It’s less than 100 days to go until YWAM Together (YT) begins.

We are so glad so many of you will be joining us on September 2. If you haven’t registered yet, please don’t delay to avoid disappointment. Registration will remain open until just before YT begins.

If you haven’t booked your accommodation yet, go online now to instructions on the YT2018 website.

Take advantage of the cheap prices, meal package & facilities which we have negotiated for you. Pay only the first nights accommodation now to make a reservation. Share a room to make it cheaper and stay onsite where YT is being held in, what will become a large global YWAM community for a week.

Expectation

Many younger YWAMers in Asia have expressed to us how excited they are to be attending their first global YWAM gathering. They are eagerly looking forward to being with their global YWAM family and for many, seeing and hearing from Founders Loren & Darlene Cunningham for the first time.

For those of you have been in YWAM for many years and have been to many gatherings we are praying that you will be surprised and apprehended by the Lord God in new ways. God has ‘much more’ to reveal to you and exploits to be engaged in.

Recently as the YT convening team were meeting together online, Peter a senior elder in YWAM Myanmar, shared an impression he had in prayer. He saw people being touched deeply by the Holy Spirit before they arrived and as they travelled to Pattaya.

The Scripture the Lord has given repeatedly to us for YT2018 was Revelation 4:1 – ‘Come up here… and I will show you the things to come’. May we prepare to join our wider YWAM family with hearts child like, softened by God’s love and eager to meet with Him afresh.

Special Requests

If you need additional help due to any kind of disability, please let us know at on the YT2018 web-site and we will endeavor to match this with a person to assist.

Prayer

The YT convening team is inviting as many as possible in the YWAM Movement to join in a 21 days of prayer and fasting in the lead up to YT2018.
More on this in a future update.

Sponsorship

We are encouraged by the spontaneous generosity of YWAM bases and individuals helping sponsor others to attend. If you know friends of YWAM who might be in a position to help sponsor those who are in need, yet desiring to come – please encourage them to do so.
