Staff is Different from Student

This realization hit me harder than I anticipated it would. I always knew that I  was supposed to staff a DTS and I was more than happy to. I guess I just never realized how much more impactful this role is.

I am absolutely in love with all of our students and I am beyond blessed by each and  single one of them.

They’ve only been here a week and it already feels like I’ve known them for years. The amount of unity and connection that I’ve seen happen is so unreal. All the girls are such good friends and love each other deeply after literally 3 days together!

Before the all the students even arrived, there was a heavy presence of God on our school that couldn’t be denied.

All the preparation that went into gettings things ready for all of them to come was unending but so much fun.

As I was studying about the 7 Spheres of Society, God was so near to me and had his hand on everything.

The most common question asked of, and by 18 year olds and up is: What are you going to do with your life after highschool?every

 

Literally EVERYONE asks that question. The most common answers that I’ve come to discover are as follows; ” I don’t know yet, maybe college….” “I’m going to take a gap-year and go serve on the mission field….”

 

I was that person that said both. I never knew that I would end up being called into long-term missions.

I always told God that after I got my college degree I would go and serve him. If I am completely honest with myself, I know that I w

ould’ve gotten caught up in that life and not ended up going anywhere.

My question was; If I’m not in the mission field serving 24/7 am I pleasing God and furthering his Kingdom?

When doing this course, I discovered the importance of serving in the everyday job.

One great example of that is; Christian lawyers are sometimes seen as an oxymoron, because if you’re a follower of Christ how can you defend people who intentionally hurt His people?

In that God gave me a revelation. They are called to be a voice to the voiceless. We are supposed to be the ones who stand up f

 

or the broken and forgotten and “unimportant” people. The people who have been casted down so far that they don’t even know what justice is anymore. We are called to be the people that save God’s children and give them hope once more.

A lot of people have so much to say about their own government but it’s always negative, it’s always something that they see is being done wrong.

God did not intend for that! He wanted justice to be done amongst his people. He wanted the lonely, poor, and powerless to be heard, yet somewhere along the way we lost that….

 

I am so excited to see how God will move in thes

 

e next 6 months, not only in the students’ lives but also mine.

I’m so excited to see what he is going to bring through Business, Government, and Missions Track.

Until next time,
