ShareHIM Motivates 'Ordinary Guy'

Doug Blair, a member of the Anchorage Northside Church and a sheet metal worker, calls himself "just an ordinary guy." Blair caught the ShareHIM vision during a rally in Anchorage, Alaska, and has been a main speaker at each Northside campaign since. He also presented the ShareHIM program at a local rescue mission.

In March 2008, Blair took a group from Northside to Manokotak, Alaska, a village with a population of nearly 400. No one attended the first few nights, but the team was not discouraged. Instead, they visited townspeople and gave them personal invitations. By the end, 10 people were attending. Blair saw God's hand at work and learned about "preparing the ground."

In November 2008, he organized another team to go to Togiak, Alaska, a town with a population of nearly 825. He and his team went to each home ahead of time inviting residents. Average attendance was nearly 15 each night with seven committing to baptismal studies and three accepting on profession of faith. Upon retirement, Blair and his wife, Lowana, plan to move to Bethel, Alaska, to continue to ShareHIM.
