Samaritan's Purse Alaska Construction Mission 2021 Informational meeting

On 12/6/20 I spoke with the volunteer coordinator with SP in South Carolina she told me that they were proceeding with caution but the mission might be able to go ahead this year. She said she would add me to their list of persons receiving trip updates. FYI This event is also posted on the main Bayside Meetup page where there are many others signed up. We are pleased to announce the first Bayside Adventure Sports/ Samaritan's Purse Construction Mission trip to Scammon Bay Alaska. This is officially an S.P. trip that is only being coordinated by BAS. Contact for the trip, Tom Breitweiser, has participated in three previous SP Alaska missions. The trip is open to men and women that have construction skills. If you are a handy person or better yet a construction professional please sign up on this Meetup page for the pre-trip informational meeting April 9th 7 PM at Bayside Granite Bay cafe. Membership in Bayside Adventure Sports is desired but not required. For more information or if not a BAS member to be placed on the offline i'm interested or i'm going call Tom and leave message at[masked]. Only cost to you is your flight from Sacramento to Kenai, Alaska and return trip. Round trip flight cost on February,[masked] was $687. plus fees. S.P. will pick you up at the airport and lodge you at their base-camp overnight in Soldotna, AK before they fly you to the Scammon Bay work site. Hand and power tools, meals and lodging are provide at no cost by S.P. . Minimum age 18 years old. I have scheduled this trip near the end of the project (mid-September). We would probably be installing outdoor access ramps and railings, possibly finishing the metal roofing, finishing interior, and perhaps exterior painting, finish plumbing, interior wood trim, carpet tiles and other final finishing trims. The first Samaritan’s Purse project in Alaska was in 2006 in Hooper Bay, AK. Children playing with matches started a fire that burned the village school, a store and dozens of apartments and houses. Samaritan’s Purse launched a building program that involved volunteers building homes for some of the families, and the government of Alaska providing modular housing for others who lost their homes. The following year in 2007, SP volunteers built a youth center in Hooper Bay that was expanded in 2010. Since the first projects in Alaska. Alaska is full of unique, natural beauty that is unparalleled anywhere else in the United States. But it is also the home of something much darker. With long, sunless winters and isolated villages, depression and alcoholism can often be prevalent. The state’s suicide rate is twice the national average, with Alaska Natives accounting for a disproportionate percentage. This makes access to a local thriving church important for the members of the community seeking hope within this darkness. After receiving an acceptance letter from SP volunteers will schedule transportation for themselves into Kenai, AK. If you travel by plane, the Samaritan’s Purse shuttle driver will be waiting at the Kenai airport at your scheduled arrival time. After you overnight at the SP base camp in Soldotna, you will be taken by Samaritan’s Purse plane to the work location. These flights take place on Monday after Sunday arrival. You will be brought back to Soldotna at the end of your trip on the following Tuesday for Wednesday morning departure. In past years I have added an extra week to my trip. First time I rented a car and spent a week exploring the Homer Peninsula, last year I flew to Fairbanks and traveled south. I have added some photos from my past mission trips. Update just posted photos of our mission site in Scammon AK.

Since the first projects in Alaska, Samaritan’s Purse President, Franklin Graham, has demonstrated a heart for Alaska and equipping local residents to proclaim the Good News throughout the state, especially in hard-to-reach villages. Samaritan’s Purse has led teams to work on various projects throughout Alaska. The projects of SP in Alaska have included many ground-up church builds, repairs to various schools and camps.
