GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD
OUR DESIRE and heart for ministry and missions brought us together. Angelique was 17 when she went for three months to Nigeria to assist a nurse from the USA who worked in a very remold and isolated area, far, far away from the west. When we met each other we could talk for hours about ministry and mission.
MISSION TRIPS. After we married we started to organize misson trips for young people. We were pretty young ourselves when we brought teams with teeangers to Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Belarus, Ukraine and Russia. We bought a big bus with 50 seats and we traveled with teams and music groups to all those places. Now, many years later, we have been in more than 46 nations.
LOVE PEOPLE MORE
Love people more than anything else. If we love people, it wil effect everything: how we do things, the way we talk and move. Love is so powerful. We want to be love driven, to love God, to love our neighbors and to love ourselves. In the Bible is a story about a rich man. Jesus looked at him and He loved him, then Jesus said: “Go home, sell everything you have. Come back and follow me”.
We pray for another wave of young missionaries going into the world. We believe that God will call many and sent them in teams across the globe. We have been travelling with many teams to the ends of the earth. Teams with teenagers, young people and cross generational teams. We are still passionate to travel with teams into the nations to share the love of Jesus.
We often travel to places where YWAM’ers are pioneering. Most of them need encouragement. It does not take a lot and it is not difficult to visit pioneering misionaries. Just go, meet, worship, party, eat, fellowship and reachout together. We have seen amazing things and it is such a blessing for those that pioneer, but also for the visiting team. Just go, be blessed and be a blessing to the nations.
More than 30 years of ministry in more then 20 nations & 15 years with YWAM
Freek & Angelique
God has called us for global ministry. With all our heart and all our love for Him we choose to walk in obedience to His call. We are able to do so because of partners that want to partner with us in the harvest and the call that Gods has on our lives. YWAM works with volunteers, this means that YWAM doesn't give a salary. Our ministry and all our mission trips are funded by those who partner with us in His call for us to reach the nations.
