A MANDATE FROM GOD
Ezekiel 3:4&10-11 “Son of man, go to the house of Israel and speak with my words to them"...10 Moreover, he said to me, “Son of man, all my words that I shall speak to you receive in your heart, and hear with your ears. 11 And go to the exiles, to your people, and speak to them and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God,’ whether they hear or refuse to hear.”
About YWAM Ships Kona
As a Community Development worker I am passionate about people taking their skills and using them in the field. Our schools, like out base, have a focus on reaching the Isolated people of the pacific. Our schools currently have a major focus on the discipleship of Papua New Guinea.
I am personally passionate about reaching isolated or hard places for the Lord. Whether this is hard places like Youth in Remote areas of Australia, The Australian Outback or the people of Oceania and the South Pacific. I know that many of places are only accessible by ships. I am driven by God and his challenge to make DISCIPLES of ALL nations, especially those hard to reach places. I am passionate about bringing hope, compassion, GODS's truth and transformation to people who think life is hopeless and seeing how the truth of the Bible can transform there world. I believe this is why God has called me to serve with YWAM and for this season at YWAM SHIPS Kona.
I personally have seen the impact of larger ships but I have recently learnt about the role of smaller vessels and how such vessels can be effective in ministry. Not only is wind power free, but sailing vessels can reach shallow harbours and small islands very effectively. Sailing is also a great way to connect with young people, or anyone really and train them in a skill. I am excited to see how God will use this new skill in my life not only for enjoyment but in ministry.
This is actually a picture of my school of Sailing, Navigation and Seamanship approaching Maui and on long sail between the Hawaiian Islands about the S/Y Makana.
