We give praise and thanks to the Lord for a successful 50th Year Jubilee celebration. On May 16th our GYE family and friends gathered for the celebration at the House of Prayer in Orland for a time of praise, fellowship and remembering all that our faithful Lord has done for us during the Past 50 years. Fond memories and praises to Lord sprang from our hearts during the 20 minute video presentation capturing the highlights of the past 50 years of GYE's ministry. We remembered the youth outreaches of the early sixties, the language studies at Guadalara, Mexico, the many young lives trained through the Bible schools, the trips to the Pacific Islands , Central & South America, on GYE's sailing vessel the Morning Star, The Log church at Mount Hull, WA built by Bible school students and church members! Another one of the highlights was the sharing of greetings and congratulations from Africa and Central America by those who were unable to attend.
We give glory and praise to our Father in heaven for His faithful mercy and grace! We do not know what the future holds but we do know Who holds the future!
By the way we just received this morning, an email from Thailand requesting our Bible study series on the Kingdom of God.
Later we will sharing more information about a different way to explore the Bible!

Global Youth Evangelism or "GYE" as it is known to its constituents was incorporated June 1, 1965 at Chico, CA. Since those early days to the present, with the work of their missionaries and ministry friends, the mission of Evangelism through Discipleship has touched six continents as well as several Pacific Island groups.
During the past 50 years "GYE" has been involved in: planting churches and youth training centers with one year Bible schools, publishing the Christian Worker Bible Study Series, an international boat ministry with its sailing vessel the Morning Star and establishing a Spanish Language School. Through these endeavors the Lord has graciously extended the influence of His kingdom touching the lives of hundreds of thousands around the globe.
