Last night 17 students from 6 different nations graduated from our Discipleship Training School. It was a special night with friends and family to celebrate God’s transforming work in their lives and through their lives! They were commissioned to go forth and preach the gospel to all nations.
They received 3 months of teachings here at YWAM Minneapolis that included nature and character of God, father heart of God, evangelism, our identity in God and so many more. Edgar and I had the opportunity to teach them this past fall. For the past two months a group was in Argentina and another in South Africa/Swaziland.
Many of them have shared with us how they have seen God move in ways they have never seen before and feel so close to God. They served the homeless, broken hearted, flood victims, orphanes, and the local church.
We pray for them as they make desicions about what is next. Some of them will come back to do either the Bible Study for Discipleship course or the School of Ministry Development. Many of them will continue there education at their local university or college. We pray that they will continue to cling to God and follow Him.
As the girls get older it is harder and harder for them to say goodbye to the students. Many of the students spend hours and hours at our place and build a strong relationship with us. Last night Isabella had to keep giving hugs to everyone and she left in tears. Many of the students fly out today.
