For the grace of God that bring salvation hath appeared to all men,Teaching us that ,denying ungodliness and worldly lusts,we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world.
We are blessed to see the lives of our Disciples being touched, changed and transformed by God's power. And out of his richness and glory he covers us by his Love. It blesses our hearts seeing them really giving their lives completely to JESUS. They are so precious to him, like jars of clay. He is at work in each individual. Out of there uniqueness and differences,
the Lord turns ashes into beauty, and to be used by his glory in advancing his Kingdom. It is so amazing to see that in spite of their character issues and weaknesses, attitudes are being tested. God is great and faithful to deliver and heal them, even in their shortcomings you can see their willing hearts and the desire to change. Jesus loves and cares for them. As YWAM Olongapo this is who we are ,this is our DNA to know God and to make him known to all the woman we reach out. We share God's love and embrace them and value them for who they are .
This group has a willingness to learn and has a desire to grow in their Christian walk with God. As a discipleship staff team, we are deeply blessed and grateful for this opportunity that the Lord has entrusted these women to us, to be a joy and a blessing in their life, we are also learning from them.
At the moment the disciples schedules are hectic this time due to their up coming Evangelism next month. They need to be prepared and ready for their different skits,and dance presentations, also each of them must prepare themselves to share their testimony. All of them are quiet excited for this event and its a new experience for them.

GLOBAL YOUTH OUTREACH 2017
The Lord says to my Lord:"sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.the Lord will stretch forth your strong scepter from zion, saying,"Rule in the midst of your enemies"Your people will volunteer freely in the day of your power;In holy array,from the womb of the dawn,your youth are to you as the dew.
Most of our young people are children of the staff. Our heart as a ministry is to equip young people to be bold enough to share the gospel to the nations. But to do that we have to teach our young people to be fully grounded in the word of God. We also took the opportunity for them to attend a Youth gathering in Manila. It was The Global Youth Outreach ran by Megacities affiliated with YWAM Perth, which was held at Pasay City Cuneta Astrodome for 3 days. We were happy to see them respond despite the long day, preaching are really timely, focusing on the Father heart of God and the great commission. We see how God is really working in their hearts. This Month we have re-started a devotion for them every morning which helps them to have the word of God first before they do everything. We are stepping out in faith for these young people.It's quite challenging but we are praying and hoping that someday these Young people will be our our future leaders.
Please include us in prayers. -Please pray for our young people to be ignited
Pray for Pray for finances that we can have an outside gathering once a month.
Pray for staff to have more wisdom how to minister to these young people.
Matthew 9:37 -38 then he said to his disciples the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few therefore beseech the Lord of harvest to send out workers into his harvest.
Currently, for the whole month of November and first week of December, we are working with a team from Priceless DTS in YWAM Perth who are currently working with Megacities in Manila and contacted us asking if they could work with us as their DTS has a specific focus on human trafficking. So every Tuesday and Wednesday they come and work with us in our base in Pasay City, Manila. Even though they have only worked with us for four days so far, they have already done a lot and experienced a lot. We have done a lot of children's ministry, evening ministry visiting girls working on the streets and in the bars, open air evangelism, house to house visitation and we also opened our house as a free day spa for the girls we have met. It has been amazing to see what the Lord is doing through this team. Many connections have been made with people giving their lives to Christ. We invited them to the spa session day in our drop inn center and many of them attend.Praise God one woman who has decided to be a part of our disciple program r in Ywam Olongapo. and the other girls was thinking to join in that program but they haven't decided yet,but we are praying that they will do the right thing.
Some of the team and one of our staff went to meet some girls who were interested in coming to the spa day. Those girls were not there at the time, but then another girl we hadn't met came. We asked her if she wanted to come and she said yes. She stayed with us for a few hours and shared her story with us. She had been abused by a abused by a customer the week before and had cried out to the Lord for help. So she was amazed with what we had to offer in Olongapo. Currently she has gone back home to sort out her children and then hopes to come back and join our ministry. Then at the end of ministry the same day one of our staff came back with another woman who had already packed her bags to come to Olongapo. Some of our staff and the team had met her the day before and had been praying and looking for her that day, so were amazed that she has now joined our ministry. It is amazing to see what the Lord is doing and even though we know the Lord is able, we never want to lose the amazement of what he does and how he does it. It is an honour to be a part of what the Lord is doing in all three cities where we have a centre.
On December 05,2017 we are planning to have a Christmas party for the girls and the children as well together with the mega city team.
God's protection as we go out to every outreach locations. and strength and God's wisdom as we minister to them.
Please pray for GOD's provision over us as an Evangelism Team, we need finances as we travel and go out to reach out for the girls on bars and streets.
Pray for more teams to come to YWAM Olongapo and to partner with us in reaching out to the lost.
Currently in Angeles we are renting a small 2 bedroom house,which serves as a drop in center.We currently use for bible study with the girls working in the red light district or for hosting teams.Our aim is to go there at least once a week to do evangelism and to do bible studies with some of our staff hoping to relocate there when possible.We are also planning to host a Christmas/ New Year party for the girls on the street and in the bars.
Pray for more workers and teams to be able to step in this ministry.We need more people to come and work with us.
Currently there is no stable support for this ministry,help us pray that will be able to find people that will help and partner with us in the ministry.
We are looking to the future for this ministry, we are starting to pray about whether to rent a bigger house or look to buy a house.
May God gives you heavens dew and earth's richness an abundance of grain and new wine.
We have 4 toddlers and 1 preschooler and 2 young babies, children's disciples and 6 Children's staff. We are seeing growth in spiritual development as they learn to worship God and pray for one other . When a child is sick we encourage them to pray for each other. We are thankful to God for what He is doing. We continue to pray for improvement in the children's behavior towards one another and also towards the adults, including development of self control, building friendships and showing kindness. We realize that some of these behaviors are normal for their stage of development but by the grace of God we will be used to mold the children into kind, respectful and morally upright young people.
We give God thanks for the new equipment and atmosphere the children are able to enjoy, and we are thankful to those who donated so we could improve our storage.

For behold you, and I will turn to you, and you will be cultivated and sown. 10I will multiply men on you, all the house of Israel, all of it; and the cities will be inhabited and the waste places will be rebuilt. 11I will multiply on you man and beast; and they will increase and be fruitful; and I will cause you to be inhabited as you were formerly and will treat you better than at the first. Thus you will know that I am the Lord. 12 Yes, I will cause men-My people Israel-to walk on you and possess you, so that you will become their inheritance and never again bereave them of children.'
13"Thus says the Lord God, 'Because they say to you, "You are a devour er of men and have bereaved your nation of children," 14therefore you will no longer devour men and no longer bereave your nation of children,' declares the Lord God. 15"I will not let you hear insults from the nations anymore, nor will you bear disgrace from the peoples any longer, nor will you cause your nation to stumble any longer," declares the Lord God.'"16Then the word of the Lord came to me saying, 17"Son of man, when the house of Israel was living in their own land, they defiled it by their ways and their deeds; their way before Me was like the uncleanness of a woman in her impurity. 18Therefore I poured out My wrath on them for the blood which they had shed on the land, because they had defiled it with their idols. 19Also I scattered them
among the nations and they were dispersed throughout the lands. According to their ways and their deeds I judged them. 20When they came to the nations where they went, they profaned My holy name, because it was said of them, 'These are the people of the Lord; yet they have come out of His land.' 21But I had concern for My holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations were they went.
22"Thefore say to the house of Israel, 'Thus says the Lord God, "It is not for your sake, O house of Israel, that I am about to act, but for My holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you went. 23I will vindicate the holiness of My great name which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in their midst. Then the nations will know that I am the Lord," declares the Lord God, "when I prove Myself holy among you in their sight. 24For I will take you from the nations, gather you from all the lands and bring you into your own land. 25Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. 26Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and will be careful to observe My ordinances. 28You will live in the land that I gave to your forefathers; so you will be My people, and I will be your God. 29Moreover, I will save you from all your uncleanness; and I will call for the grain and multiply it, and I will not bring a famine on you. 30I will multiply the fruit of the tree and the produce of the field, so that you will not receive again the disgrace of famine among the nations.
