Thank you so much for your generous donations. We are deeply grateful for the quick response that so many of you all had. The YWAM campuses of YWAM Ships Kona and the University of the Nations in Kona have partnered in their response to the fires on Maui. Due to backed-up airports, our relief efforts to bring aid have begun by sea. Early this morning, August 11, a crew of four from YWAM Ships Kona set sail from Kona, Hawai’i, en route to Maui. The vessel they are using is part of our Flotilla Ministry and is fully loaded with supplies for women and children. The supplies and items on board were donated last night by local missionaries at a YWAM gathering here in Kona. Items and donations will continue to be received for a week at the University of the Nations campus.
We encourage anyone in Hawai’i who owns a yacht or sailboat to consider joining our flotilla and be a part of this much needed relief effort! Please contact Julie Mclaughlin, Director of the Flotilla Ministry at YWAM Ships Kona. Click here to donate to Maui Fire Relief.
