Newsletter No.10  -  October, 2019
Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving, eh!
The blessings at this point are too numerous to count. We are discovering that God is as interested in our personal relationships as He is in our ministry call. Our foray back in Canada is coming to an end and we have seen major healing, restoration and reconciliation of relationships within the family and a building and deepening of friendships across the board.
Go...God!
Our 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.
NEXT STEPS
1) Oct, 2019: Shore up support - Last July, we returned to Canada with guidance from Luke 14:28 to “count the cost of discipleship” - that no man builds a tower without adequate preparation. Today, we are at 60% of our ministry budget, despite a month-long diversion to tend to Craig's dad in hospital - and thank God for that bit of healing!

2) Nov/Dec, 2019: Return to Kona Base - We will return to Port YWAM, Kona to strengthen relational ties with leadership and lock down editorial workflow and training plans with the Communications Team.

3) Jan, 2020: Editorial Outpost Recon - BIG NEWS! We are exploring a move to the Philippines to get closer to fleet operations and increase efficiency and frequency of editorial coverage. Strategically, Manila with its geographic proximity, lower cost of living, and reliable internet is the natural choice for this.
4) Jan/Feb, 2020: Marine/Medical Stories - As YWAM Liberty and Pacific Link ships return to service, we will be there to cover stories in PNG, Solomon Islands, and the Philippines. 

5) April 2, 2020: Media Missions Short Course - Multiplication is the name of the game. We plan to lead a 3-week crash course in field reporting and post-production techniques for missions-minded storytellers out of Kona, Hawaii.

Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea (PNG) - The M/V YWAM Liberty—a 1,700 tonne modified medical container ship—lies moored in Motukea Terminal. Two pre-fabricated dental containers and one woodworking unit have arrived from Norway as part of YWAM Ships' new containerized aid delivery model. Meanwhile, crew must wait for a crankshaft from the UK to replace the damaged original shaft before returning to service in January.
The old main engine crankshaft lies in the cargo hold of the YWAM Liberty.  It was a herculean task to remove this massive piece of machinery, but thankfully, God is bigger than Hercules and the job was safely completed without incident.

We recently launched a blog called "Rattle the Bones"  to share our stories with others! Check it out!
 
We are just 40% away from meeting our monthly financial goal.  Would you prayerfully consider partnering with us in the production of more victory stories of God's work among the nations?
