New Years News

Happy New Year from Captain Ann

Hi Ann

Happy New Year!  Thank you for all of your prayers and support in this last year.  I could not serve the Lord through YWAM Ships without you.  2016 was a year of restoration. The biggest lesson I have learned is how much God loves me.  I pray that 2017 is a year of drawing closer to God for all of us.
I was blessed to spend Christmas with my daughter Sabeth and her family. They are very busy with three girls under 5. We had a special time of re-connecting.
Reunion with Crew
January 3rd was the two year anniversary of the storm in  which we lost the S/V Hawaii Aloha and our crew member Aaron Bremner.  I was able to spend the day with Zach and Alyssa in Medford, Oregon. It was good to spend time together remembering Aaron. The four of us had been together on the Hawaii Aloha for nine months in Micronesia in 2014.  Please continue to keep us in prayer as we recover from this loss.

Outreach in Panama

I leave for Panama tomorrow!  Please pray for breakthrough on this Outreach.  Our goal is to take the M/V Making Waves to Ngobe Villages.

YWAM Ships Outpost Panama has faced many challenges.  The most recent was the destruction of the dock.  Boats are the main form of transportation in this region. The dock is critical to safety at Outpost Panama.

Please consider making a donation to the operating expenses and repairs of this remote YWAM location.  For more information contact the director:
