YWAM CALBAYOG SAMAR Update
Good day! May God’s grace be upon you always!
It was 2003 when the Lord sent a group of young people led by Jesamin “Bebing” Gurapo to the island of Samar. It is the 3rd largest island in the Philippines yet one of the poorest provinces in the country. It is the land of the people called “Waray” which means “nothing” in English but are brave warriors in heart.
When YWAM reached the shore of Samar, the Lord used this organization in transforming the lives of the Samariños. For the past 18 years, many of the young people have been sent to school through the Student Sponsorship Ministry (SSM) and being discipled through God’s Word. Majority of them are now professionals and in missions. The wrong mindsets have been renewed as these young Samariños started to believe that their true identity is in God. Through this program, family conditions improved as many of them are now having stable income.
Furthermore, Ate Bebing took the courage to challenge the body of Christ in Calbayog city to intercede. Through her initiative, intercessors in the city were awakened.
Through the years, the ministries of YWAM continue to expand to the different towns and cities in the island of Samar.
When Ate Bebing and her team stepped into the island of Samar 18 years ago, they have been praying for a property. A land where they can build facilities that can accommodate schools, visiting teams, and an area to farm to generate funds.
After Ate Bing’s death, the Lord answered our prayers in a way that we did not anticipate. He provided a place which we believe that is suitable for our ministries in the future. We were able to find a 995 sq. meter house and lot amounting to Php 2,000,000.00 (40,000 USD).
We praise God for providing Php 1,500,000.00 for the property. However, as of now, we are continually praying for the remaining amount for us to finalize the purchase. We need Php500,000.00 (10,000 USD) for the property plus around Php300,000.00 (6,000 USD) for the documentation process including the transfer of title.
Would you consider giving to this need? Any amount will be highly appreciated.
