  • YWAM Ship in Australia
    • The YWAM Ship spent the last two weeks in Adelaide, South Australia. While it was there the ship was featured on the Channel 10 News. Here is the interview (update: this video was shot in Sydney, not Adelaide. Sorry for the error and thanks for the feedback):
    • YWAM Ships is running a fun little contest at the moment. If you are living in the Townsville region and are between the ages of 11 – 18 then you need to have a look at the contest.  You need to create a five minute or less video of you making a “spectacle” out of yourself. Check out the web-site from the link in the show notes.
  • YWAM International Prayer Day
    • http://prayerday.org/
    • Two visions
      • Ministries birthed before they have been fully formed and prayed into. Leads to still-born ministries.
      • Our inner life is much smaller than the vision that God has given us as a ministry. We need to rely more and accept more from God to be able to fulfil what God has called us to.
  • Haiti
    • With the hurricane season starting in only four weeks there is still a huge need for accommodation. Find out how you can help provide shelter for some of the refuges in Haiti:

    • In at least one of the tent camps some of the women are starting a business making baby slings. This simple act is helping to give the women a new sense of purpose and pride.

    • In a partnership with Kids Against Hunger YWAM in Minneapolis is putting together 100,000 packaged meals to Haiti. Their long term goal is to deliver half a million meals and up till now they have sent off more than 36,000 meals.
    • Because YWAM is staffed by all volunteers the project is running very lean and they are able to make each meal for only 23 cents each. All the money for this project comes from donations.
    • The US Navy and Coast Guard are delivering the meals at no cost for YWAM or for Kids Against Hunger.
