It’s week 8. I can’t believe it’s already been 2 months of DTS! The school has been amazing so far and I’ve learned so much. Each week we have a different speaker come in to teach in our lectures; so far we’ve had teaching on the Father Heart of God, God’s character, What is Discipleship, Worldview, Identity in Christ, The Trinity, and lots of other teaching wedged in between.
Each student has assigned work duties and I got to be on grounds keeping with Brennyn, Kim, and Phil! This is, in my opinion, the best job because we get to be outside all the time ❤ Sometimes it’s really wet and cold but it’s worth it in the end.
This last week, Wednesday the 21st to Sunday the 25th, our team went to Belfast Northern Ireland as a mini outreach to come alongside a local church in the city and help them with events that they were hosting that week. I personally got to be involved in door to door evangelism, prayer on the streets, an event for elementary aged kids, an event raising money for the local cancer research center, and our last event was called Epic and it was designated for kids aged 12-16. On Sunday, I had the privilege of sharing at a small community church in Belfast about our week and how God touched me personally through it all. That was an experience that I will cherish forever. I struggle to find words to type that explain how touching speaking in the church was for me. God revealed so much to me through the week in Belfast. He pushed and encouraged me to do the hard stuff… the things that yank me right out of my comfort zone. But through the hard things and the new things I’ve discovered how I really have a heart for the work God has been doing there and it’s become a huge inspiration to me to see the body of Christ working together to fulfill the great commission.
I’m excited to continue serving with this team in South Africa starting December 8th!!
But… there’s a hiccup. I have not paid off my school fees yet so I wasn’t able to book my plane ticket to South Africa with the rest of the group last Wednesday. The school is paid off in 3 increments… #1 Lecture Phase ($2,200) #2 Outreach Phase ($2,150) #3 Outreach flights (around $950)…. I have to completely pay off the lecture phase before they can book my ticket to SA and I still have $600 left to pay for lecture phase.
