I have been accepted to participate in a Discipleship Training School (DTS) which is a training school with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Minneapolis. YWAM is an international, interdenominational Christian mission agency. For 50 years, YWAM has been mobilizing young adults, like me, to help meet the needs of and minister to hurting people worldwide.
Specifically, a Discipleship Training School (DTS) is an intensive Christian training course designed to encourage students in personal character development, cultivating a living relationship with God and identifying their unique individual gifts and callings in God. Cross-cultural exposure and global awareness are special emphases throughout the course. I will have the opportunity to strengthen my relationship with God and to share the love of Jesus through drama, service work, and one-on-one evangelism. I am excited to be given the honor of being God’s hands and feet in places of great need.
The Discipleship Training School in Minneapolis begins January 9th, 2011 and runs through May 26th, 2011. The cost of the school is $3,250 for the lecture/classroom portion and approximately $2,300 (this includes the cost of international airfare) for the outreach portion. Currently, I have $1,150 toward the total cost.
I would like to invite you to be a part of what God has called me to do. Would you prayerfully consider supporting me for this mission school? I need to raise $2,100 by January 9th, 2011 in order to go. I would consider it a privilege to have you on my team for this exciting opportunity, and I believe the Lord will bless us BOTH through this experience. I also need your prayer support leading up to and throughout my DTS. Either or both means of support would be greatly appreciated. :)
Thank you for your time and consideration. It would be great to have you partner with me in working towards the completion of the Great Commission.
