1 Step For A 1,000

I laugh now when I reminisce on how not too long ago, I thought all could be done by my own strength, my own ideas and my own “wisdom”. Four months ago I was encouraged to leave; leave all I had behind to take an ultimate step. It was more like a leap off a cliff into rapids. Little did …

When God’s Timing Isn’t Your Timing

“What if it was all for my own good? What if the struggles I face are also for a reason?” As a older single female, I have times where I struggle with still being single. I’ll sit and wonder why I’m not married; why it seems like almost everyone around me is either dating someone or married. Don’t get me …

A DTS Story – Part Two: Restoration For The Heart and Soul

As the time for my Medical DTS  got closer, I assumed that I would be arriving in Kona and jumping straight into medical seminars and trainings about how to be a medical missionary. I was SO wrong. DTS was so full of love, joy, and excitement about life when you walk with God. It taught me how to heal my …

A DTS Story – Part One: Thousands Raised To Do A DTS

My name’s Heather and I’m from the state of Virginia, just outside of Washington, D.C. I’m a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. My story of how I came to do a Discipleship Training School (DTS) and how I even ended up at Ships is quite interesting.

“I Never Wanted To Be A Preacher. I Didn’t Want To Be That Preacher Person.”

Jacob Davis, a student currently finishing up the lecture phase of his YWAM Ships DTS, hails from Winfield Kansas. He grew up without a christian upbringing, which meant he knew right from wrong but not about God. Last year Jacob was in Teen Challenge, a faith-based facility that helps individuals of all ages overcome life-controlling problems and addictions. Coming out …

In The Land Of Youth

Like a giant among men, here I stand Monday morning in worship amongst a sea of young people. I don’t feel out of place as one of God’s children but there are times when I can see and feel the difference of when I did my DTS all those years ago compared to this YWAM community filled with staff and …

What More Do We Need To Be Obedient?

When I’m waiting for confirmation from God on situations, I like His answers to be big and bold. If it was an option, I’d totally go for the unmistakable “writing in the sky” style of communication. But sometimes I can find myself using a lack of big and bold signs to hide behind complacency. I justify not talking to someone …

Waiting with Faith

For a large portion of my life I’ve always felt like I was waiting for something. Like I was standing in a place of in between. Holding my breath because I knew something better was coming. Sometimes I waited for months. Sometimes just 47 days. Years later in some situations, I am still waiting. I’ve been waiting for God to …

Adventure Comes From Risk: Saying Yes To Jesus

When my fiancé and I were first approached with an invitation to go to YWAM Ships Kona new ship, the m/v YWAM Liberty, to help get her ready for operation as a medical vessel, our reaction was to laugh loudly.

He Wants It All

I thought that I was sold-out for God. I was working as a missionary, volunteering and engaging in my local church, and I thought I had given everything over to Him. Emphasis on “I thought…” About a couple years ago I returned from a summer of interning/serving around Europe. We had served with and supported many local churches, spent numerous …

Be Fully Known In This Season

Spring has always been one of my most favorite seasons. It’s a time filled with refreshing weather, new flowers blooming, and it has meant a transition in my routine for as long as I could remember.

What Am I Supposed To Do With My Life

Junior college was something I did right after high school. Not because I wanted to, but because I didn’t know what else to do. I enjoyed the atmosphere of being in college but I wasn’t motivated to succeed. I didn’t know what to study so I enrolled in general education and would sometimes fail half the classes I signed up …
