May 31 – June 9
We are almost finished with our Base Director house and we have to finish it up so it can be occupied! Look how far it has come since May of 2023!
Three “House Teams” served in 2023 and you can visit their photo reports on the “2023 Teams” page or click on their photo below …
This 2024 “House Team 1” will be continuing on the work with the goal of finishing the house! They will be doing various jobs at the LightShine Alaska Missions Base. There is a need for a heavy equipment operator or two to move dirt and general laborers to rake and smooth the ground and plant grass for the new yard around the house. Also inside the house there is a need for painters, trim carpenters and general laborers. Take time to watch this video testimony from one of last year’s volunteers, Phil Thompson …
Here are some photos from last year’s teams …
Tom Denlinger and Tom Law will be leading this trip.
The cost of this trip is $1975. Our trip cost covers everything you need once you leave your home until you return. The total is determined by analyzing the cost of team assignments from previous years (things like your airline ticket, ground transportation, three meals a day, and many administrative fees that LightShine incurs).
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 LightShine Alaska 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 April 19, 2024. 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 May 3, 2024. 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! A side benefit on this trip is seeing God’s beautiful creation including mountains, moose and maybe even the northern lights. This will be a life changing experience for you and will give you a new perspective on helping those who are really in need!
