Salem Volunteers Take on Building Tasks and Building Relationships at Alaska Christian College
A group of ten volunteers from Salem traveled to Alaska Christian College in Soldotna, Alaska in early June to take part in their summer projects program.
The group worked with ACC staff to do repair and maintenance projects around the campus. Some of the projects were creating quilted items, planting flower beds, interior and exterior painting, adding server room ventilation, repair of a log splitter and rear brakes on a van!
The Salem volunteers were introduced to and worked alongside five wonderful students who were chosen as “Student Ambassadors” for the summer.
The group says they were blessed to develop relationships with these students throughout the week as they learned of their native culture and the hardships and blessings they have encountered. Volunteers also fit in time for some sightseeing, a boat cruise and a game night with the students.
The group would like to thank the Salem Mission Team and the congregation for their support in making this opportunity possible.
