What I didn't realize about the sex industry in the USA

By Richard Fish on 15 Jan 2021

WHAT I DIDN'T REALIZE ABOUT THE SEX INDUSTRY IN THE USA

A YWAM outreach definitely opens your eyes to what's happening in the world around you. We love taking students on two month outreaches as part of their Discipleship Training School. It's in moments on busy downtown streets, a remote dusty village, on a crowded college campus, where God shows his love for the world. 

I was texting with a student on who is currently on outreach and decided to blog our conversation here for you to read. When God opens our eyes, there's just no going back.

20/20 Vision for America | An Interview with Author Chris Lascelles

By Richard Fish on 18 May 2020

20/20 VISION FOR AMERICA BOOK INTERVIEW WITH CHRIS LASCELLES

I caught YWAM Tyler's campus director, Chris Lascelles, just before he jumped on a tractor to haul hay to give to hurting farmers here in East Texas.

Once I read Chris's book, 20/20 Vision for America, I knew an interview was a must. I'd heard Chris talk about his purpose in writing this epic history lesson, but I did not expect to be drawn into it so deeply. An incredible message of hope for America is woven through it like a tapestry.
