UofN Poipet – God’s Reminder

Ngan, a 91-year-old grandmother, accepted Jesus the first time our team met her. They had been evangelizing in a village and ended up at her family’s house. After sharing the Gospel and stories about Jesus, Ngan told them she believed in Jesus.  A month later, our team visited Ngan. She told them she was thinking about Jesus but confessed that …

Is Fundraising Really Necessary?

Fundraising? No. I’m not gonna do it. I’ll just hope and pray that people will catch on to what I’m doing.

The Blind See and the Deaf Hear

When our outreach team left YWAM Ships Kona’s vessel, the m/v Pacific Link for another day of ministry, it was already hot. That’s pretty normal for October in Kimbe, Papua New Guinea. Even the local people sometimes complained about the temperatures. At first, our plans for the day had been tentative but we eventually decided that we’d visit the waiting …

A Lesson in Health Care Evangelism

For years, I was leery of mixing humanitarianism with Gospel ministry. The task of joining the two successfully has — historically — proved difficult. Anyone who has studied Christian missions knows that many organizations that started as Gospel-centered ended up scaling back their evangelism in an effort to focus on meeting people’s “practical” needs such as health care and education. …
