February 2016 Ministry Trip Update
During the winter months ABM staff continue to reach out to connect with pastors and missionaries around the Arctic. The winter is an important time to check in on the villages and their ministry leaders. Last week ABM missionaries Rob Dillingham and Jeffrey Spang traveled to several remote villages in Western Alaska. They made the trip successfully in the 206 after the Aztec came back from a trip the night before with a mechanical issue.
ABM Pilot Rob Dillingham and ABM missionary Jeffrey Spang had Christian leaders to visit and minister to the Bethel area. They made the trip successfully in the 206 after the Aztec came back from a trip the night before with a mechanical issue.
Next they flew out to Scammon Bay that afternoon, enjoying the best weather they had experienced in some time. There they stayed at Pastor Jason’s house where they were able to provide fellowship and encourage him in his ministry work. Pastor Jason gave Rob and Jeffrey a walking tour of his village, including a visit with three church elders. They stayed longer than planned in Scammon Bay in order to visit with the elders before heading back home.
ABM frequently sends small teams of two or three staff to visit pastors and missionaries serving in bush villages. These trips help remotely-placed Christian leaders feel connected, supported and cared for so their ministry and living conditions remain sustainable long-term. We encourage our readers to pray for these leaders and for our ABM staff, that God might be known and leaders developed in the faraway places of the North.
