We were so blessed and honored with exceptional training and mentorship during 2012! We enrolled in Youth with a Mission (YWAM)’s Discipleship Training School for the first five months of 2012 and then finished off the year with YWAM’s School of Evangelism (SOE). We participated in both of these programs at the beautiful and peaceful Twin Oaks Ranch at Tyler, TX. This training was intended to prepare us for a life-long career in full-time missions as a family. But the training we received during 2012 didn’t just help us become better missionaries, it helped us become better spouses, better parents, better friends, and better children of God! We learnt what it looks like to be both Christ’s hands (serving, feeding, training, organizing, etc.) and Christ’s hearts (praying, caring, hugging, listening, etc.). We know God loves us dearly and is preparing us for many years of service for His kingdom as He has invested so much into our personal growth!
