Equip

Every year, thousands of teams set off on short term trips to share the gospel. Language and cultural barriers can make clear communication of the gospel incredibly difficult. What if we could equip them to witness in an engaging and culturally relevant way? Equip makes sure to provide outreach teams with the tools and information necessary for them to be as effective as possible for the time they are on the field.

If you are involved in frontier missions, or you're preparing to go on a short term missions trip, you'll be aware of the challenges that are involved. You may find yourself asking questions like "How do I communicate the Gospel when I don't speak the language of the people I'm trying to reach? What are the cultural differences that I should be aware of? What resources are availble to help me reach out to this specific people group?"

Reverse the Curse - Marion

"...RTC currently employs 25 landmine victims who are viewed in Cambodian society as having got what they deserve through karma and most often end up begging on the street or making next to nothing in some sort of labour. Not long after beginning this project a few years ago, her staff began to ask about Jesus, and soon they were asking her about having a church. Now, most of her staff are coming back to their place of work on Sunday mornings for a church service, and deeper transformation is taking place..."

Art in Missions

"...I've always loved to draw, paint and create things and it came pretty naturally for me. I continued to develop drawing skills throughout my childhood and teen years. It's quite sad to admit but probably 50% of the time I spent learning to draw was during Math, Science and English class. I had this idea that I was going to be an animator or a children's book illustrator someday and figured I didn't need to worry about subjects that weren't relevant to my future..."

Music in Missions

"...I didn't just join this team because of the opportunity to make music. I joined because God, through this team, was opening my heart up to his love for me, and consequently for the world. I didn’t have a lot of passion for the Kingdom or a clear idea of what it was all about when I first joined, but through the relationships that were formed around a great purpose, I couldn’t help but eventually begin to get energized by the Perpetrator towards the purpose of bringing the Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven..."

Ny & Nin: Factory Made Family

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

Voices of Cambodia | Ny & Nin from Create Emerge on Vimeo.

A student production by John Thomson.
Media2Go – Documentary Training Seminar:

At Create Emerge, we’ve devoted ourselves to creatively telling stories of people modeling their lives after Jesus in places most people try to avoid. The news of these ordinary heroes rarely makes it into the mainstream media. Thousands of stories are out there waiting to be told: stories that challenge, educate, inspire, awaken, and provoke a response.

In early 2012, we took a team of 8 students to capture a few of these stories. One of the places we visited was Cambodian Harvest, a factory which employs landmine accident survivors. Ny & Nin: Factory Made Family’ directed by John Thomson (Australia) presents the story of a boy and his mother’s transition from despair to the hope they now hold for a better life.

Chek is no longer that woman, and she shows it in her beautiful smile.

A Day with a Midwife – Video

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

Early this year, I was able to go on outreach with the Birth Attendant School (BAS) from YWAM Perth. Leading up to our departure date, I realized this trip would be a perfect opportunity to make a film about what my wife Hollie and the rest of the team have been doing on the school for the past several years.

A co-worker and I spent some time in prayer and decided to film the project as a day ‘through the eyes’ of a BAS student. We arrived in India, began shooting, and before long the story started coming together. Our times of prayer were especially important in maintaining focus, bringing unity, and renewing passion. (Not that we didn’t struggle with all three of these areas regardless!)

Putting together the first half of the film seemed especially easy. I was very grateful that that part of the story flowed so well. The real challenge came as I started to put together the hospital sequence. We filmed quite a bit, but even so, the process was fairly new to me. Fortunately, I had a couple more months of outreach in a different location where I was able to put a lot of time into editing. Making this film was a challenge at times, but through the process, God has shown me much more about Himself and what He is doing to bring life to those who are suffering.

Since the film has been online, I have had a number of very encouraging comments. I was told of one young girl that heard of the film through one of the BAS staff, watched it, and decided that she wants to be a birth attendant in missions! My hope is that many more people will see the film and discover that it is possible for anyone to get out there where people are in need and make a difference. The kingdom of God is built up through many small acts of selfless love. The women of the BAS are great examples of that.

Pacific Link – Open Day

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

Since our last entry, the Pacific Link has left the Queen’s Wharf in Wellington and is on it’s way down to Dunedin. During its brief stay in the ‘Windy City’ our Youth Connection Team made it down to the dock for a tour, and we got to see first hand the amazing work that Marine Reach is involved in throughout the South Pacific.

You can check out the full details of the ship and the Marine Reach ministry at www.marinereachministries.com, but here are some interesting insights into life on board the Pacific Link. How about doing one load of laundry per week? For a colour separator like me that would be a challenge! There is a desalinator on board creating one ton of fresh water per day, but when you’re sharing that with the rest of the crew, that limits you to a 60 second shower, with a few extra drips, if you’re lucky.

But the real heart of the ship is the health clinic. When docked in Fiji, Samoa, or Tonga, the clinic becomes the ship’s main hive of activity with people coming from all over to receive free treatment. The operating room specializes in ophthamology and dentistry but has many resources to provide people with primary health care as well. Those with vision problems are also able to receive donated glasses.

Above: Images from the Pacific Link Open Day in Wellington

The amazing thing is Marine Reach New Zealand is giving their ship away to YWAM Australia, enabling them start a similar nautical ministry to Papua New Guinea. Marine Reach is embarking on an inspiring voyage of faith, trusting that God will provide another ship.

If you want to be a part of the Pacific Link farewell in New Zealand you are welcome to come tour the ship during it’s “Open Days” when it docks in the following locations:

Engaging Hope – Becca

Friday, July 10th, 2009

If you’ve managed to get a hold of the Engage DVDs, then you’ve probably met Becca. She’s the birth attendant who sings. She recently returned from a trip with her team which took them to South East Asia as well as West Africa for a number of months. Here’s a story, in her own words,  from her time in Africa:

It’s good to be here. It’s really good. There are gorgeous tree-covered mountains that surround the city (that feels like a big village with dirt roads and visible waterfalls) and we’re getting the students started at two hospitals in the area. The first birth we assisted with was a mother who is living with HIV. Hope continues to be confessed in exile. The hospital is small with a very low level of equipment, but the midwives we work with are full of life.

I was checking on the staff and students in the labour room who were assisting the midwife, and arrived just in time to see a baby born blue and limp. We rushed him to the theatre and did our best effort at resuscitation despite only having the equipment that our team had in our labour room bag. After 30 minutes he took his first spontaneous breath and after an hour was transferred to a larger hospital. I went to visit him and his mother, a beautiful woman called Sabina, at the regional hospital and he was in the intensive care unit, but breathing really well. The nurses said he had greatly improved in the night and have a lot of hope that he will recover.

There’s really nothing as terrible as seeing a baby born without the great cry of deliverance that is meant to come. This week I’ve been thinking about Jesus, born into the world in such vulnerability – God’s great confession of hope, His own bearing of a child in exile. The students that helped with the resuscitation and vocally interceded the whole time caught a clear glimpse of why we do this – of the battle that surrounds each birth and the invitation of God to be people that will engage those terrible moments with hope and compassion and action.”
