Pastor Watson and Ms. Gwen started Manna Baptist Church in 1980. This video is a little taste of what happend early in our history. They sacrificed greatly for this ministry. By faith they came to Alaska to establish a Fundamental Baptist Church for the Lord. They first started in Anchorage and then moved an hour away to Palmer because there was a church building available to meet in. In the years to follow they would start a Christian School. Pastor diligently taught the children about God but also about basketball. Ms. Gwen was a wonderful example of a Christian woman who shared her sewing and music talents with all who wanted to learn. They both worked so faithfully for 28 years and with everyones help, built all the buildings on this property. We are now enjoying this ministry because of what they accomplished through God’s strength. Thank you Lord for working through them.
