It’s time to update our web-site. We haven’t been very good about it, that’s for sure. We have a new Mission Director, Scott Johnson, and I have a picture of him and his wife Beth in a Jeepney in Manila here.
Our older newsletters are kept on the web, click here to see an index of the past editions.
We provide Bibles and other materials to the men and women who stop by and visit. The seafarers love to 'call home'. Recently, we have realized that cell phones are cheaper and more practical than land lines, and are moving to that technology. We also have a video library, music room, e-mail stations, barbeque, outdoor basketball court, and picnic deck. In 2008, we had about 5975 visitors in Seward and Whittier.

We were given a beautiful pencil drawing, 'Death of Christ', by Mr Maung, who came to Seward as a crewman on a coal ship. We have been given another drawing which is now hanging in our Whittier Mission: ‘I am the Way’, by Arlan. Also, read an interesting testimony of Lucky, steward of the Cougar Ace, a ship which rolled in the North Pacific.
We publish a snail-mail newsletter a few times a year. If you'd like to subscribe to it, please send us your mailing address by E-mail!
