“The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. . .” Isaiah 9:2
The area north of the Arctic Circle: 24-hour sunlight in summer and 24-hour darkness in winter. It is difficult for churches to get ministry personnel to these very isolated communities for regular services and programs for youth, and expensive travel costs also challenge On Eagle’s Wings there.
So we invite you to join the North of the Arctic Circle 24 x 24 Project.
On Eagle’s Wings holds its Bible Camps across the far North, compelled by Christ’s mission to spread the good news of the gospel despite the challenges of great distance. But we can’t do this without your support.
We are calling on you to raise $24 for On Eagle’s Wings in a fun and creative way and tell 24 people about it. If 1000 people contributed in this way, our costs for Arctic travel for Bible Camps would be covered for one summer and new generation of over 500 northern children will know the hope they have in Jesus Christ.
Our yearly travel costs are immense. Compare these example prices within the North with vacation destinations from our ministry base in Yellowknife.

What’s your “24”?
Be imaginative with your project! How about a 24-hour sporting event, or making 24 quilt squares? You could walk 24 k in a month, hold a 2.4 k race, or hold a bake sale with 24 desserts!
Who are your 24? Tell your family, share it on Facebook—we want word to get out! Make it a goal to share your 24x24 project with 24 people.
