YWAM – Yachts for Life

“You did not choose me but I chose you and appointed you , so that you might go and bear fruit – fruit that will last….” John 15:16 (NIV)

As the hurricane season approaches, we are taking inventory of what God enabled us to do through the generous partnership of many people who volunteered their time and resources in extending God’s Kingdom in Fiji this year so far. We are first and foremost grateful to God for His protection along the way and for leading us by His Spirit, allowing us to walk through challenges which made us grow and for enabling us to see many people in the remote islands of the sea being blessed and transformed through the Word of God. We are grateful to the Methodist Church in Fiji, the AOG Church and the Fiji government to open their doors and host us in various places

The places we visited and had Bible Engagement were as follows:
In the Yasawa and Mamanuca group:

• Yasawa-i-rara (BELT seminar)
• Naviti
• Yanuya (BELT seminar)
• Viwa
• Waya (BELT seminar)
• Solevu, Malolo
In the Macuata Province:
• Kavewa
• Vunivutu
• Mali
• Kia
• Gevo
• Malau
We distributed more than 300 Bibles (Fijian translation) plus Bible Comics in the local dialects. We graduated 70 people from going through the BELT seminar and saw at least 6 people make a decision to surrender their lives to Jesus.

We are so grateful for our skippers Bruce and Elaine Goodwin, Barry and Sheryl Wanhill, Doug and Althea Hannah, Markus Anliker, Daniel Schulz and Hinrich Kraenzlin for navigating the boat safely between the islands. Thank you to the ministry teams from the BSN in Tauranga and our local team who tirelessly ministered at various times. And a huge Vinaka Vakalevu to the Bible Society in Fiji for equipping us with hundreds of Bibles. Lastly a huge thank you to those of you who gave financially and prayed for us during our time out there. It would not have happened without all of you.
To God be the glory. We are preparing now to continue our work in the Yasawas, the Mamanucas and in the Macuata Province until April next year. After that we will concentrate on the Lau group.
