Lisa is Now Helping Inupiaq at Point Hope, Alaska

                                 Point Hope, Alaska

By Pamela Rae Schuffert presenting investigative journalism from a Biblical Christian perspective-

Lisa, my nursing friend here, is now assisting the Inupiaq at Point Hope, Alaska. She is working as a nurse at their clinic. She is training local people there.

Point Hope is a whaling village and filled with skilled artisans as well. Please pray for Lisa's strength and safety there at Point Hope and success at the clinic. Pray for the salvation and health of the Inupiaq in Point Hope as well. The Inupiaq are a beloved Native people, having survived here for thousands of years. They have gone through many hardships and at times relocation due to erosion. May God the Father bring life and health to all there, through Jesus Christ His Son.

They presently have a polar bear watch in effect!
Ice has broken up and now polar bears are being sighted. Or maybe they are sighting the villagers!The bears pose a safety threat to all the village. They are forced to come ashore due to melting ice caps.When the ice melts they cannot hunt on the ice any longer. They then may starve. Read more about this tragedy:
