The State of IT in YWAM – Google Hangout on Air

On Friday March 15 we will be having a Google Hangout / Webinar to talk about Information Technology in YWAM and how it is being used, and where we think it is going. Some of the topics that we will be talking about will be:

  • How IT is being used in the mission
  • Where we think it is going, and how we can continue to use it
  • What are some of the challenged we face in using IT
  • What can we do about the IT gap between YWAM locations

You can find out how you can participate, and what else we will be talking about on the YWAM IT web-site.

YWAM Iceland has been engaging in outreach at the yearly Iceland National Festival in the Westmann Islands for the past few years.

The outreach runs from July 27 – August 5th and includes a week of preparation and then four days at the festival. You can find out more about the outreach opportunity here.

YWAM Turner Valley – Nehemiah Project Fundraiser

YWAM Monrovia, Liberia

857017_379495472158469_184909503_oHello Friends, we want to share with you some of our plans for 2013.

The Lord has blessed us with 1.5 acre of land, along the road leading to the international airport. But this land need to be developed, we are paying too much on rent and we can’t continue this any more. We always take the last quarter of the year raising money for our rent.

The estimated cost of the first building was put to $50,000, but we have decided now to use some local materials for the construction of the first two buildings (Residential and Administrative). So, with this new development  we will be able to use the same amount to construct two of the buildings. We need $10,000 to start the foundation for the two building in November 2013.
