Cold Thoughts

Timmy Turner is an esteemed surf
filmaker that has gone on after almost dying
of a virus sustained in Indonesia. His
doctors told him to stay near cold climates
so his next film is a cold water surfing
film. This is the link to a trailer for his film.
Contains some good footage of Canada.
Warning! Contains a swear word!
The above are a couple of pics of Canada.

Yesterday I had the privilege of speaking to the junior high and high school groups at Torrance First Baptist. It was even more fun because Allison and I taught Sunday school there for 4 years and many of our our old 1st through 3rd graders are now in high school, growing up. We are the adopted missionaries of that group and are excited to continue to share with them what is going on in Alaska.
Allison and I continue to be members at TFB and treasure the times we get to spend with old friends. Here are some pics of the church service and junior high/high school group, and another one of Quinn.

It's a boy!


Baby Quinn was born 7 pounds even and 19 inches long. Mother had a great birth and is recuperating nicely. Thanks for all your prayers, it is amazing to think of the journey we have taken since those tense moments and months after she went into labor in the Juneau airport. The images are shot out of the hospital room, couldn't get any that did the smoke and ash in the air justice.

Satellite view of the carnage

Here is a satellite view of what literally has never been seen before on this scale in Southern California. It is just shocking, the power and the devastation. Please keep these people in your prayers.

Southern California/Malibu fires

Our prayers go out to the residents of Malibu and elsewhere in SoCal that are losing their homes in these horrific wildfires.

Baby News/CS Conference

We had our prenatal appointment today and the doctor said that she would induce a week early if Allison is still pregnant by then. So we are looking at the most, another week and a half before the baby is born! It is exciting to be this close, it seems like we have been waiting a very long time for this one.
Please pray for the Christian Surfers conference to be held the 17th-2oth of October in Cocoa Beach, Florida. This is a very important conference and a lot of changes have been made in the last year, please keep everyone in prayer.

No Baby yet!

We spent last night in the hospital, thought she was going to have the baby and it all stopped at about 3:30 this morning. Maybe next time!

Windy Day!

A very blustery day today in the South Bay. Topaz jetty, getting worked. Nice when it is like this, the air clears enough you can see the mountains. You can also see King Harbor in the background, the waves crashing against the breakwall.

Sunny winter day of surfing

Nothing new to report, Allison goes off the anti-labor drugs on Saturday. Here is another shot from Scott "from Alaska" Dickerson of surfing from the last winter. I don't have any fall shots and since the temp has dipped below freezing already (at night in Alaska) I felt this was justified. Note the ice, you don't want that hitting you in the water!
