Alaska Mission Trip
We are so excited to tell you about an opportunity God has laid before us to take our ministry on the road, to GO, to encourage and build up women in new regions. Recently, we have felt the call to reach out to women's groups in remote areas, smaller churches and ministries that operate on tiny budgets, to come along side them in their efforts to minister to the women in their areas. And God has been so faithful to open some amazing doors to us.
We have been asked to go to Sutton, Alaska in September for their Calvary Chapel's Women's Retreat. There will be 5 to 6 small churches in attendance totaling around 50 ladies. Many of these women will be traveling long distances to come, possibly as far away as the Arctic Circle. The theme of the weekend is 'HOPE - An Anchor for our Soul'. Sharon Sands will be teaching throughout the weekend, as well as leading a break-out session on Saturday designed specifically for Pastors' Wives. Our team, Beth Miles and Angela Parks, will be leading break-out sessions for the ladies to choose from, as well.
The host churches will be covering Sharon's travel costs. But, considering the small operating budgets of these remote churches, we wanted to really bless them and minister to them as much as possible by covering the rest of our team's expenses ourselves.
Thanks to some very generous donors, we already have a good portion of our expenses covered. Our goal is to raise $1500, to take care of all remaining travel, lodging and food expenses for the weekend. This is where we humbly ask you to partner with us. You will receive a receipt for your tax deductible donation of any amount.
Please consider donating to our Alaska Mission Trip fund. No amount is too small to make a lasting difference in the lives of our beautiful Alaskan sisters.
Thank you for supporting our mission to minister to women who are out on the front lines ministering to others!
