To start off the New Year I have joined as a staff at YWAM Jacksonville Beach for a short time in order to be a part of the leadership of this Discipleship Training School! It has been a very exciting start to this school and my heart is overflowing with a new passion for seeing young lives transformed. God has reminded me how important it is to hear His voice and how powerful prayer is. This position I am in is forcing me more than ever before to lean on Him for everything.
We are on our fifth week in this school and God is already working in all the students and the staff. We have had countless times when God has moved in all our hearts, during worship, intercessory prayer, even after movies like ‘The Passion’ we are continually seeing these students hearts opened to the love of God and watching them change is AMAZING! God works in us when we want Him, look for Him, seek Him, and spend time with Him! Being in His presence changes us! We cannot spend time in intimate relationship with Him and not be changed.
Coming up in this school, I am going to be leading a two month outreach to Indonesia! (Team picture shown)I am excited about this opportunity! I know God is going to grow me and stretch me, it will be so good.
It is different for me to be in a leadership role, a bit uncomfortable at times but I am really learning to love it. I love initiating and enabling others, not to follow me but follow me as I follow God. That has been such a great experience.
I was invited to join a team that is heading to northeast Asia for a 2 week trip to places that Americans don’t go and there is NO access to the gospel. I have such a heart for these people!
Also my close friend was invited to go on a short trip to Russia and share the gospel, He has invited me to go with him and it has always been my desire to go to this country!
