"The true greatness of any church
is not how many it seats but how many it sends!"
In the mtns during Don's first visit to the Philippines,
with a Mission" (YWAM) is a
worldwide, evangelical, missionary organization, made up of
thousands of volunteers, of all ages, from dozens of nations
and from all walks of life. Founded in 1960, YWAM's purpose
and calling has been to train up and send as many servants
as possible, to as many places as possible, demonstrating
and sharing the life changing message of God's love and forgiveness.
Their motto throughout all these years has been, "To
know God and make Him known."
Since Don's first training school with "Youth with a
Mission" in 1992, he has studied, supported and at times
been a "part time" staff member of one of the several
hundred YWAM ministries in operation around the world.

The purpose & passion of Don's life is "Ministry"...!
That is, to use the gifts, talents and abilities God has given
him to reach into the lives of all those he meets. To reach
into those hearts and lives with the love of God and the message
of salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ.
Don uses his wide range of life experiences as "vehicles"
sharing love and developing friendships with those needing
to hear about the Savior who gave His life for them.
