Pedro Bay Village 2024

August 16 – 25  Team is filled!

Pedro Bay is a fly in village located off of Lake Iliamna, west of the Kenai Peninsula. Pedro Bay is both physically and spiritually situated as a key village in the region. It is center between the Alaska Range and the Aleutian Range and was one of the first area villages to embrace the Gospel. Keith Jensen, Elder, Council President and Brother in Christ has requested a team and says that there is a great need to take care of many maintenance issues on the church/parsonage building. We will be looking for multiple talents and skills for this team. Projects will include drywall, painting, re-hanging exterior doors, roof and gable repair and many other miscellaneous things. The exact cost for this team will be determined soon, once logistics are solidified. We are looking for up to 7 men and women, including a cook, who possess a heart to minister with the skills God has enabled you with.

The cost of this trip is $2,125 because of additional in state airline fees. 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 ($1,062.50) is due on July 5, 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 July 19, 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!

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.
