The Waves Gathering in New Zealand Was Epic!
YWAM Matamata hosted this year’s International Waves Gathering, and it was a wonderful event. First off, New Zealand, gah— it did not dissapoint! And for those of us that received the grace to come up the mountain, God met us and fed us, and it was oh so good. Highlights included:
Matthew Dawson asking us, “If Jesus was sitting in this room right here right now, what would you ask of him?”
Craig’s XL sized session about the generation we’re trying to serve and how we can make our Mission Adventures E.P.I.C.
The traditional Maori greeting ceremony including hongi, the sharing of breath
The “short” hike to Wairere falls, gulp!
THE SHIRE! And getting invited to Frodo’s Feast! And Jan!!!
Aiden and Sara got ENGAGED!
Epic worship, especially the haka!!!
The warm springs next door.
Here are two recordings of two of the main sessions:
All in all, this Waves was awesome and we are grateful to God for meeting us in Matamata! Stay tuned for more information about the next International Waves Gathering!
