Hey y’all! My name is Annika Pape and I am a missionary serving the Lord with YWAM (Youth with a Mission)!

The Lord called me into full-time missions in January of 2023 after working in camp ministry and other various jobs. I served at YWAM Kona for 9 months from September ‘22 to June ‘23 as a 7th grade homeroom/assistant teacher. After that, I officially started my missionary journey in September of ‘23 when I did a Discipleship Training School at YWAM Mazatlan, Mexico. My DTS outreach was 2 months long in Mexico and the Amazons and I got to see the Lord work in beautiful ways.

I am passionate about leading and discipling the youth to come to know Jesus in a personal way and to find fullness of life in Him! Working in camp ministry gave me a passion for this and I want to use the gifts, experiences, and passions God has given me to build his kingdom wherever He calls me. God has also given me a heart for people of different nations and I love being able to share the love of Jesus with people who don’t know Him. Those are just a few reasons why I’m so excited to become a full-time missionary.

From March 19th-June 8th, I will be on staff at YWAM Kona with the volunteer program that I served with last year called Kokua Crew. I will be leading, discipling, and encouraging the volunteers that serve at YWAM Kona, as well as helping with the behind the scenes needs of the program to serve them in any way I can.

Then Lord willing, in September ‘24, I will return to YWAM Mazatlan to do a three month internship and after, commit to being on staff for 2 years. This will help me grow and develop as a missionary through serving the Lord on the YWAM base and leading DTS outreach teams of young people to the nations to share the Gospel and build God’s Kingdom. I have felt the Lord calling me to go back to YWAM Mazatlan and serve Him there and I am so excited for all that He has planned for me to do there.

Would you consider partnering with me as I serve the Lord through YWAM in these upcoming months and years?

If you feel led to partner with me, I will firstly need your prayers! I can do nothing on my own and there is constantly a battle between the dark and light kingdom, so I need your prayers to help me walk by the Spirit and do what God calls me to do each day.

Secondly, to serve in the areas God has called me to, I need financial support. All YWAM staff are volunteers and raise their own support. If you feel led to give, you can give a one-time donation or become a monthly supporter so that I can be sustained in my ministry and keep serving the Lord. I want to ask if you could pray and consider supporting me monthly ($10, $30, $75, $100) however much the Lord leads you to give. As a new missionary, I am starting to build my financial support system and I would be honored and so grateful if you would support me in this way!

Thank you for being here and for being a part of my journey in missions as I serve our beautiful savior Jesus Christ. It blows my mind that I get to work with Jesus every day! What a joy it is to be His child and His vessel of love and hope to the world around us.

Love in Christ,

Annika Pape
