YWAM: DTS in Germany!

September 2014--March 2015

After graduating in May from the University of Michigan with a B.A. in Communications and International Studies, I have felt God's tug on my heart to grow and develop my skills at the Youth With a Mission [YWAM] Discipleship Training School [DTS] in Nürnberg, Germany.  Called the Marriage of the Arts, the program is designed to help young writers and artists learn how to use their gifts to share God's love.  

Writing is how I connect with my soul, and my hope is to learn to better connect my words to the souls of others.  The first 3 months, I will be taking classes, creating projects, and serving with existing ministries and missions in the city of Nürnberg.  The outreach phase, the second half of the program, is where you come in. :)  

With the knowledge and experience we will have gained from the program's lecture phase, in teams we will travel to a country in either Africa or Southeast Asia to share the love that fills our hearts.  But I need you to make this mission possible.  No gift or prayer is too small to help me reach the outreach costs!  Thank you for being a part of my life and the work that God is doing in me and through me.    

Come share in my journey by checking out photos and thoughts abroad that I'll be posting here: http://imperfectintrospections.wordpress.com/.
