We Have Arrived!!

by Almando Jean Louis | July 2, 2022 6:07 PM

After many hours of travel, plus some delays and a night in Fairbanks, we made it to the First Baptist Church of North Pole where we are staying for the week. We are tired, but ready to start serving the people here. 

Reindeer Pizza!

After a great sermon we had pizza for lunch with a classic Alaskan topping, reindeer! Tomorrow we start our ministry, but today we rest and have fellowship with one another.

We have all found a job to do this morning. We split into two groups and went to two different locations where the ministry stores its donations.

A group of us got up at 6:00 am to serve at the soup kitchen. The primary jobs are helping with prep, talking with the guests and making sure they feel welcome, and then clean-up after breakfast is over.

The Organizers

Our team put their heads together to help the church sort boxes and figure out the best way to reach some important tools and supplies for their ministry. Praise God for the great organizers we have on the team!

Colossians 3:23 "With all that you do, work with all of your heart; as unto the Lord and not for men."

Rescue Mission

by Almando Jean Louis | July 5, 2022 9:18 PM

We started working at the Rescue Mission today. The Rescue Mission serves individuals and families that are experiencing homelessness by offering emergency services as well as hope through the gospel. Volunteers often help with food prep, sorting donations, and various projects around the property. The mission also has daily Bible studies and chapels that anyone can attend.

We started doing some landscaping at Rescue Mission. We pulled roots, put in a barrier, and leveled dirt.


Sweet Treats

After our hard work outside in the heat, we were blessed with a surprise of ice cream, popsicles, and fruit.

After dinner, we took some time to fellowship and sing worship together. We were taking requests and taking turns singing. It was a great way to end our day.

Getting Ready for Winter...Already?!

by Almando Jean Louis | July 6, 2022 4:03 PM

We knocked out two big rooms full of donations. Sister Barbie has not been around because of her sickness, but she is thankful for the work we have done. She told us that people will soon start coming to get supplies to prepare for the winter. We are glad we can be a part of this ministry.

We continued our work on the landscaping at Rescue Mission. We started by cutting and laying the barrier for the rocks to be spread on.

Work, Work, Work, Work, Work!

That's a Lot of Rocks!

by Lindsey Shaffer | July 7, 2022 1:07 AM

We unloaded and spread two trailers of rocks. We also unloaded another two trailers to be spread later.

Finish Strong

by Matthew Fedorenko | July 8, 2022 6:16 PM

Our team went back to the Rescue Mission and finished the work that was given to us. We had people who worked at the Rescue Mission personally thank us for what we did and assured us that this will benefit the community.
