Summer Report

Tom, Elias, Ohokulani, Timothy

It has been a very busy few months since our last newsletter. In the Spring quarter, we graduated nearly 40 DTS students who had recently returned from doing ministry in Thailand, Nepal, Brunei, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Fiji Islands, and a very large Asian country. The 4 outreach teams were led by 8 of our YWAM staff.

It was so inspiring to hear their testimonies about what God did in their lives and also what God did through them in reaching out to the people in the outreach locations. These students displayed a deeply rooted passion for Jesus, for the Truth of God’s Word, and for reaching the lost.

Some of the things that stuck out to me during the debriefing times was that the students had a great balance of being rooted in the Word and being led by the Holy Spirit; they chose to serve others above themselves; most of them returned to Maui with a long- term plan for serving the Lord. At the end of the week, I found myself thinking, “if this is a sample of what God is doing in this generation, then we can expect great things in the future!”

There was a high percentage of the students who expressed a desire to come back and join our staff or to attend our School of Biblical Foundations & Missions. This fall, the SBFM has 17 students and the DTS has about 25. Both schools begin on September 13.

The week of September 7-12th, Tom will be in Kona, HI for YWAM’s University of the Nations Strategy Conference. As such, it looks like it will be a busy season.

Thank you for your prayers. The Lord is definitely blessing us and the ministry here is bearing much fruit.
