What do I do?

Youth With a Mission (ywam)

Founded in 1960, YWAM is the largest mission organization in the world. YWAM now has over 1,100 locations in over 180 countries, with a staff of over 18,000 volunteers. The heart of YWAM is to worship God, to serve God’s global purposes, and to champion young people.

homes of hope

Starting with a one off house build in 1990 Homes of Hope has now built over 5,000 homes for families in need in 21 countries. I am currently a Builder with Homes of Hope and have been able to connect and build houses for 30+ families in Mexico and Uganda.

Discipleship training school (dts)

Starting in september I will become director of the Music and Mission DTS in Ensenada. The M+M DTS is a 5-month programme that seeks to bring people into a more intimate relationship with God. It also gives students an opportunity to develop their abilities and direct them toward a greater cause.

Music + Media

One of the things I love is being able to use my passions in my work. I am able to do sound and play guitar for worship teams at YWAM and at church in Ensenada. I am also able to use my photography and videography to create Media content for YWAM.

Base Duties

Part of my day to day work is to help keep the YWAM community functioning. Whether it is gardening, cleaning, cooking, or something else, no day is the same. This really helps to add value and become a part of the community.

Mission Adventures

Mission Adventures is a short term missions programme for teenagers. Teams do outreaches with local ministires in places such as orphanages, soup kitchens, rehab centres and also have the opportunity of building with Homes of Hope. There are also daily sessions with worship, biible study and amazing guest speakers.

Think back over the past month, What have you learned? What will you take away from those 4 short weeks? How has their content impacted you?

As I look back over the past 4 weeks it doesn't feel like that at all,  i'm not looking 'back' or at the 'past' at all. What I'm looking at is the future, the foundation for my next couple of months, no wait...it goes way beyond that.

A constant theme for me over the past month has been  developing my acceptance and dependence of Gods faithfulness....Truly accepting and depending.

Right now I am preparing to lead a team of 13 students on a 2 month outreach through Mexico and Belize. We will be ministering to the poor, helping in rehab centers, working in schools, serving any way we can and using music in as many ways as possible to connect with people and share the gospel. 

These next couple of months are hardly going to be a walk in the park, more like a marathon. 

There's the excitement and buzz, waiting for the start. 
The confident, sprinted first strides. 
Some time of ploding along and then.... 
'The Wall'. 
The only way I can break through that is with that true whole hearted dependence on God and his faithfulness.

That is what this month has prepared me for.

Getting through 'The Wall'.
