“I will remember the deeds of the LORD;
yes, I will remember your wonders”
- Psalm 77:11 ESV -

The pace of life is getting faster each year. At least it’s what it feels like when we stop to reflect on the year 2022. However, our lives are filled with thankfulness as we highlighted God’s faithfulness all the way. Through many of the psalms and prophets, we are urged to REMEMBER. “Remember the works of His hands…” While writing this Newsletter, we are amazed at how much we could witness Him at work on so many levels. None of these events, programs, and testimonies would be possible without His vision, guidance, blessing, and presence.

So as we “remember His wonders”, all glory to Him!
Revive and Reach DTS
The year started with the conclusion of our second Revive and Reach DTS. What a privilege it was to lead and champion 30 young people, seeing them grow deeper in their walk with the Lord, saying yes to Him in every aspect of their lives. God moved in a great way in and through each one of them, also on outreach to Togo and Tanzania.
Worship Ministry Growth
For many years we have invested and carried the ministry of Worship here at YWAM Lausanne. This year we have seen great growth in our team, not only in numbers but also in heart, purpose, teamwork, and deepening our pursuit of God in Worship. Our new music studio, worship events, prayer room, our School of Worship, the hunger for God’s presence in our community were some of the highlights of 2022.
Kingdom Come Events
For some time we sense early signs of a spiritual awakening in Switzerland. As we were seeking the Lord, especially for our region (French-speaking part), He placed on our hearts to bring the life of our YWAM Lausanne community into the city. That vision led to the creation of “Kingdom Come”, a monthly event in the city of Lausanne, with a missional focus around Worship, the Word, and spirit-filled fellowship around the Table. The launch of this initiative this year has fired us up in much faith as we anticipate 2023. 
Regen Outreach Restarted
After two years hiatus due to Covid, it was a joy to see Regen Outreach resume in 2022. We definitely felt some challenges and realized how Covid has impacted the Montreux Music Festival, where we have ministered for 17 years. But what was intended for evil, God used for better. Through divine connections, wisdom, and favor, we completed our outreach. Our teams reported over 500 intentional conversations about God and faith, prayed for about 300 people, over 150 bibles given out in conversations, and expressed God’s beauty through hospitality and the arts to thousands of people.
Here is a video recap of the 2022 edition
Expansion and Multiplication
We can't thank God enough for His favor and faithfulness to us at YWAM Lausanne. In spite of the challenges through Covid, we experience one of the greatest times of expansion and growth. This fall we have over 140 students from 25 nations. The multiplication of our courses with a focus on Bible engagement is another highlight of this year. To see this generation intimately engaging with the Word of God is a personal passion in our hearts, and so exciting to see many responding and taking steps to know His word.

Help us launch into 2023

Our hearts are extremely thankful for those who faithfully and generously partner with us. Without your prayers and support, none of this would be possible. In the last few months, we have faced a few personal challenges that have especially impacted our finances. We have experienced great generosity and timely provision for some of the urgent needs caused by this. As we approach the end of the year, we are still trusting God for provision.

Looking ahead, we would like to invite you to prayerfully consider making an end-of-the-year gift to help us launch into 2023, to cover some of our ministry and personal expense, as well as help us with the remaining needs as we close this year. Any amount is a huge help and a blessing for our family and ministry. 

Thank you so much for all your love, prayers, and support!
