Merry Christmas, from all of here at YWAM Mazatlan, to you and yours this season.
When God told me to do the Art Evangelists School, I had no idea what to expect. I had just gotten
back from a year-long stint in Chile where I was teaching English in a small elementary school. Art
was the last thing on my mind. I stumbled across the website on accident and God spoke to me in
that moment. He spoke deeply to my heart, "I created you an artist and you are doing nothing because you are scared to risk it all.”

My time in missions has been anything but ordinary! It has been filled with transformation, community, and the truth of God. I have been in my Discipleship Training School for 3 months and it has been filled with incredible experiences led by the hand of God. These photos are a showcase of the truths I've picked up along the way. As a photographer, I desire to share, impact, and provide an in-depth look at what a life in missions looks like with YWAM Mazatlan. They represent a remarkable journey of faith in missions, in Knowing God, and Making God Known. They represent how God challenges, loves, and transforms.

We hear it everyday, a lingering question buried in the hearts of many students nervous to take next steps: Should I go straight to college? Take a gap year? Go on a short term missions trip or take 5 months to do a YWAM DTS ? Of course we’d be so excited for you to do a DTS! But what we want even more for you is to hear God's voice, and walk in His direction. We want you to step into your future with confidence, to fully understand your identity, and to know who God is. Though this may not give you a direct yes or no answer, our desire is to point you towards the Lord and hopefully it will give you some advice on hearing God’s voice in the midst of a tough decision.

Amidst the destruction, death, and turmoil that has recently struck Mexico, God has been calling YWAM Mazatlan to go and be His hands and feet among the devastation.
In the last 15 days, two earthquakes have shaken the grounds of Mexico. A magnitude 8.1 earthquake, known to be the strongest earthquake recorded in Mexico in over 100 years, hit the southern states of Chiapas and Oaxaca. 12 days later, a 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck the country's capital, Mexico City. In response, YWAM Mazatlan has sent a team of 4 to assist in aid, and provide any help possible.
One of the most stressful things about going on a trip is packing! What will I need? What won't I need? Here, we've strived to make your life a little easier. Here is the best packing list for your YWAM DTS here in beautiful Mazatlan, Mexico.

You just sent your application in, you just inquired, or maybe you even bought a one way flight to Mazatlan. Then fear sets in. You question, “Man, did God really tell me to do this? Maybe this isn’t for me. Maybe God wants something else." Have these questions and doubts plagued your thoughts? Because they have definitely plagued mine.
