Taylor's YWAM Austin Urban DTS
Organized by: Taylor Zehr
April 04, 2016
I've been thinking about doing YWAM since I was a little girl...and then God made it clear that I should go! So here I am, just graduated from a two-year college, and I am going to take a gap year. Austin's Urban DTS focuses on helping its students learn to be effective for the Christ in an urban setting. For 6 months, each of us will be doing a part-time internship, additional volunteer work, and schooling.
I am so excited for this opportunity. And I need your help! I definitly need prayer-- for openness to learning, for strength, and for faith. Living in the city is expensive, and I won't say that fundraising has been the most glamorous portion of the program so far. I don't want to tell people, "Invest in the Kingdom by investing in ME!" But let's be real, that's true. Not because I'm awesome, but because Jesus is awesome. I'm confident that He is in me. Just like He is working through you, I know He'll work through me and all of my flaws. Just as you've been blessed, please pray how the Lord is asking you to bless others. If you feel lead to support me in prayer or finances, wonderful.
The Lord has tasked us each to walk with him each and every day, and I know that the Lord will complete His good work in you as you are relevant in your own community and all through the earth. "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. . . They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world." ||Psalm 19:1, 3-4
