We so appreciate all the quilts being sent our way here in Alaska. They are such a great way for us to give a practical expression of God’s love here in this cold climate. They are so appreciated by people and they open doors for us to share the Gospel. We pass them out to people here in Naknek, as well as take them to many area villages where we fly. We have taken several boxes to a closed village (due to strong Russian Orthodox influence) and we were welcomed there solely because of quilts. We also have sent quilts to villages where there has been severe flooding and people had lost nearly everything –the quilts were received with tears. Additionally, we shared dozens of quilts last summer with international visitors to Naknek during fishing season.
