July 22 – 30 – Glennallen, Alaska
Cross Road Health Ministries began as Faith Hospital in 1956 as the medical ministry of Central Alaskan Mission, later to become the SEND North branch of SEND International. It became Cross Road Medical Center in 1988, later to become Cross Road Health Ministries, Inc. in 2016 as the organization expanded.
Cross Road is now organized as an independent, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation and is recognized as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services – Bureau of Primary Health Care. Cross Road Health Ministries is overseen by a Board of Directors comprised of Christians representing Cross Road’s service areas.
This team will travel 146 miles to their assignment from our LightShine Alaska missions base. This team will be working on several homes in Glennallen that house the staff of this hospital ministry. You do not have to be a skilled carpenter to serve on this team. There are several team members who are. We need general laborers with a desire to build team unity and fellowship together!
Bob Neuenschwander will lead this team to Bingle Camp.
If you have any questions about serving with Bob, send him an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at: 717-314-0560

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 May 27, 2022. 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 June 24, 2022. 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.
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!
