Last year we had some great successes with our global communications team of about 25-people. We are a team from every continent, working from many different time zones, with unique skills and talents. Recently I received this update from our team’s project coordinator:
In 2014 we continued to develop YWAM’s website so that people looking for opportunities to get involved can do so easily and reliably.. We have responded to the many enquiries that come to our help desk each week, directing people to the places and information they require to take their next step in missions involvement. We have maintained our information database so that details about YWAM locations are as reliable as possible. We have kept YWAMers all around the world up-to-date with changes and developments within the mission, helping them understand the implications for those in their location. We have shared stories with an international audience (through social media, the e-zine, the podcast, streaming, reporting, etc) extending the reach of each location’s news through our global platforms. We have made more of YWAM’s foundational teaching available online.
One of my real desires of serving in Youth With A Mission is to see people released into what God has for them. I believe that God has a plan and purpose for everyone out there, and to be able to help people discover that plan is a real blessing, and something that I have been able to do while working with this global team. This also came through from our project leader:
… every day through YWAM.org visitors send a total of about 49 inquiries about opportunities they find on the site. One of our goals for our global communication team is to recruit more people into God’s global purposes. God is using our efforts to direct many people every day to take their first steps into mission.
