|Yes, there really is a North Pole, Alaska!|
|This building is half under ground and roofed with sod!|
|Tempting to pull off...|
|Radio across the globe...|
|Russian gospel tracts they dropped from a plane along time ago and never did again...|
|Love the door carpet!|

Walking into the station is like stepping back in time to the 70's.... green shag carpet and wood paneling on the walls to sound proof the rooms. Our tour guide even pulled out an old record from their collection to show the kids. They'd never seen one.

|Great sign out front of the church...|
Don was a bush pilot ministering to the Alaskan villages with his wife and daughter prior to building the radio station. They lived in a remote village for several years and understood the loneliness of isolation and the need for these villages to hear the gospel and be encouraged with Christian music and "Trapline Chatter." (A time on the radio that people could share personal messages to one another.) I would love to turn their story into a visual flashcard missionary story for Alaskan children.
