Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

The Alaska Zoo

We've been enjoying wonderful fellowship with the folks here in Anchorage. We had a full Lord's Day yesterday, presenting our future ministry in Uruguay, enjoying a delicious potluck lunch with the church leadership as well as a restaurant outing after the evening service with some of the church folks – and, most of all, asking for prayer. (Do pray for us!)

God's people here have been very good to us! As I type, John Mark is in the church kitchen, trying his hand at baking a Fresh Red Salmon Fillet. By "fresh" I mean that the fish was swimming up the river two days ago!

On Saturday, we enjoyed an outing to The Alaska Zoo here in Anchorage. (The pastor's family has a year pass and invited us to come along.) The cool (wear-a-jacket!) weather was a definite highlight!

This zoo specializes in Alaskan animals, but they do have some others as well. Elizabeth's favorite was the Bald Eagle. (There's a framed photograph of a Bald Eagle hanging in the church's apartment where we're staying; it was great fun to see one up close – in real life!)

And the favorites for the whole family were unanimously Alaska's Three Bears: Black Bears, Grizzly Bears, and Polar Bears.

As we travel, we have been abundantly blessed as a family with these types of icing-on-the-cake experiences – and we are humbly thankful.
