One of our young worshipers was mesmerized by the Fontanini Nativity figures. His eyes were wide in appreciation for the beauty of the pieces and for the power of Christ. “Would you like to hold Jesus?” I asked. He shook his head in the affirmative.
Think about it. The God who holds infinity in His grasp, the One who is in matter yet far beyond matter, the One who knows truth and is Truth, resting quietly in Joseph and Mary’s arms.
The NFL Thursday evening game provided quite a few fans a fun and enjoyable evening. In the end the “Boys” were more than the “Pack” could handle.
Maybe these two teams will meet again in late December.
Paula, Billy, and Leah should be happy.
My good friend and Jesus follower, Tristan, traveled to his homeland and has recently returned to Anchorage. A good picture of sun and surf is good for my soul. By the way, have you noticed the palm trees mentioned in Revelation?
Tristan gave me a wonderful gift from the Philippine Islands (The Philippines has 7000 Islands). The gift is a replica of a Spanish Galleon ship. It is the same type of ship that the missionaries boarded when they took the glorious Gospel to the Islands. The ship was made by a man who traveled many hours to Boracay Island just to make a bit of money. Tristan bought it for me from that gentleman.
Everyone, enjoy the beach!

Three of brother and sister Hansen’s adult children and several of their grandchildren are part of the MCA worship family. Brother and Sister Hansen, pictured below, worship here too, when they are resting from their work as missionaries in Bali, Indonesia.
One of our worship family’s dear little children could use God’s healing touch. Valley, daughter of John and Danielle, has an infection that will be no match for God’s great power. Join me in prayer for Valley’s total healing.
Our church family loves to throw a huge month long party celebrating the birth of our Lord. Decorating our facility requires hundreds of work hours. Our 2007 theme reflects the glocal success of Jesus’ ministry. When you enter we think you will find the world waiting. I’ll keep you updated on the progress. Our decoration team’s work is inspirational.
Dale and Mary Umphrey and Chris Raymond have been blessed to be part of a Bible study in the Thai language. Most of the participants, who are from Thailand, are reporting God’s supernatural and miraculous power in their lives. Some have been gloriously saved while others have been miraculously healed!
In the photos below you will see the group preparing their Christmas choir as well as studying the scripture.
One of the group leaders made a very shocking statement, “Pastor Kent, Anchorage has three Thai Buddhist Temples………. and no Thai Christian church.”
Let’s get that changed. Immediately!
