17 Nov Vacation with a Mission
Unveiling the Heart of YWAM Puerto Vallarta
Embarking on a journey to Puerto Vallarta isn’t just about pristine beaches and vibrant culture; it’s an opportunity
for a vacation with a purpose. At the heart of this Mexican paradise lies the small but impactful Youth With A
Mission (YWAM) base, offering a unique blend of exploration and meaningful engagement.
Transformative Connections in the Heart of Puerto Vallarta
One distinctive feature of YWAM Puerto Vallarta is its commitment to community transformation. Every week,
volunteers visit a men’s rehab center, engaging in conversations, prayers, worship, book reading, and sharing the
gospel. This outreach extends to a partnership with a local rehabilitation center operated by Alcoholics Anonymous
and Narcotics Anonymous. Aiming to raise $3,000 for a crucial bathroom project at the rehab center, YWAM invites
visitors to contribute to a lasting impact on lives.
Revitalizing Spaces: Parks as Community Backyards
In a city where personal backyard spaces are limited, parks become the communal backyard for residents. YWAM Puerto
Vallarta is on a mission to revitalize these spaces, contributing to park projects that serve as a catalyst for
community enhancement. This vision involves local churches, outreach teams, and volunteers working together to
renovate parks, fostering long-term connections with the community.
Empowering through Education: English Classes and Beyond
For the past three years, YWAM has been actively engaging the community through free English classes held on
Tuesdays and Thursdays. With three levels of classes offered to cater to diverse needs, this initiative aims to
bless the community and support those who cannot afford language lessons. Visitors are not only welcome to
participate but are also encouraged to contribute by teaching, running intensive courses, or sponsoring weeks for
Hands-On Impact: Ministries and More
The ethos of YWAM Puerto Vallarta goes beyond rhetoric; it’s about hands-on experiences with a lasting impact.
From supporting a homeless ministry distributing sandwiches every Saturday to partnering with Young Life,
connecting with local kids and discussing faith, there are diverse opportunities for individuals to contribute
their skills and interests to the community.
YWAM Puerto Vallarta: A Gateway to Local Culture
Nestled in a vibrant community, YWAM Puerto Vallarta provides a chance to experience the local culture, indulge
in street food, and savor authentic tacos. The small YWAM base, despite its size, is brimming with prayer
requests and opportunities for supporting the mission through donations. It’s a space where individuals can not
only explore the beauty of Puerto Vallarta but actively participate in its transformation.
