Between Pain and Horror: 

  In these last months in Colombia many painful things have happened, I think that the heart of God is hurting with the barbarism that man have against man, we don't have a clear language to express this whole ordeal in which man kills man.



In the municipality of Bojayá in the department of Choco in the month of May there was a confrontation among the guerrilla and paramilitary (armed groups at the margin of the law), the civil population is amid the crossfire and hundred nineteen people die while forty six of them were children;  of the children that survived, most of them lost their parents, I believe that those that lost more are the children while they lost their beloved and they are left in this world without hope, without education, without protection and without future. Recently I was reading in the book of Lamentations 2:19 "Arise, cry out in the night: in the beginning of the watches pour out thine heart like water before the face of the Lord: lift up thy hands toward him for the life of thy young children, that faint for hunger in the top of every street." Here one can feel the pain God has for the mistreated children, the Bible also says that the Lord’s desire is that the children live in a family. We as Institution want to open a house specialy for orphans of war, where we can offer protection, education and a better future for these children, pray for qualified, committed personnel and for finances to begin this work.

NEW PRESIDENT OF COLOMBIA. 

May 26, 2002 Colombia chose her new president, with a historical voting of 5.829.958 of 11.250. 000 voters, that is to say 53% went to the candidate Álvaro Uribe Vélez’s favor.  The Political Analysts think that this man knew the critical moment that Colombia experiences to take advantage, presenting a Political Project against corruption, empty-politics and the Guerrilla, of what the tired and desperate people saw in Uribe, the solution to this difficult situation. Our prayer to the Lord is that the new President won't fail those whom voted for him.

This year the school adventure has been the biggest challenge for Bethel these months; waking up early in the morning, preparing for school, doing homework. . . Aunty I need 12 notebooks, pencils, pencil sharpener, notebook. . . and good quality, Ah! And a schoolbag. . . I need it right now Aunty!! And a week later they no longer have notebooks. . . we don't know where they learned to make airplanes and ships; what a chaos. . . thanks to God the fashion of making airplanes and ships has passed, and have learned to value and to take care of the school utilities.

With sadness we tell you that of the 18 children that entered to the Institution at the beginning of this year, 5 have left; their families took the decision of taking them back. The work with the parents has begun, we have had several trainings, a lot of interest is found in some of them.


Most of the children have taken big steps to enter the normal process, it has not been easy; but with the help of God they have been able to achieve it. One is working the phisical dimension and aesthetics in the children, strengthening abilities and dexterities in the field of the sport and arts; discovering talents in the handiworks with clay and painting.

We are grateful, because God has been faithful and has been responding to our prayers; one of those is that we now have among our personnel the Psychologist Elizabeth Saavedra and a psychological program began with the children. 

We are putting much effort into living in harmony together, to be grateful and to every day bring joy to the heart of our Lord Jesus.

We are grateful to God, for his diverse Grace, Care and Support; His support has been primordial.  To Him be the glory.  We want to share the received blessings and the way God is moving in the hearts of the adolescent youths of the II Stage:
Camilo y Jonathan
Camilo y Jonathan

Jonathan Puerta, is validating and he is in fifth grade, he is the best in the group, God is shining in a wonderful way in his life.

 

Camilo Viloria, in fifth grade was named person of the School and his work is to look after the well-being of the Educational Community, one of the projects is to gather groceries to distribute to the poor families of the school.
Pisina

The other children continue well in their social process; it is clear that some are better than others, but they are youth that have already begun to visualize and to reaffirm their goals of life.  We have begun to give doctrinal studies according to the questions they have as youths, the important thing is that they are secure in their relationship with God and grow with a reverent fear and respect, so that they are responsible with themselves and the others.

In the Formative Process of the Program, a group of adolescents is enjoying a series of workshops, where they analyze their future and what is the perspective of their life.  What do they want to do and how will they achieve their goals? We have begun with eight of them, the understanding of occupational, labor therapy and the respective learning in Institutions as El SENA and Alternative Programs of Informatica and English, to facilitate work tools.

Mi primera nieta de visita

Very good was the qualification with which the girls finished their first academic period. The girl Natalia Andrea, decided April 9, to return to her family; nine months of process that we trust God, were she will give fruit, although it is not in our hands. 

Norms and schedules are completed voluntarily and most of the time with a lot of cordiality, since no difficulty delays for the grace of God.  

We were blessed by the Swedish youth whom also experienced the challenge of serving God with us.  They are: Helen Ohgren, Karin Andersson, Helga Therese and Robert Tornkvizt.  We also give thanks to God, for the technician and professional photographer that it is among us, Daniel Huisman.We congratulate for their birthdays; Sandra Velásquez, Diana Sepúlveda, Saidy Manco, Elvia Rodelo and Alba Oviedo.

It has been very beautiful and satisfactory continuing the work in our dressmaking shop and handiworks. Since we can see God produce a radical change in the life of each one of these beautiful people. Being able to see and to listen what God speaks to us in Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.



Our biggest yearning is to continue working in a personalized and complete discipleship and in daily sharing with each one of them; We can make known the love and the character of God which helps us to continue developing a sense of value and good principles.





I want to give thanks to God for His provision in each of the things that He has provided us with as much physicaly as spiritualy. For this work it is very important to have the support and the help of people that are willing to give and to work for God. 

In this semester we have been able to reach the families of the children presenting our training project and it has been well received, thanks to the support we have received from: Bible societies with the necessary materials for the realization of a complete discipleship and in the same way thanks to the people whom have helped us economically with the purchase of sowing machines and material for the handiworks. Prov. 4:8-9

"DTS Outreach"             Jhon Jairo is an Adolescent 13 years old.  He is a youth with emptyness in his life like many that live in Angostura a small town of Antioquia. Many times we saw him sceptical and with certain jeer while carrying out our work. He stayed a lot in the house which was in front of where we were staying.  We made a first contact with him and it was not so significant.  Several who were in the team prayed to God that we wanted to see him in one of the meetings that we were organizing.  It was very special to see him on Sunday attending the mornings meeting, more so he attended a discpleship class with the Pastor leading it; and still more special was to see him sitting with us on the porch of the house, listening to songs one night before going to evangelism in town.  He was much animated, and that night he made deeper friendship with a team member and he opened his heart so that we could pray for him. 

Many of us call this "To Make History", we see faces, but we don't know hearts, never the less all that God wants to do in each person. 

 




In total we left Medellín with 13 people. The first week we divided ourselves in two teams, into two villages, Angostura and Campamento. Angostura a strongly religious village and Campamento a village hit by violence. 

During those days we learned a lot, while seeing the hand of God in each situation, looking for His strategies, listening to His voice, for not acting in our own strenght. 

Then we left for "Jardin", a very nice town, that fits its name, because everywhere we went we found houses adorned with pretty flowers. 

Since we arrived, it was encouraging knowing that the Parish priest of the town had signed a letter which enabled us to be able to work with the students in several schools, giving lessons focused on sexuality.  For this we used a very useful video that is called "sex, lies and truth". We made contact with at least five hundred students (among children, adolescents and youths), enjoying course for course, and this only speaking of four schools. 

In a prayer time we had as a group, several of us received a word from God, that He was with us and that we would see His glory.  Literally it has been this way; doors have opened up, opportunities have been given, for example; we got airtime of one hour on a radio station to give a teaching about interpersonal relationships, and what God thinks in this respect, specific words have been shared for the problem that each youth is living, and the teaching about the sexuality have been a connection to be able to share the purpose of God for each human being. 

What do you think? . . . God is Good, right?, and the more we serve Him, the more we realize how much there is to do.

God through time has used the scientific and technological advances for the expansion of His Kingdom; Printing,  Ships, Airplanes, Computer, Internet,  Television and the Telephone, are some of the most important examples. 

And now God has allowed us to use videoconferencing to speedup the missionary training.   This system allows us to connect to more than two classes to interact with as if we were in the same place, this way we can have classes, times of intercession, praise and worship and sharing ideas together, no matter in which continent each group is. 


For us as YWAM Medellín it was very difficult to think of having this ministry, because the costs of equipment is high, but last January we received the news that somebody had donated us a basic set for videoconferencing. Until now we have already carried out several conferences, we had a meeting with Barbados with the international director of GENESIS, we also had a connection of two hours with the base of YWAM Amsterdam for a multi cultural meeting and we also listened to a conference of Loren Cunninghan from Buenos Aires Argentina.   

Prayer reasons:   

For the purchase of a Videobeam   

For donors for the ministry.

 

Our desire is now to see more bases of YWAM Colombia connected to this net and this way to break all the barriers that we have around countries, continents, color, language and race.


GENESIS is the name of this ministry. It is an acronym in English which means Global Electronic Net for Education Serving and Inspiring Students.

This year we began with three clear objectives for this group of 33 kids, the first one is that they get a better knowledge of God and a better relationship with Him, the second objective is that they can grow in His character and the third that they can understand what is the purpose of their life or what is the calling that God has for each of them. 

To achieve these objectives, we have a weekend camp every month where we teach them topics on the character of God, inner sanity, obedience and many others that help us to reach the previously mentioned goals.  We have also programmed different visits to poor neighborhoods of the city, days of neighborhood cleaning and evangelism.  




We have also had a seminar for the families of the King’s Kids and some meetings where we treated some of the most frequent problems and pray for them.  

Next month we will travel to Armenia, a city 6 hours from Medellín, there we will be for 10 days sharing in the streets, park and churches through choreographies. 

Prayer reasons: 

· For protection on the outings. 

· Finances for new uniforms 

· Fosterparents for children of poor families. 

· Sound system.
