A Minor Social Media Tsunami – Follow Campaign

By YWAM Newcastle on July 3, 2013 in News


Sunday was an amazing day. Many of our staff community and others were gathered at the warehouse, communicating urgently online and creating a minor tsunami of social media noise over Twitter and Facebook. Our warehouse was full of joy, life, community, God, and momentum, and we saw $11,044.50 pledged & donated on Sunday alone! Thank you Lord.

The 6-week Follow intensive is complete, but the campaign continues as we’re believing for the last $57,815.65. We’re communicating to tell you that we are pressing through until the entire goal is reached. The financial need for this year’s growth is still present and God has not told us to stop, or be content with a partial victory. This is a new era for us of persistent expansion. It takes great effort at times to move a ministry into a new reality. It’s an expensive reality, and highly significant in terms of how we are going to be able to impact the world – and it represents decades of ministry fruitfulness.

Please pray that our team would not grow weary in pursuing this goal to the end. As with 2012 & ’13 we are creating a new “high tide mark” for financial provision.

This verse sums up the position God has called us to take with Follow.
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.. Galatians 6:9

With gratitude,
