I would like to thank everyone for their support, donations, and prayers during my mission trip to Alaska. On June 24, I arrived in Anchorage, Alaska with my daughter. We were working with Alaskan Missions for Christ organization. We were in charge of holding a week long VBS program in the small village of Ninilchik, Alaska. We were part of a 5 person team. The VBS was quite small, but those that were there learned about Jesus and his love for them. Many of the children had never heard the song "Jesus Loves Me." After talking with the people of Ninilchik, I realized how important it is to them that the children were given the opportunity for a VBS. Our VBS program would be the ONLY VBS in that area. We have already started planning for VBS next year, and I pray that next year many more children will be given the chance to learn about Jesus! This is a great opportunity to spread the word about Jesus to a very willing audience. Enjoy the pictures!
Alaska Missions for Christ is a truly life changing program that offers amazing opportunities. My experience with teaching VBS to the children of Ninilchik, Alaska was incredible. We may have had few children, however, the ones who attended truly enjoyed learning about Christ. I was impressed by the impact Jesus had on the lives of these children. They lived deep into Alaska and were surrounded by many different cultures, yet their faith stayed strong. These children were truly a blessing to work with and learn from. I hope that the VBS program only expands from here to touch the lives of many more.
