It Is Written Conducts Alaska Evangelism and Mission Trip

In spring 2024, It Is Written conducted a mission trip and evangelistic campaign in Alaska, culminating in the Revelation Today: Hope for Humanity series. 

In late March 2024, a mission team of 70 volunteers served in Anchorage, the largest city in Alaska, and Bethel, the largest rural community, ahead of the evangelistic series that began on April 5. The events were held in partnership with the Adventist Medical Evangelism Network and Alaska Conference.

John Bradshaw, It Is Written president, shared his excitement for the campaign and said, "It Is Written exists for the purpose of sharing the gospel. We're thrilled to be collaborating with the churches in Alaska. We have met many pastors and church members who are enthusiastic about what is taking place. The two mission teams are going to do great work for God, and we are trusting that the evangelistic meetings will reach many souls with the message for this time.”

The Revelation Today: Hope for Humanity series, held April 5 through May 4, is a Christ-centered Bible prophecy series led by Bradshaw and Wes Peppers, It Is Written evangelism director. Eight churches in Anchorage are working together to host the series, with a live stream being offered to more churches across the state.

In preparation for the series, It Is Written has held training events for local churches, teaching pastors and members how to effectively reach their community. 

“We've been helping to shape the culture there for mission and evangelism for more than a year,” said Peppers. “The evangelistic meetings are the culmination of that. As a result of our long-term training, the churches will be better equipped to continue the work that's been started."

The Revelation Today campaign followed a large-scale mission effort in Anchorage and Bethel to offer free medical, vision and dental care to the community. 

“AMEN has a well-established clinical process but wanted to scale up its evangelistic efforts. We’ve been wanting to increase our medical footprint, so this was a natural partnership,” said Peppers.

The Anchorage clinic offered medical, vision and dental care. The Bethel clinic offered medical care, but primarily focused on mental health, including consultations, depression and anxiety education, and professional counseling. Each clinic visitor was invited to attend the series and receive Bible studies.
