Not just English class! – An interview of a small group participant.

For today’s blog post we have a short interview with a guy who has become a beloved friend and family member around here. In the interview below he shares how he has experienced God since he came to a small group here the first time. This wonderful friend is now in our DTS and we love having him around to grow in Christ with us. 

– How did you first hear about YWAM port of peace? 

I first heard about YWAM Port of Peace while passing by my friend’s house in my neighborhood. One day I stopped by to see him, but he was not there. His mom let me know that he was in an English class and suggested that the next week I should go with. So I did end up going to what I thought was just an English class, but soon learned that YWAM Port of Peace is not just an English class. 

– What was your first impression and experience of the campus?

My first impression of the YWAM Port of Peace was strange, I had never really been in a place with foreigners before. But Something that I experienced that I didn’t really experience anywhere else before was that I was valued. 

– How did the staff make you feel?

Like I said before, I felt valued for the first time. 

– How has God made an impact in your life through any of the ministries on the campus?

The Bible study and worship group have really been making a big impact on my life. Before I knew about these groups on the campus I only thought there was English but now I know there is more.

For DTS, honestly, I feel really transformed by the already. I have learned how God has a heart for me and how I can have a relationship with him. 

– How was your relationship with Christ before God led you to start participating in ministries here?

Before I would go to church and I believed in God, but, I did not respect or know how to walk in a relationship with God.

– Since you have been in DTS what is the closest thing you have seen God do or teach you? There is so much that I have learned and seen God do but the one thing that really stands out was what I learned in the Father Heart of God week and Relationship week. After both these weeks, I now have learned that to know God’s heart for you, you need a relationship with him. These two things go together.
