Q. What towns in Alaska don’t have churches? I would like to come and start a church. Would like a building donated by the town and an apartment provided. -Lance
A. Well, Lance, I don’t think it’s gonna happen! Don’t mean to sound negative, but I really don’t think there is any town in Alaska without a church. I mean that. Even the small villages have their mission stations. Missionaries have been active and sowing churches in Alaska for many, many years. I believe that any town big enough to be able to donate a building and provide an apartment, is going to have about a couple dozen churches! Our town of Wasilla, which isn’t considered a big city, although nice sized, has about 58 churches. And I was just counting the ones listed in the phone book! I’m sure there are several that are not listed.
I am not saying that people in Alaska don’t need God. Of course they do, but if they don’t know God, it isn’t for lack of opportunities to do so. If you want to come to Alaska to work for God, you need to come knowing that you will probably have to work at a job to provide for your living and then be open to ideas and opportunities to do more of what you are thinking about. God bless, BJ
