Alaska Blog

Welcome to our mission team blog!

God is so much bigger than just us. And this mission team is so much bigger than just the 19 individuals going to Alaska. Any mission endeavor includes "Goers", "Senders", "Hosts", and "Receivers".

Needless to say, there are so many people that God includes in His ministry to the world, and we are not only excited to be available to Him, but we're excited that you are a part of this, too.

We'd like to invite you to Go On Mission With Us!

You can go on mission with us. . . As we post updates of where we are on the journey God has set out before us. . . As we post pictures of our day and what God enabled us to do or learn. . . And as we post prayer requests.

Thank you for being a part of God's mission with us!

07-20-2017 - Morning of Departing

July 20, 2017
By Pastor Toby Schmidt

At 5:45pm we'll be boarding the plan and on our way to Alaska! The days of planning, preparing, and packing are finally done...and now the onsite part of this adventure begins.

The kids have had their bags packed for about a week, some adults too. Others, like me, packed last night. My kids are super excited, each in their own way. My daughter has been counting down every day since our last team meeting saying, "I can't believe in ___ days we're flying to Alaska!"

We are so thankful for the opportunity to partner with, and walk alongside, Alaska Mission for Christ. We pray and look with eyes and hearts wide-open for all that God has in store for us and everyone!

Prayers:

Pray for safe travel. Pray for no issues with our luggage. Pray that all works out and no surprises with our housing in Anchorage, and the rental vans. And pray that God surrounds our team relationships and the work he’s prepared in advance for us to do with a hedge of protection. (Ephesians 2:10; Psalm 91)
