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 firstname.lastname@example.org. I pray God blesses all of you!!
