Carrie Johnson
Our Friends in Ministry
God has blessed us with friends from all over the world that are following Jesus.  They encourage us with their faith and we would love for you to meet them!
We met the beautiful Malanin family while in New Zealand and then spent 2 months with them in Australia on outreach.  We love these guys and are blessed to know them.  God has called them to Siberia to work with YWAM in Russia.  Please shoot them an email of encouragement as God leads.
Carrie was another one of my first youth group kids.  In 2005, she was part of our team that went to Venezuela.  God has really captured her heart and now her entire life pours out the love of Jesus.  She was just recently in Turkey, Egypt and now in Tanzania.  She encourages us daily!
House of Prayer-Bemidji
When we are not in our hometown of Bemidji, we greatly miss our home church.  Pastor Mike & House of Prayer have so greatly encouraged, trained & equipped us for ministry. I don't often hear people say they love their church, but we truly do LOVE our church!  More on Bemidji HOP.

YWAM Idaho Mission Adventures
Mike & Erin run the outfitting side of Camp Rock Ridge. They use the great outdoors, specifically the Boundary Waters Canoe Area as a tool to share the Gospel.  To see more about their camp and ministry, go here...
Our Mission Adventures staff here at YWAM Idaho really love Jesus.  As staff they don't get paid.  In fact they pay to be here to minister to young people.  Most of our staff have ministered in Northern India and have a great heart for fulfilling the Great Commission.  More on YWAM Idaho...

YWAM New Zealand-Family Ministry
YWAM New Zealand-Pursuits DTS
When God called us to sell what we had and move overseas He led us to do a Family Discipleship Training School in Matamata, New Zealand.  There our lives were changed by amazing teaching and incredible friendships.  There are very few places in the world that are as dear to us as this amazing ministry.  We highly recommend all families to pray about giving up 5 months of their life to grow closer to Jesus and to each other.  More on YWAM New Zealand and their Family DTS.  
While living in New Zealand we had the great privilege of meeting many people staff and students from YWAM Zion.  Their heart for the Lord and desire to see young people set free from the traps of the world is contagious.  We love them and love what they do!  More on YWAM ZION...
Riwai Haenga
Riwai Haenga works with YWAM Crystal Springs in New Zealand.  He is one of the most gentle and loving men I have ever met.  Whether it's in the kitchen, mowing the yard or serenading the little kids with his guitar, Riwai serves as if he is serving Jesus Himself.  He is a native Maori man from New Zealand and is very dear to our hearts.  If you are interested in supporting him financially and/or in prayer, please contact us!
