Preschool in a suitcase teachers training workshop

Do you have a heart for children?

Join Rite Mayers & team for the Preschool in a suitcase training workshop
Sunday 12th to Wednesday 22nd July 2015
Bi-lingual English/Spanish

Purpose: This workshop is to put tools in the hands of preschool teachers, parents and those with a heart for working with children. Our desire is for you to use the training handbook that you receive, to train your own workers and utilise the biblical curriculum to provide a biblical foundation in children’s lives.

Pioneering: Our hope is that preschools will be started all around the world. You don't have to be experts or even trained teachers, you need a heart for God and for the children he loves. This workshop will inspire you and equip you to get started.

Preschool training: This 8 day workshop utilises a teacher's training handbook that focuses on four areas: the teacher, the child, the environment and the curriculum. Through interactive, sensorial and creative modelling of a learning environment, we trust this will equip you for your own future workshops and preschools.

Prayer: That these materials will provide basic principles to enable educated and uneducated people to make a lasting impact on this next generation of children.

Nurses & Support Workers Needed for Home of the Open Heart Hospice

Home of the Open Heart has recently opened a hospice aiming to accept HIV+ patients who have a life limiting illness that requires 24 hour care and do not have the money, or family, to care for them.

The hospice also hopes to be able to offer respite care for periods of 2 weeks at a time for patients who fulfil the above criteria and have limited family support.

They are needing 5 full-time equivalent nurses and 5 full-time equivalent non-clinical support workers. For more information please see their volunteer needs on their website.

Empowering the poor through community development

Domestic violence is an issue faced by many families so YWAM together with the People's Committee of Van Con commune held some training to raise awareness in the community on Gender Equality and Domestic Violence. 

We emphasised the importance of clear family communication, especially considering many Vietnamese households have more than one generation living together. 

Attendees, women and men of different ages, were able to learn about, causes of domestic violence and good strategies to build healthy family relationships...

Volunteer at Home of the Open Heart

There is an estimated 580,000 people living with HIV in Thailand. Of those, an estimated 16,000 are under 14 years of age (UNAIDS). Chiang Rai, one of the provinces worst hit by the AIDS pandemic, had no home for HIV positive babies. Project L.I.F.E. stepped in to meet death with life and hope – and Home of the Open Heart began in 1999. 

It’s purpose is multifaceted: To give HIV positive babies who cannot be cared for by relatives, a loving safe home. To offer self-contained cottages for HIV+ mums to live independently with their baby/young children. To offer hospice or respite care to women and children in their final stages of life. To visit families affected by HIV/AIDS in the community and offer income generation opportunities.

Each HIV+ child and woman, is cared for by the staff at Home of the Open Heart for as long as they live. It’s a commitment from the heart, one that brings lots of tears, lots of sleepless nights nursing them back to health, and lots of joy. Oh, to see the babies who came in dying who are now laughing, playing, going to school, just being ordinary children. That’s what L.I.F.E. is about.

Home of the Open Heart is needing more staff and volunteers. Find out more info at:

Seeking to fulfil the Great Commission

Thanks for your heart of compassion, justice and self-sacrificing love like that of our model, Jesus Christ.

Call2All is about fulfilling the Great Commission, through the Great Commandment and the Discipling of Nations through every sector of society in our generation. Call2All is about collaboration and partnership, it is about servanthood, it is about an intentional focus upon those who have yet to taste and see the goodness of God once in their lives. Most of these would be unreached, the poorest, the ones living in the most challenging places on earth.

Call2All is about looking at models and examples that are working like the city of Mumbai, India. There are several thousand churches that are reaching out to their neighbor, engaging with the major themes of the city like human trafficking, children at risk, housing and economic development through integral mission. There is much to be learned from our brothers and sisters in Mumbai as we convene in city of global influence.

There are also wonderful models of self-sacrificing love from around the world that will also be reflected upon to see how we can grow and multiply in our combined efforts. We sense that the Holy Spirit is already doing many things in Mumbai and that these are going to be days where God meets with us in a variety of practical ways. Come, bring your gifts, your skills and those things God has placed upon your heart to impart.  We really want to focus upon Jesus and how he engaged with the poor, needy, outcasts of his day through a new model of love and compassion.

Thanks for registering as it will a limited group of people.

My name is Steve Goode, Ambassador for YWAM Mercy, Compassion and Justice living in Bangkok, Thailand as well as on the steering group for Call2All. I have never been more encouraged that the Great Commission through the Great Commandment and the Discipling of Nations can be completed in our lifetime. Come and join us in the historic event.

God bless,

Call2Compassion and Justice

My name is David Westlake, and for as long as I can remember I have been gripped by the vision of mission and inspired by people who were passionate about the last, the least and the lost.  My passion, which I share with the Global Compassion Network, is to inspire and equip Christians and churches  to serve their communities with word and deed in the power of the Holy Spirit.  

We believe God has sent churches,  “To proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor,”  (Luke 4:18-19); that God’s mission involves proclamation, intercession, worship and demonstration, and we believe that this can transform people’s lives, and the world around them. 

18 months ago a small group came together and  shared vision that we had to go to a place where the church was living out this mission and to learn from it: we wanted to go to Mumbai.   In this city churches are doing amazing work sharing God’s love for the least, the last, and the lost.  I’ve visited a number of times, and I am also moved and inspired by what the Christians there are doing, and am challenged to follow their example in my own home town. 

My prayer for the Call2Compassion and Justice is that you will also be inspired by the work that you will see and hear about in Mumbai, that you’ll want to go back to your communities and follow the example of these churches, and that you’ll go home equipped to do so by the workshops that will take place during the conference. 

Please, join us in Mumbai - and encourage others to come with you on the journey. 

God bless,
