YESTERDAY I visited the YWAM (Youth With A Mission) medical ship which is currently in Newcastle, New South Wales, to raise awareness of YWAM’s amazing work in Papua New Guinea.
The ship is manned entirely by volunteers including specialists doctors.
YWAM is planning to purchase a new and larger ship so it can expand its operations with far better outreach capabilities.
To purchase the new ship, YWAM needs to raise more than $6 million dollars. Once purchased, the vessel will be converted into a medical ship with the capability of reaching many isolated villages.
