Dedication of the last 4 cabins of our Mediterranean Village - cabins for housing on our YWAM Orlando Campus

Just this past month, we also dedicated 5 buildings: 4 dormitory cabins and a laundry facility with fully-functioning laundry machines! Of the 26 buildings already on our campus, we have renovated 23 of them, meaning we only have 3 buildings left to renovate! We are amazed at how far this campus has come, and we are so thankful for His provision of finances and laborers to make this happen!

We believe these buildings were completed just in time since, on September 26th, we will start our fall quarter of training at YWAM Orlando, which is often our busiest quarter of the year! Darla and I will lead our Basic Leadership School (BLS). Please take the next 45 seconds, and pray that God will send laborers into His harvest field in the form of a record number of students to us this quarter. These students will not only receive life-changing teaching, but they will then be launched into the world as a dynamic missions force. 

These buildings were uninhabitable

Darla and I participated in YWAM Together, an international gathering of over 2000 YWAMers

Darla and I just returned from a very fruitful international gathering of our YWAM leaders and staff, and I had the privilege of helping to lead portions of the event. We had over 2000 YWAMers from around the world!
I helped to lead our breakout sessions for the Church, and one exciting outcome was that, as a group, we committed to engage 125 people groups that currently have no Bible, church, or missionaries. In addition, we discussed strategies to take the Bible to places and countries that have never had the Bible available to them. What a wonderful privilege!
