Idaho Update

In September 2012, 6 men from the Carpentry Apprenticeship went to YWAM Cascade, Idaho to help their ministry with various construction projects. We roofed 7 buildings, installed 4 windows into existing buildings, sheeted a storage room after tying it onto the existing building, and installed hot water heater pans.

We left Montana on Monday at 5am, arrived at 3pm and started working. By 7pm their staff were commenting on how we’d gotten more done on that day than previous teams had done in a week! This is a testimony to the high caliber of training our guys have, their intense work ethic and their desire to serve God well. It was amazing to see our newest apprentice, Crosby, starting his first week with us with an outreach. The other guys taught him so much in that one week that his confidence and skills grew exponentially. Helping another YWAM base to have the facilities to be able to train and send people to the nations was a real blessing.

Personally, I was impacted by our ability to use construction and carpentry as a missions platform – serving, giving and showing the love of Christ, all while pounding nails and laying roofing metal.

Ready to make the jump.

At YWAM Montana-Lakeside, we are all about doing whatever it takes to know God and to make Him known, together! We’d love to help you make that next step in your global missions education. Apply now!
