Kaikoura, New Zealand Ministry

$1,930 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 12 people in 51 months
We are a YWAM (Youth With A Mission) ministry serving in Kaikoura, New Zealand. Kaikoura is a small coastal community that sees thousands of tourists pass through every year. Our staff have a call & passion to share the love of God and good news of Jesus Christ with these travelers. This is a new ministry that we are pioneering in Kaikoura.  

Our first goal is to raise enough money to buy Bibles, devotionals and other Biblical books. We want to purchase small books that are light & easy for backpackers to take with them on their journey. For more information, please check out our website!

Hey guys! We've been having a really good season back in Kaikoura. We've loved having a YWAM team serve with us here for a month. Markets have started to get busy again with the road north of Kaikoura opening! We are in need of some new books.

We see lots of French travellers so we're hoping to buy some French New Testaments.

We have also run out of kids books so we're needing to buy more of those as well.
Having a chat at the market!

Last Monday, our little coastal town of Kaikoura was struck by a 7.8 earthquake. There are many miracles to give thanks for; there have been been few casualties. However, the town has suffered extreme damage and the roads out of town have hundreds of landslides. We are cut off on all sides. As civil defense and the Red Cross help our town, we have a long road ahead and a new normal to get used to.

Our ministry to backpackers is shifting slightly. We aim to be a light to this community and serve in whatever capacity we can. When the roads become accessible, we know the travelers will return. This is a beautiful and special place. In the meantime, we are committed to this place & to these people.

We don't know what future ministry or projects will cost. But we want to offer a place for people to give.

And thank you to all of you who have been sending words of encouragement & praying for us. We may not be able to respond to everyone, but it means the world to us!!

Much love,
Cat & Nicki

Update on the books: We had a generous donation come in from the YWAM Oxford base and we were able to purchase 25 Backpacker Devotionals and 200 Eternal Guru booklets!

Our next big push is to raise money for about 200 small backpacker sized Bibles.
