WEIO 2017 – Photo Report

This team completed its week of work from July 16-25, 2017 at the World Eskimo & Indian Olympics led by Mark & Laura Raifsnider.

This was the fifth year that LightShine Ministries has the opportunity to work with the World Eskimo Indian Olympics (WEIO) in Fairbanks, AK. During these events, we work alongside Scott Smith who is the director of Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Arctic Mercy from Homer. This mission was an opportunity to serve in any way that we were asked to help. We usually are asked to help set up for the various events, sell soft goods, work the registration desk, and check the door in the evening for the paying public. We were there to mingle with and befriend the participants as well as, the attendees. This was the perfect opportunity to let them see the light of Jesus shine through us. Thank you for supporting our team with your prayer and financial support.

This year we had the opportunity to pay for the lodging in Fairbanks for Youth With With A Mission (YWAM) Arctic Mercy (another ministry working with us) because they were unable to pay for their rooms during this week of ministry. They were instrumental in inviting us to work with them 4 years ago. Their ministry is far reaching throughout Alaska. So, they needed help!
