Specific evangelism tracts and Bible in other languages are listed on this registry. Other additions will help furnish the living quarters in the new garage. Your support is huge source of encouragement to our team and the people they are serving! Alaska Gift Registry
Quilt Ministry to Alaska - We so appreciate all the quilts being sent our way here in Alaska. They are such a great way for us to give a practical expression of God’s love here in this cold climate. They are so appreciated by people and they open doors for us to share the Gospel. We pass them out to people here in Naknek, as well as take them to many area villages where we fly. We have taken several boxes to a closed village (due to strong Russian Orthodox influence) and we were welcomed there solely because of quilts. We also have sent quilts to villages where there has been severe flooding and people had lost nearly everything –the quilts were received with tears. Additionally, we shared dozens of quilts last summer with international visitors to Naknek during fishing season.
The information above is from the Home Missions site for quilting and for more information and answers to some frequently asked questions you can go to: Quilt Ministry

Missionary Support The support will be distributed to the AFLC missionaries as the World Missions Board deems necessary. Please keep aware of the missionaries that are on the field, and those who are no longer serving on the mission field, so that funding sent to World Missions can be used appropriately. Keep our missionaries and families in prayer. Visit the World Missions website at https://www.aflcworldmissions.org/ to learn more and see our missionaries and their work. A list of all AFLC missionaries, those serving AFLC fields, and those on loan to other missionary organizations, with addresses and birthdays, as well as suggested mailing procedures and ideas can be found in the WMF Resource Manual.
We also have under this project:
The Mission Scholarship program. This scholarship program is available to seminarians who are approved as missionary candidates for AFLC World Missions, Missionary Assistants, and Missionary and Seminary wives who desire to continue their spiritual education.
The Missionary Assistant Fund: for individuals approved by the AFLC Missions Board to help serve our missionaries on the field.
Support received for the WMF General Fund will be used to cover necessary expenses. The National Board prepares, prints, and distributes the WMF Bible studies, Helping Hand newsletter, fall WMF Resource Manual updates and welcome packets to new congregations. Support also covers the administrative costs, salary for the Executive Secretary and stipends for the President and Treasurer and other expenses such as convention expenses, travel of officers, office equipment and supplies, communications between District and National officers. Some of our officers are willing to come and share information about the WMF and the work that we are involved in. Join us for encouragement, resources and WMF details on our website (www.aflc.org/women), (www.facebook.com/WomensMissionaryFederation/) and Instagram (www.instagram.com/wmfaflc/).
