Fellowship Ministries has launched the most ambitious project yet: Shepherd's Canyon Retreat, a specialized counseling ministry for wounded professional church workers and their spouses (singles are welcome too). As many as four couples gather for eight days of intensive Christian therapy, centered around God's word and the healing and restoration that comes from His grace and mercy. Retreats are currently being held in Arizona and Wisconsin. For more details, click hereor visit  Please visit to learn about the new home-base for the Shepherd's Canyon Retreat ministry.  New photos of the just completed Kristine K. Hasse Memorial Prayer Garden will be on the Standing Stones website by February 28. 


The Other Songbook is NOT out of print!  The "Musicians Edition or Large Print Edition" is very much in print even though the smaller version is out of print.  Back in the 1970's people would come up to us after concerts and after conference ... I decided that it was time to compile a songbook.



One of the finest praise & worship songbooks on the market - 253 carefully chosen songs - nearly 200,000 in print.

A Miracle of Survival

On August 13, 1993, while returning from a mission in the Russian Far East town of Lavrentiya, a charter missionary plane with seven on board lost one engine at 7,000 feet and the other, 9 minutes later, at 3,500 feet. The plane fell 3,500 feet in 3 1/2 minutes and plowed into the Bering Sea at 90 MPH. It took the seven on board this flight about one minute to get out of the aircraft; one minute later the plane sank. 

On board were: Dave and Barb Anderson from Phoenix, Arizona, keyboardist Cary Dietsche from Amery, Wisconsin, singer/songwriter Don Wharton from Nashville, Tennessee, soundman/roadie Brian Brasher from St. Louis, Missouri, passenger Pam Swedberg from Kenai, Alaska, and pilot Dave Cochran from Soldotna, Alaska. 

The group found themselves in 3'-5' swells, 2 1/2 miles west of Sledge Island; 22 1/2 miles west of Nome, Alaska; about 100 miles south of the Arctic Circle.  The water temperature was about 36F degrees. (Life expectancy is between 5 and 15 minutes in 36-degree water).


In 1993, missionaries Dave and Barb Anderson were flying back to Alaska after evangelizing in a remote region in the Russian far east, when their small aircraft suddenly lost power and crashed into the Bering Sea. Despite hitting the water at 90 miles per hour, the plane remained intact, allowing everyone on board to escape. Within 45 seconds, it sank, leaving the survivors in 36-degree cold water with 5-foot-high swells. On today’s edition of Family Talk, the couple recounts the dramatic story of surviving their plane crash. Providentially, the team was spotted and helicopters were sent. Like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, Jesus rescued them. About Today's Guests: Dave and Barb Anderson Dave and Barb Anderson are ministers of the gospel in song and the spoken word.
