ywam iDAHO has been formost in our radar for several years and have had contact with several bases; Nepal, etc, I am so amazed at the mission of YWAM to go to the needy wherever they may be ;wherever they have been missed, using the energy and great creative abilities of youth. YWAM Idaho is special to us as our friends serve there and we have found and love and ownership in the ministry and the great staff there that do such great work -- they are all in India now ministering and setting up relationships to forward Jesus there. Well done good and faithful servants--be blessed and be a blessing.

The staff at YWAM Idaho has prayer for me and have shared their ministry in a great way at their blessed facility/camp.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would not have the wisdom to offer changes to such a successful and blessed ministry except to pray for them and give it to God. There are many camp issues that could be helped but that is being dealt with in His time and with His resources.

We have had the privilege to support YWAM ministries for many years in different areas. Since the beginning of YWAM Idaho, It has been a thrill to see God's hand at work! We marvel at the way He has provided not only the physical structures but also the staff and students. We pray that YWAM Idaho will continue to reach young people in developing their desire to serve God both in the States and abroad. To Him be the glory!

Seeing many of their staff dedicate their lives to serving God through their work with students and young adults. Because of their comittment to serve in this way, many souls will be reached for Christ both at home and overseas.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I am not sure what changes I would make. I really like that young people can get a real vision for missions through this organization.

Our youth group traveled from eastern Nebraska to the mountains of Idaho for training at the Youth with a Mission base camp before heading to Boise to put into practice all that we learned. The young men and women who opperated the camp were wonderful. Each one invested themselves in serving us. Their joy was contagious as they lead us in worship. They shared their hearts through personal testimonies that connected with our students, encouraged us with skits and they taught us things that we could take with us into our every day lives as followers of Christ. The message theme was reinforced throughout the week as we learned to write and tell our own testimonies, use an evangicube to share the gospel, and pray from the heart, together.

At our time away from the camp the YWAM staff challenged us to get out and apply what we had learned by providing us many opportunities in Boise. Some highlights include working on a building that was to become a food pantry, painting at a homeless shelter, sharing the gospel through conversations at the park, and playing games with refugee children. The YWAM staff seemed to have thought every moment through finding opportunities that would have the most impact on us as well as on the community we were serving.

We had such a grteat time at YWAM Idaho that we are packing up our vans and heading back again in the summer of 2011.

the lives of our students and adult leaders. Each of us was challenged in ways that deepened our relationship with Christ.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

If they could relocate a bit closer to NE...Really, I don't know that there is anything that I would change about this organization.

It has been a priviledge to support YWAM Idaho. What a blessing to know that my contributions are directly empowering young people to share their faith of salvation through Christ to so many unsaved souls, both in our homeland and abroad. God has smiled on this ministry and time and time again has blessed its existence with miraculous affirmation of his love, his presence, his encouragement and his protection. This was incredibly evident when we witnessed a raging forest fire in the immediate area of the YWAM property. It totally skirted the camp's grounds. We pray that God will continue to uphold this ministry and heap blessings on its staff so his work at YWAM Idaho remains a light in a hurting world.

My time spent with YWAM Idaho has been one the most intense, well-spent, fruitful, fulfilling, and wonderful times of my life. I have learned so much from the discipleship and programs. The staff have pushed me to Jesus and encouraged me to do more than i thought was possible. During my time here my eyes have been opened to Jesus and His great plan for this world and those who call Him their God. I met the love of my life here in more ways than one, missions and an amazing girl who loves Jesus and has the same heart as me. I call YWAM Idaho home. They are my family. My experiences with them are invaluable. Thank God for what Hes doing through this ministry!

God imparted to me a heart for the unreached through my time with YWAM Idaho. I was discipled here to follow Jesus. Walking through life with me. Getting to lead others through YWAM is the most learning i have gotten to do ever. They offer top-quality schools.

I'm a youth leader who used YWAM in July of 2007. The time was amazing. I was raised in a Morman husehold and we were going on a mission trip to Salt Lake City. The training we received was in depth and very useful. I learned a lot more about the religion than I had in 14 years growing up. When we got to SLC the staff was extremely helpful. They had things set up for us to do each day and provided food for all of us. They made such an impact on me that after the trip, I used the YWAM Cascade base for my family's family reunion. Like I said, they are morman and were weary of doing it there. Marty and the staff made them feel completly relaxed. I would use them over and over again.

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

my relationship with Christ. I felt so close to God while I was there and I use what I learned in my everyday walk with God.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not do a thing. It REALLY was avery good experience. The staff was very informative and a lot of fun.

I just returned from India where I observed our young people in action. I am so proud of them. They were going village to village providing hygiene teaching which opens the door to share the Gospel. Our national workers are following up and planting churches. Their effectiveness for the Gospel is undeniable. This organization is focused and making a powerful impact where it's needed most!
