First Days in Alaska!

We are full of feelings as we make this transition...joy, loneliness, sadness. It's tough to start over relationally (we just did this in Jan 07 when we moved to LA), but we are so hopeful and confident that this is right where the Lord has us.

Pictures speak louder than what I can articulate at this point in our journey here..so here you go:

Watching the sea planes take off and land at Lake Spenard!
A "baby moose" in the backyard of the house we were staying at. The sucker was huge. The kids were singing..."moosey, moosey, moosey on the loosey, loosey, loosey!"
New friends. These are the Cowell girls. There dad and I will be serving together at ChangePoint Church.
Jacson with Drew and David Schulte on the 4th of July. Nice view!
4th of July pic in front of our new house...at 10:30 PM.
Sillyness on the 4th...at 10:30 PM!

JAson and Lindsay: We are excited for you and your family as you begin a new adventure in Alaska. Our prayers are with you, especially you, Lindsay as you leave your family and CA behind. May what lies ahead be worth the cost!! Keep us posted. Jason, are you getting to do what you love?? We loved the pictures of your family as well. Dee & Barbi
