A pastor from Flathead Valley will broadcast a live interview with an astronaut on the International Space Station this Sunday.
Fresh Life Church pastor Levi Lusko will speak with Shane Kimbrough, who is on a six-month tour of space.
The interview will be broadcast on 12 Fresh Life campuses, online on freshlife.church at 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., and on other Fresh Life social media sites. In the Flathead Valley, Fresh Life has campuses in Kalispell, Whitefish and Polson.
Kimbrough graduated from West Point and is a veteran of three previous space flights, the first being a space shuttle flight and the second being a six-month mission to the ISS aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft. He was also the commander of the International Space Station for Expedition 50.
Lusko will interview the astronaut as part of the Fresh Life Thirty-Five Days of Hope series, “Look Up.”
“Life is tough, crazy and full of pressure – just like space where there are a thousand things that can go wrong – and there is a lot to learn that can be transferred to life on earth. An astronaut is a perfect person to talk about life on this planet. Lusko said.
The International Space Station is a floating laboratory permanently occupied by American astronauts for 20 years.
Shane reports that he is able to watch the Fresh Life teachings every week from space.
Kimbrough’s wife, Robbie from Earth, will join the nearly thirty-minute conversation.
The interview from space comes in a week where there is increased interest in space with private companies such as Blue Origin, Virgin Galactic and SpaceX all joining NASA in space ventures.
Lusko concluded, “We are very honored to know Shane and grateful that he can watch Fresh Life from space.”
