School of Evangelism and Pioneering  Muthu, Kavitha, and family More than half of the world’s population lives in cities and this poses a tremendous challenge to the churches today. YWAM developed SOUM to equip the students and urban workers to meet the challenges of the cities and bring transformation. During SOUM the students will visit various shopping malls, banks, companies, IT offices, colleges, poor neighborhoods, and so forth to learn about bringing transformation in all areas of the city. The students will also learn from people from various fields in the classroom-like bankers, professors, lawyers, government officials, beggars, rag pickers, street children, vegetable vendors, slum dwellers and other people. After the completion of SOUM, the students will have gained all the needed knowledge and experience to work in cities of India and beyond. We will try to help graduates to start new ministries or work in existing ministries around the world. How are you? How is your family? Hope you are all well. By the grace of God, we are all doing well. We want to thank the Lord for all the He has done! We really want to thank you for your love and prayers!
