Paula Navarrete


Hello! I am Paula Navarrete, a full-time missionary with YWAM (Youth with a Mission) Fire & Fragrance ministry in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.

I am more specifically involved under the ministry of Fire & Fragrance within YWAM. The heart of Fire & Fragrance is to train and send young people to the nations to share the gospel.

This is my 7th year serving in full time missions (so wild!); my 4th year serving with YWAM as a full time missionary.

Over the years I focused much of my training for frontier pioneer missions in the 1040 window. I had lived in the Himalayas for a bit and still pray for many regions to get reached with the gospel of Jesus. My heart’s desire is for the hardest and darkest regions to get reached with the gospel; for bibleless regions to get bibles in their mother tongue; for people to be discipled and trained in the word of God and to share with others what God has done in their life. I also desire to see regions be impacted through community development and see physical change occur in their own hometown- whether that be through education, basic needs being met as well as fitness & health.

The past few years I plugged in with the DTS (Discipleship Training School) world and have staffed two F&F DTS schools at the YWAM Kona base. I led a team of students to the nations and shared the gospel, served others in the nation we went to, worship, prayed, interceded and loved on people wherever we went.

Whatever I plug in with, my heart burns to train others on how to share the gospel; to see people reached with the knowledge & understanding of His love for us; for the unreached to be reached; for others to be catalyzed in what God has called them to do & to see physical needs met of the regions we go to.

Would you prayerfully consider partnering with me prayerfully and financially as we see the unreached reached and this generation get ignited for Jesus and equipped to make Him known.

Many Blessings,
