Opportunities to Help
One of YWAM Santa Fe’s biggest ministries has been to come along side others in their ministries. We aim to support these ministries through our time, prayers, and fund raising.
One of our fellow missionaries for years has been Jennifer Bullock. She joined our staff and served our music courses, photographed our events and managed tours. She also introduced us to ministry in Honduras. In 2015 Jen formed her own ministry called Corazón de Dios. Until she completed the non-profit application, YWAM Santa Fe kept Jen and her ministry under our umbrella. It is now a government recognized 501c3 organization and functioning on it’s own. Jen has hosted several mission trips for us in Honduras. One of her main ministries has been caring for malnourished children and teaching their parents how to keep them healthy. Right now she is in the US with a special needs child named Sulmi. This child is undergoing treatment for her conditions and needs prayer. If you are not familiar with this ministry and would like to learn more about Jen and support her work, check out their website www.corazondedios.org and /or her FaceBook page. There are photos and videos on her FB page that will melt your heart.
Joy Nwodo is from Nigeria and a University student in Santa Fe. She attends my church and told us about her father, Reverend Augustine Nwodo, who had been diagnosed with cancer. Nigeria has limited medical facilities to treat him. He is getting Chemo there which is several thousand dollars but long term he will need to go to India for treatment. Since I am involved in mission activity in Nigeria I felt I should help this family. YWAM Santa Fe is helping this family by raising funds for Reverend Nwodo to go to India for medical help he needs. The airfares, lodging and medical treatment will cost close to $35,000. Please pray for Reverend Nwodo and consider helping with this great need by donating to him through YWAM Santa Fe. He has had a very effective ministry for years and is praying God will allow him to return to that ministry. You may donate here and designate your donation as “Benevolence Funds.”
