night. We came a day early because the ice fog has started getting pretty bad in Kotzebue over the last few days. The river was still frozen and it was snowing when we left, but thats the arctic. We have been sleeping in the basement of First Baptist Church of Kotzebue for the past two nights. Which reminds me of when dad and I stayed in the basement of First Baptist Church of Ketchikan almost 13 years ago and slept on crib matresses before coming home from our once in a lifetime adventure. We are flying to Anchorage today to see Kim Piepmeier and spend the night before we go to Seattle to spend some time with Grandma Baumann. We are very excited to see everyone and we will be there before you know it. We love you all and will see you soon. Thank you for your prayer and support as we put the period down for this chapter of our lives and see what the next title will be.

Gavin is now standing on his own!

During our discipleship class this Thursday Gavin wanted to take a more active roll in things! Apparently he was curious to what the Bible said concerning the situation. He has been pulling up on his own for a week now and man is he busy.

Gavin loves music. Even when he is all the way across the house I can start to play and he crawls as fast as his little chubby legs can take him directly to the sound. This warms my heart! He must have sat like this for half an hour strumming along as he felt the uncontrolable urge to do so.

Out and About!

Jennifer and I took some of our youth sledding earlier this week and we had a blast! Jennifer even drove our snowgo (Translation: snowmobile) around on the lake for a little while. You know sometimes we get so busy doing so many admirable things that we forget to have fun enjoying God's creation.

The first picture is of Jennifer and I taking a little break on our snowgo. The picture on the left is of Duffy (sitting) and Austin (Standing) taking a breather from their snow boarding.

What a week! We have a school full of Arctic Care personel and have thoroughly enjoyed them helping out in the village. I dont think there is an open room in our school for anyone else to sleep in, but they have been a great help in the community.
The Lord has been doing some amazing things in our lives as well as those lives we have had the opportunity to serve. The Lord has shown me that he dousn't need us! God will work in the lives of those in whome He chooses and we have the opportunity to share about His grace and salvation to the lost. What a relief to know that God is in control of all of our circumstances and we are not responsible for changing people, just sharing and teaching. Lord, thank you for saving us and choosing us to serve you in such a vital part of the world.
Continue to pray for the Northwest Arctic of Alaska and the Inupiaq Eskimos as we are preparing to leave in 3 weeks to be with our family. Pray for John and Kim and the ministry that God has for them here in Kiana. We love you all and look forward to seeing you soon.

Gavins First Easter!

First of all I would like to thank the Lord for His grace that sent His son to die on the cross for us. We had a great sunday and continue to pray for the people in Kiana and the region to come to know Christ as their personal Lord and savior.

I thought everyone would enjoy pictures of Gavins first Easter. We love you all and look forward to seeing you soon.
