A group from Youth With A Mission (YWAM) have been setting up a library for the children in the community and it’s just a few more days before they will be done and the library will be open for the first time. When asked whether Daow thought the children in the community would enjoy using the library, she replied excitedly: “They will be there all the time from the day that it opens. You won’t be able to get them to come home.”
...One of the pioneer ministries of YWAM Argentina is located in one of the most affected cities, San Carlos de Bariloche. Its volunteers did not wish to stay enclosed in their center - they went out to be light in the darkness!

In the past, the Olympic Games have been a great platform for outreach, where athletes and fans from every nation gather in one place.
“There is no event on the planet that offers such an opportunity to reach people from so many nations,” said Yan Nicholls who is heading up the Forever team.

The winds of change are blowing strong across the diverse lands of the Arab World – the Middle East and North Africa. A lot has happened in the region recently, and what seemed insurmountable only a month ago, no longer stands today. These events have caught the world by surprise, and the changes seem to be coming one after another at an unprecedented rate. History is being made daily as we sit and watch. Governments are nervous. The oppressed emboldened. Are God's people ready?
In light of the recent events in Tunisia, Egypt and other Arab nations there are many groups positioning themselves to control the future of the region. What should we be doing? Are we content to sit back, wait and see what happens and take action when things have settled? Or do we believe we can stand up and steer the winds of change now, working with God to make history?
