Volunteers Fly Thousands Of Miles To Help Alaskan Church

Galatians 6:9 NCV We must not become tired of doing good. We will receive our harvest of eternal life at the right time if we do not give up.

It will be a very merry Christmas for Nome Covenant Church.

The church in a town of under 4,000 where the average temperature stays well below zero is on the far reaches of the Alaskan frontier. The church met in a building that was 75 years old and was literally being held together by cables.

The church’s pastor lived in fear of the church collapsing.

“Our old church was 75 years old, it was built with available materials at that time,” Pastor Harvey Fiskeaux told Fox News. “I was actually fearful it was going to fall in.”

The church found an outpouring of Christian love from Samaritan’s Purse, the Christian humanitarian organization known most for their Operation Christmas Child outreach.

The group flew 140 volunteers from all over the country to help the church build a brand new church and outreach center next door to the old church building.

“As a church we are there to help the infrastructure of family, children, and youth,” said Fiskeaux. “We are trying to help people’s lives.”
