This week we find out how people are Golfing for YWAM, YWAM Germany Invades the USA with a new German language training centre in Florida, we talk about the development of new Languages and writing scripts to help oral language cultures to express themselves in and read the written word and we talk about YWAMConnect.com Shutting Down it's website, email and payment services. Stories: Golfing for YWAM in Newcastle and Colorado Springs YWAM Emerge and YWAM Strategic Frontiers have partnered up to put on a high quality golf tournament at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs. The Broadmoor consists of several private courses, and the YWAM Golf Tournament will be held on the West Course this year. The tournament will be help on June 10th, 2013 and you can register and find out more at www.ywamgolf.com (http://www.ywamgolf.com/). (http://ywampodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/YWAM-Golf-sponsorship-opportunities.jpg) YWAM Newcastle recently help a 100-hole Golf Marathon to raise money for their warehouse facility. They managed to raise around $20,000 for the development and had a lot of fun in the process. Here is a response from Stu Brown, one of the participants in the event: (http://ywampodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/YWAM-Newcastle-Golf-150x150.jpg) I was truly impressed with Jack Narvel’s organisation of the whole event and I believe he and Jan have pioneered a new way for YWAM Newcastle to raise finances for what God is doing through them in the city. This kind of event is so unique and definitely engages a different demographic to any other that YWAM would come in contact with. With NBN television coverage, corporate and personal sponsors, and the new connections with Shortland Waters Golf Course, the golf marathon has increased community and corporate relationships and made way for this event and others to continue each year. I can’t wait for the 2014 YWAM 100 hole golf Marathon! You can find out more about the even on the YWAM Newscastle web-site, www.ywamnewcastle.com (http://ywamnewcastle.com/blog/2013/04/01/i-survived-the-100-hole-golf-marathon/). YWAM Herrnhut has Expanded to Florida! (http://ywampodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/YWAM-Herrnhut-in-Venice-Florida-150x150.jpg) YWAM Herrnhut in Germany is launching a new training location in Venice, Florida. It will be once of the few German language discipleship training schools outside of Germany, and the only one I can find in either North or South America. YWAM Herrnhut (http://www.ywamherrnhutblog.org) is doing this expansion for two reasons: * They are outgrowing their Water Castle in Herrhut, Germany * To attract German speakers into their ministry You can find out more about the expansion on their blog, www.ywamherrnhutblog.org (http://www.ywamherrnhutblog.org/2013/03/ywam-herrnhut-in-florida.html). Uniskript - a revolutionary linguistic innovation Uniskript is opening doors for understanding of the written word in cultures around the world. Starting with languages from Asia, the Pacific and tribal languages in the jungles of Brazil, these script based writing systems are easy and quick to learn - even for verbal only cultures who have never had written expressions of their own languages. Instead of requiring months and years to learn to read, Uniskript makes it possible for beginners to read simple phrases in a matter of hours and become fluent far faster than with traditional "iconic" (like Japanese) or "phonographic" writing systems (like English, French, etc.). YWAMConnect.com Shutting Down Service (http://ywampodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/ycportal_sitescreen.jpg)The YWAMConnect.com service that was widely adopted and used by YWAM Ministries around the world is being shut down at the end of April 2013. The donation part of the web-site has already been shut down, with staff and ministries needing to find alternative ways to receive donations. Over at YWAMIT.com
The week we hear about the M/V Pacific Hope geing on route to the Philippines, we look at some tree planting and conservation projects in East Africa, we talk about a few different ways that you could get involved with Youth With A Mission and we also talk about some of the things that you may learn by spending time in YWAM ... Stories: M/V Pacific Hope on the way to the Philippines (http://ywampodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/481283_4981124119858_301163989_n.jpg) Some more information about the ship and the plans for it... The M/V Pacific Hope was built in Japan as a Marine Training vessel and is ideally suited for humanitarian work across the South Pacific. Its shallow draft allows it to enter small lagoons and rivers in order to reach the most isolated and poorest communities. The vessel is fifty four (54) meters long and weights 450 GRT’s. It can carry up to seventy (70) people and 155 cubic meters of humanitarian and emergency relief supplies. It has a cruising range of 20,000 miles. The vessel is equipped with two medical surgeries with volunteer medical teams concentrating on dental and cataract surgeries. Crewed entirely by volunteers the M/V Pacific Hope will operate out of the Port of Tauranga and Port Vila in Vanuatu. The vessel is expected to concentrate its activities in Vanuatu, Fiji, Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea in the coming years. The vessel will arrive in the Philippines on the 2nd of April 2013 for a two-month stay before making its way back to New Zealand, via the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, and Fiji. The vessel is expected to arrive in New Zealand around mid July 2013. The vessel will not only carry healthcare professionals but also “Mission Reach Teams” from local churches and youth groups in New Zealand who wish to send short term missions teams to a developing nation in the South Pacific.

YWAM Arusha Tree Planting and Environmental Conservation Projects Youth With A Mission Arusha in Tanzania, Africa is working with local communities on the reforestation of the land. Deforestation has decimated many areas of the country and has contributed to food shortages and more... Translation from local community leaders on the video: I visited those trees. We got more than 4,000 seedlings in 2005 and now more than 2000 trees are doing well. This means that more than half of all the trees we were given survived. When you plant three trees and two have survived, that is really encouraging. There are some NGO's that have been helping us and they are very close to my location and even Maklat Division. Youth With A Mission has been helping our community and they have given us seedlings and the community has received them.

Caribbean Reach passed through the Panama Canal Saturday March 16 the MV Caribbean Reach passed through the first set of locks on it's way through the Panama Canal. The ship is on it's way to Hawaii where it will meet up with a team and be deployed to Micronesia. Micronesia is the most isolated area of Oceania and is consequently the most impoverished. The strategy is to forward position both vessels, & deploy University of the Nation’s teams on board for a month at a time throughout the year, targeting the most isolated. The teams will be comprised of YWAM DTS field assignments along with specific skilled volunteers embedded among them. The skilled volunteer crew range from doctors, dentists, opticians, news reporters, mid wives, water specialists, sports ministry personalities, spiritual leadership teachers and bible trainers (http://ywampodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/YWAM-Ship-Caribbean-Reach-Exiting-Panama-Canal-Lock-300x224.jpg) You can read more about the plan for this ship on their web-site (http://ywamships.net/2013/03/micronesia/). Reaching Out to Persecuted Christians in Pakistan (http://ywampodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Reaching-out-to-Christians-in-Pakistan_medium.jpg)The now nearly empty neighbourhood of Joseph Colony was looted and the homes of 250 families and at least two churches were torched. It is reported that hundreds of Bibles were also burned. The hostile emotions leading to this destruction were stirred up after a young Muslim man alleged that his long-time Christian friend had committed blasphemy ... Around three hundred families have been affected by the destruction of property; people are destitute and going hungry. The government has promised that funds to repair homes will be allocated and that they will compensate each family up to $5,000. In the meantime, families are growing more desperate, wandering aimlessly around the shells of their burned out and looted homes. In the immediate aftermath of the attack, people took shelter with other families at night, themselves living below the breadline; now they have been moved into a tent city. YWAM Pakistan Relief and Development (http://www.ywamrelief.org.uk/) has had experience in responding to the needs of disaster victims. They were part of the response to the 2005 earthquake, and the 2010/11 floods. At various times, they have offered assistance to persecuted Christians in scattered villages and colonies in Punjab and Sindh, the two largest provinces of the nation. As a result of this experience,

YWAM Blantyre has an HIV support centre in a rural mountain village called Mancama. There has recently been rain in Malawi and although it is desperately needed, it makes transportation dangerous and the need for such food supply trips even more vital.

That first rescue was of two women we found trying to swim through the strong brown current, holding on for dear life to a closed plastic bucket containing their belongings. The helicopter winch operation was a success and their lives were saved. “Now we continued scouting for more groups of survivors, directing the SAAF helicopter to the exact locations to rescue them. Some families we found had climbed into trees and I wondered how long had they been there, waiting for help. “Continuing the search, we hovered slow and low over the muddy flood waters, not wanting to miss anyone. The hard fact keeps hitting me that we must have missed people who might have been rescued. I feel guilty about that; I pray they are found tomorrow. Government boats are still continuing their search and rescue. “In this short operation with SAAF, over just one afternoon, we saved more than 20 people: women with children on their backs, some men, and several weak and elderly people. During the 30 second turn-around time, every time we were on the ground, many children came to us with waving hands, asking to be flown away too.
