Week 12 Done! Lecture Phase Complete!

Week 12 Done! Lecture Phase Complete!

Hey everyone,

Just completed week 12 of the DTS! This week was the final week of the lecture phase, can’t believe how quickly it’s gone by! Thanks for all the support and prayers throughout the whole lecture phase.

This blog post will be my last one until I get back from outreach. The outreach phase will last from next Wednesday until the 17th of February. I’m really excited about all the amazing things God has in store for us over the next few months! Please continue to pray for the Byron Bay/Vanuatu team and the Thailand/Cambodia team.

Over the last few days and over the next few days both teams will be preparing dances, skits, talks and more things to do while on outreach.

For lectures this week we had our base director Etienne Pieterse talking to us on ‘Spiritual Warfare’.

One thing I learned this week was that spiritual warfare starts in the mind. Before this week started I always felt that the only way spiritual warfare was done was through the casting out of demons. Now I understand that the battle is mainly in our mind. The enemy is constantly trying to feed us lies and think impure thoughts, but if we walk in righteousness with God we can take authority over the enemy.

Another thing I learned this week is that we need to be really careful to guard our hearts and minds because eventually the things in our hearts and minds will leave our mouth. Say we gossip with others about a certain person. In our heart and mind we suddenly are looking down on that person. Eventually our feelings about that person will come out and we don’t want that to happen.

We need to put on the full armour of God in order to be ready for the attacks of the enemy.

Thanks for reading my blog and I hope you’ve enjoyed reading the weekly updates. Have a great Christmas and a happy new year!

God Bless,
