Rating: 4 stars  

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

needs more funding to finish construction projects at the camp.

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.

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

More staff and resources to get more done! The harvest is white and ready!
