Homeless .. !

 October  17th of 2002 Saturday evening 7:30 p.m.

While returning from the store to the left of our shop.  FROM   7 stores away.  I was returning from purchasing a pack of gum.  As I approaced our gallery I saw a disheveled man crying, approaching our shop.  “I don’t want to die..” he was crying.. .. “I got cancer and I only have two months to live, I don’t want to die. He continued crying as I grabbed him and hugged him dearly. It was Allan Lane, the person who saved my life in 1983

I grabbed him, and with all the strength I had, I SCREAMED as loud as I could.  Lord, take this cancer out of him, and put it in me !!!  Cars stopped, people stopped; and looked over at me, MAJIK IMAJEwith Allan still in my arms, now I was crying! I loved this man so much, if it wasn’t for him, my sons would have never been born. He saved my life, now it was my turn to try and save his.  I was making a scene in public.  I didn’t care.

Allan said.. .. “your just saying that, you don’t mean it” I assured Allan I meant it with all of my heart. He said again, “I am homeless” and I laughed loud.

I said, “your not homeless” this is your new home, and I pointed to this: It was parked in front of our store, on 4th Ave in Anchorage. .

Allan looked at me in disbelief and said, “that is not yours”. I pulled the keys out of my pocket and pressed the button on the remote starter, the truck started up. I toss the keys to him, and said, it is all yours Allan. Now you have a place to stay, it is your home.

I had just paid for this in one payment $42,000 !Now for the rest of the story, Allan did not have a drivers license, so he stayed with us, in that camper for 5 months, carving, Ivory, eagles, bracelets, and we fed him and treated him like a king.. It became very apparant after 5 frustrating months with him, that something wasn’t adding up, 

We ended up moving back to point hope, we became “homeless” .. ..  ..  ..  we lost everything, due to crafty manipulation and deception.  No problem. we lost our land, our business, We got locked out of the gallery and everything was taken by the owners next door. (currently in court, lying to save their repuatation)  .

We hit point hope.(2003″ glad to be back among friends.  and then we found out the truth, about Allan, he has or had pulled this same “scheme” on two other people in the village, and duped them out of lots of money also. 

Allan came to us.. and he found out the type of people we were,  sad but true. I did this out of love for him even though he was my enemy, I knew that in advance, Yes he saved my life out there on the tundra that day.

He came to us.. and we found out the true nature of the “beast” .

I have read the Words of the Greatest Teacher,  .. .. .. ‘No greater love doth a man have, than he lay down his life for a friend.”    Those words by the King of Kings,  are very true, and it was because of the truth that those words declare, that I did what I did

And back in point hope, when he came to our house one day, I honeslty smiled and hugged him.!

that was 5 years ago, and Allan is fine, and well! I haven’t seen him since that day.

 After staying in Point Hope for just about a year, we moved down to Kotzebue, The impossible happened, slowly, at first, then the momentum picked up, the “bracelet boys” soon became the talk of the town all over Kotzebue. My sons started to make Ivory bracelets.

They are the best in Kotzebue, Point Hope & Barrow !! As of this date they have sold just over 3,000 bracelets. Every good and perfect gift is from Above, !  We intend to give this all away for the children of the different villages !  What can you do to help “? !!

We have a dream (search), a vision, a goal, a quest !
