We all know we have DNA. Just recently I was helping my eldest daughter do an experiment for school in which she was supposed to extract and show her DNA. It was quite fascinating I must say as I had never done this in my high school.
I took a photo of our DNA, which of course could barely be seen with our human eyes, by simple seeing the strand floating in water with a little food coloring. To have an up close look we would need to get a microscope to observe what it is made of.
Well, YWAM has a DNA as well. The way God made us as a mission, the things He spoke to us that are key for our growth, how we grow and the things He has shaped us with.
Sometimes like our human DNA we can’t fully perceive or appreciate this DNA unless we take it under the loop, put it under the microscope so to say.
So this coming week in YWAM Mazatlan, Mexico there will be an event called DNA Infusion led by the founders of YWAM Loren & Darlene Cunningham, with David Hamilton, vice-president of strategic innovation with the University of the Nations as well as several other Global Leaders of the mission who will impart this DNA.
Here is little video of Darlene describing what the DNA is: Darlene on YWAM DNA
Giacomo and I myself get to form a small part of this gathering. We will be leaving this week and fly to Mazatlan and will seek to only inspire new leaders, but also infuse them with the YWAM DNA.
Why is this important? If we don’t understand why we were called into existence, who we are and what God has given to us, we will not secure the future of our existence and God wants us to continue into the future, to multiply, to expand His kingdom, to reach out to all who have not heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We all want to know who we are, what has been placed within us, why we exist, what runs through our veins that God has put there to use for the expansion of His kingdom.
This coming two weeks in Mazatlan we will do just that, discovering together the DNA God has given Youth with a Mission with a new generation of leaders!!
