“I first heard about the Word By Heart School two years ago, when my sister told me she was going to do the school in Brazil. She had participated in a one-week seminar in Germany and fell in love with the method of memorizing scripture. In the seminar, she learned by heart the story when Jesus appeared to His two followers on the road to Emmaus. When she started telling me that story, word for word from the original text, I was completely mesmerized! I had never experienced anyone tell that story in such a personal and vivid way. I immediately started searching for where and when I could be a part of this school.
After one year, I finally had the chance to take the 3-month WBH School at YWAM Lausanne. This school drastically changed the way I see Jesus Christ. By repeating His words and imagining the stories as if I was actually there, it transformed the way I read the Bible. A year has passed since I learned the Gospel of Mark by heart, but the stories are still so alive in my mind and heart!
It’s amazing to carry the words of the Bible wherever I go, knowing that nothing or nobody will ever be able to steal them from me.”
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom…” (Colossians 3:16)
