And so it begins! We have gone through a time of transition, from a busy summer to our new fall season. This week is distinctly the week of new beginnings. We had our first team come for the season, and Gleanings has launched our first Discipleship Training School (DTS) since the fall of 2014. The YWAM DTS is truly the heartbeat of any YWAM ministry, and it is a welcome change to have the DTS back!
The team from the Joyful Christian Community Church came from the Los Angeles area were true to their name! You can see the joy on their faces. As they were working, the soup plant was filled with the sound of joy and fellowship! Though they were here just a short time, they were able to produce over 1 million servings of soup mix.
Kathryn Pepper, a Gleanings staff member was recently appointed as our DTS Director, and couldn’t be happier in her new role. The DTS seeks to bring you into a more intimate relationship with God. It also gives you an opportunity to discover your passions and your part in God’s purposes for the world. It is for those who long to follow Jesus in new ways with a different perspective.
Our students are multi-cultural, multi-generational and include a family with 5 young children! Each student is unique with gifts and abilities from God. One thing, they all have in common is a “Yes!” in their heart toward missions, and serving our King!
