As many of you who are somewhat familiar with YWAM know, the Discipleship Training School (DTS) is the starting point for anyone interested in YWAM. It is a 5 month long intense discipleship program.
Not because of anything the staff do, but because we have a great God who is able to accomplish these things.
Staff do play a part in the process though. There are plenty of preparations that need to happen to ensure that the process isn't hindered because of some character or logistical error. Which means we have work to do!
The next DTS starts in just 2 weeks on July 6. We are getting ready for 10 students to be joining us on campus 24/7 for what will be one of the most impactful seasons of their lives. 6 Ladies and 4 guys.
I realize that you aren't physically here with us to encourage and challenge these 10 people, but please be praying for them. These are the next wave of missionaries going out from YWAM Haiti to the nations! Pray that they would be willing to hear God's voice and act on it, that they would confront their own lives and lay them down, and ultimately that they would know God and make Him known.
As I mentioned before we have some preparations to make for the students. Meal plans, class schedules, small groups, one-on-ones, and every detail of each week of class.
Here are some pictures of our scouting trip this last week to the location where one of the weeks is going to happen.
It's easy to forget sometimes but Haiti is a really beautiful country. Rugged but beautiful. Just like it's people.
And in case you are wondering, yes it was a glorious feeling taking off those boots! I just had to stop and take a selfie.
Thank you to everyone who helped out with all the yard sales that have been happening the past couple months, whether you organized or just stopped by to purchase a few new goodies for your home! Through the yard sales we were able to raise enough money for the round trip flights from Haiti to Colorado in October!
Please be praying for couple things before you go.
1. That we would raise enough money for the inverter system. Only $2,200 to go!
2. That I would be able to know how I specifically am called to be a blessing to Haiti, in this season before going to Port de Paix
