LightShine Base 2023 – Bunkhouse Team


This team will be working inside the new bunkhouse doing woodwork (building shelves and doing trim work) and laying stone around the exterior 3′ base (below the log siding) of the bunkhouse. They also will be putting rustic wood siding on our well house.

This team purchased stone veneer, lumber and other materials – totaling $9,725. If you could help reimburse LightShine Alaska with this cost, it would be greatly appreciated.

The cost of this trip is $1975. That covers travel, airfare, 3 meals a day and lodging.

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 a 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 ($987.50) is due on May 27, 2023. 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 June 10, 2023. 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! You will meet many amazing people in Alaska with a side benefit of seeing God’s beautiful creation. This will be a life changing experience for you and will give you a new perspective on helping those who are really in need!

Mel Miller will be leading this team. Mel has been working with LightShine since 2008 and is our Director of Facilities. If you have any questions for Mel, email him at: or call him on his cell phone: (717) 418-6089

2023 will be an amazing year to serve our Lord Jesus Christ and point others to Him!
