Conflict or Harmony?

Conflict or Harmony?

Conflict or Harmony? Throughout the Bible, we learn that God has many different names. Often we look at each one individually, but what if we were to look at them together as a whole? What if the seemingly opposing attributes of God were not in conflict, but were actually in harmony with each other? It would…

Forgiveness: An Open Door for Jesus to Heal

Outreach Testimony! On my team’s first day of outreach in Vanuatu, we heard about something called the healing waters, which were an area of water blessed by the Holy Spirit. People from every island of Vanuatu were coming with the expectation of being healed. When we arrived, we found over 250 people sitting in pools…

Healing in More Ways Than One

Healing in More Ways Than One

Outreach Testimony On my fifth week of outreach in Vanuatu, my team and I had the opportunity of running a medical clinic alongside one of the other medical teams and the ship’s doctor. The island we went to, Hiu, is the most northern island of the country and was hit extremely hard by the hurricane…

God’s Perfect Timing

God’s Perfect Timing

Outreach Testimony During the last week of ministry in Vanuatu, we decided to do a treasure hunt. We prayed about what or who God wanted us to pray for and I really felt like he was saying there would be a pregnant woman somewhere along the way. I kept pressing in and asking Him where…

The Essence of Prayer

The Essence of Prayer

We all know prayer is important to a healthy Christian life, but how often do we find that prayer is probably the one thing we have the hardest time consistently engaging? For me, prayer was one thing I did when I ate and right before I went to bed. Religiously I would pray at these…

The journey is more important than the end result

The journey is more important than the end result

I found myself joining staff here at YWAM Marine Reach because I felt God calling me to a life surrendered to Him and doing His work among the nations. My time on DTS was truly radical – it felt like God opened my eyes to what a life living in intimacy with Him actually looked…

The Tabernacle; a Place or a People?

The Tabernacle; a Place or a People?

“The LORD would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend. Then Moses would return to the camp, but his young aide Joshua son of Nun did not leave the tent.” Exodus 33:11. What would it have been like to talk with God face to face? The Bible leaves out the…

The Art of Godly Stillness

The Art of Godly Stillness

It seems like no matter where I go or what I do, there’s always an expectation. Do something. Anything. It doesn’t really matter what, but whatever you do, don’t remain still, lest you be caught lazy or weak. Have you ever noticed how awkwardly we view silence in a conversation. And wandering in the quiet, alone,…

The Power of a Testimony

The Power of a Testimony

Our stories are the secrets of who we are. They are beneath the normal level of conversation, buried deep within ourselves. In the first week of DTS, we are encouraged to share our life stories – the joys, pains, deep wounds, nothing left out. Not in smaller groups, not in gender mixed groups but everyone…

Real Prayers get Real Answers

Real Prayers get Real Answers

Real prayers get real answers. God always answers our prayers. Whether we realise it or not He hears them and acts on them, however, often His answer is something we are not always expecting. For quite sometime now my prayers have been prayers of asking God to take me deeper into his heart, to grow…

Prepare The Way

During a recent outreach, Medical Compassion team 2 had the opportunity to go to the Island of Espiritu Santo in Vanuatu. The name of the island translated from Spanish is Holy Spirit. When Captain Pedro Fernandes de Quiros discovered Vanuatu and landed on the island, he claimed it in the name of Jesus Christ. The…

Spoken Truth

Spoken Truth

This spoken truth is a revelation a recent student had on his DTS. In Romans 8:5, it says “For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit” One of the…

Endless Hunger – A Poem

Endless Hunger – A Poem

My weary, dry bones cry out for your covering, For the life they in their own power could never birth. Flesh on my bones, Breath in my lungs, My exhale a cry for more, My inhale a suffocated man’s freedom. Wrap yourself around me as a covering, As a tunic pure as snow for me,…

Consumed by the Flames of Glory, Himself

In photo: Shmuel Stadtlander The afternoon sun drenches Gideon’s Valley in cloths of light and gentle shade; there are precious days when the sun sits just above the waterfall and reveal near-whimsical waters that shimmer like a crystalline kaleidoscope. Walking along the shin-high waters upon a algae-smoothed rock shelf, all at the top of the waterfall,…
