      "I would like to take this time to sincerely thank YWAM Ships Kona for your partnership with us in delivering the much-needed services to our remote disadvantaged communities and urban poor here in Western Highlands Province and the whole of Highlands region of PNG. We really appreciate and value your partnership and contributions."

      Dr. Waimbe Wahamu | Papua New Guinea

      "Our partnership with YWAM Ships Kona has helped to provide essential services to more places, while building capacity for people to continue meeting their development needs."

      Gov Sasindran Muthuvel | Papua New Guinea

      "We look forward to future visits from YWAM teams, building on the outcomes from their recent visit and exploring new areas for collaboration."

      Christopher J.Loeak | Marshall Islands

      "God is allowing YWAM Ships Kona and the University of the Nations Kona, to work on the same goals, as twin ministries. For 60 years or more, I’ve traveled the nations of the earth and I have seen where the hardest places are. It’s the Islands of the Pacific."
