We have been accepted to do a Discipleship Training School in Sligo, Ireland, not far from the original base Korina did her DTS back in 2007! Our prayer is to be trained up and sent to the nations to serve and share God's love. We both have a heart for hospitality and would love to bring that vision to the pioneering base YWAM Yosemite once our DTS is completed. For those of you not familiar with YWAM (Youth With a Mission), it is a nonprofit that sends those willing through a Discipleship Training School to learn more about God and what it means to be a missionary. The first three months involves a three month lecture phase and the second half will be a practical outreach phase where you put to work all you learned in lecture. Completion of a DTS is necessary to staff full time with YWAM.
Through much prayer and confirmation, we know we are called into this lifestyle. We are excited to help usher in a new YWAM base in Yosemite. I would like to use my DTS training to bring further focus to my heart for the culinary arts and sustainable agriculture to the Yosemite area and then globally, while Korina would love to gain a deeper understanding of hospitality and service alongside me.
Please prayerfully consider partnering
in support with us to do the work God has called us into. Monthly contributions or one time gifts will help to cover the cost of DTS as well as travel expenses. While on DTS the financial support you give will be used to help the needs of those in impoverished nations in both practical and spiritually supportive ways. As a means to show you where your investment is going, we will commit to consistently sharing with you, our supporters, pictures, letters, weekly updates etc. We aren't asking you to support us alone, we are asking you to support the movement God is doing. We hope you can see us as mere tools being used to further His kingdom on an international scale.
Please visit the YWAM website (ywam.org) for more information on who they are as a nonprofit and their vision for reaching the unreached poeple of the world.
The DTS starts in September of this year and finishes late February. We have found out our outreach location Is Morocco!
