On June 18, 2019 Emmanuel WMF held their annual Salad Guest Night Supper.  Salads were brought by the members and were enjoyed by everyone starting at 6 pm.  Guests and members visited with each other until 7 when we moved upstairs for the program.

Dorothy Hjermstad welcomed everyone and thanked the members for bringing the delicious salads.  We opened with the singing of "I'd Rather Have Jesus", page #535.  Devotions were given by Dorothy from a book by Ruth Bell Graham, "Legacy of a Pack Rat".  She shared about one particular story from the book regarding that God has no answering service.  We are glad that God hears us.  He is willing to listen to us.  Next on the program, Shayla and Chelsey Anfinson shared a duet.  Patty Reed gave her testimony and a recent testimony when her son, who has Downs Syndrome, was lost for 70 mins.  Prayers were answered when he was found safe and sound.  Patty also shared a song, "He Looked Beyond My Fault".  Shayla and Chelsey Anfinson shared the song, "All You Need From Me is to be Still".  God wants us to trust in Him and be still.  In closing, everyone sang, "Nearer my God to Me". #602.  And recited the Lord's Prayer. 

Kitchen workers that night were Ann Romo, Twila Simonson, Ruthann Nelson, Joan Iverson.

Our next meeting will be on July 9 at 10 am.  Senior members will be honored at a brunch.  Servers are Jan Strand, Lori Lyon, Marit Lang, and Molly Barsness.  Devotions will be given by Janice Nelson.  There will be a business meeting.  Aspelund will be hosting the Fall Central Tri-State District meeting in October.  After the brunch and meeting, there will be a joint Bible study.

The Net, Naknek, Alaska


We are getting down to the wire and I still could use a couple more volunteers that would like to serve at our coffee house ministry called The Net, in Naknek, Alaska. Our most urgent need is to find two ladies that could serve at a minimum, from June 24th through June 29th. We could also use one or two more ladies from July 15th through July 27th. We are specifically asking for ladies because of the sleeping accommodations that are available during those dates, but could also accept a couple of men from mid-July to the end of the month. Dates are flexible, so if you are interested, please contact Bobbie Overgaard, Manager (The Net) at: sbchilebean@gmail.com or by calling 805-705-9556. The link to the online application can be found at:



You may not be able to volunteer at The Net, but you can support this ministry another way. We depend upon supporters like you to stock our shelves, with Bibles and Christian reading material, but also with baking supplies. The Alaska Gift Registry is now up to date with all of our needs for the summer. If you can help us meet those needs, we sure would appreciate it!

The Gift Registry is at: https://www.myregistry.com/visitors/?registryid=337412 .

As you may know, we bake hundreds of cookies and cupcakes and we make gallons of coffee and hot chocolate for our visitors. They may come in because of the sweet smell of fresh baked goods, but many times they leave with so much more. When our visitors arrive, we are often able to share the Gospel with them and sometimes they walk out the door with their very first Bible. By placing your order now, we can ensure that our supplies arrive in a timely manner. You can ship supplies outside of the Registry, but by using the Registry we are able to track what has been purchased and at the same time, demonstrate to others what is still needed. Won’t you please help fill our shelves at The Net?
