Joy Media Ministries has taken on the monumental task of building housing for their missionaries to live in. They have received donations to cover most of the materials, but labor is being done by volunteers. Do you have construction abilities? Here are the projects for us to work on.
The first project is a 2,400-square-foot renovation that is partially completed. The upstairs unit is three bedrooms, two bathrooms, with a large kitchen/living space. Downstairs will be two apartments and a common kitchen/living area. There is still plenty of finish work to do, including drywall, mudding, painting, hanging doors, laying flooring, electrical work, etc.
The second is a new build for missionary, Michelle Eastty. She has been with KCAM for almost 20 years, and has lived in six different houses here. A 24' x 26' cabin was built by a construction company, but the inside will be finished with volunteer teams. Due to new staff arrivals, it needs to be livable by this winter.
Are you skilled in various construction areas, a team player, and passionate about advancing missions? Would you consider taking part with the team to do general construction work? It's a great opportunity to see how the LORD is working in and through the ministry of KCAM.
Housing is at a premium in their small town of
Glennallen. Combine limited options for renting with the fact that their
missionaries need to be close to the station to respond to issues 24/7, and the
high cost of available housing, and accommodations are a huge part of their
monthly budgets. Building on KCAM land will take a weight off so they can focus
on reaching out to the Copper River Valley with the Gospel.
We look forward to hearing from you!

Bring your shoeboxes to church on November 18 and we'll deliver them to the Samaritan's Purse hangar.
What is Operation Christmas Child?
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization.
Their mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
They ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.
God is mightily at work in the world, and we are excited as a church body to partner financially and in prayer with the following organizations and individuals.

With a double degree in Bible and ESL (English as a second language) from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, Jo has been working with a missions organization in Alaska for the past four years, with the goal of loving and serving the evangelical church in Russia, and partnering with them as they love and support many of Russia's orphans.
