Coming Together

As you can most likely tell due to the lack of writing, it's been a full past three weeks. We have had three speakers during that time, one from the Netherlands, and two from the USA. The topics were Father Heart of God, Identity, and Relationships. This past week was the most intense, as it turned out to be a time when many points from the lectures so far started to come together to result in those Aha! moments. A huge part of DTS is about personal transformation, and having time to work through things, both of which I experienced this past week. 

The learning this week can be summed up in this verse:  Let all that you do be done in love. - 1 Corinthians 16:14. As a follow of Christ, my aim in life is to show the love of Christ through loving others. That starts with loving God, then myself, and others. In order to really help others we have to come from a place of wholeness and heath. Ultimately the aim of DTS is to not just seek an experience for yourself, but something which builds others up. It's really hard to imagine that in only 3 and a half weeks I will be departing for a new place for outreach phase!
