VISION STATEMENT: To know God and make Him known.
My name is Wilawan Watyotha or Pook as most of my friends call me. I was born in the city of Khonkaen in March 9, 1981. I was raised in Buddhist family. My father is a teacher and my mother is a farmer.
I gave my life to the Lord on January 13, 2001 at a camp which was a ministry of the Campus Outreach during my first year in university. Later on, one of my sisters came to know Christ. I participated in weekly small group meetings, campus ministry, bible studies, church worship team, retreats, summer training programs provided by the Campus Outreach from 2001-2004.
After I graduated from university in 2004, I decided to do a 7 month training program called University Discipleship Training School (UDTS) which was run by Youth With A Mission in Khon Kaen. It was quite a challenge but I had a great time getting to know God more.
Three weeks after I finished the training course, God opened the door for me to go to the United States for a cultural exchange program. I was working as a baby sitter in Georgia, in the southern United States. I learned so much from being a nanny and started to understand more about different culture, values, and lifestyles.
God led me to do the School of Worship in Montana. I got my visa and the way in which God took me there was a miracle. I did the school in September 2005. I learned so much about worship during this time.
I came back to my home country, Thailand, to be staff with Youth With A Mission Thailand, helping staff the School of Worship in Bangkok in 2006-2007. During the break from the school, I was a translator for international mission teams that came to Thailand for mission trips.
In September 2007, I went back to USA to get more training on music through School of Music in Missions. My heart is to be able to share love of God and encourage people through evangelism, training, worship music, arts, translating, and counseling.
I am currently studying my SBS in Switzerland.
I feel called to full time missions work with Youth With A Mission. Your prayers and financial contributions are vital in making this happen. Would you please pray whether God would have you support me and the work of YWAM Thailand.
Thank you for investing in me and believing God with me.
May God bless you!
