Luke here, This year is going to be HUGE!
We began this summer by refreshing our facilities here at YWAM Northwoods. I was a part of a big bathroom remodel project that we finished a couple of weeks ago. We are hoping to remodel the Mens portion of the dorm, and replace all the windows and siding on the main lodge. We don’t have a start date for those projects yet, but we hope to see them happen in 2013. Cheyenne is also one of our “campus decorators” now and has been making a lot of awesome changes to our surroundings here.
DTS (Discipleship Training School) (Discipleship Training School)Discipleship Training School)
We are also taking a lot of summer time preparing for our upcoming DTS in September where Cheyenne and I will still be serving as Discipleship staff. So if you know anyone interested in a Discipleship School with an overseas outreach, let us know! We are really excited about the direction our school is going. Being a part of discipling young people and witnessing them finding a deeper relationship with Jesus is an incredible and humbling thing.
And here is where I let Cheyenne tell you about a new summer program she is spearheading;
Hey all! This Summer I have the privilege to begin a new Summer program here at Northwoods. It’s called “Infusion”. It is a 10 day intensive Discipleship program for undergrad students (14-19 years old). Since I’ve seen our DTS change post-graduates lives I have had a desire to offer the same taste of DTS to the younger teens of our generation. Why wait? Highschoolers do not need a diluted Gospel with no call to action on their lives- they need a jump start on what it means to be a Disciple of Christ in our world. Pray for myself & Luke and we prepare for this! Our first annual “Infusion” will begin July 28th and run through August 9th. You can go to our website for more information at http://www.ywamnorthwoods.org, look under the “schools” option.
So as I said, we are excited to be working with the Discipleship Training School again this fall. There hasn’t been a single school where we haven’t seen God change lives is a radical way. We are doing this all while planning for our 2014 THAILAND TRIP! We are beginning the process of getting visas to stay in Thailand for 6-8 months instead of 2! Our plan is to leave in January 2014 and return in July or August 2014. We will be teaching English in Nahong, distributing bibles, discipling believers and continuing the work to bring the gospel to Northern Thailand. We will tell you much more about our 2014 Missions trip as it approaches.
We love you all so much! Thank you for being there for us and being a part of our lives even if sometimes we can’t see you as much as we would like.
Hebrews 12:28-29 “Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.” A kingdom that cannot be shaken! God bless you all,
