In 2008, I made a trip to Tanzania. While I was there, I met a Great Man of God, who devoted his life to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone he met. He was in need of a building and I promised to do what I could to help. Knitting for Tanzania is my attempt to help him build a church building. All profits from sales of my knits go directly to help with his building project.

Kotzebue's gain. Gramma's loss too. Not that she does not want them to move, she does. She knows it is good for the family. She did it once when she was young too. To Alaska even. Guess it is in the blood.
They left this morning for Anchorage and on Monday they will fly to Kotzebue where their daddy will be working for a company called Alaska Commercial. When we lived up there it was Northern Commercial. Kotzebue is the training store. After six months they may be asked to stay there, or they may be given the opportunity to move to another store. It could be in Anchorage or even in a more remote village. The boys will probably learn to drive a snow mobile before they learn how to drive a car! Kotzebue is only about one mile wide and three miles long. It is above the Arctic Circle and right on the water. I think is where Sara Palin goes when she wants to see Russia.
Stan and I have been wanting to go back to Alaska, now I think we have the perfect reason.
By boys, Gramma Loves You the MOST. I will miss you so much, but I am so proud of your mommy and daddy for taking this step and giving you the opportunity to see more than Vancouver Washington. Be careful of the Polar Bears!
