Nikita is at YWAM!
As you all would know, I am currently doing a DTS (Discipleship Training School) with YWAM up on the coast at Tahlee! I have already been here for 2 months and I have enjoyed every moment of it!! I am in an incredible school with two other students and three staff, they have been such a blessing to me and shown me how special it is living in close community with other people walking the same journey with Jesus.
For the first 12 weeks of DTS we have what is called lecture phase. I have been learning so much and growing deeply in my relationship with the Lord. Some of the units we have studied include Nature and Character of God, Fear of the Lord, Intimacy with God, Holy Spirit and Spiritual Authority among others. We have had so many amazing speakers that have helped us all further our relationship with God, even if some weeks we have had to learn over zoom due to lockdown!
In 3 weeks our lectures come to a close and we move onto the second phase of DTS - Outreach! I am so pumped to go out and practice what we have been learning, and to disciple and minister to people at every opportunity I have. We have recently been told the locations that my school will be visiting on outreach - these are Broken Hill, Orange, Peak Hill, Toowoomba and Boggabilla. Even though times are difficult at the moment with lockdowns happening all across the state, we are still praying that God makes a way for us to visit each of these places and give us the opportunity to step into the role of becoming young missionaries.
I do need help though to make outreach possible!
To go on outreach, I need to raise $3,200 in the next short while to cover my fees for the 9 weeks we are away from the base. This money goes towards travel costs, food and gifts and donations to the people we visit etc.
I am praying and relying fully on God that these funds come in on time. If anyone feels that the Lord has placed on their heart to donate towards my outreach fees, I will provide my bank details down below so you can direct transfer. I am so incredibly grateful already for every single one of my church family, and even if God does not lead you to donating, keeping me and my DTS school and the Outreach plans in your prayers would be such a blessing for us!!
I pray that you are all well and that God blesses you richly!
Much love, Nikita
