Russ & Freda Arnold

Russ: July 26th
Freda: January 5th
ANNIVERSARY: June 10, 1951

Russ was a junior in high school when he felt the call of the Lord to serve Him in Alaska. He and Freda were married in 1951, after which he finished Bible school and also a missionary medical course in Canada. In 1956 they traveled with their three children to Alaska to the small village of Kokrines where they ministered among the Athabaskan people. The following year, they moved to the village of Ruby and they ministered for there for ten years. They then moved to the village of Nenana and they remained there for six years. Russ taught and directed the Arctic Bible Institute in Palmer and saw a number of graduates go on to serve their Lord in their respective villages. After ten years at the school, he moved into administrative duties in Alaska and then in Calgary. They Arnolds often enjoy phone calls and visits from the people from the villages as well as former students. They have no regrets serving the Lord for fifty-two years in Alaska, and their hearts are still with the people and fellow missionaries with which they served. In October of 2021 Russ went to be with the Lord.
