Love Feast & Thoughts at the Halfway Point

We had our last meal as a full group. We call it a love feast (Check out the history of Love feast and the Moravians). It’s a time to think about God’s goodness in the past 3 months.

We also felt it on our hearts to wash our team’s feet. As leaders we wanted to lead as Jesus did, by

We are Heading Back to YWAM to Staff!

We are heading back to YWAM! We will be staffing the Classic Discipleship Training School (DTS) in Kona starting in July 2010.

What is staffing?
