I heard God saying “Louis your wonderful work will begin with YWAM Port Of Peace.”
A long time ago God sent a lady from the Dominican Republic to give me a message. She shared a passage of scripture with me from Isaiah.
“Behold, you shall call a nation that you do not know, and a nation that did not know you shall run to you, because of the Lord your God, and of the Holy One of Israel, for he has glorified you.” Isaiah 55:5
I will be honest and admit, after she shared this with me, I did not understand exactly what God was trying to tell me. Though the lady said to me “Trust God and He will go forward with you!”. I kept this in the back of my mind and continued to put my trust in the Lord.
Fast forward to my DTS this past fall. DTS with YWAM Port De Paix was great! I learned lots and my faith grew immensely. I spent a lot of time seeking God, asking Him what would be next. What the lady told me came to mind and I prayed about it. Then I heard the Lord deep within my heart say “Louis I need you to go to Port De Paix with YWAM. Teach my children and youth there and sing my praise”.
After this I prayed, sought out wise counsel, asked questions… and in return found a multitude of answers and confirmations.
Wow God is faithful. I am excited to now officially say that I have been accepted as a staff member with YWAM Port De Paix! God still moving forward with me even though I didn’t realize that Isaiah 55:5 would drive me there. I am beyond excited to get to Port De Paix soon and see all that God does!
At first, the direction did not come right away, God taught me patience and trust through the waiting. I remember feeling like I needed to pray about applying for staff with YWAM Port-De-Paix after DTS. So I set off to do so. Though, as I prayed the first few times I did not hear a certain yes or no, or any other direction. So, I of course kept praying and asked God that if he wanted me to apply for staff that he would give me confirmation.
During my quiet time, one day at DTS God gave me a clear vision. I saw a picture of myself leading worship in a YWAM base. Initially, I felt surprised, though I know it was God telling me to apply for staff. I spent time thanking the Lord for what he had shared with me. Then set off to fill out my application.
Upon sending it in, I was shortly after being accepted for staff. I got to see our Father do so much while I was at YWAM for Discipleship Training School. I cannot wait to see what he does while I am there on staff.
