Re: Think Missions
Imagine yourself part of a small village located on the Arctic tundra with a few dozen wooden homes, a small store and governed by elders. Extreme weather. No hospitals. No police. No streets. The only access is by a small, single-engine plane. Now imagine being taught that so much of your culture is “wrong” — the food you eat, the clothes you wear, the way your village hunts and fishes, the stories the elders tell, the songs they sing, and the very words spoken are inferior.
Few of us truly understand the difficulty of life in Alaska villages. Arctic Mission Adventure (AMA) was born from a desire to share the love of Christ in practical ways throughout bush Alaska. AMA volunteers live in villages with the goal of integrating into village life and building relationships through ministries that meet the needs of both old and young. They feed the hungry, clothe the needy, provide day camps and Vacation Bible Schools, and pray for those in need.
The North Pacific Union offering on June 29, 2019, is designated for AMA outreach. AMA is solely donor-supported, and this offering goes to keeping lights and heat on in the village church and parsonage, building maintenance, and keeping food banks open. Please prayerfully support the mission work in Alaska by giving of your offerings on June 29.
