You help the gospel go forth in the Pacific
Hinrich founded Yachts for Life because he has a heart for the people in the Pacific.
To reach out to the people, this organization relies on their two yachts, one of which was funded by people like you giving to JAARS Maritime Solutions. “JAARS has helped us tremendously to keep our yachts afloat and sailing,” Hinrich said. “We couldn’t do what we are doing without the help of JAARS.”
Hinrich and his teams teach BELT seminars (Biblical Education and Leadership Training) at each village they visit. Using Fijian Bibles for their BELT lessons, they look at biblical truths about who God is and who we are.
“We have seen time and again how application of the truth about God has brought significant changes to the lives of the precious people in the islands,” Hinrich said.
A few years ago, in a remote village, the team observed a high level of teenage pregnancy. Using God’s Word, they did a teaching on sexuality. The next year when they returned, there were no more teenage pregnancies!
Recently, a team visited the island of Galoa. “Over 50 adult participants plus as many kids experienced the transformational power of the Word of God by entering anew into a relationship with God,” Hinrich wrote.
Over 50 adults experienced the transformational power of the Word of God.
