Gulkana Village Team 2024

June 21 – 30 Assignment Completed!

2024 was our 12thyear working with our friends in Gulkana Village. The team not only built a lean-to structure over some fuel tanks, but also led Vacation Bible School for the children.

Michael & Jacintha Simione led this team from The Upper Room Missionary Church in York, PA.

Michael & Jacintha are worship leaders and have a deep passion for the Lord. Their church has been supporting LightShine Alaska for many years. They prepared the team from their church in Pennsylvania for this assignment and joined Steve & Reneè Hoey in Alaska. Steve helped them get to their location and worked with them throughout the week.

Thank you for sending this team and praying for them throughout their week! If you would like to work in Gulkana Village with LightShine next year, send Steve an email at:

And let the [gracious] favor of the Lord our God be on us; Confirm for us the work of our hands— Yes, confirm the work of our hands.
