Leah and Adam Thompson have been in YWAM for the last 17 years. Adam is from New Zealand and Leah is from Canada. They have a passion to create a platform for young people to be released into the mission field and to fulfill their God-given calling. They pioneered a YWAM campus in Paris in 2017 and have been excited to see God establish them over the last 4 years!
