3 Obstacles you´ll face before coming and doing your DTS

When you decide to take a leap of faith and follow God, we are sure you´ll face obstacles . Based on the stories of the many people that come and do their discipleship training school, here are 3 of the most common obstacles:

"I can't do it." - The lie that could ruin everything.

When I was 4, my dad was training a group of young men teaching them rappelling techniques (vertical descent). When I saw what they were doing, I asked my dad if I could do it as well and he said, "Yes." He explained to me how the system worked and I practiced in a flat area. Then he took me to the place we were going to descend from; it was only a 17 ft drop, but for a 4 year old kid, it felt like the top of the highest mountain! As soon as I stood on the edge, I was overcome by fear and I froze, "Is the rope strong enough? What if the harness breaks? What if I do something wrong and fall?" My mind was filled with all these questions. I started to cry and told my dad, "I can't, I can't do it." My dad fixed his eyes on mine and said, "If you believe you can't do it, you are right, the same way you'll be right if you believe you can. You can do it, I'm here, I'm holding you." His words and conviction filled me with courage and confidence, the fear diminished, and I took the first step into the void believing I could do it. With every step I took I was less afraid; I didn't just believe, I knew I could do it.

When I Wonder Why On Earth I Am Still In YWAM

I could be.

The "I could be's" are one of the enemy’s biggest assaults on YWAMers, I think. If he can get us thinking with I could be, then he’s luring us in.

I could be finished college by now.

I could have my own car.

I could be paying my own phone bill and rent and groceries, instead of having other people pay it for me.

YWAM BSN TESTIMONY - Take Your Bible Off The Shelf

Attending the BSN (Bible School for the Nations) was a desire I had during my DTS (Discipleship Training School), after growing more in my relationship with God I wanted more knowledge of His Word to be able to share with others. I had never read the bible in it’s entirety, and was a Christian for over thirty years. My bible sat on the bookshelf, and was rarely opened. I attended bible studies, but only focused on the scriptures that were referenced by the author, and even memorized a few. The bible never seemed relevant to me, and I only opened it when I was seeking answers.

The Number One Misconception Every High School Graduate Has About Their Life

"I need to know NOW (at the ripe age of 18) what I will do for the rest of my life. No, but seriously… I do. How will I choose a college, a workplace, my next step if I don't know exactly who I am, and exactly what I want to do… RIGHT. NOW. for the rest of my life?"

My Life Before and After Poverty

Never had I thought twice about the snack-cupboard that was constantly stacked full in our kitchen. Oreos, Pringles, vanilla wafers, pretzel sticks, old-fashioned potato chips, Goldfish, Ruffles, and those delicious mint girl-scout cookies, just to name a few.. Ohhhhh sweet delicious goodness.

Dear YWAM Mazatlan,

Dear YWAM Mazatlan, 

I have a lot to say to you... a lot to express. It’s hard to even begin to describe the ways that you’ve changed me, the ways you’ve impacted my life.
