This is another version of my message on Hope from John 11, the resurrection of Lazarus. We apply the teaching to get our hope restored, and at the end I give a word to Loren & Darlene and John Dawson, a challenge to pray bigger prayers. In Kona Hawaii, March 2007.
Is our educational leadership really different from that of the world? Message given in French with translation into English. Tom Bloomer, Burtigny, 11 July 2019
The Lord led Loren and Darlene to begin YWAM’s schools in Lausanne in order that we might pick up some pf the mantles that had fallen to the ground here: hospitality, Christian university, nonformal education for sacrificial ministry exemplified in the school of Antoine Court, and teaching the nations. This 1989 video is an introduction to these domains.
One mistake; the original bishop’s residence was the smaller building seen toward the end of the video; the fortress seen at the beginning was built centuries later.
An omission: around the feet of the statue of Justice there are four human heads, representing the Pope, the king, the emperor, and the sultan. The statue was done by a French Huguenot refugee, to emphasize the truth that all people are under the Law and subject to judgement, and that the powerful are not exempt.

The rulers and authorities that we don’t see but that do play a part in this world. A message given to the UofN CILT in Burtigny, 2017.
On Tuesday, 18 June 2019 I gave this short message to the delegates at a seminar in Geneva on alleviating poverty. They are in government and business mostly, and are seeing to learn how to influence the writing of good laws for their nations. The title I was given: ”Why Geneva? Why Now?”
P.S. My walking tour of the history of Geneva is on YouTube in 7 episodes.
If we look at the Bible, the very first way God reveals himself in the first verse of the first chapter of the first book, (that would be Genesis 1:1, as the SBS people have figured out by now) God is working!
Where do we get this idea that work is literally a punishment?
A message given in November 2016 in Lausanne, Switzerland. With translation into Mandarin, and available with English subtitles.
Many are praying for their loved ones, without success. We often pray wrongly, without thinking seriously.
What are some Biblical strategies of effective prayer?
