  7. I’ve never met him, but I’m so thankful that he followed his vision from God and created his vision, YWAM. Thank you Loren for answering your calling, allowing us, the YWAMERS, to also follow our callings. If it wasn’t for YWAM, I wouldn’t feel this close to God and knowing that getting out of your comfort zone is good and not as scary as you might think when He’s right by your side.

  8. It’s an honor to have met Loren and listened to his teachings. What he established by obeying God’s call is extraordinary and changed the view on missions forever. We will be forever thankful for your obedience to the Lord, Papa Lauren.

  9. This really blessed me. Hearing the the first-hand testimony about someone who operated in obedience in such a manner is inspirational. When I move on from this mortal coil, I want a legacy such as this… as a man that followed Christ wholeheartedly, in humility and in love.

  10. Loren’s obedience to God’s guidance and commission has changed so many lives including my family’s! I am so grateful that my parents said yes to doing a DTS and now I have been given the opportunity to follow in their steps of deepening my relationship with the Lord and working in missions! All because Loren said yes to the Lord’s calling!
