 YWAM International

Youth With A Mission is an international volunteer movement of Christians from many backgrounds, cultures and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM, our purpose is simply to know God and to make Him known.
When YWAM began in 1960, our main focus was giving young people opportunities to demonstrate the love of Jesus to the whole world, according to His command in Mark 16:15. Today, we still focus on youth, but we have members (known as “YWAMers”) of almost every age and many of our short-term efforts have grow into long-term endeavors that have impacted lives and nations.
YWAM has a decentralized structure that encourages new vision and the exploration of new ways to change lives through training, convey the message of the gospel and care for those in need. We are currently operating in more than 1,100 locations in over 180 countries, with a staff of nearly 18,000.

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.

God sets the lonely in families, he leads out the prisoners with singing;

-Psalm 68:5-6

MeiHui Hsu

MeiHui did her DTS in 1995 at Kona King’s Mansion. She has staffed and led different schools in YWAM. She was also part of the Kona’s leadership team. Through her time with YWAM, she grew so much in God. Father has taken her on a journey she never expected, both in nations and in understanding God’s calling for her. After being captured in China, God healed her depression through art. In that, she discovered her passion for art and writing. She has published books about art and healing as well as other topics.

Through the 20 years in mission, God took Meihui to 20 nations where she experienced God’s heart for nations. In recent years, she combines art and inner healing as God open a door for her to minister to many people. Her desires are to see people set free and walk in their own destiny in God.
