Dear Friends of MARC,
Overcoming barriers is a major part of missionary aviation. Often, we think of physical obstacles such as mountains, rivers, jungles and deserts. Sometimes the impediments to success are cultural attitudes or excessive government bureaucracy. Regardless of the hurdles, we embrace the challenge set before us in order for the Gospel of Jesus Christ to increase.
The impact of COVID-19 has caused concern and fear in many Alaskan villages. Some locations are still reluctant to have “outsiders” come and visit their community. This has significantly reduced our ministry flying to many places we have previously served. Only some limited cargo flights are taking place...

WINTER UPDATE - 2019
It has been a fun and busy summer! We hope everyone is enjoying the summer weather. We are exploring new parks and places to hike. Washington doesn't seem to run out of places to explore! We wanted to reach out and ask for prayers for tomorrow July 19th. There is gong to be an elders meeting being held at the church we are attending. During this meeting our family and the MARC ministry will be discussed. prayers that Lord willing, we will be able to present during the service and complete the last 7% of our support. We know our God is a BIG God, and if it's His will, let us reach our goal ASAP so we can head home! We have appointments lined up with members of the church that we have come to know pretty well. The church is Northwest Baptist Church in Bellingham, WA. Thank you for taking the time and efforts in supporting our family and the ministry of MARC!
With much love,
Collier & Allyson Hard

Just popping in to say hello and to you let know how things are going! My recovery is going so well! I had my stiches out today. The doctor said everything is going well. I can be out of my brace full time now. I will be off crutches in one week. The pain has been minimal and the recovery time has been great! It has been going by a lot faster than I thought it would. Prayers that the recovery process continues smoothly. That I will be a head of schedule in regards to healing and PT.
Update in the MARC work, we will be meeting with a church in Onalaska on 4/22/2018. Prayers that the congregation is willing to hear about MARC and the work the Lord is doing in AK. Prayers that we meet our goal asap! The summer season hasn't started yet at MARC however, they have a lot currently going on and once the summer is underway, it will only increase the business. The sooner our family can move out there, the quicker we will be able to start working and provide rest to some of the staff.
Many more things to come in the very near future. This entire process seemed like a mere thought one year ago. Well now its here and were so ready to go! Thank you for the many prayers, cards and checks-in. I have felt nothing but love and hope through all of this. Thank you!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Attached is our December Newsletter. We are all doing well. We are really hoping for a big snow fall. I know most Minnesotans don't. Praise the Lord he called us to Alaska and some place warm! 😊
Many well wishes to you and your family! We pray that the ending of this year as well as the beginning of the next will be happy, full of joy and time to seek the Lord and His kingdom first!
