Today the January DTS of 2011 begins. We’re expectant and excited to see what God will do during this DTS, and look forward to all that God has for this group of people.

Here’s a short testimony from ‘J’, who did the January DTS in Carlisle in 2010.

‘I have always felt God wanting me to do ‘mission work’ but the main thing stopping me was smoking. I had been smoking from the age of 14. At the start of the year I contacted YWAM Carlisle and they were willing to take me as I was; with the smoking and all the rest of the baggage I had gathered over the 24 years of my life. They took me and with help from the Holy Spirit I was completely changed. I quit smoking 1 1/2 months after being on the DTS and slowly, over the 5 1/2 months I was there, I was reshaped. And all that became my true beginning. The DTS gave me solid and true biblical teaching, I made friends of many, many different nationalities, I got to see people healed, talk to a bounty hunter, lead random but cool church meetings on mountains in Africa, see people lives completely change.

God can and wants to take you from wherever you are and turn you into someone ready for action. Now I’m in a country where Christians are persecuted. Forget about Sunday 10am-12pm church services. Learn what church really is all about. It won’t make you some high and holy perfect saint; but it will give you a solid foundation…’
