God of miracles - YWAM Athens

God has yet again shown us in YWAM Athens that He is a God of miracles and faithfulness!

Athens was invaded yet again with the outreach “YWAM United”, 300 people in outreach teams mainly from bases around in California. We had an incredible time with them and saw many people come to the Lord. They who received Jesus were taken to churches, where they can get fellowship with others.

This is a brief list of what we saw:

* Salvations -73
Healings -142
* Bibles -481
* Baptisms -15 
* Haircuts -60
* 5- camps we shared the gospel
* 2- families got into housing
* Preached at a terrorist camp
* 50 -scarves handed out
* 40+ Gift bags
* So much discipleship 
* Make overs
* Hosted people in homes for meals 
* Deliverances
* Many pickpocketers stopped
* 130 gifts given to women in white light district (brothels) 
* Soup distribution 
* 300 lbs of food 
* Murals painted
* Helped someone start a business 
* Help resource jobs
* Refurnished houses
* Paint projects
* Played with so many kids
Art ministry

The most radical healing happened on the metro with one of our guys (Kostas) who received Jesus in November. Kostas was together with a leader from California when the metro stopped and announced that a man had gotten a heart attack. Over the speaker they asked if there was a doctor on board. Our new believer, Kostas, was sure that God is the alternate doctor and the leader followed him to find the man that was unconscious. When they found the man, he didnt have any pulse, but Kostas took his hand and prayed out loud in Greek. The man that were unconscious opened his eyes and was immediately healed and brought back to life!!

YWAM Thessaloniki and YWAM Athens is getting registered

YWAM will be called Νεοι με Αποστολι (NEMA) in Greece. We signed the papers that start the process on the 9th of March. It will be the first time YWAM has ever been registered in Greece. We feel that it is important for us to register legally, to put a «stake in the ground», to show that we are not moving away from Greece. This time we trust God for that YWAM/NEMA will be established in Greece after several attempts in the past.

It will also potentially solve a lot of the problems we are facing for our Non-European long-term staff. We will hopefully have the registration done by the beginning of May 2018. Please stand together with us in prayer and pray for us that this process will be completed, and we will get the legal registration done.
