Last week in Lae, Papua New Guinea, history was made.

We retired the m/v PACIFIC LINK after an amazing 25 year run in YWAM. She started in Tauranga, New Zealand, then Townsville, Australia and finally Kona, Hawaii.

What a strong steel lady she was. She has many great and beautiful stories to tell. It was a bittersweet moment for the YWAM community as our beloved vessel was decommissioned. She will be missed.

We also commissioned the m/v YWAM LIBERTY! A passing of the baton to the other. Video links from several countries around the world joined in with our celebrations, including our partners from Norway, the team in New Zealand, and the team at Port YWAM in Kona.

Check out the video for a small glimpse into this historic day. God is so good!
