LightShine Base – Sawmill Team – 2021

June 25 – July 4


This will be a very important team that will be making three sided logs and trim boards from trees cut on our property. The goal of our Tree Felling Team in May is to carefully cut and stack logs that will be milled by this team in June.

We will be using a borrowed LT40 Woodmizer Sawmill to do this work. We need to find 3 able bodied men to serve on this team – helping move logs, cutting, planing and stacking finished lumber. You will eat well and sleep soundly! The finished live edge boards will be used as decorative wall boards, shelving and trim. The logs we cut will be used for building future guest cabins and/or general construction – depending on the condition of the wood once we get into it.

Carl Ginder (pictured here with his wife Eunice) will be leading this team with Lloyd Heisey as the mill operator.

The cost for any of LightShine’s trips  is $1850 plus a $40 one time registration fee (if you have never served on a LightShine team before).  Cost of trip covers airfare, food, transportation and administration expenses.  You will receive an embroidered Carhartt team shirt included in the registration fee.  Please click below to continue the registration process.

If you want to be part of this team, please complete this Registration Form with a $40 registration fee.

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 April 14, 2021. 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 26, 2021. 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!
