How Jesus Restored Dignity in Papua New Guinea | YFNZ Story

It was a normal Thursday in Papua New Guinea. We woke up sweating and didn’t stop until the sun was below the horizon. There were island-wide power cuts from 6am to 6pm, which meant no refrigeration, no fresh foods, and no fans (a.k.a. no relief from the heat).   Regardless, our Discipleship Training School (DTS) team was in high spirits as we prepared to go on the streets to share the love of Jesus.…

150 Salvations in a Prison in Papua New Guinea | YFNZ Story

This story starts before we even arrived in Papua New Guinea.   During preparation for our Discipleship Training School (DTS) outreach, our team prayed together in New Zealand.

God had met me through His word on a three-month Bible course, and I had come to understand the greater story we are all a part of. …

The Day I Didn’t Want to Tell People About Jesus | YFNZ Story

I thought that I’d already given everything to Jesus because I moved to New Zealand. This month I was shown that I couldn’t have been more wrong. At the start of July, I moved to Tauranga to do the Leaders Internship with YWAM Furnace NZ. One of the main themes of the internship has been intimacy with Jesus—I didn’t realise how much I needed it.…

When My Hobby Became My Mission | YFNZ Story

Have you ever thought of the impact that a bouquet of flowers can have in a person's life? I certainly hadn’t. Until recently, floral design was just a hobby that I enjoyed. It was a surprise when one of my students approached me after I taught at a hospitality workshop in Townsville, Australia.…
