Where: Nome, Alaska
What: Join Alaska Missions in our seventeenth year at the Iditarod finish line. Our task is two-fold: reach the local musher sub-culture as well as the local indigenous populations of the Bering Straits Region.
MUSHING COMMUNITY: Cheer on mushers crossing the finish line, permeate the volunteer force of the Iditarod, and help care for dropped dogs and race finishers. We function as the race's volunteer infrastructure for the Iditarod Trail Committee and enjoy a longstanding relationship of mutual trust and respect with the leadership of the Iditarod.
LOCAL COMMUNITY OF NOME: We serve the local indigenous populations on several fronts. Varying from concessions at a large village basketball tourney, children's home, Women's Shelter, half-way house, and homeless shelter.... We meet needs to break down walls so that we can share Christ. We hope to be able to bring hope & healing to the broken-hearted and push back the darkness with the LIGHT of the World, JESUS.
