Marylin finally made it to Kansas city alone for 3 weeks training instead. So Asaph is in Saint Lucia with Guy as the DTS wraps-up the lecture phase and start the Outreach.
The Impact Intensive has been phenomenal so far ! We have received teachings from Mark Anderson, the founder and international director of YWAM Campaigns and Call2All, and various speakers from the International House of Prayer Kansas City (IHOPKC). The teachings are really revolutionizing our view of evangelism and discipling the next generation, and have helped to ignite more of a burning fire in our hearts for children and youth. We are also having the opportunity to visit the Global Prayer Room at IHOPKC. The experience has been invaluable. Thanks to all of you friends and family who have made it possible for me to be here at this time!
After Kansas City Marylin will continue to the Dominican Republic to attend the YWAM Caribbean Staff conference and meet the DTS students on her way back.
The passing away of Marylin's sister
Most of the week preceding Marylin's travel to Kansas City Marylin had been praying and crying for her older sister Zita who was diagnosed with terminal cancer about 8 years ago and was going through difficult times. Two days before leaving Marylin visited Zita at the hospital not knowing it would have been her last visit. While Marylin was still in the air on her way to the USA I (Guy) received the sad news that Zita had passed.
The good thing is that Zita had committed her life to Jesus a few years earlier and her last wish was to see everyone in her family do the same. We know she is in a better place.
Pray for strength and comfort for the family, her mother, siblings and especially for her two children Mc Garvin and Pauline
Discipleship Training School:
Our 5 students and 2 staff after completing the 12 weeks Lecture Phase have started their outreach phase in Saint Lucia. By mid May they will be traveling to the Dominican Republic to return for graduation in June.
At this point 4 of the 5 students have not complete the payment of their outreach fees and they are trusting God for provision. Thanks for joining us in prayer for them.
Also our two staff members, who will be taking the students on outreach, still need some finances to cover their airfare; Merlisha needs the full airfare of US$ 1000, and Nicole needs about half of that. Thanks for praying and considering investing in them too.
