Rank #1: Finding Your Ministry – Loren Cunningham.
Loren Cunningham challenges us with a teaching about Finding our Ministry on this episode of the Youth With A Mission Teaching Podcast. Loren Cunningham is the founder of Youth With A Mission (YWAM) and the co-founder of the University of the Nations (U of N). He is also a leader at the YWAM, U of N Campus in Hawaii, and a member of the YWAM International Eldership. In this teaching Loren asks us the question, “Is it that God has never called us, or have we never heard His call?”. John 1:6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. Loren Cunningham challenges us to replace John with our own name. “You are either a missionary, or a missions field. You are either a part of God’s problem, or a part of His answer.” – Loren Cunningham “It’s not that you have never been called, it’s that you have never heard the call …” Loren Cunningham is the author of a number of books including the book Daring to Live on the Edge: The Adventure of Faith and Finances, which expands upon this teaching about Finances: Is That Really You God? Hearing the Voice of God Daring to Live on the Edge: The Adventure of Faith and Finances Making Jesus Lord: The Dynamic Power of Laying Down Your Rights (formerly titled Winning God’s Way) Why Not Women? A Fresh Look at Scripture on Women in Missions, Ministry, and Leadership (co-written with David Hamilton) The Book that Transforms Nations: The Power of the Bible to Change Any Country

News about Youth With A Mission and Christian Missions
Rank #1: How the Bible Transforms Nations, South Sudan Refugee Camp Update, Helping the Disabled in Latvia, New UofN Catalog.
In this episode of the Youth With A Mission News Podcast we will hear from Loren Cunningham about how the Bible transforms nations, we will talk about how you can help the South Sudan Refugees, see what kind of work is happening to rebuild in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan, find out about a ministry to disabled in Latvia, and more … Stories: How the Bible Transforms Nations – Loren Cunningham Watch this video on YouTube. South Sudan Refugee Camp Update Since the start of the Crisis in South Sudan, YWAM has been involved in South Sudan and in Uganda with the refugees and those affected by the fighting. Watch this video on YouTube. In one of the refugee camps that YWAM has visited there are over 11,000 refugees there from South Sudan. There is only one hand pump for all those people, only 9 pit toilets, and just five nurses… (more) // Post by YWAM South Sudan. Rebuilding After the Typhoon From the beginning of the rebuilding process in the Philippines YWAM has been in the midst of it. 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. YWAM in the Philippines is feeling that God is leading them not just to the initial rebuilding effort, but to the long-term rebuilding of communities, both practically and spiritually. Typhoon Haiyan not only knocked down many physical walls, but also seems to have knocked down the “spiritual” walls of the people. There are many opportunities for YWAM teams to go into the Philippines to help with the rebuilding and relief work. The focus areas for the teams are Taclogan, Ormoc, Bogo and Bantayan Island, and Northern Panay Island. You can find out more about the opportunities to help the relief work in the Philippines on the www.ywam.org. Gleanings for the Hungry Container to the Philippines We sent a container out another container today to the Philippines! We are excited to get more soup mix and other food out to them. May God bless the people who receive this food. Find out more about Gleanings for the Hungry and their ministry on their web-site, gleanings.org, or on their Facebook Page. Wings for Wheels – YWAM Riga, Latvia Wings for Wheels is ministry in Riga, Latvia for people with mobile disabilities from age 18-60, who are living in their homes, often ‘forgotten’ by Latvian society and not getting enough attention from Christian society either. Wings for Wheels goal is to challenge people with mobile disabilities to come out from their passive lifestyle and to show their abilities to improve their quality of life, which can help them integrate into society. At the same time YWAM is trying to get the attention of Christian society for this field, and to challenge them to reach out for these ‘hidden’ people group. You can find out more about this ministry at www.ywamriga.org. New University of the Nations Catalogue I am pleased to announce the posting of the brand-new University of the Nations Catalogue 2014-2016. This edition is the first that will not be printed, although the .pdf’s have been designed so that anyone needing a hard copy can print it themselves. The costs of shipping and customs go up regularly, and the funds we will economise will go into development of our new Records systems. The catalogue job has gotten bigger and more complex because of the growth of our University, in all categories. Whereas before we counted 300 schools and seminars, now we have double that, about 300 each of schools and seminars for a total of 600. UofN courses are now in 160 countries, up from 120 which is a 33% increase; we are now in 550 locations, up from 369 in 2008, which is a 49% increase; and we had approximately 16,500 students in 2010, which is a 12% increase from 2008. Of these students, 11,300 were DTS students and approximately 5200 were post-DTS students, that’s just under a third of the total. In our schools we used 97 different languages daily. We count it a privilege to be able to serve our thousands of students as they go into the nations of the world.

A raw and real discipleship community, fully engaging with God, truth and identity, getting trained to go out to do great exploits for God in the nations. We want to know God in a way that radically impacts our lives in every direction. We are all on the journey of transformation and becoming who God made us to be. We want to be forever ruined for an ordinary life. We are shaped by four values of engagement ... the reality of who God is, the revelation of who we are, the value and joy of life-together community and sharing God's heart for the nations.

Rank #1: Praying For YWAM Foundational Values (16 – 18).
Join YWAMers around the globe in praying and hearing from God. He is inviting you! YWAM Foundational Values 16 – 18Photo credits (left to right): YWAM Nuremberg, YWAM Asheville, YWAM Perth Africa DTS In January of last year we began praying for YWAM’s Foundational Values, three at a time, once per quarter. This issue of The Invitation marks the completion of this prayer campaign. Please join us in praying for ourselves and for the whole YWAM family to live out these final three values: to depend on God, to practice hospitality, and to communicate with integrity. According to Rita Pretorius, who provided input to The Invitation, “Be Hospitable” was one of YWAM’s first values, along with our motto “To know God and to make Him known.” Rita believes that “hospitality helped us, as YWAM, to stay a loving community and not to become an institution. Being hospitable is part of our DNA because it is not about programs or a method, it is all about relationships.” Terry Sherman also noted that the biblical examples of Value 16, Practice Dependence on God, “are about God connecting people to make mutual provision – it’s never one-sided, but both parties are blessed in some way. It’s all about partnership and interdependence.” And as we take a look at our final value, Communicate With Integrity, YWAM has teams that model and teach on this value in a relational way. Some of these groups are the College of Communication at YWAM’s University of the Nations, Create International, and Circle 18. Here is the full text of these three values: Value 16: Practice dependence on God – YWAM is called to practice a life of dependence upon God for financial provision. For individuals and YWAM corporately this comes primarily through His people. As God has been generous toward us, so we desire to be generous. YWAMers give themselves, their time and talents to God through the mission with no expectation of remuneration (Gen 22:12-14; Exo 36:2-7; Num 18:25-29; Mal 3:8-12; Mat 6:25-33; Luk 19:8-9; 2Co 8:1-9:15; Php 4:10-20; Tit 3:14; 3Jo 5-8). Value 17: Practice hospitality – YWAM affirms the ministry of hospitality as an expression of God’s character and the value of people. We believe it is important to open our hearts, homes, campuses and ministry centers to serve and honor one another, our guests and the poor and needy, not as acts of social protocol, but as expressions of generosity (Gen 18:1-8; 2Sa 9:1-11; Psa 68:5-6; Pro 22:9; Isa 58:7; Mat 25:31 46; Acts 28:7-8; Rom 12:13; Heb 13:1-3; 1Pe 4:9). Value 18: Communicate with integrity – YWAM affirms that everything exists because God communicates. Therefore, YWAM is committed to truthful, accurate, timely and relevant communication. We believe good communication is essential for strong relationships, healthy families and communities, and effective ministry (Gen 1:3-5; Num 23:19; Pro 10:19; Pro 25:9-14; Zec 8:16-17; Mat 5:33-37; Luke 4:16-22; Joh 1:1 5; Col 4:6; Jam 3:1-18). Please join with The Invitation during the month of April to pray with us about these three values. You are particularly invited to pray during our prayer day, April 11. If you only have a few moments to pray we would ask you to pray for yourself and our YWAM family that God would help us live out dependence on God, hospitality, and good communication. As you pray and contemplate these foundational values, we would love to receive stories from you regarding how these values have shaped your ministry or your life. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Prepare to Pray: As you gather to pray, have a conversation about the different ways of greeting people you have encountered in different cultures. In what ways have different greetings made you feel welcome, or perhaps not welcome? Perhaps you have experienced moments of confusion, when you were not sure whether to hug or not hug? Or you thought two kisses were normal, when really it was three? How did these moments of confusion make you feel? What are some of the ways you have gone out of your way to greet those from other cultures in ways that would make them feel welcome and at ease? Henri Nouwen reminds us that every good relationship between two or more people, whether it is friendship, marriage, or community, creates space where strangers can enter and become friends. Good communication and good relationships are both hospitable in nature. When we enter into a home and feel warmly welcomed, we will soon realize that the love among those who live in that home is what makes possible the welcome that is communicated. Discuss together, what would your communication look like or sound like as an expression of love between you and God, offered to others? What would your behavior be like? How might you approach your prayer and funding partners differently as you bear in mind the values of hospitality and honoring communication? Matthew 22:37-39 English Standard Version (ESV) 37 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. YWAM Foundational Value #16 – Practice Dependence on GodPhoto credit: Terry Sherman Pray for YWAM Foundational Values 16 – 18: Praise God for giving wisdom to our leaders regarding our foundational values and ask Him how you can model and teach our values more effectively. Practice Dependence on God: “You are workers, worthy to be supported” (Matthew 10:10 and Luke 10:7). Jesus so clearly taught the disciples their identity involved doing real work which was worthy to be supported through housing and food. Pray for biblical understanding to spread which will give confidence to gospel spreaders to do their legitimate work and have freedom to invite partnership. Pray that churches, pastors and elders will gain understanding of their role as “senders” of gospel spreaders; of their role in the Great Commission. Practice Hospitality: Pray for a greater revelation of hospitality in our mission and how it effects our ministries. Pray for a deeper understanding for God’s heart for people. Hospitality is not a method – it is a relationship with God first and then people. According to Christine D Pohl, “Faithful hospitality usually involves laying our lives down in little pieces, in small acts of sacrificial love and service. Part of the mystery is that while such concrete acts of love are costly, they nourish and heal both giver and recipient.” Pray for an outpouring of honor, beauty and generosity in our YWAM communities. Pray for all leaders to understand this value and put it into practice in their own lives and model it to the communities. Pray for a fresh wave of hospitality hosts and hostesses in our mission. Hospitality is the golden thread that connects us as YWAMers internationally, and also the hearts of the local communities where we serve. Rita Pretorius Pray for revelation and understanding on how we can best walk in hospitality as a lifestyle. Pray for a fresh understanding to realize that hospitality is not just practical, but indeed very spiritual. Pray that God would show us ways to welcome the broken and the stranger into our homes and communities. Pray that we would create welcome places for ourselves, but also safe spaces where we welcome our guests, staff and trainees. Pray for school leaders to embrace this value and practice it during the duration of the training program and not only during the initial welcome. Thank the Lord for all the hosts and hostesses who have worked in YWAM’s hospitality departments over the years. This is sometimes a thankless job. Ask the Lord to enlarge our hearts … to receive all people. He is faithful and will do that if we ask. YWAM Foundational Value 17 – Practice Hospitality (left to right): Hospitality Cookie, A Father’s Table For Us to Enjoy; Stranger DinnerPhoto credits (left to right): Rita Pretorius, Rita Pretorius, YWAM Nuremberg Communicate With Integrity: Pray for YWAMers to be good communicators. Pray for clear communication within YWAM. Pray for the launch of YWAM TV. Pray for Two-Thirds World YWAMers to know how to use gadgets of communication that will improve their ministry. Pray for networking of communicators. Some of them work alone and need a team. Pray for Lynn Green, who provides eldership oversight for YWAM’s global communication. Pray also for Circle 18, the team that works with Lynn on communication projects. Pray for YWAM’s communication ministries: that they would inspire many people to get involved in serving God’s purposes for the world; that they would help YWAM grow in fruitfulness; and that they would encourage an environment of spiritual vitality in YWAM. Pray for Create International (createinternational.com), and their ministry of producing evangelistic audio visuals for unreached people groups. Pray for the University of the Nations’ College of Communication, that they would train people well to communicate with integrity. Pray for The Invitation, which is one of YWAM’s communication ministries. Pray for the translators and editors. Pray for YWAMers to continue to submit prayer ideas. And pray for prayer coordinators in YWAM to have the leading of God as they invite people to pray.

Spread the Kairos course into churches so they get revelation/understanding on their role as “senders”: http://www.kairoscourse.org/ YWAM Foundational Value #16 – Practice Dependence on GodPhoto credit: Terry Sherman Practice Hospitality: Romans 12:13 says “Practice hospitality.” If we don’t practice it, it is difficult to pull off at the moment when we need it. Be intentional to practice hospitality. Begin with your own family. Organize a workshop at your location that addresses: “How can we as YWAMers practice hospitality to the marginalized and the communities around us?” Incorporate the results into your ministries and practices and share with others within YWAM. Attend or host hospitality training seminars. There is one in Harpenden, England in May: https://ywamharpenden.org/hospitality-seminar/ Take time to study God’s word on Hospitality: Genesis 18:1-10; 1 Peter 4:9-10; Hebrews 6:10, 10:24, 13:2; Isaiah 58:7-9; Acts 2:44-46; Mark 9:41, 10:43-45; Philippians 2:3-4; Galatians 6:9-10; 1 Timothy 3:2; Proverbs 3:27, 11:25; Romans 15:32, 16:2, 12:9-13, 12:16, 12:20; Luke 14:12-13; John 13:14-16; Matthew 25:37-40; Colossians 4:5.

Rank #2: The Mobilization of Two-Thirds-World Senders.
Thank you for joining us this month as we take up “The Invitation” and join together with thousands of YWAMers from around the world as we pray and hear from God about the Mobilization of Two-Thirds-World Senders … Brazilian missionary to Tanzania.Photo credit: YWAM Frontier Mission Before he left for India, missionary William Carey told his friend, “I will go down…if you hold the rope.” Like the person holding the rope for a mountain climber, the sender of missionaries plays a vital role in helping their friends succeed. Please join the YWAM family in prayer this month for those people who hold the rope for missionaries, who serve as senders. In particular, please pray for senders from the Two-Thirds World. Last month YWAM’s monthly prayer day, called The Invitation, focused on the encouraging realities of how God is transforming the missions field into the mission force! But there is another side to this unfolding story. In many locations both in and out of YWAM there are hundreds if not thousands of amazing men and women from the Two-Thirds-World who are called to go the lost. They have proven character, they have a clear call, often they have been equipped for cross-cultural work, but what they lack are senders. Senders are any believers intentionally focused on sending and supporting missionaries. In his book Serving as Senders, Neil Pirolo identifies six different ways we can serve as senders: moral support, logistic support, financial support, prayer support, communication support, and re-entry support. The apostle Paul highlighted the crucial role of senders in his letter to the church in Rome. He wrote, “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!’” (Romans 10:14-15, NIV). Let us join together to pray for both more senders and more leaders (mobilizers) who will focus not only on launching the Two-Thirds-World missionaries but also on equipping the Two-Thirds-World senders. More believers serving as senders in the Two-Thirds-World will release another wave of amazing missionaries from the Two-Thirds-World. Please join with The Invitation during the month of March to pray with us about sending Two-Thirds-World missionaries. You are particularly invited to pray during our prayer day, March 14. If you only have a few moments to pray we ask you to pray for a Two-Thirds-World sending country that God puts on your heart (for example, Brazil, Nigeria, South Korea, or India). We would love to receive stories from you regarding how God touched your heart through this prayer. You can email us at email@example.com. Prepare to Pray: Watch this video from Bevin Ginder that explains why praying for senders from the Two-Thirds-World is so important at this time: https://globalcastresources.com/2018/11/07/new-missionaries-from-new-sending-nations/ “I will go down… if you will hold the rope.” – William Cary to his friend Andrew Fuller before departing to India. Image from Bevin Ginder Pray for Two-Thirds-World Senders: The mobilization of many more Two-Thirds-World believers willing to serve as senders. More leaders who will focus on equipping both those called to go and those called to send. These leaders could be pastors, business people, church leaders, community leaders, or family leaders. A renewed emphasis on maintaining and developing good relationships and partnerships with local church leaders. A change of identity in Two-Thirds-World churches from mission field to mission force. Pray for the discipleship process. Missions mobilization includes the long-term efforts necessary to shift how both individuals and whole communities perceive themselves, the Bible, and God’s mission. The continued development of relevant models for funding missions from the Two-Thirds-World. There is still a huge need for wisdom on models for funding missions that do not stunt the growing capacity and responsibility of the local believers send out and sustain their own workers. More missions mobilization resources developed by and for national leaders, mobilizers and trainers. More principle-based training for leaders with a heart for missions. The integration of topics such as Biblical basis of missions in the training of pastors in new sending countries. Specifically pray for African missionaries and people to send them. In response to last-month’s prayer focus, Sunday Adewumi, a believer from Nigeria, wrote us and asked us to pray for the African mission movement: “I did my YWAM Discipleship Training School in South Africa in 2016, against all odds, in terms of immigration issues. I did my outreach with a group of five in South Africa. Thereafter, I applied to join staff but I was not accepted due to immigration issues. I love missions and my heart is in it. I still do it here in Nigeria. I’ve discovered that some missionaries from some Africa countries and less developed countries are confronted with immigration issues, finances, racial discrimination, and other issues. I hope we can pray for African missionaries on the points mentioned above. Image credit: YWAM Frontier Mission Take Action Learn: Read an article or book or watch a video from the resources below. Pray: Commit to pray for more Two-Thirds-World leaders focused on equipping both “goers” and “senders.” Give: Begin supporting a Two-Thirds-World missionary! Create: Ask God for next steps in developing more missions training and mobilization resources in the language of your region.

Totally Dependent on God for FinancesPhoto credit: YWAM Frontier Missions How We Prayed: February 2019 – Two-Thirds-World Missionaries Several people showed enthusiasm on Facebook to pray for this topic: “Praying with great expectation!” and “Agreeing in prayer. (Psalm 67)” One on Facebook asked: “Any mobilization for 2020 Olympics in Japan?” International House of Prayer featured praying for Mobilization of Two-Thirds-World (Majority World) Missionaries in the “Prayer for YWAM” guide they distributed to their prayer partners. We received an email from a woman in Nigeria asking God to grant the Two-Thirds-World missionaries safety and protection in all their lives and remove humiliation, killings, and maltreatment.
