Nepal still has many people groups who are completely unreached, many of which are located in areas that are hard to get to via traditional transportation. Many areas don’t have any Christians in its villages (and if there are, they usually stay hidden).
Our heart is to see not just evangelism but also discipleship through church planting, long-term discipleship, and training in mercy ministries.
God's heart for the nation: unique opportunity to NT approach to ministering the Gospel (trek & hike)
How We Serve There
Our first outreach to Nepal was in 2015. In this nation, we have a unique opportunity to take a New Testament approach to ministering the Gospel by trekking and hiking to villages where Christ risen has never been proclaimed.
Our ministry there includes trekking into high-Himalayan villages to preach the Gospel and connecting with local church planters. We also partner with Five14 Adventures to build tea houses that help villages create income.
There's an immense hunger in the Thai people to know Jesus. Today, there are still 5 people groups that are completely unreached by the Gospel.
During our first outreach there in 2014, we worked with Bermese refugees on the border between Burma and Thailand & in the red light districts doing evangelism, training, and mercy ministry.
We believe that God's heart for the nation of Thailand is to see families restored, the exploitation of women & children stopped, and the local church discipled & strengthened.
How We Serve There
From remote villages, where we support local village churches in discipleship, to the red-light districts, where we work with bar girls by building friendships over a long period of time, Thailand is an incredibly challenging yet rewarding nation to serve in. We've even seen a bar-girl come out of prostitution, get saved, and go do her DTS!
We love being in this nation where we have access to immediate ministry and can easily travel the country, ride elephants through the jungle, go bamboo rafting down the rivers, and plunge into the cool water at the foot of great waterfalls!
current location: Greece
Why do we serve in the refugee crisis?
Our first refugee outreach was Spring 2016. Throughout the Bible, we see God's heart for those displaced from their homeland. In the past few years, hundreds of thousands of people from nations completely closed to the Gospel have fled war and corruption to Europe, where they are free to hear the Gospel message.
How We Serve Refugees
In Greece, we have worked in refugee camps, served in day centers, distributed provisions, evangelized and discipled.
The most beautiful thing about serving refugees is that they come to Europe seeking hope, freedom, and healing, all of which are only truly found in Jesus -- and we get to share this message with them!
In January 2017, we even gathered with 22 other YWAM bases to do a mass-outreach to the refugees in Athens. In the months to come, we are sending out a YWAM team long-term to northern Greece!
