MISSION'S STORIES

Publishing God's stories among the nations.

Thousands of desperate people stranded at the U.S/Mexico border.

We could hardly take in what we were seeing. Fear and turmoil seemed to permeate the atmosphere when our YWAM Tyler team arrived in McAllen, Texas. We saw masses of displaced people without hope, searching for a future. 

How can we have an impact there? We can't afford to be idle and watch this madness ruin lives. Sharing the Gospel isn't complicated. Making God known starts with valuing life. Our team went to see first hand what was taking place there.

Kyra Wright, part of our staff, shared her observations on this scouting trip to the border. We are simply seeking the Lord to understand the next steps we can take to serve humanity in this crisis.

Look around and ask yourself this question, "Am I fulfilling all I know Jesus wants to me do with my life?" If the answer is, yes, than keep going all out for Him and share with us how we can better pray for you. If your answer is no or I'm not sure, take 5 months of your life and sign up for a DTS. Every year 100's show up here from around the world,  step into a life filled with purpose, and take His love to the nations .
