We now invite you to be part of our vision, we invite you to join us as we launch our first project — translating the book “Is That Really You God” into Slovene. We believe that as YWAMs foundational stories – the stories of faith and a call to missions – become available in the local language, hearts of young people would be stirred to join this movement and make Jesus known to the ends of the earth.
Our goal is to raise 3500 EUR (2100 EUR due by the end of February 2021) to cover all the expenses: translation, proofreading, registering the book, design and printing, transportation and shipping, etc.
Andreja Klinc did her DTS in fall 2014 in Kona, Hawaii and then in the beginning of 2016 God spoke to her, to move back home to Slovenia. Since then the door for YWAM in Slovenia has been opening more evidently. It began with receiving emails from different European locations and with the content of how to see God’s movement in this nation through YWAM expressions. In March 2017 there was a gathering with a purpose to capture God’s heart for this nation and beautiful country. Interest in seeing God’s movement in Slovenia has been getting bigger and bigger since then. Missions teams have been coming to serve and help with discipleship here in Slovenia. Now YWAM in Slovenia is in the early stages of pioneering in the country, where currently there is a small but growing team in the capital of Ljubljana. Vision is to see the nation transformed and to see youth trained and be sent out into a missions field, since this nation has almost no missions history. There is longing to see Slovenia ignited by God’s love, to be a blessing beyond our borders, and to see the Church take its place in fulfilling the Great Commission. With a project where we are translating a book Is that really you God? We believe that as YWAMs foundational stories – the stories of faith and a call to missions – become available in the local language, hearts of young people would be stirred to join this movement and make Jesus known to the ends of the earth.
“I’m so excited that we’re finally ready to land the first ever YWAM pioneer team in Slovenia. In this nation that barely has a mission sending history, the book Is That Really You God? will serve as a prophetic call to an emerging generation of Jesus-lovers. I can’t wait, and I’m full of expectation, to see waves of young people go from this strategically placed country to all corners of the globe. Join us in calling young people into God’s purpose and calling for their lives through partnering in the translation of Loren’s classic book. It’s time for Slovenia!” – Andreas Karstad. Leader, YWAM Grimerud, Norway. Pioneer coach, YWAM Slovenia pioneer project.
“I was so delighted to hear that Loren’s Is That Really You God? is going to be translated into the Slovene language. Three years ago we did not have any YWAM presence in Slovenia and now that we do, this is the first project the new team on the ground is putting together. It would be wonderful if we could get behind their effort in prayer, and also as the Lord leads, financially, so that the Slovene people can have access to this great textbook of how to get involved in World Missions!”
– Belinda Chaplin. YWAM Central Europe Convener.
” This book is about following God’s adventure of transforming people and places. Follow Loren Cunningham through this story as he keeps discovering a bigger God with bigger purposes for us all, and learns through trial and error about hearing his voice and obeying his guidance. My wife and I have known Loren for over fifty years now. I was privileged to help Loren first put this story on paper nearly forty years ago. It’s a story that has grown and grown to embrace many thousands of disciples, young and old, and to become one of the largest mission movements in the world. It’s a story of how God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things – when we listen to his voice and obey.”
– Jeff Fountain. Schuman Center. Former YWAM European Leader.
