Global Gates

As a church Christ commanded us to “…go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” This was recorded for us in Matthew 28:19-20. It’s now about 2000 years after Christ gave us that message, and the Church, meaning you and me, have still not gone into all the world.

One thing that we have seen increasingly is that “The World” is coming to us in the forms of migration and refugees. Is this God’s way of bringing people to us, since we haven’t gone to them?

I don’t know…

One of the ministries that YWAM is working with, and that is working with this global migration is the “Global Gates Network …

YWAM Refugee Works

YWAM has been active serving refugees since at least 1979 when group of YWAMers went to Hong Kong to serve the Vietnamese boat people at “Jubilee Camp”. When they were there they did the work that no one else was willing to do, they shoveled out three feet of human waste from the lower floor of the refugee camp. After that the YWAMers repaired the broken sewage pipes, and fixed the plumbing in the place. After that they were allowed to start a school, hold Bible study classes, offer counseling, and so much more…

YWAM has continued to serve refugees all over the globe, working to meet their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs as God leads.

Currently YWAMs refugee work includes work in:

  • Lesvos, Greece
  • The Middle East
  • Germany
  • Dalarana, Sweden
  • Calais, France
  • Thailand

Here is a story about some of the work that is happening with refugees, and how you could be involved …

Prison Ministry in Mexico

One of the many ministries that YWAM is engaging in around the world is ministering in prisons. While looking at stories to share with you on this news show I read an inspiring story about a team from YWAM Tyler and their ministry into a prison in Mexico.

The YWAM team had the opportunity to minister to a maximum-security prison in Mexico, but not only that, they had the chance to minister to the prisoners in solitary confinement. The team delivered a program of worship, testimony, and prayer. The part of the story that really stood out to me was what the writer of the story said after having ministered to some of the inmates:

… as I looked around at this man behind the bars, I realized this guy is a child of God too, and Christ loves him just the same! I no longer saw him as a threat or someone to fear; I just looked at him as a friend. Then my heart went even deeper hearing God ask me, “Would you switch places? Would you take his sentence and let him walk?” Without hesitating I responded, “Nope!” I then glanced over at an empty cell and realized Christ totally did that for me in an even bigger way! I wasn’t just in a cell with a sentence hanging over my head either, I was in hell with no hope at all . . . until Jesus came and rescued me! Amen!!!

I’ll link to the full story in the show notes at, and if you have the time, I want to encourage you to take the time to read it. Check it out on the YWAM Tyler Blog,
