I Shall Call You

I heard God saying “Louis your wonderful work will begin with YWAM Port Of Peace.”

A long time ago God sent a lady from the Dominican Republic to give me a message. She shared a passage of scripture with me from Isaiah.

“Behold, you shall call a nation that you do not know, and a nation that did not know you shall run to you, because of the Lord your God, and of the Holy One of Israel, for he has glorified you.” Isaiah 55:5

I will be honest and admit, after she shared this with me, I did not understand exactly what God was trying to tell me. Though the lady said to me “Trust God and He will go forward with you!”. I kept this in the back of my mind and continued to put my trust in the Lord.

Fast forward to my DTS this past fall. DTS with YWAM Port De Paix was great! I learned lots and my faith grew immensely. I spent a lot of time seeking God, asking Him what would be next. What the lady told me came to mind and I prayed about it. Then I heard the Lord deep within my heart say “Louis I need you to go to Port De Paix with YWAM. Teach my children and youth there and sing my praise”.

​After this I prayed, sought out wise counsel, asked questions… and in return found a multitude of answers and confirmations.

Wow God is faithful. I am excited to now officially say that I have been accepted as a staff member with YWAM Port De Paix! God still moving forward with me even though I didn’t realize that Isaiah 55:5 would drive me there. I am beyond excited to get to Port De Paix soon and see all that God does!

As many parents can attest, it is not easy to raise faithful children in this fallen world.   We pray for them, we read the Bible to them, and memorize scripture with them. We take them to small group, youth group, AWANA, church camp.   And we wonder….. is it enough?...
