Stories: Devotion Feedback from Matthew who said that he appreciated hearing the devotion on a previous episode of the podcast, so here is another one, this time from Richard Blake from YWAM Perth ...

Update from YWAM Dehradun on Lakhimpur (Uttar Pradesh) Floods (http://ywampodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/20130731-073245.jpg)   The survey teams from YWAM Dehradun have returned from Lakhimpur after assessing the effects of the flood. The floods that hit the area have completely flooded out most of the farmland and the crops in the area. Although many of the people still have their homes, they are without clean water, food, and electricity. There is also significant health needs in the area. YWAM Dehradun is looking at ways that they can bring health care, food, clean water, and solar powered lamps into the area. Unfortunately there is not much expected from the government and YWAM is looking for other ministries and churches to partner with.

There is a great story on the YWAM Ships Australia web-site about how they were able to help a local health care worker in the village of Kopi, in the Gulf Province of Papua New Guinea. The health worker there is the only health care worker in a 15-mile radius, and she plays the roles of paramedic, doctor, nurse, and transport coordinator. YWAM Ships Australia was able to set up a Primary Health Care clinic in Kopi to help her with support and training. She was able to learn a lot from the team, and also taught the team members a few things.
