Calling Young World Travelers!
And Supporters Too!
The “2 x 2 =MORE” project, sponsored by the Northern Light Society of Alaska, is headed into its second year of assisting young adults to accompany an International Outreach Team as they venture to Book Fairs in both Guatemala and the Philippines this summer and fall. Our first sponsored, young adult, Janelle Mazza of Las Vegas successfully represented this project in Santiago, Chile in October 2012.
Book Fairs have been a great way of introducing and explaining The Urantia Book to people of all different faiths, races, ages and beliefs. They generally take about 5 days (plus travel days) and end with a mini conference or study session. Every day is a surprise as you meet and greet your fellows. This kind of a trip truly gives you the opportunity to grow your own skills, talents and soul as you listen, talk and share with new people and great team members of the International Fellowship Committee, led by its chairman, Buck Weimer.
Guatemala: July 26-August 4, 2013
Philippines: September 11-15, 2013
The Northern Light Society members developed this project after traveling to Nigeria in May of 2012 and learned how valuable this experience was to our growth. We now fundraise throughout our Urantia community to educate about the efforts of the IFC and to ask for support in helping us with the travel costs and expenses of those wanting to participate in the “2 x 2=MORE” project.
Participants will need to have a spirit of adventure and stamina, be at least 21, have a valid passport, answer some vetting questions and write a short essay to help with this selection process. To learn more about this project, please view our video at www.urantiaalaska.org To begin this process, contact me, Barb Maier, Secretary of the Northern Light Society of Alaska and a member of the IFC at firstname.lastname@example.org. Do it as soon as possible please.
We also encourage financial support from our greater Urantia community! Donations can be made through the Pay Pal button on our website. Any adults that would like to travel with us are most welcome too!
