This Summer we will join the Children's Camp Crew (ages 9-12) to create a safe, exciting place for these kids to encounter Jesus Christ, serving in every way from counselors to set-up / tear-down crew.

Hi, everyone!

In June 2016, I will be traveling to Camp Agaiutim Nune, Alaska with the Chi Alpha family from SFASU. At Camp AN, we will be apart of the camp staff and will be getting to pour into the lives of children from the surrounding villages.

"Camp Agaiutim Nune is located on the Akularak River, a slough 17 miles up the Yukon River from the village of Emmonak. It is set in a beautiful natural setting in a completely undeveloped area of the Yukon Delta region." (campanalaska.org) Although this camp is in one of the most beautiful places on Earth, it is surrounded by darkness.

This area of Alaska has one of the highest suicide rates in the country. There are boys and girls who come to this camp orphaned by parents committing suicide. Many of the children, from ages 3 and up, have experienced some degree of physical, sexual, and/or emotional abuse. It is so heartbreaking to hear the stories of the things that these children go through at such a young age.

In preparation for this journey to Alaska, I ask that you would be in prayer with me about a few things:

  • Prayer for these children. After seeing so much darkness, pray that their minds and hearts would be open to the love of Christ and their lives would be forever changed.
  • Prayer for our Chi Alpha team. That we would continue to be attentive and obedient to the Holy Spirit. That, over the next few months, He would continue to grow us personally and as a whole to be able to carry out the work that He has for us at Camp AN.
  • And lastly, prayers for safe travels for everyone involved. Since Camp AN is 17 miles up the Yukon River, all the campers are brought in by boat from the surrounding villages. And since we'll be coming all the way from The Lone Star State, it's going to take a bit more to get us out there. Actually getting to the camp will take us two days by taking two planes, a boat, and a four wheeler.

While I believe that prayer is a powerful thing, and definitely a HUGE necessity for a trip such as this, there is another part to the equation. The cost of this is trip comes out to be around $2,500 per person, which includes travel, lodging, and food for the 10 days we are there. I ask that you would be in prayer about giving to help us reach Alaska! If you are feeling led, every contribution to my team and me is greatly appreciated!

After being a camper and a staff member of summer camps in the past, I know what a huge impact just one week can make on the rest of a young person’s life. We serve a big God and I strongly believe that He has big things in store for these kids and our team at Camp Agaiutim Nune!

Love God, Love Others, Live Lumberjack Proud!

In the Yukon Delta of western Alaska, Camp Agaiutim Nune means "the place of God." For the hundreds of children and teens in nearby villages whose everyday experience includes suicide, drug and alcohol addiction, and abuse (in every sense), there week at Camp AN is just that.

This Summer we will join the Children's Camp Crew (ages 9-12) to create a safe, exciting place for these kids to encounter Jesus Christ, serving in every way from counselors to set-up / tear-down crew.
