During spring break this year, I joined a group of friends and went to YWAM Myrtle Beach. I wasn't sure what to expect during this time, but I knew we would be involved in evangelism. I was fearful of that. When I shared with my friends and my new YWAM family that fear quickly went away!!! The truthful and loving response I received from them combatted the lie I was believing. I was afraid I would get it all wrong. That fear (lie) was causing me to not trust the Holy Spirit in me to speak through me. Once I was made aware of that lie, my confidence, trust and belief was restored! Hallelujah!! The most amazing thing from this trip is that the Lord radically set me free from fear, doubt, anger, unforgiveness, mistrust, unworthiness, and judgment all in one week! Amazing!!
YWAM encouraged me and others to be transparent with each other and vulnerable to the Spirit. The trip was life changing for me because it made the Christian lifestyle so much more attractive to me. I am used to seeing many people treat Christianity as if it is just a religion, not a relationship. Following Jesus is a loving and joyful decision, relationship and lifestyle. It is NEVER BORING! YWAM Myrtle Beach welcomed my friends and me with nothing but love and they made us feel so comfortable to ask questions, suggest ideas, and just be ourselves.
YWAM is a wonderful organizations that I may want to be a part of one day. I recommend YWAM, but particularly Myrtle Beach because that is where my life radically changed and my hunger for Jesus grew even more!
