Transition for Growth

Dear friends,

We are less than 1 week away from leaving for Spain to attend the Leadership Development Course (LDC) in Malaga. Although 6 weeks in Spain sounds exotic and extravagant, we are going there to learn and grow and pray and make some important decisions. There will be LOTS of homework and soul-searching in the midst of the beauty and delicious food! Why? Because this is a year of “transition”.

After 25 years of ministry in Thailand, our roles are changing once again. And as YWAM Thailand now exceeds 500 staff, there is a need for us to function more as elders or spiritual parents to many of the emerging leaders around the country. Being present and coming alongside those who are just starting out in leadership can be a powerful ministry. But it requires delegating certain things so that we can be available to travel and visit these younger leaders – even as we continue to oversee YWAM Thailand. In addition, we have increasing opportunities to provide leadership development beyond Thailand as well – in Burma, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, etc.

As we do this, we are praying for clarity. That the Father will show us what to put our hands to, what opportunities to take, and what to let go.

Will you join us in this prayer and continue to journey with us?

If you would like to invest in this season of transition, please see the info below.

As always, THANK YOU for your continued prayer and partnership! We serve an amazing God!
