Dear Family and Friends,
            I am so excited to share with you that I will be going to YWAM in Belize April 4th 2017. I have been praying for a while about this and have felt that the Lord is leading me in this direction. The exact location of the YWAM base in Belize is 4 miles north of San Pedro, Ambergris Caye Belize, Central America. I will be taking part in the Discipleship Training School (DTS). A DTS consists of a lecture phase and an outreach phase. The first three months of my DTS experience will take place at YWAM Destination Paradise’s oceanfront campus in Belize. Each week my DTS team will pursue God by exploring a different topic, each taught by a dynamic speaker. In addition to great teachings, my days will include small groups, one-on-one discipleship, prayer and intercession, worship, team building, and adventure opportunities. After the lecture phase, I will embark on a two-month cross-cultural outreach. I will probably face primitive living conditions, long days, hard work, and other challenges. My DTS team will live, work, worship, pray, and minister as a team. Sharing God’s love in word and deed can take many different shapes – from painting a police station or holding orphaned babies to facilitating a hospital-based vaccination program or teaching a bible study in a local church. Outreach locations are prayerfully determined during the lecture phase and could be anywhere in the world. Outreach is led by YWAM DP staff members. I am definitely excited to see what God will do while I am in YWAM. I will be returning August 19th 2017. Philippians 4:19 says: “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” I am trusting in God to provide for all my funds. I have to raise approximately $11,250. This price includes my flights and expenses for living. Therefore, if you would prayerfully consider giving to my YWAM DTS that would be great. Sadly, money given is not tax deductible. Also, if you are interested in receiving emails on how to pray for me please email me at tsheila4@dejazzd.com. I pray God blesses all of you!!

Hey everyone,
   Things in Belize are going great! I think I can officially say I am hardly homesick now. Praise God! I have been learning a lot this past week. We talked about relationships which was really cool. God's been showing me how patient he is which has been awesome. Also, I have been challenged by the question "when is the point I stop loving someone". I want to love people no matter what they have done. I want to grow in loving people from my heart, not because I feel I should but because I want to. I could use prayer for this. Also, that I would continue to grow and not become overwhelmed. Lastly, grace for these last weeks and that I would have peace as I prepare to come home. Thank you all for your prayers. I am hoping to add photos on Facebook so if our want to see some of Belize check it out. Have a fantastic day! God bless

Hey family and friends,
    I just wanted to give u another update. This week has been a little bit of an emotional rollercoaster however I know God is doing so much. This week we learned about the Love of God. One of my favorite things was we had a prophecy time for eachother Thursday where we just prayed/prophesied over one another. It was supper encouraging. Also Friday the DTS staff and the some prophesied over each one of us individually that was awesome. I know the Lord is bringing further unity to my team so thanks so much for praying for that. I am feeling more at home here and although I miss you all I really do enjoy being here. Please pray this week that I would be able to trust God in new ways. Also, that I would be able to focus and just have in increase in joy. Love you all. Have a fantastic week

previous update:
Hey I have fantastic news I found out that our outreach is in Mayreau...It's a very small island near St. Vincent in the Caribbean. I am supper pumped. Please pray for our team as we prepare... We don't have many details but it's going to be led by Zoe and Rachel 2 YWAM DTS staff members. I haven't met Zoe yet but Rachel is awesome and I look forward to having them lead. Also,.... My funds are all raised!!!!! Thank you all so much for your generous donations. Outreach costs were not as expensive as they could have been so it's awesome. I felt God encouraged me when I was accepted that he was going to provide all of the money. I had been like oh no I can pay for some of it from my savings but I still felt like God was like I am going to provide it all. Later I got a word from someone that he was my provider and I took this as confirmation. Now I am supper encouraged. I feel like God blessed my socks off. His expectations for provision were far beyond my own. I thank God for all of you who sowed into his way of provision. Praise the Lord!!
  Besides outreach I am doing good. Last week some of us went to evangelize in San Pedro and it was awesome! Also, Saturday I was able to play softball with a girls team one of the DTS staff coach. This was great! God is showing me so much of himself. There are many times I feel homesick however God is reminding me of how he is all that I need. I am out of my comfort zone but it is pushing me to rely more on God. I am often uncomfortable because God is working in my heart but it soo good. All the staff here are amazing!! I am so blessed to have a small group leader/1 on 1 leader named Hilde. She is awesome. She is always willing to pray for me or just talk and therefore I know I always have someone. I am enjoying getting to know the people on my DTS better. We have lots of fun and laughs together. Yet, we also have good moments of sharing deeper things. Thank you all so much for your prayers!
