Dates: May 19-27
We are excited to bringing you a new team opportunity. This team will be leaving Pennsylvania on Friday, May 19 and working for a week at the only radio station in the Copper River Valley that has been ministering to interior “bush” Alaska KCAM since it 1964. KCAM exists to perform effective broadcasting ministry through evangelism, instruction, and public service. It is also a lifeline for rural Alaskans. Glennallen is located about 3 hours northeast of Anchorage along the scenic Glenn Highway.
We are very excited about this team!
Scott Yahr (right), general manager at KCAM has asked for a team to come up and help finish the interior of their building. KCAM built a new basement and had their existing building placed on top of the new basement. The basement is all new construction and he would like us to frame it out, run electric and drywall. For the upstairs, he would like to make that area into 2 apartments with a shared bathroom.
We are looking for a team of 6 – 8 for this project with skills in framing, general carpentry, electrical, drywall, and plumbing.
Your team leader will be Rob Paire. Rob is a veteran LightShine Ministries team leader and has been working with us since 2001. Rob, lived in Glennallen for two years and is very acquainted with the area.
The cost of this team is $1750. If you want to be part of this team, please print out this REGISTRATION FORM and send it in to LightShine Ministries with a $40 registration fee. You can also fill out the online form to the right. This fee covers the cost of an embroidered Carhartt team shirt and locks you in as a team member. Once you are contacted by your team leader and your place is secured on this team, you can begin raising financial support by sending out support letters to your family and church friends. Simply have them send missionary support to us for your trip costs. Your team leader will help you develop your support letter and include two important dates for your supporters to note. The first financial deadline for half your support ($750) is due on March 10, 2017. This first deadline is very important to keep because it will enables us to purchase your airline tickets. Once airline tickets are purchased, there is no backing out of the team. The second deadline for your entire amount is April 21, 2017. Please note that these deadlines are strictly enforced. Not keeping them will cause us to ask you to step down from this team and consider another future team. Please take time to review our “Policies” page for more information.
The earlier you register the sooner you can start raising your financial support. We encourage you to get this out of the way early so you can enjoy the experience without any distractions. You will be so glad you did!
