Outreach Phase: The Sea

Outreach Phase: The Sea

Outreach will begin in Panama starting in the port city called Colon. From Colon you'll set sail on YWAM's ship, Pacific Hope, to islands, coast lines, and villages along the many rivers in Central America. 

You'll have the opportunity to serve alongside medical professionals  performing cataract surgeries, and assist doctors as they venture off into the villages to set up clinics. Your team will have an opportunity to share the gospel in these remote villages and perform acts of mercy.

Student Testimonials

ywam student
From breaking free from lies & learning how to walk in my true identity, to sharing the gift of freedom with refugees in Greece - DTS has shown me that a life spent running after Jesus is far from ordinary. I have realized the raw joy, pure truth, & nation-changing power of the simple Gospel. God has shown me time and time again about what it means to be a co-heir of His Kingdom. DTS was a life changing experience of spiritual, mental, & emotional growth.
I have to say that moments from my DTS Outreach were some of the most beautiful times of my life. It’s strange to think that it took a massive trip across ten time zones to work with refugees before I truly realized the value of the Church as Christ’s bride, before I realized that here, in the local body of Christ, lies his chosen method for loving outcasts into his Kingdom. DTS gave me the community, the experiences, and the theological space to have this realization; this beautiful, cosmic collision of my convictions with the realities of a broken people and a world in exile
— JOE S. (OHIO, U.S.A.)
DTS opened up my eyes to the importance of the Gospel. It ignited a flame and passion to reach the lost and hopeless, and to show Jesus’ love and truth to those who may not even realize their thirst for a living God. It has taught me to pursue that which is eternal, because nothing else lasts.
