Taylor is an 18 year old American who finished his DTS with YWAM in Bangkok. He decided to come and spend some time serving with us in Ratchaburi before returning home to continue on with his university degree. We love having volunteers like Taylor and have been really blessed by his openness and willingness to serve the community in Ratchaburi. Taylor has also found something that he is passionate about that we were not yet involved in and he has taken the chance to dive in and start a brand new ministry all on his own. Taylor speaks of his experience with YWAM Ratchaburi below:
"My favorite ministry that I am involved with is the break-dancing ministry that I started. During my DTS my outreach team went to Pitsanulok and we got the chance to evangelize and fellowship with a local break-dancing crew. God blessed my time there very much and gave me opportunities to develop relationships and speak truth into a few lives. Coming to Racthaburi I was sad that I wouldn’t be getting the chance to work with break-dancers. Little did I know God had another plan. My first week here I saw a break-dancing crew and exchanged numbers and now I go and spend time with them four times a week.
My time with them has been amazing. In such a short time I have been able to build strong relationships with many of them. They are beginning to open up to me about struggles in their lives, and God has given me opportunities to show His love to them. This week I had a dinner with them. At the dinner I had a chance to share the gospel with them as well as give my testimony. I got to know them better and look forward to more opportunities to share with them.
Please keep my friends in your prayers and pray that God gives me opportunities and courage to share his amazing love to them."
