June 7 – 16, 2019 – This team is filled!
This team will be following up after the framing team and installing a metal roof, exterior trim, siding, soffit and facia in addition to windows and doors. This will be a beautiful but functional building when it is completed.
We are very excited to finally move into our own place after borrowing others facilities for the past 23 years!
This is LightShine’s first full summer working and sending all of our teams from our new property. Be prepared for camping but hopefully our Set Up Team will be making things nice and cozy for us. You will not go hungry! You will be sleeping in a sleeping bag on cots inside cabin tents with a wood floor. But be prepared to use an outhouse and have an awesome Alaskan experience! We will also be taking you on a day trip to see some amazing scenery during your stay.
The cost of this trip is $1850 and will include airline tickets, and three meals per day. Because this is a missionary team assignment, you should expect to start each day with prayer and a devotional from the Bible.
Ron Good will be your team leader. Ron is a LightShine Ministries board member and a veteran team leader. Ron worked for over 30 years in construction and is currently an estimator with Ebersole Brothers Construction in Mount Joy, PA. Ron is passionate about ministry in Alaska and is very excited about your involvement on this team. Ron has led several teams to the Ahtna village of Kluti-Kaah to help Copper Center Community Chapel there. He has worked at the Wrangell Mount Bible Conference as well as helping finish the new parsonage for the church. But he is focused on getting this new building finished so that we can use it to send more teams back to Alaskan Native villages to assist the brothers and sisters in Christ there.
If you have any questions for Ron, email him at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at: 717.682.0514
Becoming a Team Member
If you want to be part of this team, please complete this Registration Form with a $40 registration fee. This fee covers the cost of an embroidered Carhartt team shirt and locks you in as a team member. Then you will be able to begin the process of raising the $1850 for this trip. 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 ($925) is due on March 29.
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 due May 10. 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!
“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,
And do not return there,
But water the earth,
And make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower
And bread to the eater,
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”
