Seven Weeks Down, Five More to Go!
The Lecture Phase of a DTS is similar to climbing a mountain.
It starts out pretty gradual, there's beautiful trees and plants all around as you begin to walk. The incline gradually gets steeper but the climb is still easy. You don't really notice how high you've climbed until you break above the treeline. Suddnely you turn and look out over the valley and realize that you've gained substantial altitude!
I’ve now spent five weeks here at YWAM Davos which has been incredible to say the least. The atmosphere of the city we are in, the home I live in, and the people I get to live with all create a place where I can thrive in my relationship with Jesus and explore how to live in a culture of honour. Over the past several weeks I’ve learned how to adapt to living with others even when we come from totally different cultures and understanding how sometimes we need to make sacrifices or small changes in order to work best with one another. On the other hand it is so sweet being able to mesh so incredibly well with others from the snowboarding/skiing community and share our love for Jesus through that.
It’s been three weeks jam-packed with excitement!
The first week went like most first weeks go - getting used to a new schedule and settling in.
The second week dove in a little deeper as we talked about living a life dedicated to sharing the love God has for each of us.
The third week talked about relationships and what God’s intention is for them, both in the romantic and non-romanic sense.
