News from the Wiener Family
Happy winter to all of you in the Northern Hemisphere. Today is the first day of summer for us... perhaps a bit upside down from your experience right now.:) We have had quite the season of travel and ministry leading up to this month. So thank you for your prayers. We have definitely felt God's protection and power during this time!
Last month, Sam and I (Cliff) traveled to Manila, Philippines to participate in a Global Youth Outreach. The purpose was to activate the Christian youth of Manila to reach their great city for Jesus. I participated in leading worship, speaking and prayer ministry. Sam (age 16) joined in with the youth and even helped with praying for some of the participants. It was such fun to be a father-son team.
Right after the Global Youth Outreach, we sent out our international teams and with a total of 297 local Filipino believers saw 703 salvations and 62 healings across the different regions of the city! Over the past year, we have seen a mighty move of God with 29,000 people giving their lives to Jesus. You have a part in this inheritance, as we all work together to see His kingdom extended.
After a couple weeks back at home, Sam had the privilege of going back to Manila with a sports ministry team from YWAM Perth. They did lots of evangelism, prayer ministry, while playing sports with locals. They were privileged to set up a basketball tournament with sixteen Filipino teams. Today, the finals are happening, and they plan to publicly proclaim the Gospel to all those who have attended. Please pray for a great response.
Just this last week, Cristine accomplished an amazing feat. She rode her bike for 150 kilometres (just under 100 miles) in an effort to raise funds for our latest student dorm construction. Way to go, Cristine! Her body stayed intact, and finances came in so that we can continue to welcome more nations for missionary training.
Next year, we will be focusing on Nepal as a missions base. Currently, I am involved with strategizing how we will get Bibles, discipleship resources and teams into many unreached people groups in Nepal. Please pray for effective strategies and the ability to find the lost ones.
Katie graduates from 6th grade this coming week. Here in Australia, she will be a high schooler next year!

We have been very grateful for Suburban Life Community Church for all their help in processing our support checks over many years. But, due to greater ease and options with our support finances, we will be changing the way our support checks are processed from this point. We kindly ask that you would send your support checks made payable to YWAM and send to:
PO Box 3000

As always, please do not write our names on the checks, but include a note indicating supporting for Cliff & Cristine Wiener. YWAM in Tyler, TX will send you a receipt for tax deductible purposes.
In addition, if you would rather make an online payment via credit card that will go directly toward our support, you can now do that! Please click below to make your online donation that is sent directly to us. After giving, you will be sent a receipt for tax-deductible purposes.
Thank you so much for standing with us to see the unreached reached with the love of Jesus. Your support and prayers are paving the way for many to hear the Gospel and be brought into a thriving relationship with Jesus.
With our love,
Cliff, Cristine, Sam, Avery and Katie
