Hello you! I am Ethan Lovelace, a full-time missionary currently on staff with Fire & Fragrance at YWAM Kona (Youth With A Mission).
At YWAM we equip anyone willing, to walk out the calling the Lord has for them. Our motto is— “To know God, and to make Him known.” We want to raise up sold out and fully surrendered lovers of Jesus, who will go anywhere for the gospel. And that’s exactly what YWAM’s done! We are currently the largest missions sending base in the WORLD!
While doing my discipleship training school with YWAM in 2021, my heart was met with the brokenness of this world and the significance in Jesus coming to save it! Because of this, I planned on doing missions the rest of my life. I believe there is radical reformation that is going to happen in the church, and I believe it with start with the revelation that every soul is worthy of hearing the name of Jesus! I'm done living for the world! The Kingdom of heaven needs those to go out into the world to offer REAL freedom.
To keep myself surrendered, I regularly try to grasp the pain and persecution Jesus endured just for me. It doesn’t make sense! BUT I know I will forever be grateful and lay my life down at the feet of the King who rescued me from so much shame. I KNOW nothing else in life can matter as much as giving people the same freedom I was given and leading them to an unconditionally intentional father!
After my time with YWAM, I feel a call to the uncontacted tribes in the Amazon. I’m not sure where it will lead but I know His plans are better than mine! However, I don’t get paid to do this job! I need people to partner with me and fight for a breakthrough in this generation through finances and prayer. Please prayerfully consider giving to Gods call in my life and reach out with any questions. I believe in partnership, and community—and I would be so blessed to have you be a part of mine!
