Help with Projects in Alaska.
Location: Bethel, AK
Date: May 15 – August 31, 2017 available for 7-10 day trips.
Cost: Airfare and food costs ($12/day) plus a donation towards lodging expenses.
Here are some needs for short term mission work in Alaska:
In Bethel – Interior painting – dorm and administration building
Re-glue/re-lay carpet in conference room
Install rain gutters and downspouts for Bookstore
Team size: up to 12 people but 6-8 is ideal, housing would be at the dorm with all bedding and towels provided. Food allowance to plan on would be between $10 and $12 per person per day and would suggest bringing as much as possible as it
will save teams a lot. Older teens and up would be best as the painting while easy is complicated by the buildings being furnished so a higher level of care while painting would be required.
In Bethel and outlying villages they always have a need for vacation bible school teams. Especially in the villages team size should not exceed 6 if at all possible as housing more is difficult. Suggested age here could be a bit younger especially if youth is coming with a parent. Additional costs here would be travel to the village which could be between $200 and $350 per person depending on the village. More details can be given if you have anyone is interested.
