What a wonderful time to be alive! There are so many opportunities to serve our LORD Jesus Christ in Alaska. Whether you are a skilled craftsperson or gifted with working with people, God has a place for you in building up His people and giving Him glory. We work with local churches, Bible camps and other ministries in Alaska to strengthen the Body of Christ there. Take time to watch this new video below.

EXCITING TIMES! EXCITING NEWS!

 

Hello Everyone!

Our ministry is growing. Take time to watch the video above.

After 24 years of persistent faithfulness to our calling, the LORD is blessing us in exponential ways and He is giving us vision for the future that is much broader than we ever would have imagined at the start. "Empowering Generation to Generation" is the theme of our Capital Campaign and reflects the commitment we have to build this ministry to serve the world for generations to come!

I would encourage you to read through our website and pray for this ministry. We are committed to making disciples of Jesus Christ and developing leaders to build His Kingdom not only in Alaska through our ministry serving Bible camps, local churches and other ministries all across the state,  but also in training others to pursue and embrace their own callings throughout the world. As I tell others all the time, each of us are called by God to do specific works in this lifetime (Ephesians 2:10). There are many ministries all over the world where you can invest your time and talents for His glory. That is what God has called all of us to do - to build His Kingdom and not our own. LightShine Alaska's ministry personality is unique and for those who connect with cultures in the northern regions of our nation. If that interests you, please consider working with us. LightShine Alaska is just a vehicle for you to work out your own calling and partner with others of similar calling. Contact us today if you have any questions at: lightshinealaska@comcast.net.

P.S. Earlier this year, we were able to build our first building on our missionary base that will be used to store our vehicles and tools. Thank you for all of your have gave towards this need. Thank you for all of you who served on our teams that built this building. What has been accomplished this year is a testament of what God's people can do when they work together for a common goal. Take time to watch this report.

The following video is last year's video report after we cleared land for this year's project. AS you watch this, take time to thank the LORD for His faithfulness bringing us so far! Praise His HOLY Name!

Some have asked, "What do we actually DO in Alaska?" To start, take time to watch the following video.

We are a Kingdom ministry. The Kingdom of Jesus Christ is made up of people - people from all cultures and different ways of life. We desire to connect people and encourage them - building covenant relationships that last a lifetime!

What can destroy relationships like this? The Bible says that we are not at odds with people but against spiritual forces that are unseen to the natural eye (Ephesians 6:12).

We believe the Bible when it teaches us that we are in a spiritual battle in order to subdue kingdoms that are set against our LORD (Hebrews 11:33).  We are not only commanded to make disciples of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19-20), but all of us at LightShine Ministries have been called to see His Kingdom established in Alaska!

Join with us in simply being Light in darkness!  Jesus said that we are the Light of the world. All demonic principalities and powers (Ephesians 6:12) that rule over this great state will be broken down and displaced by the Kingdom of Jesus Christ (1 John 3:8) just by the work of God's people. Jesus told us we would do even greater works than He did (John 14:12-13).  Please pray for brothers and sisters in Christ who do this work in Alaska and for us as we help equip them with tools for ministry.  Jesus will be Lord over all of Alaska!  This is what we are praying and working for!

For 24 years (since 1995) we have been offering assistance to brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ by helping them build His Kingdom in the hearts of the people of Alaska.

We offer short term missionary opportunities for people who love people, love the outdoors and desire to serve our God in places where churches need help in establishing Bible camps.

Please take time to explore our website and ask the Lord if He would have you be a part of our next missionary team to Alaska!

"For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."  Ephesians 2:10

God has created you to do work for Him.  We view our ministry as a "Pipeline of People" from the lower 48 states to Alaska.  People who love God and His people.

Matthew 25:40 (NKJV)

“And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’"

LightShine Ministries

I have much respect for my friends Mike & Adeline Juneby Potts. I met them in 1996 on my second missionary trip to Alaska. Mike was the pastor of Copper Center Community Chapel then. We started talking vision of how to enhance the ministry to the youth of the village. Several teams later over 4 years and with the prayer and financial support of many of you, Strelna Lake Wilderness Bible Camp was established.

When God gives you a vision, be faithful to do it!

In 2000, Mike shared with me his NEXT vision of going to Mongolia and riding 500 miles on horseback to preach the Gospel and start a church there. Mike & Adeline brought horse harness with them (from Lancaster County) and taught the Mongolian people to build cabins with horses dragging logs. A church was established in Battsirit. This little film shows the fruit of their years of personal sacrifice and obedience to the LORD.

When God gives you a vision, be faithful to do it!

Well done, Mike & Adeline!
