April 2017 I like to first thank our Lord Jesus Christ and you for giving to such a time like this. I was thankful for the opportunity to support God’s work through Silver and Karen Duarte at Alpha y Omega ministries. Our team headed out Wednesday morning by car to Mexico. There were a few bumps on the road during the trip and the team was almost sent back to California for not having the trailer registration that we borrowed. However by the grace of God the boarder chief allowed us through.

In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”  Acts 20:35

I’ve learned that the things that man thinks are insignificant brings a loving environment, and shifts the street to life.

“Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.”

1 Timothy 4:12 NLT

Thank you for keeping our team in your prayers!

The Graduates

Posted on Updated on

March 2017 Its the last week for students before they graduate. Students arrived in LAX from Greece safely. Students are recovering from their jet lag. If you like to read a little more about students outreach click on the link.

At this moment I ask you to join our team in prayer for these students as they’ve gone through much change. That students may rest and adjust to the time here in California. As they prepare to go into another chapter in their lives.

Team and I had a chance to fellowship with local high school and middle school youth.

I’m perplexed! There is nothing I could do or say that could express how deep God love is. He’s given me opportunity to work with YWAM Pismo Beach. I’m deeply grateful for your contributions. I would not be here if it wasn’t for you. He’s such a great God that he speaks to us in vision, dreams and through a burning bush.

“And the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush. He looked, and behold, the bush was burning, yet it was not consumed.”

Exodus 3:2 ESV

Breathe In The Autumn Air

Posted on Updated on

October 2016 It’s the fourth week of lecture. This would not be possible without you. Last week’s topic was the father’s heart. Students learned about the character of God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

At this moment, we are planning and praying. Students will be heading to Greece working with refugees. YWAM Pismo students will also be attending YWAM united, which is a gathering of 15 bases from around the world. They will be sharing the gospel and hearing people’s stories. The focus of this school is Media and Justice. As we plan, we are waiting on the Lord with expectation that the Holy Spirit will lead us.

As we commit this time to the Lord, I ask you to join our team in prayer for these students as they get closer to their outreach to Greece. Because of you these students will embrace the time in Greece and be the hands and feet of Jesus.

Thank you for keeping our Pismo Beach team in your prayers!

Papua New Guinea (PNG)

Posted on Updated on

Cedric, Andy, John cooking a possum.

Dear reader March 16, 2015 Papua New Guinea is a remote place. There are no coffee shops, gas stations, or city lights. Tropical trees and vegetation are visible as far as the eye could see. Bananas hanging freely from the branches ready to be picked. Sound of tall grass swaying by the wind. The cold river water brings growth to all that comes in contact with.

Fuzzy Wuzzies Angels (locals) have a simple method of living. One method is you farm what you eat. If you don’t work, you don’t eat. Rain is one source that provides growth for the crops that the locals grow. According to what I saw they are hard working individuals. They may wear torn shirts, dirty pants, and have no shoes, but if I could describe them in one word it would be high-minded tribe. They make you feel right at home. Even though they don’t have much they’ll give you the best of what they have.

Education is a must for these villagers. Healthcare is a necessity because of the sickness that is caused by malaria. Malaria is common in Papua New Guinea due to the lack of mosquito nets found in the villages. It is also a pain to treat when there may or may not be a trained doctor near by. They have the basic need of clothing, and shelter, and also the longing for water during the dry season.

Camping In The Outback

Posted on Updated on

November 24, 2014 It’s our third day Camping in the outback of Australia. It’s been good so far the first night went for a hike with Riley, Jon, and Saxson. As we left the campsite you could see the fire dim the further we walk towards the woods. We had torches yet one that I had was really bright. Two of the other guys had torches that change color depending what color they wanted. The color made it a bit easier on the eyes sense it wasn’t as bright. For a while we were just walking with out any light so are eyes could adjust to the dark night. There was no moon that night so it was a bit difficult walking through the woods. After about a 25 minute walk we came to a trench that had these old rusty cars that some one just left. They look like 1950s 1960s car models as we walk pass. After that the four of us went down this small hill that brought us down to a small pond we had to walk across to get to some narrow path in the woods. Before we got there was a toad at the bottom of the hill which was piousness. Saxson I believe had ask Riley for the machete so he could strike the toad which end up cutting the toad in half. So right after we headed towards the narrow pathway in till there was no mark or pathway to fallow. So my buddy Riley pull out his machete and started cutting branches to make a way through. So we where pretty much being adventurous going through the brush.
