While COVID-19 has altered the way that we are able to outreach all over the world, we want to highlight those who’s mission work hasn’t stopped. Long term missionaries all over have conquered the new challenges that come with ministering in a pandemic, including doing so without the help of short term missionaries. Check out their stories and how you can help their ministries this year.
In 2010, the Lord gave Bruce and Patty a vision of starting a new YWAM ministry in Wylie, Texas. In the fall of 2012, YWAM Wylie launched their very first Discipleship Training School. Their local outreach continues to grow as they reach out to families and at risk youth in the local community. They continue to develop their overseas work with at risk children in Southeast Asia, Central Asia and Uganda. At the end of this last year Patty was able to open a storefront in downtown Wylie called Hope’s Gate. Hope’s Gate offers practical, life-giving hope to orphans, victims of human trafficking, and the world’s most vulnerable. They do this through their jewelry project, education fund and mentoring. Currently they are working towards opening a pregnancy crisis center in Wylie. They have a need of $30,000 for start up costs to see this new ministry launched.
Mission of Grace Haiti
Kim O’Dwyer is the Mission Director at Mission of Grace in Haiti. She came to Mission of Grace in January of 2010 and was forever changed. Founded by Ms. Lynn Johnson their mission is a Christ-centered organization seeking to meet the needs of Haitians through love and compassion. They are an orphanage of over 70 children and over the years has added a church, a school, a medical clinic, an elderly care home, and a men’s discipleship home. There is currently a lot of volatile political unrest in the Carries and Haiti as a whole, so prayer for peace is very much needed. Finally they serve 2 meals a day at the school along with feeding 300 elderly and children at their orphanage and elderly home; all while having to maintain their regular monthly needs.
Garth and Caroline Gustafson helped to found and oversee the work of YWAM in Battambang, Cambodia. They believe God is restoring Cambodia from the Killing fields of the past to the Living Fields of the future and that God is Transforming One Nation in One Generation. This is happening as a generation of young Khmer serve Jesus with obedience and joyfully serve their nation for God’s glory and the good of their nation. A few things they are currently working on and are in need of prayer for are Mercy Ministry, Khmer Mission Sending and Campus Development. Mercy Ministry: Devastating floods & COVID economic decline: the combination of these 2 aspects have put many Khmer in a desperate spot and they have their Church Planting and Mercy Ministry Teams daily in the villages doing relief with food and bible distribution while sharing the hope and love of Jesus. Khmer Mission Sending: Through COVID God catalyzed 2 different church planting & pioneering teams to be sent out, one in November and one in December to the provinces of Koh Kong and Pursat to start new ministries and they are doing very well. Campus Development: They are continuing to develop their current Campus and are about to break ground on their next building, which is a multi-purpose sports-complex and gathering hall. They have raised about half of the $600K and are in need of more financial breakthroughs.
Wild Grace International Ministries
After much prayer Lima and Sophie Jamir started Wild Grace International ministry in India with the help of many volunteers in April. Their goal is to grow the Wild Grace international Ministry in India. They were able to distribute food to local churches which provided 43 families in Colombia with rice, lentils, sugar, and salt. They were also able to give assistance to 10 students’ to help with school fees. Due to the lockdown, farmers were not able to sell their products and winter is hard in the mountain villages, so they distributed 100 warm blankets to 100 families and went house to house to pray with their families. In January 2021, they distributed 200 school shoes for the new school year, along with school supplies. Looking ahead in 2021, The Jamir’s plan to go Colombia to help Sophie’s parent’s church. They have four small churches that need help. Their goal is to raise $6000 for the trip which will cover travel, food and lodging.
