Building on Trust
Proverbs says, "We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps."  A month ago, we headed to Kona to lock down details for an editorial outpost in Manila. That vision still stands, but the timing of our steps have been reordered by opportunities beyond our control.

The Mission

YWAM Ships Kona brings medical aid and the good news of the gospel
to isolated islands in the South Pacific.


Our mission is to tell those stories to the world.
  NEWS
Last year we joined a 12-person team aboard the YWAM Liberty to deliver aid and share God's love with isolated coastal villages in Papua New Guinea.
Based on the video above, I'm not sure who was blessed more - the villagers who received food, clothing and care, or we students who enjoyed the heartfelt hospitality of our PNG hosts.
It has been a year of great favour for YWAM Ships - including the delivery of a new generator for the M/V YWAM Liberty (Papua New Guinea) and several new dental/medical units for the M/V YWAM Koha (New Zealand).
BREAKING NEWS: YWAM Ships Philippines Director, Rheo Loseo, Attorney Missy Ansaldo, and Communications Director, Leinie Alambro have given the "green light" to launch an Editorial Outpost in Manila.  Plans to relocate by June 2020 are now underway.
On March 11, 2019, YWAM Ships Aotearoa took possession of the M/V YWAM Koha (Maori for "Gift"). This 486 ton cargo ship has the capacity to carry containers, supplies and crew volunteering for education, medical and developmental projects.
UPCOMING MEDIA TRAINING COURSES
(with links)
 
1) Jan-Mar. 2020 - Creative Media & Communications Course
(at YWAM University of the Nations)

2) April 2-23 -
Media Missions Short Course
(at YWAM Ships Kona)
NEXT STEPS
1) Jan-Mar, 2020: Creative Media & Communications (CMC) Course - We seem to be getting fast tracked our plans to multiply media missionaries as we have been tapped to co-lead a 3-month media course at YWAM's University of the Nations Campus.  This is a departure from our initial plans to move closer to the ships, but in the longview, this training program is an important step toward establishing an Editorial Outpost in Manila, serving the South Pacific.

2) March, 2020: Assignment to Marshall Islands? - We are hungry to crank out more stories and now looking at a possible visit with the incredible Suderno family aboard their 57' sail/cruiser, the Cloud 9 in the Marshalls.  Part of the year, this homeschooling 4-member family delivers Operation Christmas Child boxes to remote villages in Micronesia.  Discernment re timing is needed.

3) April 2-23, 2020: Media Missions Short Course - After co-leading the CMC Course, we jump right into a shorter, but equally intensive 3-week program of our own design geared to help media missionaries 'up' their storytelling game with simple tools and proven techniques.

4) May/June, 2020: Editorial Outpost Recon - Now with the blessing of YWAM Ships directors Brett Curtis (Kona) and Rheo Loseo (Philippines), Lib and I will head to Manila, Philippines to  scout out ops for an Editorial Outpost serving YWAM Ships' South Pacific operations. As mentioned, Manila - with its geographic proximity, lower cost of living, and reliable internet - is the natural choice for this initiative.
