“Just a short note to express a heartfelt THANK YOU for the awesome time Patti and I were able to spend with you. As volunteers we felt welcome and very much included in the PORT YWAM community. Serving the Great I AM alongside you all was truly inspirational.
Some of the highlights for us were:
“Glorious” and “memorable” are two words that describe our time with you. God is being honored in this place. His Kingdom is growing and lives are being dramatically changed as His Word is taught and taken out into the world through this ministry.”
The first day we were shown around the hotel and told where to report to work the following day and given some time to acclimatize. The hotel faces onto the main street for downtown Kona and is directly across the street from a rock wall separating the street from the ocean.
The maintenance work ranged from plumbing, electrical, laying flooring and doing basic carpentry work. I worked in the finance department and there are other opportunities in office work, kitchen, and hospitality, all of which I helped with during our time here.
Work and sleep all happen at the hotel, with that amazing view. It is a beautiful spot to have a vacation while serving at the same time. My husband enjoyed a dip in the ocean daily after work. The permanent staff and volunteers all have been great to work and worship with. We feel truly blessed to be part of such a valuable ministry.
