Update from the Baileys
Hey faith-family! We are YWAM Ships Staff officially!
We are in Corpus Christi, feet on the ground!
From November when we saw and heard the PEACE of the Lord over this move and ministry, to seeing this dream become a reality blows our minds! 
Getting settled has been an adjustment as we moved into a travel trailer, needless to say!
So, what does it mean that we are officially on staff here in Corpus?
Well, it means we have comrades, a team and they are becoming family to us already!
We aren't lonely! Our kids have instant friends in this ministry team.
We meet together every Monday to worship God, pray over the week and discuss what outreach or business needs to be done! Thursdays we have community night where we fellowship, worship and eat together. And throughout the week we are making connections in the city, in churches, we're out with the homeless, and whatever else the Lord leads us in.

The mission and (long term) goal of YWAM Ships Corpus Christi is to train, send and sail missionaries on vessels to the remote islands of the world! Yet, we are a new ministry being pioneered and dont have a vessel. Behind the scenes, we trust that the Lord is making one ready to serve the purpose for missions to the nations! So, in the mean time our team will discover the needs of our community and serve locally! This summer we will target the lonely and also the youth of the city!
As time is short we want to be ready in this season to be the hands + feet of Christ right here, right now! To build the Kingdom. To be salt + light!

As we go forward, we are believing God to build this because He is the Author of this story!
And "Unless the Lord builds the house, those who labor, labor in vain.." Psalm 127

What being on Staff does NOT mean.. It does not mean that anyone gets paid. We are all individuals or families that are fully supported by a "faith-family" (Friends, family, even strangers, at times!) This means we took a huge leap of faith to be here as we are still paying our mortgage back home! BUT We are under a contract now! So, thankfully the double payments wont be weighing on us much longer! We appreciate any support and all the prayers for us in this time of transition!

If you do feel led in this moment to join our team and come aboard, it would be perfect timing! Find our website at www.go4missions.com and the Give page will show you the options for giving!

 
Moriah's boldness is bringing people closer to Jesus!! Would you pray for my kids to catch the vision of God for their lives! They are reaching out and they see God is busy and we know He wants to use them for His own purposes! 
The Holy Spirit is stirring in the youth of this city! And we're getting involved in what God is already doing!
Pictured above: 
A power-packed mini team, worshipping on the beach, that came in for a week to love on the lost!
A day of Bible reading at the park with our new team!
Community night at the beach, complete with a fire, smores and worship!



Would you pray?
Pray for God connections in this city! 

Pray for our house to close on time and for a safe trip back to Loraine next week for the final steps, signing the closing documents!!

We are still believing God to bring more monthly partners to our faith-journey!
(​Visit our website to see how you can join our monthly team!)

This vision is bigger than any of us could tackle on our own, as a team, bigger than one church, or even one city! This requires the miracle working God on multiple levels! So will you guys join us in this and partner in prayer? Will you go even further and partner with us financially? 
   ➡️hit reply and let us know how we can pray for you⬅️
We appreciate you guys and hope you all have an awesome summer!

Love, The Bailey crew
