Pray for YWAM’s Flotilla

Published on: October 6, 2023

The Invitation, October 14, 2023

In the Pacific lie 936 isolated islands with no airports or regular ferry services. How can we reach all of the people on those islands? Even with YWAM’s 27 vessels worldwide, we can’t get to everyone. YWAM’s new Flotilla ministry partners with private yacht owners to reach isolated areas, thus opening more opportunities to reach the most remote islanders, people loved by God. Please take a moment now to pray for these isolated islands.

Topic suggested by Jeff Rogers and written by Julie McLaughlin, both in Hawaii. Photo of a Flotilla yacht, from YWAM Flotilla.

Please take a moment now to pray for these isolated islands. Please also pray with us on October 12, our prayer day for YWAM’s prayer initiative called The Invitation.

Listen to the Letter
  1. Pray for French Polynesia. Sixteen isolated islands in the Tuamotu group have no airport. We have two yachts reaching them this year. Pray for more access to become available.
    • Operation Christmas Child. Pray for continued partnering with this organization so every child may know God’s love for them.
    • Oral Mother Tongues. There are nine known mother tongues in this region, but we are told there are many more. Pray that everyone can have the Bible in their language.
    • Community assessments. Pray for deep connections with the local people as we dream about God’s heart for each community.
    • Translation. Pray for French speakers to have a heart to help local people to translate.
  2. Pray for Southeast Asia. In parts of Asia, islands with fewer than 500 people are considered uninhabited. God sees every person and has plans and purposes for their lives.
  3. Pray for new locations. Flotilla yachts are either already active or planning ministry in the Eastern Mediterranean, the Solomon Islands and Fiji. Pray for more groups of ministries to partner together.
  4. Pray for Christian yacht owners. Pray for more to answer the call of the Great Commission, because there are many more isolated places to reach.

Take Action

  • Visit www.ywamflotilla.org.
  • Talk to Christian boat owners who might be interested in volunteering their vessels for missions.
  • Consider doing a School of Navigation to be equipped with marine skills for sailboats.
  • Pull a team together and go. We position our boats near airports so that volunteers can fly in, get on board, and then sail out to isolated islands. We match the needs of the isolated Islands with the many tools that YWAM has to offer.

How We Prayed

September, 2023: YWAM Leadership

  • Ivory Coast: A YWAM team prayed for unity and for YWAM leaders “to keep carrying the spirit and flame of YWAM.”
  • South Korea: A YWAMer prayed for growth after pruning: “It’s time to grow again, time to transform, and time to seek more of Him!”
