Transformation DTS testifies to God’s faithfulness

Trans4mationDTS_website

After seven weeks ministering in two different nations, the 10 students from the Transformation Discipleship Training School returned Nov. 5 to YWAM Lausanne, telling stories of how God proved faithful time and time again.

 

The students and two staff members served God and the people of two nations in Asia for their outreach time. They participated in ministries that included working with street children, holding a worldview seminar, helping with a medical clinic, interceding for nations, sharing the Gospel and more.

 

Through it all, they said they could feel the nearness of God and see how He was faithful to them in the big and small things.

 

“Encouragement from God made me feel comfort and security,” said Ji Hye, a DTS student from South Korea.

 

She said one time God showed her His faithfulness on outreach was when she befriended a waitress from Central Asia. Through just spending time together and then having honest conversations about God and what it means to have a relationship with Him, the girl decided to follow Jesus.

 

Ji Hye said before the team left, the girl told them, “Thank you for leading me to the truth.”

 

The students also had the opportunity to share what they had learned during the 12-week lecture phase of DTS. During the lecture phase, the students had studied the Bible to discover who God is in the different spheres of society, which include the church; family; economics; government; education; health and science; arts and entertainment; and communication.

 

While on outreach, they taught what they learned about the spheres at a youth conference for more than 200 young people. In addition, the students organized a “mini-DTS” where they taught for three days on topics that they had studied during DTS, such as the fear of the Lord, identity and evangelism to about 25 young people.

 

DTS School Leader Rhoda said it was an amazingly fruitful time as the students continued to learn from God through teaching and investing into the lives of other youth.

 

Through the duration of their time on outreach, the students said God was faithful during their ministry times and to them personally.

 

Ben, a DTS student from the United States, said the team drew encouragement from the words of Psalm 73. Verse 28 of Psalm 73 says, “But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all your works.”

Sprungbrett alumni celebrate together

sprungbrettunited

YWAM Lausanne welcomed alumni from its Sprungbrett program Nov. 2 in a joyous, daylong reunion that included times of worship and reconnecting with old friends.

 

Sprungbrett, which means “springboard” in Swiss German, is a 10-month program created by YWAM Lausanne for Swiss youth between the ages of 15 and 17.

 

The whole community gathered Sunday morning to greet the returning students and to hear a message from staff member Daniel Esmeraldo. Drawing from 2 Corinthians 3:12-18, Daniel urged the listeners to focus on Jesus as the only source of Truth in the midst of their circumstances.

 

“Fix your eyes on Jesus,” he said. “Set your hope on the truth of who God is.”

 

The former Sprungbrett students then had the opportunity to reunite with past leaders of the program and also with each other throughout the day.

 

About 70 Swiss youths have completed the Sprungbrett program since it began in 2008. Incorporating a traditional YWAM Discipleship Training School with a lecture and outreach phases, Sprungbrett also contains Bible and worldview seminars.

 

YWAM Lausanne plans to run the Sprungbrett program in the upcoming 2015/2016 school year.
