BUT IF THE 'WORLD' GETS INTO THE CHURCH,

THE CHURCH WILL GO DOWN IN DISGRACE!"

Our 2012 Vacation Cruise to Alaska's Inside Passage




We started out on our trip from the Port of Seatle ...


... on the MS Westerdam with great expectation for adventure.  We were not disappointed.

We were blessed to be on the cruise with Dr. David Jeremiah with at least one church service per day.  We were blessed.  With 350 attenders worship and praise and time of fellowship.  Tim LaHaye was with us also and brought two morning devotions. 


The scenery was breathtaking with snow capped mountains, evergreen trees, and the blue, blue ocean was a perfect contrast for beauty.


 A visit to glacier bay was exciting to say the least.  With eagles, whales, sea otters, dolphins and seals.  A sight to behold.

The temperature ranged from the low to mid 40s.







The Indians in the area have used Totem Poles to hand down history from generation to generation.

We now have video files of our worship services posted to the Internet.

Continue to pray for us as we seek to serve the Lord here in the desert.

  2. Very refreshing to look at those pictures during our hot dry summer. (Predicted to be up to 100again this week, and only 3 inches of rain since June) Great catch of the eagle fishing.

  7. Hi There! Glad you enjoyed your Alaska cruise. We lived in Ketchikan in 1977 where Ted was youth pastor at Gateway Baptist Church. We have a photo of me standing in the doorway of the totem building holding our oldest son as an infant.

    Let us know if you are up this way during the week so we can get together.
