Perspective On Missions: Why Jbay?

Jeffrey’s Bay or as the locals call it Jbay is in the Kouga region of the Eastern Cape, which is known as the Jewel of this province. Jeffrey’s Bay is known for the best right hand surf breaks in the world and for its beautiful beaches. It is known as one of the biggest surfing towns in South Africa, but there is much more to it than that.

Amazing stories of our precious missionaries from around the world

  • Word by heart seminar

    Word by heart seminar

    After arriving at six in the morning we started the seminar at nine forty five. The people were eager to learn how to memorize scripture but were very theologically trained which was a challenge at the beginning. Once we opened their eyes to be creative with the stories to help them remember, they opened up and enjoyed the next couple of days. They told the story of the Emmaus road.We had a presentation with a youth group at Victory church and the response was incredible! Students were coming up and talking about how their eyes were opened to how personal and interesting the scriptures are. Annalie and I formed friendship with many from that group. The next day we had another, shorter seminar and many from the youth group came hungry for the word. They took it by storm and we all had a great time. It was one of the best seminars we have had.Not only did we meet new people but the outreach team from Amsterdam we had met in Wocester came to Jeffries Bay a few days after us. It was good to be with so many amazing people who are all desperately in love with Jesus. Due to the short span of our time in Jeffries Bay we didn’t do much outside of ministry. Jerome, a base staff, graciously took me surfing which I greatly have missed since I left South Africa. Many people whom we have met I dearly hope to see again and they will always have a place in my heart. To find out more about Word by heart schools/seminars : www.wordbyheart.org
  • Open Nights

    Open Nights

    YWAM Jbay started "Open Nights" with the aim to allow anyone to walk into the presence of God and feel welcome, refreshed and find healing and encouragement. Through free coffee and tea and conversations, people can come as they are and be met with a God who loves them unconditionally. We hope to see more and more people walk in and be transformed by the radical love of Jesus. Last Friday was our first "Open Night" a McTasty's Diner, we are in partnership with them as they offered for us to use their premises once a month.

    YWAM Amsterdam 2016

    The team from YWAM Amsterdam learned to serve with their hands as we started a "dish-washing" ministry. We offer to come alongside the Pellsrus Primary School to help distribute food and do the dishes. There are about 1200 students in that school and the team washed more than 900 plates, spoons and scrubbed the big pots. It is a way for us to learn to serve and show love by helping practically. Instead of spending the whole day doing it, our team finished in approximatively 2hrs. All of this with a smile on their faces and a lot of joy. Way to go team!
  • YWAM Louisville

    YWAM Louisville

    YWAM Louisville had the privilege of doing the opening assembly for the new highschool in Jeffrey's Bay. This highschool is a merge in between a Colored and Xhosa speaking schools. The team did worship, and encouraged the students to work in unity. As the principal came on stage to start the year off with welcoming all the new students and asking the older children to set an example for them. This school is in need of a lot of prayer as the merging of two schools isn't that easy. The team was the first to see an open door to minister in Jeffrey's Bay Highschool. We look forward to other opportunities in the future.
  • Kynzie, YWAM Chico, California

    Kynzie, YWAM Chico, California

    Thursday might have been one of the most amazing days of ministry here in South Africa so far...God keeps reminding us that although we have less than a week left of ministry, He still has big plans for us. Our team had the opportunity to be guests on a local radio station. We got to talk about what we have been doing during outreach, and just share encouraging words with the listeners. There are over 350,000 listeners on this radio station, and it was so cool to see the way that God worked through each one of us to convey a message to the listeners.
  • Andrew, Burtigny DTS, Switzerland

    Andrew, Burtigny DTS, Switzerland

    Our first team since reopening the base.A student from Burtigny DTS was ministering in Ocean View and felt to pray for this man who was deeply distressed and filled with anger and wanting to take revenge for something that had happened. After the prayer it appeared that this man had a gun and had the intention to use it but God intervened through this brave student and brought peace and this man yielded his gun to the local pastor and decided not to take revenge anymore.
