New and exciting things are happening here at YWAM DP. This year we are running four Disciple Training Schools and two secondary level schools, Bible School for the Nations and Foundations in Counseling Ministry. God has been opening up some exciting new doors for us to grow our ministry here on the island of Ambergris Caye. On base, we live in casitas, which are a small houses. It is essentially a one bedroom one bath home. Student casitas house four people with two sets of bunk beds, and staff casitas house three people with three twin beds. We also have guest rooms that either have two double beds, a full bed, or a king size bed.
Up until recently, these accommodations have been great. However, as we have been following God’s guidance in expanding and growing the ministry, our focus has been expanded too. We have always enjoyed having families visit and stay with us, but it was hard for them to stay in one casita comfortably. In addition, our secondary schools have brought in two amazing staff members who have families that will be joining them here on base. All of these new additions posed the question, how can we accommodate more families? After a lot of prayer and consideration, we decided to add a room onto the back of two of our beachfront casitas. We are very excited about our new family casitas. They have two bedrooms and one bathroom. The back bedroom has four bunk beds, storage, and a closable door to the main room that has a king size bed and a closet area.
Living on the island is sometimes challenging. Lumber and supplies for this job had to be brought in from the mainland, which was very expensive. We are so blessed to have these two new casitas and we are trusting God because He always provides when we obey Him.
We would like to invite you to bring your family and come check out what God is doing here in San Pedro!
