Alaska Holds Interior Camp Meeting

Alaska's Interior Camp Meeting was a blessing to many. "I am going to be chewing on those sermons for a while,” said one attendee.

Because of the challenge of distances, the Alaska Conference conducts six regional camp meetings every year, starting in February in the arctic and ending in August on Vank Island in southeast Alaska.

Interior Camp Meeting is conducted for the members in the central interior of Alaska, which includes Fairbanks, North Pole, Delta Junction, Tok and other area companies. Enthusiastic mosquitoes did not keep the enthusiastic campers away. Though record rain washed out the road, record numbers were blessed by excellent presentations and children’s programming.

Aaron Payne, Palmer Church pastor, presented a series on the resurrection of Christ and His appearances and message to his disciples.

Pastor Steve Evenson and his wife, Judy, conducted a wonderful music extravanganza, and Chad Angason, missionary in Togiak, Alaska, assisted and conducted the children’s program.
