Craig and Lib Pulsifer serve with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) reporting on stories of God's work around the world. YWAM Ships Kona exists to serve isolated people in the South Pacific with practical medical aid and hope of the gospel.
Papua New Guinea’s history of violent displacement and eye-for-eye tribal justice spawned a culture of fear, anger and resentment. The watershed we found ourselves in was controlled by the Binindari – a formerly nomadic tribe who conquered the prior inhabitants by force to make it their own. Theirs is story of transformation.
It was midnight and pouring rain when our Discipleship Training School (DTS) team arrived from Kona, Hawaii aboard the YWAM Liberty. The ship was pitch black and hotter than the inside of a cow.
Media Mission Course Update:
OK, it's confession time, I (Craig) underestimated the demands of acting as a journalist and being a full-time student on our recent Training Outreach in PNG.
As a result, promotions for the Media Missions Short Course fell to the wayside and the course has been bumped to April, 2020.
On the plus side, that has freed Lib and I up to help with in-house media team needs, including:
Develop ministry Communications and Marketing Strategies
Draft Content Management / Editorial Calendars for 2019/20
Introduce Digital Asset Management system for archiving footage
Implement ASANA, a project management system (Lib's baby)
Create year-end capital push campaign for Comms Department.
YWAM Ships Kona base leadership is now formulating a strategy to streamline and prioritize communications and marketing projects for today's digital audience.
July/August - Craig & Lib back to Canada
to set up visa and medical care for longterm outreach

September - return to Kona, HI to work on Media Dept. Campaign

DID YOU KNOW: We've launched a blog called "Rattle the Bones" to share more stories with others. The website name refers to God's promise for redemption and renewal found in the book of Ezekiel, chapter 37.
