Scott, I just want to say thank you for allowing me to serve with Graceworks this summer. I pray that lives were forever changed and hope they will continue their spiritual walk with Christ. I know that my life has changed too! It is amazing to see how God uses ordinary people like ourselves to further His kingdom. In Matthew, Jesus commands us to spread the gospel throughout the nations, and I believe Graceworks is doing this, one by one! Every experience I have had while here, has strengthened me and humbled me and I know I am going home a better person than I was . Thank you again! Love ya!

DETAILS: We don't pay a salary. Staff are responsible to get themselves to Alaska. Once you get here, however, we feed you, house you, and give you something to drive when needed. There is no cost to you. You are not an employee of GraceWorks/Global Partnership Ministries and we do not provide insurance. Hours are long and time off is short. However, it's a lot of fun and our staff keep coming back. You will be doing something significant! Generally we want our staff to be 20 or over, but we do make some exceptions. One perk is that we will give you a home base to stay up to four more days, and a free vehicle if you want to stay after you serve. However session one staff must checkout by June 28 and session two
staff must checkout by August 2.

I got to spend four weeks in the beautiful state of Alaska, and while some weekends were devoted to exploring what the mountains and rivers had to offer, most of my time was better pictured by the last photo: Working to provide meals in the kitchen for those who would serve every week. I never thought I’d praise almighty God for sending me to work 80 hours a week trying to feed 80 people a day. But He in his goodness gave me experience after experience, and guided me well every single day. Above all, if someone twisted my arm and asked my favorite part of my whole trip, I would tell them of all the wonderful fellowship I got to participate in with my fellow staff. Thanks for letting me sit in your wisdom and kindness, you’ve truly changed me for the better. A big ole thank you to GraceWorks for teaching me, growing my abilities and stretching my missional spiritual growth! Amanda
