9 Dangerous Words Changed My Life.

By Allison Bice on 21 Jan 2022

FOLLOWING GOD DOESN'T Always MAKE SENSE

I still owed $750 on tuition, and the $1,000 due for the outreach plane ticket was due that day. The trip to Greece was in just three weeks, and I needed an additional $2,000 on top of the airline ticket. I had no idea where this money was going to come from, and I was freaking out.

5 Ways I Paid For My DTS

By Kayla Norris on 26 Jun 2020

5 Ways I Paid for My YWAM DTS

Missions—it sounds wild, crazy, and just what you’ve always wanted. But you scroll down to where it says “fees”—and you stop. Maybe God has something else for you. You know, a cheaper option. Or a well-paying, safe option. 

But do you want to miss out on your miracle?

God Even Cares About French Fries

By Allison Bice on 13 Jul 2018

I love french fries. They are like little golden slices of awesomeness. Do you know what else? They usually aren't super expensive. It is great! Here at YWAM Tyler, there is an on-base restaurant, the Substation, where you can purchase said inexpensive french fries.

A Family Who Followed God Into Missions

By Chad Freeman on 4 Jun 2018

Seven 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.

 Prevailing Faith | YWAM Tyler

By Amy Fish on 4 Apr 2018

Imagine gathering around an empty table with a slew of orphans to thank the Lord for food that wasn't there. Hard to even believe, honestly; yet, it's true. George Mueller trusted God to the point he was willing to sit at a barren table and offer thanks to God for the food that He was going to supply. God had promised to provide all Mueller needed in caring for those children, so in that moment of need, Mueller banked on God's promise, and sure enough God did it! The doorbell rang, and fresh bread was placed before them all to enjoy for breakfast.

Only as a Millionaire or a Missionary

By Tyler Tom on 23 Mar 2018

My family and I were very excited and ready for what God had for us. We looked at the cost of the plane tickets for all four of us to travel. $5,000 USD. Our hearts sank. There was no way we could afford this.

A Brand New Journey with YWAM

By Tyler Tom on 13 Dec 2017

 I glanced at the calendar with a curious and excited look on my face. Two and a half months!? That seemed like an age! I sighed and closed my laptop, glancing once more at the calendar hanging on the wall before me. "Lord, if this is you, make a way and provide for it all. I'm going to need finances!" That was April 17th, 2017.
