Our sweet Spurgeon family has moved to our beloved Misawa for the next few years. They visited the Towada Winter Festival recently; I've been yearning for Japan. Yes, we are content, and we deliberately look for the joy of being in Alaska. There is much to celebrate. Our hearts were broken for the nation of Japan...and from time to time the longing and urgency to be serving there is strong. I knew we would have fun and make new memories - connected to past memories - at this event.

After church today we drove to Eagle River, picked up Josiah, and went to see the snow sculptures. Here are some of our favorites.

This was my favorite one. "Not all treasure is gold." It's a dragon protecting his treasure.....
|Thanks, Alex! I wasn't tall enough to get a face.|

I thanked Michael for driving all the way to Anchorage to see a few snow sculptures.
He replied, "No, we drove all the way to Anchorage to find Misawa."
Is he a great husband or what?
He knew....he just knew.
