Responding to the Refugee Crisis

What does love look like? This is the question that has been rolling around in my head for the past few months. What does love look like here, now, in this circumstance? As I’ve been reading and wrestling with God, I see that love is sacrificial; it doesn’t get irritated, it forgets past wrongs and it’s willing to suffer if that means freedom for someone else.

Broadening Our Horizons

In 2004 God apprehended my heart and did a work of cleaning out the junk in my life through prayer ministry. It was then that I first learnt how to hear God’s voice and my heart was set alight to follow after Him, no matter what the cost. Continue reading

Created to Create

When I was a kid, I decided that I was going to make a daily newspaper for my neighbourhood. Obviously, as a 7-year-old, you don’t know much about the world. So I filled the pages with what I knew of my own. Continue reading

Diving into the Unknown

Saying “yes” to God is not a hard thing to do, but putting action to that “yes” is where the doubt and fear comes in. After years of dreaming, praying, and planning, our first Mission Adventures trip took flight, literally. Continue reading

A Missional Community

Then the Lord said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make a helper fit for him.” When God was creating mankind – the creation that was to reflect His image – He made Adam. But there needed to be more. There needed to be relationship and so he made Eve.  Continue reading

The Foundational Values of YWAM

“These are the values of YWAM,” our school leader said, motioning to a short list in our handouts. It was a September day and here we were; a group of teens and twenty-somethings from all over the world, hungry to know God more, with no idea what to expect from the six months ahead of us.

How it all Started

As an 18-year-old, I had no idea what I was doing going to Wollongong, Australia. I wanted to grow closer to God and had an urge for adventure. And so I found myself on a plane over the Pacific. Within hours of arriving, I was in a worship time with folks from all over the world, kicking of our very first Discipleship Training School. Continue reading

Unreached People Groups

To be “unreached” means that an entire people group could spend their entire lives without ever hearing the good news about Jesus and His kingdom. Not once. Many of these unreached people groups live in a part of the world called the 10/40 window – an area that spans from the shores of Morocco to the east coast of China – and holds 1/3 of the world’s population.

The Greatest in the Kingdom

My favourite description of God’s kingdom is in Isaiah 65. The prophet paints a picture of community where the sounds of weeping and distress are replaced by delight and rejoicing, where people have the homes and food and safety that they need; where work is enjoyed and children are born into hope.

Going to all Nations

14 years ago, in the midst of a life buzzing with little children, full time jobs and being absolutely ‘head over heels’ in love with our local church service to God, we heard something new: a beckoning invitation to “Come with me. Come and see what I am doing”. God overwhelmed me with the desire to go deeper and go further. Go, go , go. Continue reading
