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…

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.

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 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…

Changing our perspective

Everything changes. There is not one thing that isn’t affected by change on this earth. The weather changes, people change, seasons change, circumstances change, attitudes change, everything changes. The only thing in the entire universe that doesn’t change is God. We always hear that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, but do we…

Walking in circles

Joshua, a very influential leader of Gods people into the promised land, took command after Moses’ death. The Lord said to Joshua, “every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you, just as I promised to Moses.” God commanded him to BE strong and courageous, because He would…

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…

Outreach Victories!

Last Thursday night was a night set aside to celebrate the graduation of our thirty-five, July 2016 DTS students.  We heard amazing stories as the students who had spent 12 weeks building and investing in their own relationship with God, were teaching and witnessing to others how to take religion and replace it with relationship….

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…

Becoming a Family

Night has fallen on Mount Maunganui. As I gaze down upon the warm glow of distant streetlights, I am captivated by the mysterious emptiness of the ocean below, and I reflect on the greatness of God and His powerful stirring in the lives of the young believers across New Zealand. The Marine Reach July DTS has been active…
