It´s time to learn...

The Discipleship Training School has already started at YWAM El Salvador!

This is a new exciting challenge for me because I will be interpreting most of the classes and activities for Simo-Ott – our student from Estonia. This means that I will use English vocabulary from Europe and not from the United States as I am used to. For instance, I will say "mobile" instead of "cell phone." There will also be concepts to explain to him because of this “new Salvadorian culture” he is living in.

Regarding the Bible lessons, it feels like I will have Aaron’s position and responsibility to convey God’s message through a Moses (a teacher). On Exodus 4:15 and 16, God tells Moses, “You shall speak to him (Aaron) and put words in his mouth; I will help both of you speak and will teach you what to do. He will speak to the people (Simo-Ott) for you, and it will be as if he (Aaron) were your mouth and as if you (Moses) were God to him.”

We will be teaching/learning one-week lessons on topics such as "How to Hear God´s Voice", "Quiet Time", "Intercession", "Fasting", "Biblical Worldview", "Evangelism", and "Missions."
There will be a total of 12 weeks of lecture and then the students will go on outreach for 8 weeks to share what they have learned in their training. That is why our motto is "To know God to make Him Known!"

Prayer requests

1. That I may be a cultural interpreter between Simo and Salvadorians.
2. That I will be able to convey God’s message with accuracy to Simo.
3. The planning and resources for a 4-month trip to the United States.
4. My family
5. Elections for President in El Salvador in March.
