Tuesday evening, Terry and Teresa Allen spoke about being a pastor in RURAL Alaska. Terry is a pastor of a covenant church in Elim Alaska. Elim is just south of the Artic Circle. He shared some incredible stories-some of the hope of the people in Elim but also the challenges they face being the hands and feet of Christ.
Here is the link to their church, and below are some pictures from the event.
The Allan’s brought several beautiful pieces of art made by people in Elim. Several were carved from Be luga whale and walrus tusk
This is called a Hunter’s Mask it is carved from whale and walrus and tells the story of the hunter’s catch.
As you can see Miriam and Jonathan were rivited by the stories.

More tiny beautiful carvings.
There is a lot we can do to help Terry and Theresa as the minister to the people in Elim. We hope to do some projects soon that will be a blessing to them.
