What's the Plural of 'Moose'?

Did you know that a moose can dive up to 5 km for food at the bottom of a lake bed? We also found out they can jump a 4 ft fence, so we will be installing a 5 ft fence in our yard! :)

We can't believe that our departure for Alaska is only 5 weeks away!  Lindsay and I just got back from our last trip to Alaska before the move.  It was a good time for us to get things set-up for the big adventure of packing the kids in the car and driving across the country.  Alaska itself was beautiful, with the snow beginning to melt, and the days being significantly longer than when we were there to interview back in November.  The sun set around 10:30 pm every night, and rose right around 6:30 am in the morning.  The extra daylight was good, as the days were packed full of planning, errands, and the logistics of moving.

Also, we got to celebrate Lindsay's birthday while we were up there.  Lindsay resisted my tempting offer of bowling at the local bowling alley, or a movie at the Orca theater, and we ended up celebrating with a cinnamon roll at the local bakery (aptly named 'The Moose is Loose'), and a walk on the frozen beach.

This trip also gave us a chance to get to know some of the staff really well, which was a huge blessing.

Please continue to pray for us as we raise support.  We are right around 60% of our goal, and God has continued to raise up missions-minded folks who are willing to support us.  Support-raising is a very humbling process, and we are so grateful for the people that God has brought into our lives, as well as looking forward to the many other people who we know we will meet in the future with the same passions for reaching the world with the Gospel.

Please also pray for the students as they finish out the semester. Amazing things are continuing to happen on campus. If you want more details about specific prayers and praises please let us know and we will send you our newsletter.
