If you never experienced the Alaskan Native people's despair, lack of hope, isolation. Let me tell you it is like a soul being tortured, I have never witnessed such depth of pain than during my 11 1/2 years in Alaska, amidst the smiling faces, and daily lives hidden of what lies beneath what you see from the outer man. Each has a story that tear your heart apart.
Jesus is opening a window in the Arctic and it ain't the global warming. It's the Holy Spirit! When it is cold outside, think of the Arctic nation, cold that relates to pain, cold unimagineable, cold that touches you no matter how much clothing you have on. So I have determined I will never be cold again since living in Nome, Alaska. Even in the arctic world, God has not forgotten who lives there, nor the anguished cries at night, the children running in the night trying to get away from hurt. The young adults that carry years of pain that is at a level I have never recognized living in the lower 48. I am determined, and answering the call to provide for Nome, Alaska what I can to bring Jesus Christ to the ones I left behind. I have not forgotten them. So I speak it in Jesus Name, Holy and Precious, Lord open the window above Nome, Alaska, break the arctic freeze over the people, the Holy Spirit move, move, move, into lives and hearts of the people. I know you will exceedingly, abundantly, above all I can ask or think accordingly to the power that works in me. Worship You, when I don't know what you are doing, you are moving. Let me tell you Lord, thank you, if you don't do anything else for me, you have done so much for me, that I am behind in my worship.

You can't be selfish and worship the Lord. You must come to God, must believe in Him as Lord, Savior, King. He is a problem solver.
If you stopped moving in my life right now, it would take me a 1000 years to give you the praise that is due your Name.
If I don't see Him work it out as I thought He would, it is because I asked too low. He is actually working it out, better, more capable than I could ever ask, think, or imagine. You are so wonderful. Look what you have done already.
You are holy, holy, holy. Thank You a million times a million, to the infinite! Let my words multiple across the heavens forevermore!
PS: Readers; Do you have an emergency? How do you get out of the situation? PRAISE YOUR WAY OUT! Wait right where you are, He is coming to speak to you...
