Roy & Justine Stelzig - Tuktoyaktuk, NT
On the other side of the world’s longest international border, you will find this second largest country and the country with the most coastline in the world. It also boasts the most fresh water of any other country in the world, containing nearly 20% of the world’s sources. Since much of Canada is gripped by the Arctic climate, 90% of the country’s population is within 100 miles of its border with the United States. The Northwest Territories, which was almost renamed Bob, is one of the country’s three territories. The town name, Tuktoyaktuk (where the Stelzigs are ministering), means “resembling a caribou” and is a popular location for researching pingos, small mounds of ice covered by earth. The town is located about 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle and is on the coast of the Arctic Ocean. The Stelzigs are working among the Inuvialuit people.
