Dear Friend… (March 2023)

In the small communities of Western Alaska, individual effort means a great deal. For example, one person can make the difference between someone learning a new skill or participating in a sport and not having that opportunity.

Western Alaskans are experts at saying, ‘Welcome’. Hospitality is a deep cultural value in the region and a way of life in communities with high turnover. As KNOM works to recruit and train new staff members, our prayer is we would be people worthy of the community’s welcome: people who do not shy away from difficulty but rather use our gifts and talents for the good of others.

Thank you for standing with us, shoulder to shoulder!
