YWAM Venezuela Update I was able to get in touch with some of our staff working in Venezuela and they were able to send me this update for what is happening in their country. The main issue here right now is a potential civil war if the current regime in power goes more radical into stop all ways for a democratic process. It’s a little weird to explain but we have two presidents right now. One is Nicolas Maduro in power by controlling all ways to force his presidency and the other is Juan Guaido who is the National Assembly Speaker and in our constitution he is the Intern president but with none military support. The economy is crashing down every day with a inflation of 1.000.000 %. Lack of food and medicines for more than 60% of the population. All this makes more complicated the daily basis of life. YWAM is working among the poor and needy. Our base in Caracas has a feeding program that every week serves around 300 meals. We have also a base in Puerto La Cruz who is helping with kids ministry also on a feeding program. This Spring a new YWAM base will be born in the South Eastern side in Ciudad Bolivar. All YWAM locations are now providing Biblical training to end Bible poverty and there are DTS programs to start running this March, BBC and BSN as well. (the person I contacted is) part of a coaching circle for YWAM here, also in Dominican Republic at YWAM Villa Mella base. (That person) will be traveling to Dominican Republic next week to make connections for raising support for our feeding programs in Venezuela. Since I was in touch with them we have seen on the news increased conflict between the different factions in Venezuela, including government forces driving over and open firing on protesters. Let’s please pray for that country and the people there … New Vessel for YWAM Ships Aotearoa We are really excited to let you know that YWAM in New Zealand has been donated a new ship (audio from here) … You can hear and find out more about the new vessel and the ministry that they will be doing in the South Pacific on their web-site,  ywamshipsaotearoa.org.nz.

They offer services like homework help, sports coaching, and English club to kids and adults around them and to try to meet the needs of the local community. They help those who are vulnerable to be and feel safe, experience love, and to learn about the perfect love of Jesus. The YWAM Chaing Mai community centre has a vision to fulfill God’s purpose for the lives for sexually exploited individuals, families, and communities. Their mission is to “help transform those affected by sexual exploitation, and their communities, through education and holistic healing, so that they can find complete freedom and reach their full potential in Christ. Find out more about the community centre on their web-site, ywamchaingmai.org. You can find out how you can get involved, including their current staffing and volunteer needs, on that web-site. Faith and Conflict – Bosnia and Herzegovina YWAM Bosnia and Herzegovina, in partnership with YWAM Ireland, will be running the third Faith and Conflict experience starting on Thursday May,23 in Mostar. Starting in the beautiful, but divided city of Mostar, we will spend two days finding out what it is like to live in a city where, as they locals describe it, “the war has never ended”, 25 years after peace was signed. We also plan to take part in the GLOBAL OUTREACH DAY with an event with the local churches. We then move on to Sarajevo, a city rebuilt, but which still has the scars of the siege which took place here in the 1990s. We will experience some of what it was like to live here during that time, but also explore more of how “faith” caused the conflict and what we can learn from their experience in our own journeys of faith and forgiveness. Besides listening to “local voices”, we will also hear from Jonny Clark and others from YWAM Ireland who have worked for many years in the area of reconciliation in that country. You can have a look at their Facebook Page (linked in the shownotes) to find out more about the event.

Training YWAM Montana – Outdoor Ministry Course YWAM Montana offers a very exciting outdoor ministry course … Watch this video on YouTube. They run the course every year and the next course will be starting up in January next year. Find out more on their web-site, ywammontana.org. Relational Fundraising Course Everyone in Youth With A Mission is a volunteer, and our financial support comes from people, organisations, and churches who partner with us in ministry through financial sponsorships and fundraising. To be released into missions every YWAMer needs a financial and prayer team behind them, and there are resources made available to assist in that. Terry Sherman has developed a free, on-line Relational Fundraising course that has been made available to YWAM staff and students on the YWAM eLearning platform. The course is designed to equip YWAMers to build a team of ministry partners who will financially support them in ministry. The Online course is designed around 4-modules Introduction – Talking about the vital need for this sort of training, share some of Terry’s own experiences from her early years, explain why fundraising is done in a relational way in YWAM, and set the stage for changing people’s mindset about raising support. The Biblical View of Fundraising – Money is a controversial topic. How we were raising in our families and cultures mostly determines how we think about money. The Bible talks more about money than almost any other subject, but most of us haven’t learned God’s perspective on it. It’s essential that we learn His ways regarding money, and to understand the spiritual dynamics that come into play when we step out to invite partnership for Kingdom purposes. Essential Tools to Communicate Vision – Vision leads the way in fundraising! Communicating vision well is essential to inviting people to partner with us. Students will explore different tools to help them better communicate their vision for mission. Create your Personal Fundraising Plan – This final module shows students how they can create their own plan and strategy for raising their FULL amount of support that they need to do ministry. You can sign up for free to this do-it-yourself, at your own pace course, at the YWAM eLearning web-site at ywamelearning.com.

Today we start the podcast with a message from Bevin, from GlobalCast Resources, reminding us that God is Already There … Watch this video on YouTube. You can find more resources from GlobalCast Resources at their web-site, globalcastresources.com. YWAM Responds to the Camp Fire With the destructive wildfires that tore through parts of California YWAM bases came together to help the people who were affected by the fires. Here is a statement from YWAM Redding, which was one of the locations that was involved in the relief work … As you may have heard, California’s deadliest and most destructive wildfire in state history, called the “Camp Fire” recently swept through Paradise, CA, just an hour and a half south of Redding. Sadly, it has taken over 70 lives, left over 1,000 still missing, and destroyed over 10,000 homes. Over the last week, YWAM Redding staff and students have spent hours manning a distribution center for the victims of the Fire with the collaboration of our YWAM Family. About a week ago, some leaders in our YWAM community had a deep desire to help the hurting community, and as they went around the city God gave them a practical solution: collect donations and give to those who have lost everything. The collecting and giving process that started out with 3 bags of clothes, turned very quickly into a whole parking lot full of organized items ready for Paradise residents to collect as needed, as well as multiple free of charge food vendors, portable bathrooms and full generator-run showers. We are now moved into an old Toys ‘R’ Us building and have plans to continue the center for another 6 months! We still need your help! As of now, we have plenty of donations, what we need is for volunteers to give their time to sort, organize and be a part of the amazing donation process! We could use about 20 volunteers around the clock for the next couple of weeks. If you, or your church, or a group of friends are able/willing to give your time, we would love to have you! You can message YWAM Redding for more info, or feel free to just show up! The best place to find out how you can get involved is to check out the YWAM Redding Facebook Page and the YWAM Chico Facebook page. From there you can see a few different ways that you can get involved … Fountain of Life The Fountain of Life ministry works to help solve the problems of a lack of access to safe water, poor basic sanitation, and improper personal hygiene. It does this through a novel approach with a focus on three different areas: Education Appropriate Technology Multiplication One of the characteristics that really stands out to me with this ministry is their commitment to making the use of appropriate technology to be be central to what they do. Their solutions are effective, accessible, low-cost, and easy to implement. They drill wells using locally sourced materials, local craftsmen, with simple to understand and inexpensive to repair pumps. Check out the Fountain of Life web-site at fountainoflife.org.uk to find out more about about their ministry into Africa, and different ways that you can get involved. Creative Imagebearers Aleck Cartwright, The International Dean for the College of Communications with the University of the Nations, has launched an exciting project called Creative Imagebearers, with a focus on discovering your own embodied spirituality… Watch this video on YouTube. It looks like exciting project that you sign up for free at creativeimagebearers.com. I’ve started to go through it myself, and I’m looking forward to seeing what God can reveal to me during the process. YWAM Truro “Eldering Stories” YWAM Truro in Canada has launched a program recording the stories and history of the elders of YWAM Canada.

YWAMer assists in recovery from Brazil’s Deadliest Environmental Disaster Earlier this year Brazil experienced their deadliest environmental disaster when a dam near an iron ore mine in Brumadinho burst it’s barrier, flooding another dam below that one.

This incident is the deadliest mining disaster in the country, with around 300 people feared dead.

The sludge from the dam cut through the dam’s complex, nearby farms, and the neighbourhood where many of the workers lived. It destroyed houses and vehicles in the area. A YWAMer, Juliana Silveira, traveled from São Paulo to Brumadinho to help with the recovery in any what that she could.

Continued Work in the Philippines, The Importance of Community in YWAM, Flying Car in Australia

This week we will catch up on the continued YWAM relief work in the Philippines, find out what work YWAM Dehrandun is continuing to do in India after the devastating floods in June, 2013 that left about 5700 people dead, get to hear from YWAM Los Angeles about the importance of community, hear about the flying car recently acquired by YWAM Ships Australia, check out some upcoming outreach and training opportunities, and more … Stories: Philippines Updates Currently there are 25 teams operating in the Philippines, with more teams planning to be there in the coming weeks and months. More of our teams are beginning to help typhoon victims by distributing tools and helping rebuild homes and schools. However, since commerce and income sources were also devastated, people are still dependent on basic relief supplies for survival. This will continue for quite some time, until agriculture and commerce is re-established. Bodies are still being recovered, and there is still a large number of missing. There is less typhoon-related critical medical work, and more of the normal chronic cases. Ormoc still has some functional commerce, and will remain an important part of the “lifeline” in Leyte. Some of the work that YWAM has been a part of is: Distributing relief packages and helping rebuild homes Water purification Emergency medical field centre Non-critical Medical work Cellphone charging centres Debris cleanup On Dec 5, 253 solar-powered lights and 150 building tool kits were distributed, then the team prepared for a move into the new YWAM Tacloban house (rental) beside Alejandro Hotel. YWAM Philippines Facebook Page Steps of Justice Philippines Response Trip The reason that we are setting up and going on this trip is in response to the great need in the Philippines. We believe that when such a disaster occurs our responsibility is to respond in some way, this is our response. We would love you to join us January 20-28. www.stepsofjustice.org Team Xtreme Preaching in Filipino Prisons Team Xtreme Tonga preaching the Gospel in the Prisons,in the Philippines Setting the captives free. www.facebook.com/teamxtremeintl Prayer for the burial teams YWAM staff has recovered or buried 54 bodies (not including those loaded and transported on truck).

This is physically and mentally draining. Read the latest update on the YWAM Global web-site. YWAM Dehradun Relief Team work in India YWAM Dehradun continues to have teams helping in the flood ravaged areas in India. Many of the areas are still without electricity and YWAM has been providing them with solar power lights to help in the area. YWAM has also continued to work in the villages to help provide clean water. To find clean water extremely deep wells need to be drilled and YWAM has been busy repairing some of the hand pumps that were damaged in the floods, and digging new wells for new hand pumps. While they are busy helping in the villages there are also many opportunities to share the gospel and build relationships in the villiages. YWAM Dehradun needs your prayers and support to continue to minister in these flood affected villages. You can read more on their web-site, ywam-dehradun.org. Living in YWAM Community YWAM Los Angeles produced a great video about why we live in community in YWAM, and how important it is to our mission. ywamla.org YWAM Ships Australia Acquired a Flying Car YWAM Townsville recently received the first flying car in Australia, the Maverick. YWAM currently has a team working on how the vehicle could best be used in Australia and Papua New Guinea.

When YWAM Charlotte started their Thanksgiving outreach they began by serving Thanksgiving meals to the poor and needy out of a Wendy’s in their city. After doing that for a few years they were asked by some of the neighbours that they were serving if they could do it themselves, and out of that the current outreach was began.

Update from South Sudan, Philippines Relief Work, Commonwealth Games Outreach, Loren Cunningham on Jesus is Winning

This week on the YWAM News Podcast we will hear from Loren Cunningham as he shares about how Jesus is winning, get a report from YWAM in South Sudan after the recent coup attempt, get another update about YWAM’s continued relief work in the Philippines, hear about the upcoming Glasgow Commonwealth Games outreach, and more … Stories: Jesus is Winning – by Loren Cunningham YWAM South Sudan Safe After Coup Attempt We received this update from our team in South Sudan: John is in Yei at our YWAM base there… he went up yesterday and was planning to stay all week, coming back to Arua on Friday. He called when he arrived and said that things were fine in Yei and the situation seemed to be localised in and around Juba, but since then fighting has broken out again. We haven’t heard from him yet today and it is now 8:30 pm. We believe he’s fine and safe, but we would have liked to have talked to him again this evening to find out what the news is on the ground. We would greatly appreciate prayers for safety for John, the YWAM team, and a group of YWAMers from Chiang Rai, Thailand, who are on outreach there at the moment. Also, if any decisions regarding evacuation need to be taken, please pray they would have wisdom in doing so. The border between Uganda and South Sudan closest to Juba has been closed since Sunday night, as is the airport, and telephone networks have been severely limited (which may be why we haven’t heard from John today). One of our staff members, Mario, crossed into South Sudan using the border crossing closest to Yei that John used, and that border was still open today, but it may close down if the fighting escalates. We don’t know if that means John and the rest would be stuck in South Sudan or not. You can follow YWAM South Sudan on their Facebook page. YWAM Philippines Relief Work Update Darlene Cunningham and Danny Lehman have called for engagement of YWAM school leaders into the Philippines in response to the Yolanda disaster. Here are some quotes from the meetings that they have recently had about YWAM’s response to it: We believe that God has positioned YWAM in an amazing way to respond with great effectiveness at this critical time. The Visayas are often considered the “heart” of the Philippines, so this opportunity is doubly significant. We have been amazed by the Holy Spirit’s coordination of YWAM’s response. Although communication was severely limited, our local and international teams quickly found locations as well as ways to effectively reach out to the storm victims. It soon became clear that God was leading YWAM to four strategic centers: Tacloban City, Ormoc City, Bogo City in northern Cebu Island, and northern Panay Island. From these centers we can systematically adopt and engage in rehabilitation and restoration of the smaller surrounding communities. It has become abundantly clear that God is calling us to the long-term rebuilding of communities, both practically and spiritually. The walls are down, we are strategically positioned, and we are moving and ready to move to take full advantage of this unprecedented opportunity. How can you engage with us? By sending teams of all types to help us pioneer in these four key locations and from these locations engage in the rebuilding of hope among the Filipino people. We will help your teams find housing, connect with local ministries, and discover practical ways to use the many giftings God has given to our YWAM family. You can read the full letter about how you can be involved in the rebuilding and relief work in the Philippines on their Facebook Page. Gleanings for the Hungry Ships Container Shipments Gleanings for the Hungry operates as a mercy ministry of Youth With A Mission. Their mission is to help feed the hungry of the world both spiritually and physically. In the summer they sun dry peaches and nectarines. They also produce a dried soup mix from bulk dehydrated vegetables. What they produce they then ship it to over 40 countries around the world. This year Gleanings for the Hungry was able to make over 23,000,000 servings of soup! In the past few weeks Gleanings for the Hungry has sent containers to the Philippines, Romania, and Israel. In addition to the dried food they also included quilts in some of the shipments. Find out more about Gleanings for the Hungry at gleanings.org.

You can contact us, subscribe to future episodes, leave comments, and find links to all the stories we talk about in the show notes for this podcast at ywampodcast.com/113… Stories: Cyclone Idai in Mozambique Cyclone Idai crossed the coast in central Mozambique on the night of March 14, 2019. The cyclone had sustained winds of 195 km/h (120 mph) and damaged or destroyed thousands of structures. The strong winds were accompanied by heavy rain and flooding throughout Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and Malawi. It has been estimated that there are over 1000 deaths attributed to the cyclone so far, with some estimating that it could reach into the tens of thousands dead. Around 1.7 million people are affected across South East Africa, with 100,000 people needing urgent rescue near the city of Beira. There is no running water or electricity in much of the area, and many homes have been swept away and roads destroyed by floods. Over 400,000 Mozambicans are estimated to now be homeless. There are reports of cholera in the area, and there is risk of other outbreaks, including malaria, which is already increasing. Two Youth With A Mission centres have been affected by this natural disaster. Thankfully no YWAM staff or students have reportedly lost their lives, but they are trying to recover from the shock of the disaster. Both locations have had the majority of their buildings severely damaged. YWAM Beira runs a home for 29 boys and young men and a community school for over 600 students. Classrooms, dorms and other facilities have all been damaged. YWAM Dondo runs a preschool for 68 children, a laboratory to diagnose malaria and a HIV patient care program and pastors seminars and much more. The classrooms, accommodation, laboratory, and clinic have all been damaged. There are also many people in the communities around the Youth With a Mission locations that are in desperate need of help. Youth With A Mission is engaging in a unified response to this crisis. YWAM has linked up with RescueNet and Mercy Air to ensure that they are giving the best response possible. Mercy Air has already done a flyover assessment and RescueNet Europe is on their way to provide some of the necessary assistance. Watch this video on YouTube. To allow for a swift and coordinated flow of resources YWAM Southern Africa has set-up a dedicated office managed by John Sulter and Dave Peter at YWAM Muizenberg, South Africa. The office will manage donations and communications for people wanting to donate to help, and for people or teams who may wish to volunteer in the rebuilding effort. You can contact the office directly to find out how to donate and help at mzidai@ywammuizenberg.org. The situation in Mozambique is very serious. We ask that you would please be generous towards our brothers and sisters in Christ in Mozambique. They are in desperate need of food, water, shelter, and medical supplies. (source) There are regular updates coming to us from the teams in South East Africa, and we will be updating you in the upcoming shows so that you can know what’s going on and how you can help. YWAM Lebanon USA Fire The YWAM Lebanon, Pennsylvania base had an accidental fire on the morning of March 27. At the time there were 17 people in the building. All 17 people evacuated the building without any injuries, but the entire building is destroyed. In addition to the building being destroyed, so was all of their furniture, office equipment and supplies, computers, phones, cameras, personal items and clothing, and more … They have started up a GoFundMe page to raise money to replace all of the lost items and are also looking for a temporary office space in the downtown area of Lebanon.

YWAM Urban Keys Stop Traffic for the Unborn On March 26 YWAM Urban Key in London, England YWAM Staff and Students took a stand for the unborn on International Day of the Unborn Child. They did this by stopping traffic on the Westminster Bridge for 9-minutes to stand for the 9-million lives lost since the abortion law pass in the UK in 1967. In addition to paying tribute to all those babies that lost their lives, they also brought awareness in hope that society would stand up and make a difference for the lives fighting for their right to be born. An unborn baby is a human life, just like another other, and it has a right to live. You can find out more about the protest on the YWAM London Urban Keys Facebook page. “University in a Box” Mobile Classroom YWAM San José, Costa Rica recently completed their first mobile classroom, or “University in a Box”. A team took a shipping container and put it through an adaptation process to transform it into a mobile classroom. Their desire is to take education to remote areas in their nation. Based on the photos on YWAM San Jose’s Facebook Page it looks to be a very modern set-up, offering many options for training including STEM subjects. Joshua Project App YWAM Frontier Missions recently recommended an app for Unreached People Groups by the Joshua Project called “Unreached of the day”. The app has information on over 7,000 UPGs. It features a different people group to learn about and pray for each day.

Reports from The Send were extremely positive with: Over 70,000 Christians gathered in Orlando for the Send, including many from Youth With A Mission, including our founder Loren Cunningham. A report from The Send said that, “At The Send, we are calling every believer to take action. So far 16,656 have committed to fasting, 2,145 commitments to reaching High Schools, 1,878 committed to Universities, 4,134 committed to reaching their neighborhood. 482 have responded to the gospel.” Schools: Jesus’ last commandment to us was to: … go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. (Mat. 28: 19-20) Anyone that tell you not to go out and tell people about Jesus is telling you to disobey what Jesus actually told us to do. Youth With A Mission is all about “Knowing God and Making Him Known”, as such much of our training and ministries are built around that … Muslim World School of Frontier Missions (SOFM) The Muslim World School of Frontier Missions (SOFM) is for people who have a passion to share Jesus with Muslims. It’s for people who want to share Jesus in places where there are few known believers. In Chaing Mai Youth With A Mission will be running a dual track School of Frontier Missions, preparing students to share the Good News with Muslims and Buddhists of Southeast and Central Asia. The training helps students to understand the worldview and belief systems of unreached people groups, plant growing churches, and get placed on a team that will help guide students as they learn the language and begin to bear fruit. The school involves a lot of hands-on training. Staff and students will be experiencing different cultures, worship styles, and local-style evangelism throughout the school. They will visit local mosques and temples, spend time in local communities, and learn from the people around them. Students get to hear from experienced field workers, staff and church planters, who have had years of ministry experience, countless stories, and eye-opening case studies that the students can learn from Head over to ywamchiangmai.org to find out more about this school and their outreach to the Muslim world.

Family Ministry, Night Life Outreach, Buying a Sex Cinema, YWAM Honoured at Buckingham Palace

YWAM foundational value #15 is about Families, and there are ministries all over the world with a focus on families, YWAM Romania outreaches to the party scene on the coastal beaches, YWAM looks at buying an old sex cinema in Greece, YWAM Medical Ships Australia is honoured at Buckingham Palace, and more on this episode of the YWAM News Show Podcast … Thank you for downloading this, the 110th episode of the Youth With A Mission News Show Podcast, I’m your host, Bill Hutchison. You can contact us, subscribe to future episodes, leave comments, and find links to all the stories we talk about on the show notes for this podcast at ywampodcast.com/110 … Stories: YWAM Family Ministry International YWAM Foundational Value # 15 states: YWAM affirms the importance of families serving God together in missions, not just the father and/or mother. We encourage the development of strong and healthy family units, with each member sharing the call to missions and contributing their gifts in unique and complementary ways. With a focus on this foundational value, YWAM Family Ministries has a mission: To disciple families with biblical principles for life and relationships that they may be transformed and become agents of transformation – expanding God’s kingdom and bringing His blessing to the nations. I’ll let them explain it themselves … Watch this video on YouTube. Darlene Cunningham Shares about Strengthening the Family At the latest Youth With A Missions Gathering, YWAM Together in Thailand, Darlene Cunningham, one of YWAM’s founders, share with us why it’s important to be strengthening families… Watch this video on YouTube. YWAM Family Ministries is involved in many ministries around the world, including training, outreach, family camps, counseling, resource development, and more… Family Ministry Camps in Slovakia One of the ministries that they run are family camps in Slovakia. This past summer three family camps were run in Slovakia with over 470 participants, including children and their team. Each day during the camps included humour, Biblical teaching and application, small groups, personal stories, fun and sports, and outreach and service opportunities. Story here. Families in Ministry Book The Leaders of YWAM Family Ministries, Andreas and Angela Frész have been married since 1980 and have served in YWAM in 70 different nations. During that time they have been blessed with 2 children and 7 grandchildren. It was at a Family Ministries camp 30-years ago that their marriage was saved. Since then they have built a strong marriage team, and a strong family. The change in their life was such that they have recorded what God has done in their lives, and what He can do in your life, in the Families in Ministries book. If you head over to families-in-ministry.com, you can sign up to receive the first chapter for free, have a look at more of their resources, and order the book for yourself. Over 1000 Family Ministry Opportunities in YWAM I had a look at the YWAM.org web-site and using the search feature I found that there are actually over 1000 different family ministry opportunities in the mission. This includes almost 350 outreaches and almost 100 different training opportunities around the world.

YWAM Responds to Kerela Floods, Fight Against Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery

Youth With A Mission responds to the devastating floods in Kerela, India, we explore the global problem of human trafficking and what YWAM is doing to fight it, now is your last chance to register for YWAM Together 2018 in Thailand, YWAM works to bring relief to Lombok, Indonesia after a recent earthquake, YWAM Organic brings us three new stories this month, and more on this episode of the Youth With A Mission News Show Podcast … Thank you for downloading this, the 108th episode of the Youth With A Mission News Show Podcast, I’m your host, Bill Hutchison. You can contact us, subscribe to future episodes, leave comments, and find links to all the stories we talk about on the show notes for this podcast at ywampodcast.com/108 … Stories: YWAM Task Force for Kerala Flood Victims Floods in the southern Indian state of Kerala have killed over 350 people since June. According to YWAM Kochi, which is in the state of Kerala, it is the worst natural disaster that they have seen. The rains have forced authorities to open 33 dams in the state and the majority of the state is flooded. Roads are washed away and places have been completely isolated. YWAM Kochi is responding to the needs in their state in a few different ways… Already hundreds of people are staying at their location, and there are government doctors visiting and helping the people staying there. They have an urgent need of: Blankets Bed sheets Mats Food YWAM Kochi is also putting together a task force of skilled and able people to assist with the rehabilitation of the Flood Victims. If you are able to help with either of these needs visit their web-site, ywamkochi.org, to get in touch with them, or contact then through their Facebook page. The Global Fight Against Human Trafficking and Slavery Are we doing enough in the global fight against modern slavery and human trafficking? According to the International Labour Organisation (ILO), an agency of the United Nations, UN, there are currently an estimated 40.3-million people in modern slavery and 152 million in child labour around the world. Of the victims of modern slavery 1 in 4, or over 10-million, are children. Many of these victims are exploited in the private sector, such as domestic work, construction, or agriculture. Almost 5-million are victims in the commercial sex industry, of which 99% are women. Often overlooked in the modern slavery numbers is also the over 15-million people, of whom almost 85% are women, who are in forced marriages. Over a third of all victims of forced marriage were children at the time of the marriage. Of those people who are trafficked, 99% are never rescued! Watch this video on YouTube. There are many examples of modern day slavery happening around the world … Human Trafficking in Nepal and India Recently a team from YWAM Madison visited a village in Nepal and saw first hand the results of human trafficking on the village there. Watch this video on YouTube. Slave Labour in the Middle East Gulf States like Saudi Arabia and Kuwait Recent furore over an Intragram post by a Kuwaiti blogger helped to highlight the plight of many so called “domestic servants” in the Middle East, who are treated no better than slaves. This blogger said: “How can you have a servant at home who keeps their own passport with them?” asked Alqattan in a video that has since been removed. “What’s worse is they have one day off every week, To take a day off every week, that’s four days a month,” she said. “Those are the days that she’ll be out. And we don’t know what she’ll be doing on those days, with her passport on her. “How can you have a servant at home who gets to keep their passport with them? If they ran away and went back to their country, who’ll refund me? Unfortunately those conditions are not uncommon in the Middle East, with migrant workers typically having their freedoms severely limited by their “employers”. This includes: Being locked in the house with no way to get out Having their passports taken from them Wages being withheld Not having access to any form of communication Only being allowed to go out of the house while being escorted by a member of their “employers” family Being subject to sexual and physical assault, without protection from local law enforcement Being forced to work 21-hour days Not being allowed to chose their own employer and being sold and passed around like slaves Not being allowed to leave the country with their “employers” permission Many of these abuses are made possible because of the Kafala System, which affects over 23 million workers, that is present in many rich Arab Gulf States in the Middle East, including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar. It is estimated that in Saudi Arabia, and other Gulf States, there are over a million slaves. Slave Labour Building the World Cup 2022 Facilities Qatar is due to host the upcoming 2022 Football / Soccer Fifa World Cup. There has been intense scruteny over the use of foreign and migrant workers in the building of these facilities, with many claiming that the industrial and construction workers are being housed in inhumane conditions, and that basic safety measure for the workers is being ignored. Even last month as France celebrated their win in the 2018 World Cup there are fresh reports coming out of Qatar of the horrific conditions that the migrant workers are subject to. Sharan Burrow is an advocate for workers rights in Qatar and recently gave an interview about the migrant worker situation in Qatar … Watch this video on YouTube. Despite pledging to make reforms to their migrant worker system in Qatar reports continue to come out about their failure to follow through. Slavery at Sea – South East Asia Slavery and Human Trafficking Just North of where I am here in Australia there is more accounts of slave labour in the fishing fleets of South East Asia. A few years ago Australia banned the import of seafood from that part of the world, and I, like many, complained about it because of the huge increases in the cost of the seafood. The reason for the ban was because of the reports of rampant slave labour in the crews of many of the fishing vessels in the area. If I had actually know then what I know now, I would have been all for the ban … Watch this video on YouTube. That audio was pulled from a larger report and story from the Guardian. I would highly recommend that you have a look at the link in the show notes at ywampodcast.com/108 where you can watch the full 15-minute mini-documentary, and read their full report. While that original story is from 2014, reports from even last year indicate that the practice of murder, slavery, and forced labour in the fishing industry is still prevalent… Child Soldiers Unfortunately child soldiers are still commonly used around the world in some state armies and many non-state militias. Most of these children were kidnapped from their homes, and their families were killed or enslaved. They are forced to be fighters, cooks, suicide bombers, human shields, messengers, spies, or for sexual purposes. There are estimated to be over 300,000 child soldiers in the world today. These children live in a state of shock and in desperate need of medical and psychological attention. As soldiers they suffer in many overwhelming ways: 90% of them would have been beaten 88% witness murder 86% are threatened with death 59% have been commanded to abduct other children 53% are commanded to commit murder 26% have been raped (source: here) Slave and Child Labour in Mining, Agriculture, and Industry Around the world many people, including children, are used for industrial, agriculture, and mining. Many of these people live in slave like conditions … Watch this video on YouTube. Where is there child and slave labour: Garment industry Mining – Gold, Diamonds, Rare Minerals Fruit, Tobacco, Coffee, and Coco Picking Household workers / servants What is YWAM Doing? We are as Christians called to bring justice to these people… … Learn to do good; seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow. Isaiah 1:17 and … What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. James 2:14-17 and … He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing. Deut. 10:18 Around the world YWAM is involved in many different ministries to victims of human trafficking and modern slavery: Freedom 61 YWAM Lavia YWAM Latvia runs their Freedom 61 ministry in Riga … Watch this video on YouTube. You can find out more about their ministry, including more about the Cafe, the Old Town Outreach, the Women’s Center, and how to get involved on their web-site, freedom61.org. YWAM Budapest, Hungary – Hope Dies Last Hope Dies Last is a justice ministry reaching out creatively to trafficked, marginalised, and exploited people. Their desire is to serve with excellence, creating media for under resourced organisations and addressing the root causes of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. Watch this video on YouTube.

YWAM Response to Lombok Earthquake In early August the Indonesian island of Lombok was devastated by an earthquake that left over 300-dead. Since the initial earthquake the island has been hit by over 450 aftershocks, that have continued to deliver damage to the communities. The magnitude 7.0 earthquake damaged or destroyed nearly 68,000 homes and has left over 270,000 people homeless or displaced. A team from UofN Bali is planning to go to one of the remote villages in Lombok with relief supplies. Some of the YWAM staff members know the people and the area around the village. Most of the homes have been destroyed and the people are sleeping in the rice fields. Their needs are for tarps, tents, blankets, rice, water, and other food items.

Polio Outbreak in PNG, Stopping Child Killing in the Amazon, Podcasting in Missions Course

YWAM is working to stop the killing of children in the Amazon, John Dawson invites us to YWAM Together in Thailand, YWAM Ships Australia responds to the Polio outbreak in Papua New Guinea, the Podcasting in Missions course will be launching in September, and more on this episode of the Youth With A Mission News Show Podcast … Thank you for downloading this, the 107th episode of the Youth With A Mission News Show Podcast, I’m your host, Bill Hutchison. You can contact us, subscribe to future episodes, leave comments, and find links to all the stories we talk about on the show notes for this podcast at ywampodcast.com/107 … Stories: Bringing Justice to the Children of Amazonian Tribes in Brazil In a recent article on the Foreign Policy Magazine web-site entitled “The Right to Kill – Should Brazil keep its Amazon tribes from taking the lives of their children?” (here). I’ll be honest, I was rather shocked that was even a question that needs to be asked! I wasn’t the only one to find that question shocking, obviously, and the people over at Get Religion wrote up a good article about it as well… Much of the article builds off of the work of missionaries and non-profits, and their work to eliminate infanticide among indigenous tribes in the Amazon. It includes reference to Hakani, who was a girl saved from being killed by her tribe, first by her brother, and then by YWAM Missionaries serving in Brazil … Watch this video on YouTube. As hard as it is to believe, there are some anthropologists and critics who believe that the tribes should be left alone, and let the children be killed as it is their “traditional custom and practice”, and any attempt to stop it is the equivalent of cultural colonialism. Others however rightly state that “Certain cultural practices here are incompatible with human rights, they need to be thwarted. There is no middle ground.”. Thankfully even among other Amazonian Indians there is a general feeling of relief that this issue is being addressed … Over 350 Indians, including chiefs from 7 tribes, gathered at the well-known Leonardo Outpost in Xingu Reservation for 2 days to discuss how indigenous families could be better educated about alternatives to infanticide. A follow-up meeting among health agents is presently being planned to strategize further. These are not efforts from outside groups imposing a course of action; these are the Indians themselves, taking responsibility for their own destinies and taking initiatives that will, in the end, benefit their tribal societies. The example that Hakani was to the tribe that originally tried to kill her has inspired others from that tribe to seek medical attention for their children, rather than resort to infanticide. More information about Hakani, and the Atini non profit that is still working for the rights of the indigenous childrenin Brazil on their web-site, atini.org.br. YWAM Soroti, Uganda On the last episode we shared with you about the Amecet Children’s Home, which is a part of YWAM Soroti, Uganda. In addition to the ministry to children YWAM Soroti also has a Discipleship Training School, Prison Ministry, Women’s Ministry and more … Watch this video on YouTube. I would encourage you to check out their web-site, ywamsoroti.com, to find out more about YWAM Soroti. YWAM Together 2018 John Dawson Invitation The YWAM Together gathering will be happening in Pattaya , Thailand from September 2 – September 7 … Watch this video on YouTube. YWAM Together 2018 in Pattaya, Thailand is set to be one of the largest and most diversely attended gatherings in the history of the YWAM global movement.

YWAM Sails to Help Polio Outbreak in PNG Papua New Guinea has seen an outbreak of Polio in the Morobe Province. They will help health officials conduct a vaccine drive after a recent Polio outbreak, which is the first outbreak in the country since 1996. The virus was first discovered in a young boy in the Lufa Mountain settlement in Lae city.

The Pacific Link was originally built as a Japanese fishing vessel, and then acquired by YWAM and been involved in many great ministry opportunities. While the M/V Pacific Link was being retired, the YWAM Liberty was being officially commissioned. The YWAM Liberty is YWAM’s first container ship. The ship provides a modular response to developmental needs, and the initiative will allow YWAM to increase the long-term engagement on remote islands. The YWAM Liberty’s first deployment includes containers configured with medical supplies and a woodworking shop. In follow up deployments they plan to build out classrooms, accommodations, IT labs, and more … Read more here.

The ‘Arab Gulf’ is an extremely diverse place that holds great opportunities for people from all over the world to hear the gospel and encounter God in a way that they never have before.

Training Podcasting in Missions Course So I’ve been continuing to work on the development of the the Podcasting in Missions Course that we will be starting in September, which is only a month away! I’ve been exploring more of the course that we will be working together on and these are some of the topics that will be covered: Planning your Podcast Developing quality and engaging content Choosing the right equipment and software Building a web-site for your podcast Publishing your Podcast Engaging with your audience more … At the end of the three-month online course you will have released a podcast in support of your ministry centre or your personal ministry. We will be connecting with each other weekly during the course so that we can help and support each other, and share ideas and resources whenever possible. During the course I will also be working on developing a new podcast about missions that I plan to launch near the end of the course. I’ve got a few ideas, but want to develop it with you so that we can walk through the steps together. There is room in the course for eight students, and you can do the course from your own location as the training will be online, and the group sessions will be over Google Hangouts. Check out ywampodast.com/course to sign up for more information about the course, and find out how you can get involved… School of International Relations & Diplomacy (SIRD) YWAM Harpenden running the SIRD from September to December of this year. The School of International Relations and Diplomacy (SIRD) aims to equip students to engage confidently and implicationally with the dome of international relations and diplomacy within the sphere of government. The goal is that students will be able to reflect God’s heart and kingdom values as they serve, wrestle, and engage with very real issues and dilemmas that dominate the complex global sphere. Out of the school they want to create and opportunity for students to engage in this particular field, to create an excitement, a confidence, an the ability to think implicationally though the dilemmas and hard questions that do not have easy answers, and to do so with integrity and grace. Some of the topics and issues that the 12-weeks school will be looking at include: Biblical view of the sphere of government, with a focus on international relations and diplomacy Understanding political justice, international law, and their consequences The rise and fall of the great empires found in the bible The importance of history and its impact The impact of Europ, the division of social, church, and government power Human Rights and the violations thereof Regional conflicts and terrorism The rhetoric of religious extremism The cause of conflict Information and disinformation strategies Current events and their cause and effect more … When I was in Switzerland they were running a similar course to this called the GIS, Government and International Studies. It was a facinating school, and out of it some of the participants were able to continue on to have internships with different politicians around the world, thus gaining an even deeper understanding of the process. As we look around the world it’s pretty obvious that there is a need for Godly influence in the international relations and diplomacy, and this course looks like a great way to begin to gain a greater understanding of how to get involved.

Finances and Faith, HIV Orphans Ministry, Sports in Missions

Lynn Green shares a message with us about Finances and Faith, we updated you about YWAM Costa Rica Bible Distribution, share about the amazing ministry of YWAM Amacet in Soroti, Uganda, we hear about using sports in missions, and more on this episode of the Youth With A Mission News Show Podcast … Thank you for downloading this, the 106th episode of the Youth With A Mission News Show Podcast, I’m your host, Bill Hutchison … You can contact us, subscribe to future episodes, leave comments, and find links to all the stories we talk about on the show notes for this podcast at ywampodcast.com/106 … Stories: Lynn Green – Finances and Faith We start today’s podcast with a message from Lynn Green about Finances and Faith … Watch this video on YouTube. You can see and read more of Lynn Green’s messages on his web-site, lynngreen.blog. YWAM Amacet – Soroti, Uganda YWAM Amacet have been working in Soroti, Uganda for almost 20-years. Their ministry is focused on serving three specific groups of children: HIV infected and affected children. New born babies, who lost their mother after the delivery. Children who need a safe place, they mostly come via the police. Their web-site if full of inspiring and heart breaking stories. I’ll share a few of them with you now, but I would also recommend that you check out their new web-site. In April Amecet purchased a block of land that they will be raising cattle on and growing maize and sweet potatoes. They plan to grow the crops for Amecet, and also to sell. Two of their cows are already pregnant and there is also the possibility to keep chickens for their eggs, or even to keep pigs. They have already built the fence and gate around the property and one of their neighbours cleared and ploughed the land for them. The Amecet staff went on a study tour to a local Cowfarm so as to learn more about raising and milking of the cattle. Some of the most heart breaking stories from their ministry are the deaths of children in their care, or who they have cared for. Many of these children are orphans, in very rough shape when brought to Amacet, or are infected with the HIV virus. Recently a lovely 13-year old girl named Betty, who was HIV+, passed away. This is a bit of how they wrote it on their web-site. In 2016 Betty was with us and left to go back home, very happy and very healthy. Betty was HIV+ and her father and stepmother would care for her at home. But this year she came back, brought by another organisation, which works in the village with HIV+ children. We tried, but I think that Betty was already too sick. And when she became more sick, Betty gave up, I think. When we came in Amecet today, the staff had already prayed with her (Betty). Betty was restless, a bit scared as well. Mary and I were just sitting with her, holding her hand, touching her, and telling her that it was okay, that we loved her, she became more peaceful. There was a moment that her room mate Harriet came in the room. At first a bit scared, but then she also stroked her head. It was so special, Harriet told her that God knows it all … We had both tears in our eyes. The moment of her last breath came fast, she was very peaceful and just stopped breathing… It was sad and also special moment, to be there together with Mary, with this precious girl, who had gone to her Father! You can read more stories like these and find out more about Amecet on their web-site at amecet-childrenshome.com. Podcasting in Missions Course In September we will be running a 3-month Podcasting in Missions Course. It will be 12-week of on-line training and group coaching. The idea of the course is that you can do it from your own location and at the end of the 12-weeks you will have launched a podcast for your personal ministry or your YWAM Centre. Podcasting since 2006 12-weeks online video training 12 x online group sessions Maximum of 8 x participants Find out more about the course, and sign up to receive updates, at ywampodcast.com/course. Bible’s for Costa Rica Update Last episode I shared with you about the Bible’s for Costa Rica ministry, including playing you some audio from their web-site. After recording and listening through the episode I realised that the data I had was from 2014, so I reached out to YWAM in Costa Rica for an update and I heard back from them with some really encouraging news … Right now YWAM Costa Rica have distributed over 210,000 Bibles in the whole country! They are diligently working at distributing more so that the goal of every home in the nation can have a Bible, but they have told me that they need help … Currently they are out of Bibles. It takes about 2-months for them to receive new Bibles, but have asked for your prayers for more finances so they can purchase more Bibles, that the Bibles would come as soon as possible. They have teams lined up, wanting to distribute Bibles, but they need the Bibles to distribute, as well as more teams to help with the distribution as the Bibles become available. I want to encourage you to pray for YWAM Costa Rica and their desire to distribute God’s Word to every home in the nation. You should also check out their web-site, ywampuertoviejo.org, and see how you might be able to help with the distribution or the purchase of the Bibles.

The ship itself is being fitted out for medical relief work, and already YWAM locations around the world are working at building out containers to meet various needs in Papua New Guinea.

Dave Jackson has been podcasting since April 2005, and has a wealth of information that he has built up into a fantastic training program that there is no way I could match in quality or in expertise… The School of Podcasting is a paid membership site, and Dave has agreed to give us a special discount just for YWAM. The idea is that we will all register as a group and work through the different courses / topics together to produce and launch a podcast. The Podcast can be for your personal ministry, for your location’s ministry, or for any of the seven sphere’s of society that God calls us into. In addition to The School of Podcasting content, we will also meet online as a group to encourage one another, discuss our progress, work through our challenges, and help each other out. I’m also working to get other input from some of our YWAM elders and leaders about communication and missions.
