Saying goodbye. . .

Our oldest is off on his first real adventure away from home. . .

On a recent missions trip to Ensenada, Mexico, Mike’s eyes were opened to the next step in the path God has for him.  Discipleship Training School (DTS). 

The YWAM DTS is designed to encourage students to develop in personal character, to cultivate a living relationship with God, and to identify their unique individual gifts and callings.

The program aims to prepare strong messengers of the gospel, helping students to know God in depth. The goal is to form Christian character and establish Biblical relationships while developing a daily walk with God.

This intensive training course begins with a 12 week classroom phase followed by an 8 week outreach.

Yes, I pulled the info off the website, but I can’t say it any better than they do :)

It was a day of mixed emotions as we said goodbye to Mike. . .

Awww, sweet family picture! I do hope YOU got a picture WITH Mike, too! Hey, he even got his hair cut! *wink*

We'll be praying for him as he goes through his journey with YWAM DTS!

Blessings,

Thanks :) Not so funny thing, I had the camera and video camera and dealing with tears from kids. . I didn't even get to kiss him. I had to text the kiss. :( Makes me want to cry thinking of it. I can't believe it. How dumb!
I do love his hair cut too :) Thanks for your prayers!
Love, Tina

OK, you made me cry thinking about the kids all crying and you not getting a good goodbye. I bet he is having a great time though. Will he be able to come home for Christmas?
