Dear Pastor Ken
School of Spiritual Deepening:
The above photo was one that I took in Scotland, from the Island of Arran overlooking the mainland! Yes, my latest news is that I am on my way back to YWAM Seamill, July 21 â€“ Oct. 1st (where I took my Leadership Development Course in 2007). The doors have opened for me to staff the School of Spiritual Deepening http://www.ywamseamill.org/spiritual-deepening/(quite an amazing story), which I am excited about it â€“ as it lines up with my studies in Spiritual Formation and what I am most passionate about in missions!
The school is an opportunity for missionaries to withdraw from ministry for a season (six weeks), with the purpose of intentionally drawing near to God, while in community. The students will be introduced to the concept of doing life and ministry out of â€œspiritual rhythmâ€, through engaging in a wide variety of spiritual disciplines and classroom lectures. Our prayer is that as they return to their fields of service, they will continue to serve the Lord from this place of deep heart-connection with Him. I, together with the YWAM Seamill staff team, will be doing some of the teaching, the facilitation of spiritual disciplines, and one-on-one mentoring.
Thanks for standing with me in this venture! Iâ€™m so aware that I can not do this without you. I will need to raise the money for the finances to come in, so please pray that God will provide. Please prayerfully consider whether you would like to give financially at this time. I would also love for you to partner with me in prayer.
In reflecting on this last month, I would say that it has been a call to prayer, both personally and corporately. As part of the Prayer Strategy Team for YWAM Vancouver, I have been quite involved in the facilitation and administration of the group â€“ which continues to be a huge learning curve! As a team, we are seeking to grow in discerning Godâ€™s voice and for how He is directing us in prayer for this season. A couple of weeks ago I taught on â€œFastingâ€ for our community (not that Iâ€™m an expert!! â€“ but it definitely was personally convicting) and then helped to facilitate our Day of Prayer and Fasting on March 26th.
Also, over this last month, after considerable prayer and discussions (with our leaders in Spain and Scotland) regarding bringing the Leadership Development Course to Canada, weâ€™ve decided to postpone this school until 2016. We are continuing to move forward on this (my team gets together to pray every second week on skype), while looking for the most suitable venue to host the school â€“ so please pray for us!
Please pray for:
- Wisdom and direction as we facilitate prayer for YWAM Vancouver
- A suitable venue for the LDC
- YWAM Vancouverâ€™s new DTS is starting April 2nd
- The second Intensive for my Spiritual Direction Course â€“ April 17th-23rd
- Heart preparation for me for Scotland
- Finances for Scotland: Flight and Transportation:: $1,546.37 Food & Accommodation: $1,238.58 Visa: $399.72
Thanks so much for partnering with me in prayer and in giving! God bless.
