Meet Elisa

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Elisa is from Finland and before coming on the DTS she was studying nursing in Finland.

How did you end up on the YWAM Carlisle DTS?
Last spring I felt God call me to take some time to spend concentrating on Him. Friends told me about YWAM and DTS, so I looked at different websites and the YWAM Carlisle one stood out to me. I liked that it’s a smaller DTS. If I thought about it a year ago I would have said ‘no way!’ But I felt God give me a real peace about it. Friends and family said they would support me financially and God provided all the funds I needed partly by giving me a job in the summer and through family and friends.

You’ve been here for a few days now; what have your first impressions been?
It seems the staff here have close relationships with one another and it’s a safe and loving environment. I can be myself here and I don’t have to be more religious than I am! I was positively surprised that there is such an emphasis on the Holy Spirit from the start.

What has God done in your life since you arrived here?
He has given me a peace that I’ve made the right choices to be here. He really has guided me here! He’s also been confirming things he’s told me before and given me more clarity. I’ve been given words of knowledge and prophetic words from people I’ve never met before that have lined up with what God has said before.

What hopes and expectations do you have of God during this DTS?

I hope that God will clarify the plans he’s got for me after DTS. I’m also looking forward to knowing Him better and learning how to be His hands and mouth to people that don’t know Him yet. And I believe God has called me to work with kids, so I’m very excited about outreach in Brazil!

It is an exciting time at YWAM Carlisle. The September DTS is approaching, with only one week left until this school starts. It is going to be an amazing adventure, and God is going to move in big ways. We are really looking forward to seeing what God is going to do in our lives, in the lives of the trainees, and in the lives of so many others.

Time for a new adventure!

DO YOU THINK GOD MIGHT BE CALLING YOU… to take some time to get to know him more and explore what missions might look like? Are you hungry for more of God? Do you think it might be time to pack your bags and go on an adventure with God?

There are still spaces available on the DTS: e-mail Emma Wagner: for more information or check out our website:

DTS is a life changing experience where you get three months of going deeper into God. You get input from worldclass speakers from all around the world, and time to process what you’re learning together with the team. Then you get to go on outreach to put into action that which you’ve learnt. You’ll get awesome opportunities to share God’s love. This year we are planning for outreach to go to Brazil.

On the 18th September our next DTS starts – and yes, there are still spaces available! We are so looking forward to what God is going to do in each of the trainees’ lives and can hardly wait for the adventure to begin!

This autumn we are looking forward to the new September DTS which starts on Saturday the 18th. We still have some spaces, so if you’re interested in doing the DTS at YWAM Carlisle this autumn, send us an e-mail:

Have a look at our website for more information:

‘I thought I knew a lot about God and myself…but then I did a DTS and God broke out of the box that I had put Him in for so long. He is continuing to mess me up, in an incredibly good way. God never ceases to surprise me and I have a desire now to press in and learn more about who He is and who He has created me to be. I have been so blessed by the people here as well and this experience has been amazing and life-changing.’ – Hannah, 19, USA
