UofN Poipet – God’s Reminder

Jaime Gomez Stories

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 she didn’t understand how to worship God outside of normal Buddhists traditions and had gone back to her formal Buddhist background. She thought she had …

Is Fundraising Really Necessary?

Jaime Gomez Stories

Fundraising? No. I’m not gonna do it. I’ll just hope and pray that people will catch on to what I’m doing. I mean I’ll update facebook, send out blogs, maybe write a newsletter, and then see what happens.  I know people are interested in what I’m doing so they’ll make a move. They’ll contact me. Why do I need to contact them directly? If they want to be a part of this, they’ll make an effort and say something, do something. I’ll just wait for …

OUR GOD HEALS!

Jaime Gomez News, Stories

We were in Lae, Papua New Guinea when God showed up in miraculous ways. Everywhere we went, we witnessed the Holy Spirit bringing a mass of healings! We had opportunities to preach and pray in prisons, open airs, the masses in the marketplace, and patients in the hospital. In the prison, Jeff and Trice, our volunteer staff and student, began praying for healing after preaching in their section of the prison. Men came forward with back pains, headaches, and more. Each man who received prayer was …

Jenny is a Fighter

Jaime Gomez News

Jenny, an eight-month-old baby girl, struggled to breath. Her mother had brought her to the clinic and her raspy cry was heart-breakingto hear. Jenny had severe pneumonia; the same condition that took baby Isaiah’s life just four months prior. Isaiah had come to one of our clinics a little worse than Jenny. Sadly, he had succumbed to this common disease. The Papua New Guinea team pediatrician moved quickly to rehydrate Jenny and start her on antibiotics. The health center, however, didn’t have any oxygen. With …

Bibles and Healings – Brazil Outreach Team Stories

Jaime Gomez Stories

One of our outreach teams for our July Discipleship Training School course went to Brazil for two months. Here are a few of the stories that came out of their time in South America! Our outreach focused on mainly building relationships with villagers by doing house visits. Although almost all the houses we visited believed in Jesus, a good majority did not know how to study his Word effectively. So our focus during the house visits was not only to get to know the people …

The Blind See and the Deaf Hear

Jaime Gomez Stories

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 room of the local hospital, a place we’d been a number of times before in the past four weeks. It was one of the nicer …

A Lesson in Health Care Evangelism

Jaime Gomez Stories

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. But on a trip to Papua New Guinea in 2016, I witnessed a healthy marriage of “good works” and the “good news.” I saw that …
