At the end of October many YWAM teams came together in Glasgow for a week of teaching and evangelism. The DTS students attended and had a great time. Janina shares her experience….
The goal of the gathering was to show the love of God to the people in Glasgow. Therefore, we went on different outreaches during the week. For example; serving people hot drinks, offering a boat tour, organizing a carnival for kids, and offering prayer for people.
Besides the local outreaches, we had teaching about evangelism and times of praying for Glasgow, listening to God for what he wants to say about Glasgow and do (through us) and just focusing on God and how great He is.
At the end of each day we had a testimony time where we shared what God did during the day. I personally really liked these times because it was very encouraging for me to hear about God’s work in people’s lives.
I also enjoyed the aspect of meeting new people from different YWAM bases and getting to know some of them. It was a special pleasure for me to get to know some German/Austrian people – who are also doing a DTS – and speak German to them.
The outreaches were sometimes challenging for me to talk to strangers but generally it was good to show different people that God cares about them and that we as Christians also care about them.
For me personally the best experience of the week was to really see God working in other people’s lives as well as in my own life; to see that God really cares about everyone.Another great experience for me was hearing God’s voice, which is often difficult for me to believe in. But I experienced it: He does.
