NEWS - Gherkin Alaskan Migration of 2017


Any guesses as to what this group is doing?????

Izaak and Cory are booking airline tickets to ALASKA, and renting U-haul trailers to carry their household goods up the AlCan.

I believe Bella and Arielle are scouting out the route for the AlCan travelers!

Did you catch that CORY was booking tickets and renting a U-haul! We're so very excited.

Easter afternoon Cory told us he and Arielle would be joining the great Gherkin Alaskan Migration of 2017.  We knew they had decided to transfer their New Hope credits into a degree from Lancaster Bible College.  Lancaster and New Hope are partner colleges.  Transferring will allow them to finish their degrees online. This will save money, and they felt it was time for a change.  They were no longer location dependent and were praying about staying in OR, moving to WA or, as it turns out, moving to Alaska.

I am STUNNED, and am simply watching what God is doing in amazement. I joked with Michael I wouldn't move to Alaska unless he promised me a hot tub. He did.  Ultimately, we both agreed we wouldn't retire in Alaska as it would be too far from the Gherkins.  JaRissa got married and moved to Alaska - and made living in Alaska look really fun. Josiah is moving up  in May 2017. BreZaak decided to move to Alaska.  I told Izaak I needed a sauna. He said he can build me one. I'm jokingly holding out for "10 acres and a llama" at this point. ::snort::

I always dreamed of living near all my children. But the GHERKINS were settling in OR, WA, TX....and we planned to move to Japan. I figured, with our ministry lifestyles and the military lifestyle, it was an unrealistic dream. So many dreams have shifted in the past two years - this one has unexpectedly shifted into reality.πŸ™ŒπŸ’—πŸ™Œ

This summer Krista will be at Maxwell AFB. The other eight Gherkins will be in Alaska....tears of joy (Jamin is spending the summer up there).

All that remains is to find our dream home. 🏑 Many are planning to land there as they transition.

All I can think about is the song, "Glory, glory we adore Him, God of Glory, God of light". Glory for God from some low times to now some wonderful glorious times. Love ya'll.
