Another DTS season is behind us. These past 6 months have been some of my favorite ones… there was just something very unique and memorable about this DTS.
Our students graduated Friday night and it was a very joyful, tearful, and beautiful evening. Brandon and I are extremely proud of them all. We are extremely thankful for the staff who worked alongside us, who lead the outreaches, and who sacrificed these past 6 months in order to be obedient to God’s call and to usher discipleship into 17 student’s lives.
Thank you Paula, Audrey, and Philip. You are great leaders, and great friends.
Thank you Lori. You not only are an inspiring DTS Director, but you kicked butt leading the first Basic Leadership School. We love to serve and work under your guidance.
Thank you Olivia, Sherell, Riana, & Kelsey. You all grew a ton and worked so hard. It did not go unnoticed.
Most of all…. Thank you Lord for your provision, your grace, and the opportunity to do what we do, for the opportunity to grow and learn, for the chance to make mistakes and be forgiven, for the chance to love, to speak truth, to touch lives. Thank you for life itself. Thank you for redemption. Thank you.
One of our students, (yay, Jules!) made a great video slideshow that sums up the past 6 months as best as one can…. I apologize for the skipping. That is not how Jules made it, but somewhere in the file transferring, converting, and uploading it picked up some skips.
I have taken away so many great lessons, character building mistakes, and hours pressing into the heart of God. For everything, we are so grateful.
