“This week while traveling on the ferry I had the opportunity to spend some time with one of our Junior Soldiers. He's nine and was asking some deep questions about what will happen to the people on Earth when Satan is thrown into hell. The conversation turned to sin and heaven. To one of his comments I responded that every one has sinned, even me. He looked at me with big eyes and said, "really"? I replied, "yes." He then patted my hand and said, "well, I think you are doing good now." :) I love the children of Angoon! ”

“When had a great Mothers Day's Service with 5 Guests attending with their Family. We presented 22 gift bags with Women's Devotional books to the ladies attending our morning Service. We also provided 3 ladies in the community with the gift bag, two at the Police Station and one at our local Grocery Store.”

“We have a Junior Soldier that will be enrolled by the General at Commissioning. She has one lesson left, and has had her Jr. Soldier Pledge memorized for quite some time. This week we completed collages that illustrate our calling to serve our communities locally and globally, and our responsibility to be good stewards of God's creation as well. We are looking forward to celebrating this special commitment at Congress in a few weeks. ”

“This week one of our teens received his uniform and mistakenly thought he was being enrolled this Sunday, when it is scheduled for next week. He sure looked sharp in his uniform. What was even more heart warming was that two of our Junior Soldiers turned up in uniform to support their friend. It s nice to see this newest Soldier is already influencing others for Christ and The Salvation Army!”

“We had a wonderful men's group of 150 people. They spent time in prayer with each other and worshiping God.”

“We had a successful Spring Fashion Show and Auctions on Saturday, May 6. The event raised $1,600: half for Congress expenses; half for Women's Ministries. Several new people visited on Sunday morning. Our monthly potluck lunch was held following the Sunday worship. Plans are being made for National Salvation Army Week. It was another great week in the Lord!”

“Were having quite a bit of trouble with our Internet so not sure if this would get through. Luckily our connection with God is stronger than ever and were on the move out here in Haines. We are looking forward to our first open-air of the season next Sunday. God bless.”

“What a wonderfully blessed week as we continue to serve here in the Mat-Su Valley! One of our blessings this week, I would say, is that we applied for a grant to have a digital reader board sign, we received it and not 24 hours after our sign was up and running we had a lady in our parking lot. When we went to talk with her, we discovered she had tears streaming down her face, it was relief! On the reader board is our phone number, the services we provide, among other things. She had been driving around not knowing what she would do. Accessing social services assistance is not something she knows how to do. Her husband had been laid off, they have 5 children and food was dwindling and utilities were due along with rent coming up. On the reader board it read, "FOOD BOXES" and "UTILITY ASSISTANCE." so she pulled in with a sigh of relief. She was connected with our Social Services staff and received some needed assistance and new found hope. God is so very Good all the time! ”

“Sunday one of our newest Junior Soldiers made me so proud. He was given the opportunity to help his dad load wood, which I knew for him was a big deal as he's the middle child of the family and doesn't often get these opportunities to work with his dad. However he asked his dad if it would be OK for him to go to Junior Soldier classes instead.”

“We celebrated National Salvation Army Week by: setting up an information display; teaching SA History -101 to the children in our After School Program; and serving cake, beverages and discount coupons at the Fairbanks Thrift Store to more than 125 people. While the Corps Officers were in Haines, Connie Beckwith, HLS, and Gail Mattice led the Sunday services. Majors Joe and Flo were in Haines to celebrate 45 years of marriage and upcoming retirement with family and friends. They participated in the Sunday morning service and conducted a blessing at a fish camp along the Chilkat River at 4 mile. The Haines Corps Officers were great hosts!”
