The past three months have been nothing short of amazing thanks to Jesus. He has orchestrated so many opportunities and so many miracles have happened. I hope this will be the first in many posts like this, reviewing the past three months, six months, or a year.
Three months ago today (7/10/17) we were trying to get out the door for our impending trip to Alaska. In the weeks before, we had been hesitant in our decision to head on up, but we felt we had heavenly approval, so we threw our barely-unpacked clothes into suitcases and left on July 10th.
After a gorgeous trip through Yellowstone which consisted of constantly trying to find an open campsite (no easy feat), we went north into Montana. Again, beautiful. Then we crossed into Alberta, visited Lake Louise, and went west into British Columbia where we met up with the Alcan Highway in Dawson Creek.
Eventually, eight days and a few bruises after our original departure from South Dakota, we arrived in Kasilof, Alaska.
Words cannot describe what the Lord did on the Kenai Peninsula this summer, but it was truly amazing. We met people from all over the world (literally), and have plans to visit those people in the future.
Lives were changed, and we definitely got some much-needed rest seeing sights in Homer and Seward and Cooper Landing and Moose Pass and… Okay, I’ll stop now.
But anyways, it was a time of trusting God and following through with His calling to travel the world at His beck and call – and it was awesome.
On the way back, we traveled through Yukon once again, and ended up spending time at Lower Post First Nation (the Canadian word for Native American reservation) in British Columbia for two nights.
Then our travels resumed through the rest of B.C. and Alberta before crossing through the same border crossing the last time, except not stopping by Banff National Park, and instead going through the pretty city of Calgary.
Then it was just a matter of time before we trekked through Montana and Wyoming, tried to get a hotel in Wyoming (but didn’t because it was like 800 dollars due to the eclipse), and made it back to South Dakota at like 3 in the morning.
Since, we have ministered worship in churches, done inner healing and deliverance, and finished school! And now we’re just waiting on the Lord’s go-ahead to start pointing our vehicle south.
