What is the next thing you need to do?

We usually don’t plan well for crisis situations unless we work in crisis regularly . We were going to Phuket to spread the ashes of a dear friend on one of her favorite beaches. She had lost a two year battle to cancer. By the time we reached the Sarasin Bridge from the mainland to the Island, people were everywhere. We did not know that just a few hours earlier, a massive tsunami had struck six provinces in Southern Thailand. What were we to do?

The Beautiful, All-encompassing Kingdom of God

What an amazing one day shot in Bangkok from Phil Porter – national leader of YWAM Thailand about what the Kingdom of God looks like in all of its diversity….


Last Sunday was one of those classic, unforgettable days of being grateful to be called to be a missionary! Such an incredible, rich experience of the Kingdom of God in its fullness.
Singing in the choir at Christ Church alongside a new friend, Stephen, along with others from Nigeria, the Philippines, Ireland, etc. Meeting Stephen’s visiting friends from the States who recently adopted a 3-year-old girl from Ethiopia. Listening to a very thought-provoking sermon by a British pastor from Maylasia, who reminded us that Jesus’s 3 individual healings in Matthew 8 were of a leper, a Gentile and a woman – all less-than-worthy people in those days. Then watching the baptism of 5 new believers from 2 or 3 different countries. . . .

Many people had warned us and said it was too dangerous to enter Afghanistan, but we knew that if we would not go into a country where we were recruiting people to serve, we had no right to recruit them.

Steve Goode and Marie Bentley, high-school sweethearts from Tennessee, couldn’t have imagined all they would see through multiple decades of service to the poor and oppressed. Never shying away from God’s call, they have served in refugee camps and war zones and lived through personal illnesses and struggles. As long-term leaders of Youth With A Mission’s mercy ministries and efforts against human trafficking in Southeast Asia and beyond, Steve and Marie have brought healing and hope to thousands of people and continue to inspire others to do the same.

The path that the Goodes take us down in this book is exhilarating. Their practical blend of justice and spirituality propel them to Afghanistan, Thailand, India, Africa, and a thousand destinations in-between. Readers better prepare to have their hearts broken and their spirits lifted at the same time.”
– David Batstone, cofounder and president Not For Sale
