Here is some feedback we got from our outreach one volunteers!


Nerida in the clinic

“It has been a great experience for me to get out of my comfort zone and see the need around me, especially the need for health services in my country.” Nerida, Dentist, PNG

Steve helping in the clinic

“My time on the medical ship has been a humbling one. Seeing so many people take time out of their normal life to the people of PNG is really wonderful to see. Plus, I was extremely blessed by the giving hearts of the people we served. Time after time they would give out of their lack. I was shown what true giving looks like.” Steve McAllister, DTS Student, USA

“I’ve really enjoyed coming back onboard. To be able to provide immunizations to these communities is an amazing gift and preventing illness for these people is an amazing feeling. Despite at times the stressful conditions, holding a small child in your arms makes it worthwhile! PNG is a beautiful place as are the people.” Rebecca Grey, Nurse, Australia


Ron out on the zodiac!

“I was very impressed with the hard work and dedication of all the volunteers to carry out their duties with a smile and efficiency. Everyone really helped each other.” Ron Bockhold, Second Mate, USA

“The last 2 and a half weeks were my first time in a developing country. It was a new and great experience. The work on shore was exhausting but really worth it. I was amazed by the kindness and the thankfulness of the locals. It was a really good time for me.” Anna-Lena Miavo, Nurse, Germany

“What I love about being onboard a ship in some of the most remote places in the world is the challenges that arise. What to do with the pig carcass that has been gifted to you? Or the countless fresh coconut and bananas? Its never boring, never predictable, always a blessing!” Tori Ferguson, Chief Steward, UK


Bethany hanging out with the locals!

“PNG has once again captured my heart as we partnered with the villages to see how we could help each other. We left the villages with better health care, cleaner water and smiles on their faces. They left us with new impressions of culture, laughter and tears of joy. We will remember them forever.” Bethany, YWAM Staff/Dentistry team, Canada


Sophie talks with a patient

“I came onboard the ship wanting to experience the realities of a medical mission. I feel like I have done that, but also learnt and experienced so much more. I have seen the never-ending need in the villages and the community at large, but I have also truly experienced Gods love and provision for  this community poured out through the selfless, dedicated lives that have given their time and themselves to serve these people. I  have been inspired and influenced deeply by the genuine compassion and love you have all displayed throughout these last 2 and a half weeks. Thank you YWAM.” Sophie Li, Paramedic, Australia
