A few days ago I was pondering a quote by Lou Engle (one of my heroes): "The world needs wild men and women of God!"

The world around us is changing every day. How will we reach it with the truth of a living God? The following is written by a full time Youth With A Mission missionary whose main field is cities and the people in them.

It was the day before we were to leave on our outreach to LA & Alaska. Our family's airline tickets had already been purchased, but the remaining needed funds, which amounted to $2500, was still unpaid. We were the only team members lacking too. First thing that morning, our school leader met with us to make sure we clearly understood the expectations; we couldn’t go on outreach if we didn’t...

 

A few years ago, I began to develop seasonal allergies. It got so bad my vocal chords were actually damaged. For a time my voice hurt all day, every day. As a worship leader,  it was very sad for me because I could barely sing. Yet singing worship songs is my favorite thing to do!

On a trip to South Asia, my colleague and I smuggled Bibles into a country that persecuted Christians and never allowed the Bible to be brought in or published. We knew it was God’s desire to give His Word to people in their heart language, so we took a risk and stuffed fifty Bibles into our luggage.

Sitting in a small circle with others from my DTS team, I was beginning to get a little uncomfortable. We were asked to sit quietly and “hear” from God about something we were to do and somewhere to go for our outreach. I was a little nervous.

Repeatedly punching my steering wheel and reminding God of how expertly He had crafted my middle finger had kind of become my thing. My west-Texan-pastors-kid bubble had officially popped. My former modicum of faith had been crushed under the weight of my cynicism, self pity, and reclusiveness, and I seriously wanted to die. Needless to say, my first (and as it turned out, my only)...

During my time in a small fishing village named Naknek, I met a young lady whom I’ll never forget. We had gone to this particular home to actually connect with a young man I had met on the streets a few days prior, yet God’s plan was to connect my heart with this girl instead and become part of the rescue operation in her life.

Six years ago, our family found ourselves living life the only way we knew how. We owned a business, worked really hard, lived in the home of our dreams, and were very involved in our local church. However, like many Americans, we had tons of debt and the job was literally killing me.

If you're having a hard time raising funds for your upcoming YWAM school, we want you to know you're not the only one. Many past students have found this to be a challenge at some point in their journey, but they've seen God's faithfulness to provide and first hand discovered that nothing is too difficult for Him. We hope Adeline's story will encourage you to trust God for any needed...

 

 

 

 

We'd love to talk to with you.
