NBC in the Park: Day 3

Happy 4th of July!

I have now been in Alaska on the first day of summer and enjoyed the true midnight sun moment and been in Alaska for the 4th of July, complete with fireworks set off in downtown Anchorage at midnight the morning of the 4th.  I did miss out on the normal 4th of July festivities...cookout, watermelon, hot weather...yeah, especially the hot weather!
Another hike in the morning for some, I stayed back and worked on some staff stuff and Skyped with our Pastor back home, and lunch prep duty for others.
The afternoon found us back in the park with several fewer children due to the holiday activities with family and in the city.  However, we were blessed to have as many as we did and we enjoyed our time together!
The evening in the park was our community park party where everyone in the community is invited to come out and enjoy hot dogs, chips, punch, and games and hear the Gospel message.
We had a good turnout considering it was a holiday.  God gave the words to speak to our team member whom shared with the crowd how God changed her life.  It was a moment where all distractions seemed to disappear and God's message of love was spoken and heard.!
With God it is not about how many people come, but how we treat them and what we share with them while they are with us.
Another wonderful day!
