I’m Maggie Riddle, a strong lover of Jesus and full-time missionary with YWAM (Youth With A Mission) in Kailua Kona, Hawaii.
I started following the Lord about a year ago and have truly learned what it means to be born again–the old Maggie no longer lives but it is Christ that lives in me! I did my DTS (Discipleship Training School) through YWAM in Kona in April 2021. This time was a catalyst for my transformation in the Lord, both inwardly and for how he wants to use me.
For my outreach portion of DTS I went to Turkey. And man let me tell you… my whole outlook on life changed. He broke my heart for those who don’t know him. I’ve surrendered my whole life to the Lord so that he can use me to reach those who don’t know Him.
After my DTS I knew the Lord was calling me back to Kona. I left all my family and friends after a week of being home in Kansas and moved my whole life to Hawaii.
The Lord has called me here to both serve long-term missionary families here on the YWAM base and at a local Urgent Care to fulfill my passion with helping the sick.
The Lord didn’t give me a timeline of how long but until he tells me otherwise, I will call Kona my home! I am so excited to start this new journey the Lord has called me on and can’t wait for what he has in store for my future. I would love it if you could join me in prayer and consider partnering with me financially as I follow the Lord and his plan for me.
Thank you and love you all,
