We are at the end of our second week of the Ship Discipleship Training School, and what a week it has been! In the classroom things have been mostly ‘buisness and usual’ with Joanne Blaik teaching on ‘Identity’ throughout the week, helping us gain understanding of our unique gifts, talents and personalities and learning to celebrate these differences.
Ship Discipleship Training School 2012 Outside of the classroom, things have been a little busier that usual, Wednesday was ANZAC day here in Australia, a day where we take time to reflect and remember those who fought in the battle at Gallipoli during the first World War nearly 100 years ago. As a school we attended the dawn service at 5:00am, an early start, but well worth it to take time to remember those who had given their lives for others. Thursday was a special day here at YWAM Townsville, we hosted the former Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea during his visit to Townsville this week, and on Thursday he gave the keynote speech at a fundraiser for the YWAM Medical Ship. As a school, we were involved in a number of ways, from singing traditional songs from this islands as guests arrived, to serving tables at the breakfast and hosting a group of 40 students from PNG for breakfast, there was no shortage of things to keep us busy! It was a great day and one that we will remember for a long time!
The Serving Team!
