Hi! My name is Cassandra Cavin. I am from Minneapolis, Minnesota and I have been serving in YWAM (Youth With A Mission), primarily in México, since September 2006. After completing two five-week internships in Monterrey and a six-month Discipleship Training School (DTS) in Mazatlán, I returned to YWAM Mazatlán in May 2007 as a long-term missionary. I spent 6 years on staff in Mazatlán, doing all kinds of different jobs. I also spent 1½ years in Mexico City working with MegaCities (A YWAM ministry based out of Perth, Australia) and serving in a local church.

I love the world and cultures and missions!! My heart and passion is really to work with youth, teaching them about God’s love, sharing my passion for missions, and helping them to get involved in mission work and humanitarian relief efforts in other nations. I love working alongside the local churches, reaching out into the community to reveal how God is always longing to do amazing things with ordinary people. I have had many different responsibilities with YWAM, including leading DTS's, planning and leading outreaches throughout Mexico and other parts of the world, running the kitchen, translating, and running the hospitality department.

2014 is a year of change and adventure for me. Throughout 2013, I prayed a lot about my future and God revealed quite a surprising plan to me! I left YWAM Mazatlan in the beginning of February 2014. It was very hard to leave such an amazing community, but I knew that my time there had come to an end. I am so grateful to all the people in Mexico who invested so much in my life over the past 7½ years.

After spending a few weeks at home, I will be going to Lausanne, Switzerland to do a 3-month On-Location BCC (Bible Core Course). This advanced YWAM training will make me more effective in my ministry by developing growth in my teaching, discipleship, and leadership skills. After I complete this training, I will be returning to the Philippines to work with YWAM Cebu. While we were there on outreach in 2013, God really broke my heart for the Filipino people and started speaking to me about going back there. I spent a lot of time prayerfully considering this option, and God has confirmed to me in many different ways that this is where He is bringing me next. I am excited to see more of what God has for me in the Philippines and in this new season of my life!
