Does anyone know more about YWAM (Youth With A Mission)? I've checked their website. They seemed to be some sort of Christian group. Is this another Benni Hin-like? I have a brother-in-law who belongs to this group. He and his wife trevels a lot even though they cannot really afford it. We just got a their news letter (he and his wife write a newsletter once a year) saying that they need $2500 for them to go to Denmark. My husband and I discussed it and we're going to send them (because that's his brother's family, yup, they are taking their kids, too) $300.
I really don't agree with their decision that because they got a "calling" and this is what they want, other people have to support them. They have two little kids; the older one is ready for kindergarten. They don't have rich family background rather their parents need support. His (my husband's) mom told my husband that they were starving! So we sent $700 to his parents. At the same time we sent $300 to his brother as a part of holiday gifts. We also sent other things, too. I had my husband stop the monthly support since last October because we are in financially difficult situation; we have a huge debt. For holidays and birthdays, we've been sending money with other gifts. I really think this should be enough. We are renting, and they have( own) a house.
Just before we got married, my husband and I had a heated discussion on this. I think this is the only problem between us. I don't mind to help them out if they are really in trouble making ends meet. But to go to overseas and to pay their mortgage? I don't think so.
