"Here is some Moose Meat."

I had an opportunity to preach a couple of weekends ago. The next week, a gentleman I had not met showed up at church with some "Welcome to Alaska" game meat and fish.

Right now, we have salmon, elk, and moose in our freezer. Turns out that this guy is on the road kill list when a car hits a moose here in Anchorage. He gets a call, drives to where the dead moose is, and butchers it right there. I guess the city comes after that to clean up the rest...not sure really. So this week, our family grilled us some Moose for the first time. It was quite tasty...we enjoyed it, especially knowing it was "road kill."

OK, yet another classic story... especially for those of us in the "lower 48." =)

Certainly one thing about this blog is that it will give your family a great record of all your Alaskan adventures. But although I have no idea how this story could be used, I'm thinking there are gonna be lots of future sermon illustrations on this blog too!

lots of love from our family to yours!

I am ready to hear more about life in Alaska - any Sarah Palin sitings? Oh and someone on FOX news was talking about Moose Meat in Alaska before the election and I just laughed and thought about y'all! Hope you are feeling well Lindsay. Are you guys coming home for Christmas?? Love y'all, Happy early Thanksgiving!
