Soured Manna

By Lindsey Brown on October 7, 2021 2:21:06 PM NZDT

In desperation you cry out to the Lord for provision. He shows up, and suddenly manna from Heaven practically falls into your lap. The job, the money, the friendship, the opportunity-God has given you exactly what you needed in exactly the right moment. But what happens when the manna starts to sour?

How My DTS Impacts My Work Today

By Nicki Smith on April 8, 2021 11:12:03 AM NZST


I’ve served as a YWAM missionary for over 10 years now. I work with the traveling community: young adults on a gap year, traveling the world, looking for adventure and hoping to ‘find themselves.’ This is a relational ministry. It’s about knowing how to connect with people from different backgrounds of culture, religion and experiences. I need to know how to effectively share the Gospel, meet their needs, pray with them and teach scripture. I encounter many different world views, new age beliefs and atheism as I work with backpackers. My passion for this work, my training and experience all came from my time as a student and staff on the DTS in Oxford.

The Right Decision: College or Gap Year?

By MiCaela Grzelak on May 21, 2020 5:34:25 PM NZST

'What if it’s the wrong choice?'
'What if I’m actually supposed to go to college?'
'What if my gap year becomes a waste of time or money?'

We so often find ourselves getting caught up in what is the right answer - what does God want me to do? Sometimes we feel like we can’t hear his voice; we get confused and have no idea what decision to make.

The Insanity of God - Bible Devotional

By Alec Kemper on April 22, 2020 8:00:00 AM NZST

Revelation 15:2-4 (ESV)

2 And I saw what appeared to be a sea of glass mingled with fire—and also those who had conquered the beast and its image and the number of its name, standing beside the sea of glass with harps of God in their hands. 3 And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying,

“Great and amazing are your deeds,

    O Lord God the Almighty!

Just and true are your ways,

    O King of the nations!

4 Who will not fear, O Lord,

    and glorify your name?

For you alone are holy.

    All nations will come

    and worship you,

for your righteous acts have been revealed.”
