No, we are all volunteers at YWAM. My livelihood comes from offers from friends and family. But why do I live that way? God could, alone and without involving anyone, send me all the financial resources necessary for my day to day in Spain. However, being a relational and communal God, He chooses to involve his children in his own work. Like YWAM, our livelihood system is based on relationships, on friendships and partnerships, functioning as a Body. This promotes accountability, communication and mutual prayer, both by the contributor and by the recipient. After all, when you offer, your heart goes along with your money (Matthew 6.21).
