We are excited to announce the 4 organizations with whom we will be partnering with this summer: YFC Guatemala, YWAM Taiwan, YFC Hong Kong, and YFC Singapore.  Please join is in prayer as we prepare for the great work which God has prepared in advance for us to do (Ephesians 2:10).

 

YFC Guatemala 

The staff at YFC Guatemala seeks to reach 10,000 young people with the gospel every year through the G-21 initiative; a network of churches and ministries that disciple youth who respond to the gospel.  CTI plays a central role in this initiative by bringing exposure to YFC through a nationwide appearance schedule in schools, churches and public places.  The National Day of Prayer is an annual event coordinated by YFC here, and it serves as a rallying point for their ministry.  CTI plays a role in this event each year, building on a partnership with YFC in Guatemala dating back to 1996.

 

YWAM Taiwan

Reaching youth with the gospel can take many years in Taiwanese culture.  YWAM builds long-term relationships with students here through a coffee shop ministry known as “The Rock.”  

CTI teams connect kids with YWAM through evening coffeehouse concerts and conversational evangelism with students who are eager to practice their English on Americans.  During the days, teams minister in hospitals, schools, and through open-air concerts on the bustling streets and wharfs of Taipei.

 

YFC Hong Kong

In addition to a packed appearance schedule in the malls, streets, parks and churches of Hong Kong, our teams also minister in the public schools here, giving YFC opportunities to present the gospel that wouldn’t be possible without our team’s presence.  CTI also plays a crucial role in YFC’s unique outreach to the elderly; a people group that is tragically neglected by this busy society.  YFC provides basic needs and opportunities for significance by involving them in our team’s events.  The gospel isn’t just heard here – it is experienced. 

 

YFC Singapore 
The YFC chapter in Singapore uses CTI teams to connect with the young people of their country through music that is exciting and recognizable to Singaporean youth.  YFC has established CTI as a “friendly band that sings meaningful songs,” and carefully crafts our programs using specific themes that are relevant to their students.  This approach has created a large fan base that attracts many young people to CTI concerts in Singapore.  As a result, our partners have significant opportunities for evangelism and discipleship both inside and outside the public school system.

"When I can't feel you, I have learned to reach out just the same"

AttachmentWho has felt lonely? Who has felt unloved or uncared for? Who has felt hopeless?

 

Lately I’ve been weighed down by all these feelings, but the problem is that these feelings aren’t based on reality.

 

I am not alone. I am loved and cared for. I have hope.

But I’m not just talking about being loved by people around me.

 

Most importantly I have Christ. He’s promised to never leave me nor forsake me. His death for my sins on the cross is the ultimate example of his love for me. And because he is trustworthy I can put my hope in him.

 

Yet, I still feel the same.

 

In my sadness and frustration I’ve been desperately praying from a passage in the book of Philippians. In chapter 4 is says,

 

     Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice!

     Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon.

     Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.

     Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.

     Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand.

     His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

 

So what I’m gathering from this passage is that I need to choose joy in all circumstances. And if there’s anything that’s bothering me, if I pray about it with a posture of humility and thankfulness, God’s peace will guard my heart and mind.

 

Yet, I still feel the same. Different things that happen throughout the day still make me feel lonely, unloved and hopeless.

 

Why don’t I feel God? Why don’t I feel his peace? Why hasn’t the way I act and react to difficult situations changed?

 

In all this God’s been teaching me about faithfulness.

 

Lyrics to Brooke Fraser’s song “Faithful” have resonated with me as of late:

 

     When I can’t feel you, I have learned to reach out just the same

     When I can’t hear you, I know you still hear every word I pray

     And I want you more than I want to live another day

     And as I wait for you maybe I’m made more faithful

 

If anything, it’s been a lesson for me to recognize God’s presence in ways that I wouldn’t normally look for. Each day I need to intentionally reflect on how I’ve seen God provide for me and my team, the opportunities he’s given us and the ways that he’s been working. Some days he even speaks to me in the majesty of his creation.

 

I’ve also learned I need to choose to do things that are life-giving for me versus things that drain me. I need to dig that much deeper into the word of God and remain in constant conversation with God through prayer.

 

There’s nothing in the world – no thing, no person – who can satisfy the need in my heart for God. Everything is garbage in comparison.

 

I go back to Philippians – chapter 3 – for encouragement in this. From the world’s perspective, the apostle Paul had it all together. He had every earthly qualification to be confident in his life and works. But he considered everything worthless when compared to the infinite value of knowing Christ. He said,

 

     I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law;

     rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ.

     For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith.

     I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead.

 

So where am I at right now?

 

There are still moments each day when I feel lonely or unloved or hopeless. But throughout the day I seek to recognize ways God is present and working in my life. I read the bible even when it doesn’t seem like God is speaking directly to me. And I tell God how I’m doing and what I’m thinking.

 

Even though growing pains aren’t fun, I’m so thankful for this lesson in faithfulness that God is teaching me – faithfulness when it’s not easy to trust, and faithfulness to seek him to heal me and meet my needs.

 

     We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield.

     In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.

     May your unfailing love be with us, Lord, even as we put our hope in you.

     Psalm 33:20-22

 

Remember… With Christ, you are not alone. You are loved and cared for. You can have hope.

Treasure In Jars Of Clay

Hello from Ontario, Canada! 

We've had a fun few days recently with a busy schedule doing everything from recruiting at Redeemer College to playing at a few Christian high schools Hamilton area.
Last night we did an evening concert at Providence Christian Reformed church. The following morning we got up around 4 am to drive to Toronto area to play a chapel at another school. Our bodies are staring to feel a little weak at week 11 out of 13. 
I'm reminded of what Jesus said to his disciples in Gethsemanie. He asked them to stay up and pray with him, and they were just so tired. 
“Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Matthew 26:41 NIV)

I find myself in the same way tempted. Tempted to complain, lose patience, lose the joy of what I am doing just because of physical tiredness or minor sickness. "How can I even do a concert when it feels like there is nothing left in me?", I ask myself. Then I remember, that before anything,  I can come to The Lord for strength. How many times in the past has He proven to me that he provides exactly what we need to do what He asks us to do. Just like manna for the Israelites in the desert.
The best part is that The Lord is so rich in mercy and strength.  Especially these last few days I've been so blessed by the people we met, people who took the time to pray over us and speak words of ecnouragement. People whom we just met.
Before the last few concerts my prayer was about energy for myself and my teammates. I look back and it's awesome again to see that the Lord has answered and provided in great ways. Especially as a look back at my team and see them jumping up and down on stage! Yea-yeah!
This verse has been a highlight of my fulltime year so far: For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. (2 Corinthians 4:5-7 NIV)

We praise Him for that and for the chance that He gave us to be here, to share the Good news and to encourage believers. We praise him for the answered prayers. We praise him for provision.
We thank you for keeping us in your prayers!


Yosemite

800px-Mirror LakesWe spent a couple days in Modesto with Elijah's family. It was an amazing time for me. I truly felt at home and was encouraged by all of them.

 

We had a day off where they brought us to Yosemite National Park. It was one of the most beautiful things I had ever seen!

 

We went on a few short easy hikes. We have 2 asthmatic people on the team so too much strain is not a good idea for us! We crawled into some rocks and found caves to take some cool pictures in. We saw a massively tall waterfall!

 

We took a shuttle to another location and we had a bus driver who was a bit impatient. I loved Beth's (Elijah's mother) attitude about it, she said that bus drivers are just under appreciated. Her concern for him through his negative attitude was a witness of grace for me. It was refreshing.

 

We went on another hike to a place called Mirror lake. We were looking at the lake and it had the most stunning reflection of half-dome and other surroundings. Again something Beth said struck me.

 

She mentioned how the water was like us, a reflection of Christ but not the actual thing. I have been thinking about this since.

 

If I had thrown a stone in that water, even a tiny stone and disturbed the peaceful creation the ripples would have distorted that reflection.

 

Like sin in our lives even the smallest amount of outside disturbance to the peaceful creation can distort the image we are meant to reflect. This pool of flat reflective water had a beautiful reflection.

 

Beth also pointed out that it was still not as beautiful as the real thing. The pool inspired us to look up. Gave us a picture of the real thing.

 

The glory of it is, we only had to look up to behold the real thing.

 

I pray I can be like this pool, peaceful in the way I am meant to be. I want to be focused so much on my creation that I am able to reflect my creator. Free from pebbles that would cause ripples in the image I reflect. And above all inspiring those that see the reflection to look up, to behold the real thing.

    CTI is very excited about the opportunity to return to YFC Zimbabwe as it has been over a decade since the ministry has partnered with this organization.  YFC Zimbabwe is, in many ways, going through a lot of changes and with that trying out new methods of ministry.  They see CTI as an organization that can join them in this endeavor.  For this team, they will seek to join YFC Zimbabwe in their goal of ministering to those who have fewer social advantages than other people groups while focusing on helping YFC Zimbabwe build long term relationships with the people they minister to.  All this, while centering their message on the hope and freedom that is only found in Christ.

    One of the goals of YFC Japan is to "build bridges between secular people and Christians."  They place a high value on relationship and a subjective sharing of one's faith, and thus seek opportunities that allow them to build personal relationships with the people they minister to.  Some of the bigger struggles in Japan include loneliness, depression, and purposelessness, and because of this, the team will be equipped to proclaim a message of hope, belonging, and self-worth.  Making cultural connections is key to their ministry and the team will seek to do just that, speaking directly to the needs of the audience and presenting the truth of the Gospel as it applies to Japanese culture.

    YWAM Taiwan has a passion for relational ministry.  In addition, they see every team that comes through as one that brings a specific set of strengths that can enhance their ministry and serve them.  Also, though this team will not be in Taiwan for the long term, YWAM Taiwan sees everything as an investment for the long term vision.  Any connections this team makes during their time will be pursued.  The team will play in a variety of venues. One particular venue the team will spend some time at is "The Rock"--YWAM's own coffeeshop ministry that focuses on building long term relationships with those they minister to.  All in all, this team will be a part of a long term vision, one that seeks to build relationships, share the Gospel, and help people mature in their faith.

    Mauricio, the director of YFC Honduras, uses every opportunity available to preach the Gospel.  CTI teams grant him a unique and different way to do that.  In many ways, CTI allows him to meet more people and create further conversations with people down the road.  Relationships are highly valued in Honduran culture and though the team won't be able to personally follow up long term with the people they minister to, YFC pursues those new connections, at times with youth they may not have been able to connect with otherwise.  The people of Honduras highly value the ideas of strength, freedom, and unity.  The YFC staff in particular value the message that there is freedom in Christ and through their own personal stories, minister to others by proclaiming the liberation Christ offers from sin, shame, worry, addiction, and self-destructive behavior.

    CTI teams play a big role in the ministry of YFC Guatemala each year.  They provide a sort of push that allows the YFC to interact with youth that they normally wouldn't be able to.  Teams themselves don't often get as much of that interaction time, but their works pave the way for YFC to continue forging relationships.  In Guatemalan culture, relationships take a very high priority, and as such are essential for the sharing of the Gospel.  YFC Guatemala also seeks to focus on drawing Christians deeper into what they believe so that they can go beyond simply knowing the "facts" of the Gospel.  All in all, the team will partner alongside and support the ministry of the YFC, seeking to be that push which strengthens the work the YFC has been doing and will continue to do long after the team's time in country is complete.

    YFC Singapore has a very clear vision of how they will use a CTI team.  Often times, they even develop the music repertoire themselves, going as far as crafting set-lists for the various places the teams are set up to appear.  CTI teams are used to heighten interest in a large finale event or to create opportunities for personal relationships to form between the YFC staff and CTI's audiences.  YFC Singapore will use the team to draw crowds and set up future opportunities where the Gospel can be boldy presented.  Personal relationships are very important in Singaporean culture as building long term relationships often precedes sharing the Gospel, so teams may not see the fruit of their work.  However, YFC Singapore will continue to pursue the relationships the team helps to build long after the team's time in country is complete.
