A socially distant update from Alaska!

Yes, the Corona virus here. Alaska is sheltering in place to protect one another from the spread, especially our rural populations from exposure.

With very limited healthcare resources in many parts of the state, our people are vulnerable. We are also an isolated state, even more so than usual. The Canadian border is closed, interstate travel by flight or boat is restricted in many cases and limited in others, and even travel within the state has been mandated to stop. Traveling from town to town on the highway system is highly discouraged here unless you are a care provider or essential personnel. What limited manufacturing facilities we have in state have been requested by our government to transition to making swabs for testing, face shields, and other PPE. As a regular course of life here, the majority of goods Alaskans use (beyond natural resources) are shipped or freighted to us. We are feeling the pressure of keeping supply chains open and working, but they ARE still functioning!

All that being said, my pantry and fridge remain stocked; my toilet paper count is fine; I'm in good physical health; and I'm only going slightly stir crazy and talking to my dog and robot vacuum, Jeeves. ;-) Ministry is different these days, but also very much still happening. Relationships are key. Staying connected to those we serve and meeting needs are our priorities. I'm grateful to continue to serve Jesus in the great state of Alaska! Thank you for making ministry possible through your support!
