Our second report is a big change up from our first three weeks on Vancouver Island. Not only was our team going on our first outreach together but we were traveling to a new location to work with a whole new ministry team on Vancouver Island. It’s ironic that we were focused on pioneering YWAM Nanaimo and yet we were joining with a ministry that was 5 hours away from Nanaimo. However, this was an outreach that we set in our calendar months before arriving. No matter where we were at with getting established, we were going to volunteer at this camp. But to have a breakthrough of getting a team home days before leaving, this marked our team with indescribable gratitude and faith. We were going into this camp with a capacity to fully focus on the campers and not worry about where we were going to be living for the two weeks that we would be volunteering. We didn’t understand fully what we were going to be a part of or what God had in store there, we were just wanting to go and serve where we could. Esperanza Ministries has a commitment to be a place of hope and refuge that reveals God as our Creator, to the remote communities in the West Coast of Vancouver Island.
Everything in this video is exactly what we have lived in our time with Youth With A Mission. Everything! This life we have been called into and we have chosen has been full of craziness and adventure. Our family lives this life– the life of a missionary!
Here are some videos from the YWAM teams that we sent out of our latest DTS that we just wrapped up. These give a great idea of the work that we are involved with as Tessa and I work in Kona!
The first video was made by one of our students Jee and the second video was made by one of our staff Jennifer. How cool are these??
This special spotlight is a snapshot of sorts of what's been happening in the Fuiava family and missions this year. Even though there's still a few more months left in 2016, we thought this could be a reference if you'd like to catch up with us. It has been especially busy from the moment we returned from our holiday in January to now, September. Enjoy!
