Eric and Plamena Williamson – Kona Hawaii

Eric and Plamena Williamson, a married couple with over 15 years of combined ministry, work with Youth With A Mission (YWAM). Their vision for ministry includes justice ministries, the transformative power of the Bible, and to see Japanese Christians equipped to go out and minister to the world.

Their work over the last few years has included: staffing bilingual English/Japanese Discipleship Training Schools, Voice for the Voiceless tours in Tokyo to raise awareness about justice issues, the Hakani Project to end infanticide in Brazilian jungle tribes, leading ministry teams of young people into Japan/ teams from Japan into other nations, teaching Bible study to Japanese Christians, and joining relief efforts in Iwaki alongside Japanese Christians following the March 2011 tsunami.

The Williamson’s ministry has taken them to numerous nations (Turkey, Fiji, a couple of closed nations, Japan, Mexico, Honduras, USA, Brazil, and Bulgaria), and allowed them to meet a variety of people. Their time ministering in YWAM schools gives them the opportunity to teach students who in turn take what they learned to the rest of the world.

They are currently spearheading a new School of Biblical Studies (SBS) with YWAM’s Kona and Honolulu Hawaiian Islands bases. This new equipping program for YWAM students is set for release in April 2012.

Their ministry has given them a heart for the people of the world, and with their current work in SBS they will impart this heart to their students as well as equipping them to effectively study and communicate the Gospel where ever God may lead. The Williamsons hope to take this SBS into Japan following the prototype 2012 school.

The Williamsons personal monthly expenses for housing, utilities, transport, food, etc., come in at $3000. Currently they have $1000 committed monthly support and are still in need of another $2000 per month.

They are looking for ministry partners to lift them in prayer and sow into them financially that they may accomplish the tasks that God has set before them.
