“I have but one candle of life to burn, and I would rather burn it out in a land filled with darkness than in a land flooded with light” -John Keith Falconer
I read this quote in a book I was perusing last week about missions and I laughed out loud because we are traveling to a state that sees 19-20 hours of light per day this time of year. Despite the hours of sunlight in the summer, parts of Alaska – like any other place – battle deep darkness.
If I have one prayer, it is that Sutton could experience the strength and abounding love that only true community can bring. I am looking forward to the relationships we will grow and strengthen in our time there….which starts in FIVE DAYS!!!
We ask for your prayers and love as continue to prepare our hearts and pack our suitcases!
Love it! God bless you in your preparations and journey!
