I guess you could say I was a client that served?? I did a discipleship training school in Cascade Idaho, with YWAM. It was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. I was in a lecture phase, which opened my eyes, ears, and heart to a better understanding of whom Christ Jesus is (To know God). Week after week we had new speakers, experiences, discussions, and opened up every morning with breakfast together, alone time devotions, worship and prayer together, and then started up on our topics of the week, (for three months this happened). During this time the people i was around in and at the Idaho base amazing me more and more. God used each and every single one of those people to show me the true love of Christ. The base is located up by Warm Lake in the beautiful mountain area, and for some reason it just seemed right for me to meet with Jesus everyday on that mountain, growing in my understanding of whom Jesus is. I also had chores, which I did not enjoy at first, but God took that time to soften my heart, I was able to overcome some anger issues/ selfish ways, and God was able to speak to me though that experience. I learned what it means to serve God by serving others, with joy. I learned how to let go of my past and how to daily give my all to my Savior, I learned how to love other around me like Jesus would have intended, and I learned how to see the rest of the world through the eyes of Jesus, to have a new world view, that was and is so much more beautiful, then what I saw before. God is alive in Cascade Idaho. God is alive everywhere. But what it comes down to is the openness of your heart, so that you would seek. He is desperate for you, and weather you realize it or not you are desperate for a Savior (him). Cascade Idaho YWAM is doing amazing things in Jesus name; they have so many opportunities for disciples to lead, and share the word, and to grow. YWAM Idaho also seems to have the vibe of openness, towards what ever they hear God calling them to do. They seem ready to drop anything of their own lives, willing to daily surrender, and always striving for the goal God has set before them. All in humility, all in joy, love, truth, hope, desperation, and in compassion. Thank You so much YWAM Idaho for once having me as a student, my life has been forever changed, Thank you Jesus :) I miss you all :) The last three mouths of my YWAM experience was over seas in India. The leaders, and staff from the YWAM base did a great job encouraging me, answering my questions, and showing me how to take God's love to a different location (Make God Known). They actually let me have some leadership opportunities which was new for me. It was amazing too! We traveled all over central India, stayed a good while in Aragabad. We had many outreach "tools." We prayed, which was power :), we built relationships, we shared testimonies with a translator’s help, we went to villages and taught about proper hygiene with a bible story at the end, we provided hygiene kits for children in villages, we attended Indian Christian church serves, we went to orphans, and we did the life house skit. There was so much more we did too, even divine appointments. All of this was previously prepared during lecture phase. God did some amazing things though our team from YWAM Idaho that season (2009-2010 Fall DTS).

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The results of this experience on my life, left me with more confidence to be a leader for Christ. It gave me a hunger to syudie the word of God more in depth. It helped me know how to see the world though the eyes of Jesus, and it gave me an overall better attitude.

They have three differnt in town house locations. The office is farly small, at times it got crowded in there. One of the town houses called the Depo could be remodled. They should fix the plumbing as well. The other town house is kind of old too, they could remodle it. I would hate for them to get new buildings becasue so many amazing memories are stored up inside each place. It would also be amazing to see YWAM Idaho reach out more to the other camp grounds up by the warm lack area.

We recently became the pastors of a small Church in Cascade, ID. Getting to know a new part of the country, it's people and culture while at the same time trying to make in-roads of ministry in our new town we have had a challenge with such a small congregation to draw volunteers from.
The
local WYAM-ers have extended a ready hand of assistance and quality ministry-minded hearts whenever they have been called upon. You can tell they have great training and are qualified in a vast array of need meeting skills to promote Christ. We greatly appreciate them.

We received great training while working with YWAM Idaho.
They provided 4 days of training which was a huge blessing to our group and for the lives of my students. The training was terrrific and was mixed with activities, games, free time, and group building. My students and my adult leaders
loved the experience. Our training provided great resources for when we went out to serve and we were well prepared through the training. YWAM Idaho did a great job organizing and working through different organizations to plan the places and things we would take part in from helping open a Community Center by doing various work projects, to street and park evanglism, to our work with the regugee population. I would definitly recommend them to anyone and we are looking forward to returning this coming summer with another group of high school students. I am also excited to promote to our graduating students YWAM Idaho's other training like DTS opportunties.

I was a student in YWAM Idaho from September 2007-February 2008. My experience says that their staff truly care about people, not only those who come to them as I did, but also the people they feel called to. I appreciate their desire to pour the majority of their energy into one region, rather than spreading their resources and staff thin. This tells me they have a desire to see quality rather than quantity, which is exactly what you want when working with people.

My life was deeply impacted through my experience in YWAM Idaho. They chose quality teachers and put their lessons into practical life. The experiences that they provided in India shifted my perspective of poverty and opened my eyes to the need for transformation in the human heart. They have shaped the direction my life is going.

I can’t think of any major ones. Maybe put more insulation in the cabins- they got pretty chilly at night.

I am Director of Engineering services for my company. My step-daughter spent 3-years with YWAM Idaho. I have seen her grow in the Lord throughout her time with the team. She is very organized and had used her talents to support and help the team develop. As she spent time with the team she has had clarification to her calling in the Lord. God has blessed her with a fiance' with a marriage planned for May this year. We have also been donors for this period of time. I spent 8-years in full time ministry as a Care Pastor as the Department Head in a church of 1000 as the leader in charge of Missions. YWAM, I believe is one of the worlds leaders in developing people for the Great Commission. God bless y'all!!

My connection to YWAM Idaho is as a donor and long time friend of the director Marty Meyer. Having served as a pastor for 21 years I have been impressed and inspired from a distance by the achievement of seemingly impossible goals through faith and perseverance. With its connection to India and other Asian areas YWAM Idaho demonstrates how to think globally and act locally--the primary action being to raise up a generation of missional leaders. And I know I can trust the organization implicitly because I know the character its leader.

I spent 3 years with YWAM Idaho. During that time, I grew soooo much in my relationship with God and my identity and knowing who I am in Christ. I went from someone who just existed, to having a purpose and goals and working to make a difference in the world.

my own life, as well as in the lives of the young adults who have come as DTS students. I saw them grow in their relationship with God, and then be challenged on the outreach to North India, sharing their stories and ministering to un-reached people.

As a 17-year Christian school teacher, with 5 years professional youth ministry experience, and 5 years outdoor Christian camp experience, I can say that YWAM-Idaho not only impacts India with its innovative and regular outreaches, but transforms young souls into mature servants. Marty Meyer, its director, has a huge heart for the lost, and is a gifted leader and teacher. He is my brother-in-law, a mentor to me over the years, and a friend and brother in Christ. When it comes to the kingdom of Christ in this world, I'd say this: Marty "gets it."
I had opportunity some years ago to participate as an instructor on a "Backpacker's DTS" outing. It was remarkable to see what God was doing then, and the progression in this YWAM base has been steady and fruitful since.

I've been personally blessed by Marty's heart for God and zest for adventure in God's kingdom. As a participant/leader in one of the Backpacker DTS outings, I not only had opportunity to teach eager young adults, but was myself impacted by the move of the Spirit. God is working in and through YWAM-Idaho!

Continue to expand the extent of and refine the focus of the organization through the biblical equipping of gifted young leaders.
