We started our largest Fire & Fragrance DTS in January with 50 staff and over 140 students. This school has been the most dynamic school we have seen yet. We have learned so much from all our training schools and are now putting it all into action. Our students are getting instantly trained and mobilized to teach and train others. Our main focuses are the preaching of the simple gospel, and going deep into the 10 basics of discipleship. It is amazing to see God changing hearts and lives through the truth of the word and teachings of Jesus!
God gave us a new vision and strategy for our outreaches. The new idea was sending larger outreach teams to a city to see breakthrough that would inspire the city, the churches and YWAM. We feel like God is leading us to see our outreach teams focus on evangelism and discipleship and build towards gatherings were we see the lost saved and the saved revived!! We are sending 9 teams of 20 or more people to LA, Washington DC, New York, Amsterdam/London, Uganda, South Africa, Nepal, India and the Big Island of Hawaii. We have faith to see more fruit than ever on these outreaches, and believe that the harvest truly is ready!!! The lost are waiting to hear the good news!!
As we write this, we are in Pasadena, California where we just have started a Fire & Fragrance community. This is our first stop of our 6 week travel journey to many of the places we will be sending the outreach teams. At the end of 2012, the Lord made it so clear to us that he was shifting our focus from being involved mostly in training the DTS's to getting ready for the great harvest that we all believe is coming and already started. So we are travelling asking God for eyes to see and ears to hear what he is dong in each location and how we can best parter with him to have maximum fruit from our short term teams. This is an exciting assignment for us, and we are going with so much faith and excitement in our heart for all that God will do!
Thank you for your continued prayers and support! I hope you enjoy our new website!!!
