With God and my team beside me, I was able to do things i never imagined i could do.
Through the power of Jesus I was able to see God heal people from their pain and to share the love of god with them
Dts was one of the best and most transformative experiences of my life. The greatest testimony of it was being able to really hear Gods voice daily.
Your questions answered.
How do I find God’s calling for my life?Discovering God’s call for your life starts with what He’s already asked us to do—love God and love others. This starts in community as you serve others. In the process you will discover your gifts and develop a skill set. Sometimes it's about just going forward and moving. Finding God's calling is a process. We believe in you! Here are a few more steps... Prayer: Begin by communing with God. Engage in regular, heartfelt conversations, seeking His guidance, wisdom, and a receptive heart. Scriptural Study: Delve into the Bible, a wellspring of inspiration and wisdom. Explore stories and verses that resonate with your heart and your potential calling. Reflect on Passions: Reflect on your passions and interests. God's calling often aligns with what moves you and where your strengths lie. Listen to the Lord: God wants to speak to you. He wants to help you to hear His voice. Service and Volunteer Work: As you help others, you may discover your calling through the joy and fulfillment it brings. Patience: Understand that discerning your calling can be a gradual process. Trust in God's timing and be patient as you seek clarity. Follow Inner Peace: Look for a profound sense of peace and alignment when considering a potential calling. God's calling often resonates deeply within your spirit. Remember that finding your calling is a lifelong journey. Sometimes when we jump start following Him and obeying, everything fits into place. Keep an open heart and don't be afraid to be a radical follower of Jesus. Is he asking you to GO? Do a DTS? Bless someone? Go for it!🙏🌟

When should I do a DTS?That's a fantastic question. Should you dive into a DTS right away, or is it too early? Here's my take: I decided to do my DTS during my university years. My main goal was to deepen my connection with God and fine-tune my ability to hear Him. I can honestly say I don't regret that choice. It set me on the right path, helped me navigate life, and even improved my relationship with my parents. Plus, I genuinely got to know God better. I loved my DTS experience! Now, should you wait until after college to pursue a DTS? There isn't a one-size-fits-all answer to that. Some folks find it beneficial to complete their college journey first and then embark on a DTS to give them more flexibility for what lies ahead. Others opt for a DTS before hitting the university scene, using it as a solid foundation. It ultimately depends on your individual path. Totally ask for God's guidance, He wants to speak to you. And how about working for a while before going for a DTS? My advice is to seek God's wisdom and trust in His plan. You might decide to stick with your job, or you could take a leap and join a DTS even on short notice. Sometimes, when we say "yes" to God, He has a way of working things out. Here's the bottom line: Don't be anxious. It's great to plan and be financially prepared, but remember that God can surprise us with His timing and provision. So, no need to worry, my friend. Go for what you feel God is calling you to do. Why not take a moment right now, wherever you are, to pause and have a heart-to-heart with God? Listen to that inner voice, trust it, and follow His guidance. It's totally worth it. 🙏
