Last summer Kathryn came out to Port Alsworth to help document Tanalian Bible Camp’s ministry. She was finishing up a photography degree at the Art Institute of Colorado. Not only did she work on photos and video for camp, but she invested in the lives of the staff members while she was here. Here’s some of her work for TBC
The past two weeks she came back to help do the same for the Tanalian Leadership Center. It has been so refreshing and encouraging having her here. God used her creative perspective on life and wonderful suggestions for books to renew my heart and mind in several ways. Everyday we’ve had conversations that direct my heart back to the Truth of who God is in my life. One thing I will never forget her saying many times is, “Thank you God for always providing more than enough.” It’s so true. He really does. Over the past few weeks I have been truly reminded the He provides for what I need even when I don’t know what that is. He also is faithful and gives me many things that I don’t need, but want.
I plan to be pretty busy with camp this summer as well as working part time at the new General Store in Port Alsworth. Sometimes I get discouraged and just choose not to even dream up the things I’d like to do. This summer I have lots of things that I want to do. I have laid all those things at the feet of Jesus. I don’t know what this summer holds, but I know that God wants me to ask for the things I want. I just can’t put my hope in those things. He’ll provide everything that I need, but I am excited to ask for the frivolous things I want. It’s up to Him what actually happens. This summer will be wonderful no matter what it holds because all the good and perfect things that it will hold are gifts from Jesus.
