First Week Done

First Week Done

Hey everyone,

Firstly, thanks for all the prayers over the last few months and weeks.

The first week of the DTS is done! This week has been one of the busiest of my life if I’m totally honest.

I arrived safely on Thursday morning after a 22 hour flight and after waiting in the airport for a few hours met up with the rest of the DTS team. We then all headed to the YWAM base. Once at the base we all unpacked and settled in.

The first few days of the DTS were Orientation days and were spent just learning more about the course, learning the rules of the base, meeting all the people on the base (including a lot of Fijians) and recovering from jetlag.

The lecture phase of the school is split into 12 weeks. Each week has a specific topic, the first week’s topic was ‘Hearing God’s Voice’! So all the students spent the week learning about how to hear from God, how to tell when God is really talking to you rather than just yourself and how to act on what God is saying.

At first I found it pretty difficult to start with, because at parts of the lectures we had to pray for another person and try to receive a word from God for that person. I struggled to tell whether the words I was getting were actually from God and not just me, but after a few days I started to be able to understand when I was hearing God.

Last Sunday we all visited Hillsong Australia, which was absolutely awesome and today (Saturday) quite a few of us visited Sydney city centre and saw the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House.

So far I’ve settled in really well, am making some great friends and also learning more about God!

A few things to pray for are:

  • That I continue to stay focused on God above anything else.
  • Good health for myself and the rest of the team.
  • Finances (still needing some more financial support for the outreach costs).

Thanks for reading and God bless,
