YWAM Youth With A Mission
Update from Jewell Woodard

As most of you know, I am a part of a christian ministry based in Kona, HI. Almost a year ago, I came here and learned so much about what Jesus has for me in life and that he has chosen me to be a part of the great commission. Three days out of the week, we partner with the local
Micronesian church and reach the lost people around us and serve them. We have done prayer walks and house to house evangelism these past 2 weeks. My schedule is jam packed every day. I start with 2 hours of corporate prayer, classwork duty (grounds work around campus), intercession, homework and if I have time, maybe the beach. In September, I will be starting a 9 month Discipleship bible school. For this school, I am asking to receive $900 – $1200 a month to help pay the full cost of my tuition and living expenses. If you would like to help support me or continue to support me and partner in the call God has on my life, you can click the link below and sign up to support me monthly or a one time donation. Please keep your eyes open for more updates on what God is doing in my life!

Leadership track is coming to an end. A bittersweet moment. 
Track has been go go go, always pushing for breakthrough within the staff and contending for incoming students. Not a lot of time for processing. I’m glad to say that I will have about 2 weeks of rest before my Discipleship Bible School starts. Lots of time to consecrate my heart for the seeds the lord is waiting to sow.


The Lord so lovingly has placed me in friendship with wonderful women of God who were looking for a roommate. 
I never thought about the idea of living off campus, for a first year staff it isn’t usual.  The 4 girls I now live with prayed and had my name. A week later I asked about the open spot in their apartment. I know god so specifically placed me with these 4 women. Praise god for a full kitchen and a nice bedroom. 


I just want to share with you how expectant I am for the fruit that is to come. It is so hard to put into words the tangible presence of the lord I have been experiencing these past 6 weeks. 
I recognize the favor of the lord over my life, the calling he’s so graciously pulling me into. 


My heart has been set ablaze for the local people of Kona. i’ve mentioned on facebook a baptism of a local guy we’ve been building a relationship with for the past couple months. The spirit broke out and 4 teenagers who were drinking on the beach asked what was going on. We’ve been meeting with them every Tuesday praying and reading together. Finally we were able to bring them to the youth nights we have and all 4 were saved!! The locals on this beach are pretty rough around the edges. Extremely soft at heart after spending every evening playing volleyball with them. I want to ask if you would please be praying for one boy particularly: Justice, he is 17 and homeless. I bought him dinner yesterday and took him to a youth group. It was very out of his element considering his circumstances, selling drugs for his next meal and no place to call home. Pray for the love of Jesus to come over him, pray for his sonship unto the lord and pray for financial breakthrough and restoration in his home life. 


I am inviting you to pray and ask the Lord if supporting me monthly is something he would like you to do, to come alongside me and see the youth of kona saved.   


Lastly, thank you for believing in me and every one of your prayers. I am the fruit of your sowing. And now it is my joy to do what you have done for me to others.
