Youth With A Mission, the missions organization that Felipe and I serve through is an international, inter-denominational missions organization highly focused on training people to impact the world for Christ.
At the Lighthouse Community Center, twice a year, there is a Discipleship Training School (DTS ) offered for Portuguese speakers and English speakers. The teaching phase lasts for 3 months and the outreach/missions trip phase lasts for about 2 months. DTS is designed to help people understand God more deeply, live more like Jesus and identify unique gifts and purpose in life to use in missions.
Today, a new DTS began here at the Lighthouse with students from the nations of Holland, Switzerland, the United States, and Brazil!
In order to serve with YWAM, one must complete a DTS. It is amazing to think in September of 2005 I was just beginning my DTS in Denver, Colorado and praying about becoming a full time missionary in Brazil. Today, almost 5 years later, I am serving with my husband in Brazil and living out my dream of reaching hurting children with the love of Christ.
If you would like to dedicate 5 months of your life to growing close to God and serving in missions in Brazil, come to the Lighthouse for a DTS. Contact us for more details! :)
