CLIVE & SHARLANE
Clive and Sharlane both grew up in Alberta, Clive in Calgary and Sharlane in Red Deer and Rosebud. They first went to Alaska with SEND International for four months in 1977 while married students at Prairie Bible Institute. After that summer, the Lord directed them back to Glennallen for long-term service, arriving in 1980. Black Diamond Gospel Chapel has partnered with them since those early years and is their home/sending church. Clive has worked in the SEND North field office from the beginning, serving as field treasurer since 1990. Sharlane worked in the lab at Cross Road Medical Center (originally Faith Hospital) helping to meet both spiritual and physical needs of area residents. The Donaldsons moved to Anchorage in 2011 when SEND North's field headquarters relocated to the city to better facilitate a new vision of outreach to people all across the North. As part of the Logistics and Support team, Clive continues to find it meaningful to serve fellow-missionaries so they can concentrate on the ministry the Lord has called them to.
