11 Jun 50th Anniversary of Youth With A Mission, My 3 Years with Them.
This year is the 50th anniversary of Youth With A Mission, YWAM, they have sent over 2 million into the mission field in those 50 years. And I thank God to have been one of them, I spent 3 years with YWAM as a missionary. They where 3 of the best years in my life so far, I spent my time working to rescue teens living on the streets, mostly girls under the age of 18 whom where victims of human trafficking. We worked the streets in an area estimated to have around 30,000 to 40,000 teens living on the streets, all of them in prostitution, and drugs as well. The youngest rescued by our ministry was 11, yes a 11 year old girl living on the streets selling her self to survive. They were trying years, it was a hard ministry to do most of the time, the things I witnessed, man at his worst, but also was a time of great joy, so many teens where rescue, the community life I had with my fellow YWAM’s was true church in action, the true Christian life seen the books of Acts.
On November 28, 2010, yammers and friends of YWAM from around the globe will converge on the UofN Kona campus for a six day celebration of YWAM’s 50th Jubilee. I will share some of my stories and experiences in YWAM between now and the end of the year.
