YWAM Ships Kona looks to reach the isolated by bringing the love of Jesus and practical help in the form of Health Care to remote islands throughout the Pacific. Here’s a short overview we contributed to showcase some of the work they do.

Container Ship: Aid in a Box

The vision is simple.  The vision is BIG.  Deliver modular aid using ships, like the YWAM Liberty in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea to otherwise isolated communities on islands in the South Pacific. It’s a radical idea – and it’s working! The Liberty is a 1700-tonne supply ship, redesigned to handle full-size shipping containers pre-assembled as […]

Lawrence Tamarau: Making a difference

The world needs more families, like Lawrence and Sandra Tamarau in Papua New Guinea.  As a local missionary, Lawrence works fulltime as an engineer aboard the YWAM Liberty – a 1,700 tonne medical cargo ship –  delivering critical aid and the gospel of Jesus Christ to his countrymen in remote islands in the South Pacific.  […]

A Prayer in Nindawari

YWAM Ships exists to reach the isolated with medical aid and the gospel of Jesus. This year, Katie, a 23 year-old registered EMT from Idaho, USA, led a small team from YWAM Ships Kona up the Gira River of Papua New Guinea to remote tribal villages of the Binandari.  Yes, they were able to soothe […]

The Chieftains of Jingada

Six hours over open ocean by banana boat and then 90-minutes more up a flooded, croc-infested river called the Gira, lay the village of Jingada.   In late January, we joined a 12-person Discipleship Training School (DTS) team from YWAM Ships Kona to visit Jingada and deliver aid and ministry programs to the isolated.  We […]

New Generation for YWAM Liberty

It was midnight and pouring rain when our Discipleship Training School (DTS) team arrived from Kona, Hawaii aboard the YWAM Liberty in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. The ship was pitch black and hotter than the inside of a cow. Earlier that day, the ship’s main generators had packed it in, but tired as we […]

Where others have walked

Have you ever found yourself in a place and felt as though you were not alone? I don’t mean like there’s someone stalking you or that the place is haunted; not that.  More like you are standing on ground where important people have walked before and even though centuries have passed, they are somehow still […]

My Date with Gimli

Got a call from the local Film Commissioner looking to house a Yeti. “A what?” I asked. “A Yeti… Y-E-T-I… you know, an Abominable Snowman, albino Sasquatch… I need to find a cave big enough to shoot a movie in,” he said in a tone that somehow managed to make me feel stupid for asking. “There’s […]

Up the Yellowknife

Jack Stefanyk leaned on his paddle and chewed his lip looking off a rock outcrop down at the river raging below. I looked down at the river, too; and then over at Jack.  I looked back at the river and again back at Jack.  He was still biting his lip. “Well, what do think?” I asked.  There was […]
