American Far-West Frontier Mission Post Nome, Alaska

Each Friday the Nome Adventist School upper-grade students move out of their classroom and set up the room for church. While the church members and students would rather not make this move each week, they see it as one of the sacrifices they can make to continue to operate their mission school where more than 70 percent of the students are not Adventists.

The 67-member Nome Church is continuing to raise funds to build a new church and school building complex on a nearby piece of land. Nome is the transportation hub to more than a dozen villages, including Savoonga and Gambell on St. Lawrence Island.
