The Energizer Bunny....

Hello friends,

Well...this update is LONG overdue. My apologies. I feel like I have been going like the energizer bunny as of late!

Last night, I got home from Colorado. This past week, myself and another YWAM Pismo Beach staff, Jacque Gowing, had the opportunity to go to speak about our time in Haiti, helping in the earthquake relief efforts with YWAM Haiti, located in Saint Marc, which is about 60 miles north of the capitol city of Port-au-Prince. We also spoke about Project Sixty-One, the ministry we both work with here at YWAM Pismo Beach. Over the week, we spoke eight times at various different churches. It was so fun to see God opening so many doors! He blew me away last week-wow!! I will be leading two different teams to Haiti with Project Sixty-One. We are focusing on bringing medical and construction workers (Fore more information on these outreaches, go to: http://ywampismobeach.org/project%2061/#/outreaches ).

I feel like the Lord is really working in me with speaking in front of people. Two years ago, I would have never even thought about speaking in front of 700 people, but it happened last Wednesday evening! I've become way more comfortable and that is encouraging to me! I even noticed a difference throughout the week-Thank You, Jesus!!

Something else exciting is happening! For the past year and a half, I have been asking God to provide me with a little vacation. That has happened! I am going to Hawaii on Thursday (February 25) for ten days! The best part is, I had enough frequent flier miles so I only had to pay $10 for my flight!! I will be staying with my friend (who I met in Haiti) and his wife and kids. Its close to YWAM's main campus in Kona, Hawaii. I am very excited to get away and have some time alone with Jesus and to just relax. I feel like I've been running and running and running. I think the Lord knew it was time for me to stop for a bit. I think this will be very important for me to do.

I just want to say thank you once again for your continual prayer and financial support. God has done SO much in the past few months and its very exciting to be in the middle of it.

God Bless,

Tyler Dean
