Ryen Gipe


Hi! My name is Ryen Nicole Gipe.

I am from a small town in Montana just west of Bozeman and I graduated from high school in the spring of 2023.


I am currently attending YWAM Kona (Youth With A Mission). The lecture phase has been SO good! I have seen the Lord work in so many amazing ways. I have had my ups and downs, but God has been by my side through them all. I can’t believe I am halfway done with the lecture phase of DTS. As much as I love it here in Kona, I am counting down the days until I am on outreach in Peru. 

These past few weeks have been so amazing! I have grown so much in my relationship with God in ways I could have never imagined. I have learned how to forgive and gain so much freedom through Jesus. I have also gained so much confidence and comfort in the Lord. I have learned how to preach, how to pray, and how to hear God's voice, and made some of the best fiends here in Kona. I can't wait to continue to grow in the Lord and all these new skills and take them to Peru with me. My heart burns more and more for Peru every single day. 

We are leaving for Peru on December 20th. When we arrive in Peru, we will spend the first month and a half in Cusco. In Cusco we will mainly be focusing on church and youth ministry. We will spend most of our time doing door to door evangelism and also spending time in various churches throughout the city. After that we will fly to Iquitos; we will be there for a week or two doing the same thing. From there we will head into the Amazon. We will be on an 8-day boat trip into the Amazon doing lots of river ministry and visiting tribes along the way for 1-2 days at a time. Some of the tribes we plan on going to have never even heard the name of Jesus! When in the villages preaching to the different tribes, we will do lots of door to door ministry as well as work with lots of children.

After about 3.5 weeks in the Amazon, we will head back to Iquitos for a 3-day debrief with my team. From there we will fly to Atlanta, Georgia and meet up with the whole school for a school debrief. During that we will share testimonies from outreach and learn how to incorporate all of that into life at home.  

I have fully funded and paid for my lecture phase as well as just completed my first payment of $4000 towards outreach. With that being said, I have one final payment of $2500 for my outreach. This will cover all the rest of my flights, as well as food, housing and most of the materials needed! God has provided for me so much already and I know he will provide for me until the end. If you can't support me financially, prayer is just as important! Please prayerfully consider supporting me to go spread the gospel and make God known!
