Mission Focus

Each week we are asking our congregation to be in prayer for one of our supported missionaries or local mission agency. This week we ask that we each bring Tristin Jackson, one of our mission partners, to God in prayer.

Tristin continues to serve with Covenant Youth of Alaska, directing the ministry to University of Alaska students in Fairbanks. She sent this photo to us last month, expressing how good it was to have higher temps, more sunlight and be able to spend more time outdoors!

It’s been a busy spring for Tristin – planning and conducting a Young Adult Retreat in February (with the theme of being “plugged in” to God, our source of life) and men’s and women’s retreats at Camp Liwa in April; large group gatherings each Friday night diving into the topic of identity; observing the season of Lent on a personal level; conducting small group bible studies; and speaking at Aarigaa gatherings. As the semester comes to a close, Covenant Youth of Alaska is preparing for the summer camping season for youth throughout the state.

Tristin shares these prayer requests for this time in her ministry:

  • Please pray for God to continue growing our students at Aarigaa Fairbanks. Pray for our students as the semester wraps up, the end of the semester can be a very stressful time with making summer plans and final exams/projects.
  • Praise God for the academic and community achievements of our students, it is a joy to see them succeeding and thriving.
  • Please pray for Covenant Bible Camp in the planning and preparation process for this upcoming summer camp season.
  • Please pray for the communities of Western Alaska as they continue to grieve the loss of lives by suicide.
