Doug and LoWana Blair
Doug and LoWana Blair have chosen to respond to the Savior's call to be missionaries to Bethel, Alaska. They presently attend the Northside Church and have worked in Anchorage for many years. Doug is an estimator for a large heating company, and LoWana is an active massage therapist. Doug will be retiring from his company in August, and directly after that they will be leaving on their mission to Bethel.
In Bethel, Doug will be the bible worker, under the direction of the district pastor, Edson Joseph. The Blairs are experienced workers. They have done ShareHIM series in Texas as well as in Anchorage, Alaska, worked with Gospel Mission, and assisted in prison ministry. They are now planning to open a homeless shelter in Bethel.
Needless to say, the church members in Bethel are also excited about this new arctic mission adventure. Pray for the church and the Blairs as they make this transition.
