A group of Mat-Su Christians will gather in Wasilla on April 9 to pray for local political figures and contemporary issues as well as for the spiritual needs of Alaska’s Native communities.

Alaska State Representative Kevin McCabe (R-Big Lake) will speak about new developments with the Point MacKenzie port project, which many view as key to Alaska’s supply chain security, especially in times of natural disaster.

Mat-Su Borough Mayor Edna DeVries will also be on hand.

Tlingit Alaska Native Bill Pagaran will talk about his ministry to Alaska Natives across the state. He is president of Carry the Cure, a non-profit, faith-based organization that was founded in 1996 in response to Western Alaska’s outcry against the epidemic of suicide among Native teens. Pagaran and his team travel throughout Alaska to provide a message of hope through school rallies, mentorship and education.

The prayer breakfast will focus prayer on Alaska’s First Nations peoples, the development of Point MacKenzie and the ongoing work of Mayor DeVries.

The event takes place Saturday, April 9, at Evangelos Restaurant (2530 E Parks Hwy, Wasilla), beginning at 9 a.m. Tickets are $25 at the door. To register online, click here.
