Haydee and I are back from Cartagena, Colombia. So what was that all about?
Staffing the Master in Team-based Communications
We had our first intensive in person with 18 participants of 14 different nationalities in three languages in Cartagena. Haydee came and helped with logistics and hospitality.
Some may ask why I am staffing a University of the Nations Master’s degree program?
Most of the participants are leaders in Youth With A Mission. Most of them have been in the mission for more than 20 years. In this program, we tackle the Theology of Communication and community, and the effects technology has on our communication and culture. We also look at how different cultures communicate and the leadership it takes to navigate all of the above. I am privileged to be a part of equipping the leaders who are taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Nations! The research and projects of these leaders will significantly impact how we move forward as a mission.
This is the first trip of four to South America we will be taking for the next two years.
What is Going on and Coming Up!
Haydee and I will attend the YWAM’s Eastern North American Gathering in Alabama this weekend. This will be the first time YWAM Lynchburg will be represented!
Also, in Lynchburg, we have two more staff join us! We also learned about a group of YWAMers now attending Liberty University who started a prayer movement. We are discussing how to best support them on what God has begun there.
Through your prayers and support, you are impacting leaders in YWAM in the nations, establishing YWAM Lynchburg, and helping equip young leaders to lead a prayer movement. Thank you so much.
