Vae and his wife Julie, during the late 80s, directed Pacific Waves, a YWAM ministry located in Canada. This multi-cultural discipleship team draws Pacific Islanders to Canada as missionaries, where they minister into many cultures – especially Canada´s First Nations.
In 2012 Vae and Julie moved to the YWAM University Of The Nations in the Kona, Hawaii. Vae is part of the University Council. He also works with Wycliff Bible Translators. Vae & Julie have four children.
