Welcome to an inside look as students, as we begin the first phase of our Discipleship Training School or DTS this May 2011. Please join us as we grow in our faith, live life in community and dive into great adventure together!
This week we are getting to know one another and spend time together in our new community here at Destination Paradise in San Pedro, Belize. This is the first of twelve weeks spent studying and learning more about our faith. With staff and students there are people from five different countries represented! All of us are coming from different places and backgrounds to be trained in missions.
It was difficult to know what to expect before we got here. But it’s already apparent that God has brought an amazing group together. After only two weeks together, we have formed strong ties. Not only have we spent time together in lectures, worship, devotions, and leadership training, but we have also experienced the amazing creation around us. Sun, sand, and scuba.
One of the first steps in learning to live together in community is seeing ourselves as a team and being able to work together.
Through “team building” exercises we practice problem solving and leadership. So, if it is on the volleyball court or helping to build an orphanage on outreach, we will know each others’ strengths and weaknesses.
Make sure and stay posted because this is the first of many blogs to come over the next twelve weeks. Whether you are family, friends or just someone who is considering a DTS, we are excited to share our lives and experiences with you!
