Focus on discipling the nations
One of the spheres that influence and disciple cultures and peoples is ‘media’. YWAM has been training media missionaries in different parts of the world.

Trois Flèches Production, the non-profit film collective at YWAM Dunham, just finished a successful 3-week internship during which we filmed three projects, including a web series entitled « CAMPING », the story of Julia and her younger brother Ethan who go on a camping trip to mend their somewhat failing sibling relationship.

The web series format is still a recent phenomenon in the film community and we are proud to present an engaging and high production value series on our YouTube channel for the next 6 weeks!! Each episode is between 6 and 14 minutes.
The show is PG. Please keep in mind that like most of the other YWAM film ministries around the world, we are committed to telling stories that can reach the general audience, not just Christian content for the Christian audience.

As you can imagine, we would be very grateful if could help push this project so it can gain momentum in the coming days and weeks. Our trailer is out and the first of the 6 episodes launches tomorrow - Friday, August 5th.

Here are three ways in which you could help support our project!
- You can watch our trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FMc3_9naDac

What People Are Saying About Kerygma:
“For me Kerygma is a prophetic voice to the Body of Christ, an agent of reconciliation between Catholics and other Christians and a demonstration that it is possible, it is good, pleasant and powerful when brothers live and serve together in unity (Psalm 133).”
Joshua Tanaami (Brazil), Field Convener, YWAM South Asia

Pray for the Catholic world:
Pray for the more than 1 million young people returning from ‘World Youth Day’ in Krakow, Poland, where they gathered to celebrate the faith and grow closer to God.
Pray that they would take what they have heard and experienced and continue to grow in their faith and be witnesses for God, back in their homes.

Reflections for the movement fostered by the grace of the Holy Spirit to restore unity among all Christians:
Quite often we come across Catholics & Protestants, who have had negative experiences of 'the other'. Below is a devotional that can help us to consider how God is calling us to look at what He is doing by His Spirit and look at 'the other’ with fresh eyes.

Jn.15:1-8; Acts 9: 26-31

Whoever remains in me & I in him will bear much fruit (Jn.15: 5)

How comforting it is to know that we do not walk alone through this life! No matter how isolated or weak we may feel, the truth is that Jesus is with us and will never abandon us. With Jesus as “the vine,” we can be assured that we will receive everything we need to nourish & sustain us. With the Father as the “vine grower,” all the circumstances of our lives – both pleasant & difficult – become his instruments as he prunes us & molds us into his image.

As an example of the effect that abiding in Christ can have, consider the early church as Luke describes it in Acts 9: 26-31. Where did Saul receive the courage no only to forego his former persecution of the church, but to become one of its foremost apostles? His personal encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus, changed him radically, but there were still layers of pride, prejudice, and fear that God had to strip away so that he could become more and more effective. More than likely this pruning process was difficult, but Saul embraced it because the treasure of intimacy with Christ was so precious to him.

Think also of the disciples in Jerusalem, when Saul attempted to join them. How did they overcome their fear and mistrust of their one-time persecutor? Again, they let the Lord lead them, guide them, and prune them where necessary. Certainly this was not an easy thing to do, but they came to trust that God could bring life from death, and so they were able to take the risk.

God is deeply committed to us, just as he was to those first believers. If we do our best to stay connected with him during our days, he will prune us as well. It won’t always be enjoyable, but it will be fruitful! Our lives will never be the same; they will keep getting better and better and better.

“Heavenly Father, make my heart one with you and your Son, so that I may bear fruit that brings you glory and honor.
Help me to accept & embrace the challenge that the surprising turn of events bring with it. I do not want to let past experiences, understandings or beliefs define or limit me in following Jesus into the fullness of His plan to bring unity in relationships in His Body, the church.”

Focus on the unreached:
The 4-14 window
This video made in 2011 is still so relevant in its call to prioritise our outreach and resources for children in our families and churches, who need to be evangelised and discipled.

Children in this age group also comprise a huge percentage of those who are unreached and are one of the groups who are most open to the gospel.

Pray and consider what God might be saying to you, in terms of your personal responsibility in this area:

YWAM Events: Many needed volunteers in Lesbos, Greece
The YWAM teams serving at the refugee camp in Lesbos, Greece have issued an appeal for more volunteers. Please consider sending a team.

“Come to Lesbos, we need your help….

“The camp is bulging at the seams. Eight more boats full of hopeful and desperate people have landed in the past week only to be crammed with more than 2,000 others into an already full detention camp.

“God is moving. Only last week a family was baptized after crying out to God on their crossing, being received in the camp, and then connected to a local church where they met Jesus and were then baptized in the Aegean.

“The food is very basic and at subsistence levels. Milk is rationed. Our volunteers continually rise to the challenge making sure everyone is fed while defusing tension and keeping an atmosphere of love. People are bored and having someone share joy and hope, listen to their story, and play games with the kids helps the time slip by. There are so many opportunities to serve these wonderful people but the workers are few.

“The Greek military expects the dam to burst and the boats to flood across the Aegean once more. The volunteer numbers have dropped and at the same time leadership has reinstated 24-hour cover to help provide the right level of support to the family compounds as well as the units for vulnerable adults and unaccompanied children. YWAMers regularly take double shifts and expend the last reserves of energy to serve these people.

“I am appealing to you from Lesbos - please stop whatever you are doing and ask God if He would have you come. Tomorrow we are already 11 people short for the late shift and in the coming weeks we are looking at similar challenges. Would you also stand with us in prayer as we seek God for all that we need in order to serve here?"

For more information and to make the necessary arrangements to come, please email Lesvos@ywamrefugeecircle.com.

Focus on discipling the nations
A thought-provoking and soul-searching post about our expectations of politicians and governments and God himself, related to the political process, in the context of the American elections.
What do we grasp for, what things motivate and excite us, and what things do we assume God wants for us as Christians, when we enter the electoral process?

What People Are Saying About Kerygma:
“Through DTS my passion for awakening the giant of the Catholic Church was intensified. I was so overwhelmed to see Christians from many denominations getting mobilised and equipped for a changed culture, taking Jesus to the nations and serving the church in so many creative ways. This unity is a sign for a changed history.”
Bernadette Lang (Austria), DTS student at YWAM Melbourne, Australia. Now working on a missions base in Salzburg, Austria.
