hi! we're the dufoorts
We - Wim (Belgium) and Jenni (USA) - are career missionaries with Youth With a Mission (YWAM) and have been serving at YWAM Heidebeek in The Netherlands for the last 12 years together with our four children.
Wim is part of the maintenance team where he helps to steward Heidebeek's properties. Not for the properties themselves, but for the opportunities they provide for students to come from all over the world to be trained and sent out into the mission field! Jenni has served for more than a decade in prayer and worship ministries, but has recently felt the Lord leading her to place her main focus on raising our kids in this precious season!
Our missions motto is: honest faith - real change! Our practical tasks and titles change over time, but this is the driving force behind everything we do.
what is YWAM?
Youth With a Mission is a global movement of Christians from many cultures, age groups and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. We reach out in 180+ countries through three main areas: evangelism, training and mercy ministries. Worldwide YWAM has about 20,000 staff and each year we send out more that 25,000 people into short-term missions. As a movement we are called to, "know God and make Him known".
