Stories: I Am A Missionary - Loren Cunningham Loren Cunningham presented this video, “I Am A Missionary” to leaders at the recent University of the Nations Workshop in Mexico. Although I was not in attendance at the workshop I was extremely moved upon watching the video for the first time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gSuxP9wza4 My favourite response was recorded by one of the people attending the conference: When Loren presented this video to all the UofN leaders recently, we responded with a standing ovation. Many in that huge hall have faced tremendous difficulties, insurmountable odds, and some had even been imprisoned and interrogated… but every hand was raised in response to the call to missions. You can find out more about the video over on ywam.org (http://www.ywam.org/blog/2013/09/16/i-am-a-missionary-video/).

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

In the first 14-days of being used the chair had already been used to assist with 426 patients.

The Sheep River overflowed it's banks and took out a forest on the property as well as a building designated for prayer. The flooding also caused a puncture to a gas pipe near the YWAM Centre. This lead to an immediate evacuation of all the surrounding properties, including the YWAM Centre. The staff and students are now back at the centre are working on cleaning the property and hopefully eventually rebuilding their "prayer shack". (more (http://ywamturnervalley.org/summer-2013-newsletter/)) Around the same time as the flooding YWAM Turner Valley was also busy running a School of Biblical Studies (SBS). The goal of the School of Biblical Studies is to equip students to study and understand the content of the Bible. The content is covered in the student’s independent study and class lectures. The student uses the inductive method to study the whole Bible. This approach allows the Scripture to speak for itself and studies Scripture in context. http://ywamturnervalley.org/sbs/ (http://ywamturnervalley.org/sbs/) YWAM Flood Relief in Himalayan India (http://ywampodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/newsletter-for-Uttarakhand-791x1024.jpg) While Southern Alberta digs itself out of their floods severe flooding has inundated the India Himalayan state of Uttarakhand.

The urban agglomeration of Kolkata and its suburbs is home to approximately 14.1 million, making it the 3rd most metropolis area in India. As a growing metropolitan city in a developing country, Kolkata has substantial urban pollution, traffic congestion, poverty, overpopulation, and other socio-economic problems. What is Megacities? Interesting, random fact: The Kolkata Football League is the oldest (soccer) league in Asia and one of the oldest in the World. It was started by the British in 1898. Teams can start arriving in April 2014 for enquiries contact them on www.megacities.org.au (http://www.megacities.org.au/).

The program consists of a workshop that includes guest speakers, coaches, players and pastors. The participants receive spiritual, physical and mental training during the workshop. They addressed a few specific issues such as anger management, sportsmanship, player productivity and team bonding.

The Effects of Extreme Isolation In episode 57 of the YWAM Podcast (http://ywampodcast.com/pope-francis-and-ywam-my-pacific-hope-leaves-for-the-philippines-and-reaching-out-to-persecuted-christians-in-pakistan/) we talked about two of YWAM's sailing vessels focussing on the area of Micronesia for their outreach efforts. While it may be hard for us to understand how isolated these places are, and how hard it is on the people on those islands, I kind of started to grasp it while reading one of the more recent updates from the YWAM Ships OC web-site: (http://ywampodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Heading-to-Fanning-150x150.jpg)One thing that hit me like a brick after talking to nurses here today, in addition to all the others experiencing problems with transportation, is the direct effect on access to medical care.  Not having ships is the single largest limitation for people receiving available treatment.  Every conversation I had with dentists, nurses, medical assistants, the TB nurse, the public health nurse, all of them explained the reason they cannot treat people is that they cannot get to Christmas Island from Fanning and Washington even if they are sick.  The boat only goes a couple of times a year.  So, if someone is sick they have to survive somehow on their isolated island.  Even if they managed get to Christmas Island for treatment, they can¹t get home again for 3 or more months and the hospital has to pay them money for them to live on while the wait and wait for the next ship. You can read the full update on their web-site, www.ywamships.net (http://ywamships.net/2013/04/isolation/). Thank You from YWAM Africa for all the Volunteers A thank you from Kobus van Niekerk, a lead elder with Youth With A Mission in Africa.
