TWoL – November, Finishing Well

This is my personal emailed newsletter called “The Way of Love.” The name is based on the name of my blog, “The Beginnings Of.” I started my blog when I started my DTS with YWAM and I knew it was the beginning of something big but I didn’t know what. I have been wondering ever since then what exactly it was the beginning of and I felt like God gave me the answer in October of 2015 at a prophetic conference while I was listening to one of the speakers: “The Way of Love.”


December 13, 2017

Hello everyone! Sorry, this update is a bit late; it will be a short one this time too.

One Thing DTS

This month was the last month in the One Thing DTS Lecture Phase. They had several speakers this month that taught on various things including “The Call of God.” They all have been tremendously impacted during this lecture phase. We wrapped up the month with a nice dinner as we prayed out the team and commissioned to go share what they have learned about following Jesus.

They will be spending three months on outreach in Thailand and Cambodia. Please keep them in your prayers. 

For the last couple weeks of the lecture phase, the DTS was able to use the classroom at the new cafe building for their teachings. It was great to begin to officially use that building after several weeks of hard work restoring it. 

Other News

This month, we also had a team from Germany come and staff with us for a week. They were a tremendous blessing in several ways. With every team that comes, we first start by giving them an orientation to our community and share the story of what God has done here. Then we ask them to take the rest of the day and seek the Father for what he has for their time with us. We make the schedule together with them based on what He reveals.For this team, one thing God showed them was to be praying for us on staff here long term. Throughout the week they kept interceding for us. It was a tremendous blessing. 

In my next newsletter, I will be reflecting back on what God has done through the whole of 2017. The month of December is really slow and quiet in general around here. If you would like to chat about anything, I will have extra time this month. Feel free to email me and we can set up a time. 🙂

Update on Katie

Katie has returned to Perth from the Philippines. She will be studying there in the advanced lecture phase until the new year. She is doing well apart from having broken a rib while being sick. Please be praying for her speedy recovery and encouragement for her as she is away from family for Christmas and New Years.
